I don't really have anything interesting to say, This is just an excuse to post these pictures.
The other day during dinner I decided Ben was looking especially cute and took out the camera to take a picture of him. As soon as he saw the camera aimed at him he put on a huge smile and said "CHEEEEEEESE!" He's never done this before and he hasn't done it since. What a weird little kid.
Today I was listening to a CD and at the end of one of the songs there was applause and Ben said, "Sank you, sank you, sank you." Like he was Elvis or something. Some days...
In other news, this afternoon I got a phone call from some vacuum selling company. They had been by the other day to enter me in a "free" draw. All I had to do was tell them my name, what type of vacuum I have, and of course, my phone number. Today they phone and tell me the big draw is still happening in September, but I've miraculously won one of the daily draws. I can pick one of two prizes: A free stay at some resort in the States or a set of knives. Now ordinarily I would have just hung up, but my family is constantly pestering me about the state of my knives so I interrupt her little speach to ask, "And what is it I have to do to get this prize that I have already won?" I think we all know the answer... a vacuum demonstration.
I still have to decide if the knives are worth me being at home when the guy shows up. (Is that mean?) These people are nutters. Do they really think I'm dumb enough to believe they don't call everyone who was willing to give out their phone number and tell them they've "won" a daily draw? Whatever. Free knives. We'll see. (At least then I could tell people I tried to remedy my knife situation right?)
The census job is going well... I guess I'm not supposed to tell people they're going to jail if they don't do it which is a let down for me, but you can't have everything right? It's still nice to get out of the house and last night I took Glen and his mom out for dinner with my very own hard earned moolah. Beckerama, workin' for the man.
Sam's smiling and talking, which is a very enjoyable change. He loves his chair from Trish and today he spent an hour amusing himself by kicking to make himself and the toys rock and talking away to them. I cleaned my room. It was fabulous.
