Mom and John came to dinner tonight. We have been planning this for several day and I knew right away something was up when they got here. So I took Mom off to the side and asked what was going on. She said John had some work done on his corvette and it started leaking again. He took it back to the company that fixed it because it is under warranty and they told him they have to special order the part but it will not be in until late September. So John was really down about it and not in the best of moods. And she thought about canceling because he was so moody. So I wanted to try to help cheer him up and try to get his mind off it for awhile.
One thing I have learned is when I am upset if I workout or even play a game on the Wii it helps with the stress and makes me feel better. So I suggested John play a game of bowling against me. It took a little coaxing but he eventually gave in and decided to play. Within 20 minutes he was laughing at himself because he kept missing. Then he hit a strike and was doing the chicken dance all over my living room just laughing up a storm. Even Mom was laughing at his antics. So by the time they left going home John was in a better frame of mind. And he did have a good time and even said Thank you so I guess I did do a good thing after all.
