Remember this baby?

Well, he turned into this 1 year old:


I have never done anything so simultaneously frustrating and rewarding. Mostly rewarding :)

I was tagged by PixelRN, so here goes:

1. I have a few goals in life: I want to someday design and build my own house, see the northern lights and visit the 7 wonders of the world. That last one might be a little difficult, though, seeing as how I’m not very fond of traveling.
2. For one summer in college, I worked at Eastman Kodak in a lab. I’m amazed that I can’t remember exactly what I did, but I know it had to do with testing the silver emulsion for…. something. Anyway, it was a fascinating job and I still remember my coworkers there, although I don’t keep in touch with them anymore.
3. I make mosaics.
4. If I could have any job in the world, I would want to be an astronaut.
5. I was married on Halloween.
6. I love playing video games. I can remember playing Mah Jongg on my dad’s old 386 and Missile Command on the Atari. I’ve graduated to Nintendos and Xbox’s now, but it has truly been a life long “hobby.”
7. Last and least, I have ADD. I’m sure no one noticed, but I posted only 7 times during my pregnancy last year. That’s because I wasn’t taking my meds and the desire to write pretty much vanished. I was diagnosed and started treatment in college. One semester I was about to flunk out of the nursing program and the next semester I was on the dean’s list. Pretty
impressive turnaround. Think what you will about ADD, but finding out how to manage it changed my life.

Honestly, I don’t know who to tag – I feel like I’ve read this meme from pretty much everyone, but I guess I don’t remember seeing one from Kevin MD or GruntDoc.

those mosaics are gorgeous! happy birthday to your little angel…they do grow so fast!

Beautiful mosaics.

Fascinating! Thanks for obliging me…

Your little guy is so adorable. I love the hat.

Your mosaics are wonderful. I’ve always loved mosaics and working with tiles. Do you sell them or is more of a hobby?

He got so big! What on earth do you feed him? He is precious.

What a doll – and where the heck did the year go??????????

So, what brought you to the hospital today?
