A little sick, a little tired...

A little sick, a little tired, and a little whiny. I have a cold. Wah. I think it's going to be a short one, but for now I'm sniffly & whiny.

On a cheerful note though, I just have to post a photo of these beautiful roses my mother brought over for me on Ben's birthday - they're gorgeous! THANKS MOM!!!

Tomorrow (Friday)- is my Mom's birthday. She's got friends coming by to help celebrate and so Ben & I were over there today getting a few things ready. It's always fun messing up the kitchen together with Mom. Right, Mom? :-)

I guess I should let y'all know that the exam the other evening went OK. I made some stooopid mistakes that I'd love to blame on the cold medication - except that I wasn't on any at the time. Maybe if I were I'd have done better. Who knows. There were a few things that took me by surprise, but all in all I'm sure I did OK. I'll know better what to expect for the next couple of exams from this instructor.

On the Ben front (I know most of you read this blog for the Ben news): Ben is starting to "get" the idea of photos. He's also learning to do the fake smile for the camera. Here he was having a blast building a tower with his Tante Julianne, but he stops smiling for real to give me this look. I guess this phase is inevitable, huh?

The other thing he's starting doing is insisting on taking a photo of me everytime I try to take a photo of him. I suppose that's only fair.

    It's fun building towers with that boy, even though he does like to knock them down before I'm done. :)

  3. On the up side, it is a pretty good fake smile!
