Laughter the best medicine

Sunday night Sheldon and I watched “Fun with Dick and Jane”, that comedy with Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni. I have not laughed like that at a comedy in a very long time. We were both in stitches. I mean I laughed until my stomach hurt. I had tears running down my face and we had to stop the movie a couple times to compose ourselves. I am sure the neighbors thought we had gone completely crazy. I remember seeing the original of this movie at the Drive-In in Grenada when I was a child but I did not remember it being this funny. But then again I am sure that I can now appreciate the humor in the remake much more, plus Jim Carrey is a very funny man and Tea Leoni is an awesome actress. It felt so good to laugh like that, especially being able to share it my dear husband.

I really needed a good laugh to lift my spirits. It has been really blah with all the rain we have been getting. It has been raining or overcast since last Tuesday and we don’t expect to see sun until maybe tomorrow. So watching this movie on Sunday put me in a really good mood and I have been able to ignore the lack of sun. I guess what they say about laughter is true…it really is the best medicine.
So if you get a chance to see this movie I hope you enjoy it as much as we did

Ok, I am sold. I will rent it as soon as I get back. St. Lucia is the same - hot as ever! My mum is doing ok but I think she is not overly impressed with my cooking (laugh). I guess the flooding hasn't affected you....thank God!
