Teenage Attitude, Being Busy and a New LO

I CANNOT stand the teenage attitude of the youngest one right now. I am struggling (and have been) with him even being in the same room with me, much less the same house. He has really become a young man that stands for something that I don not like. He is dishonest, his mouth is filthy, and he accepts no repsonsibility for anything. I always say: "for every action, there is a reaction. There are choices in life." However, noone would see this temperament of him. He can put the charm on. If only the walls of the house could talk. His own father doesn't even see it. Well, he does see it, but refuses to do anything about it. I will save that post for another day.

I have so much coming up in the next couple of weeks, both professionally and personally. I really need to take some time and make myself a "me" calendar so I can view everything at a glance. It is so difficult to keep everyone's schedule straight. All activities are recorded on a family calendar but I am always afraid I will miss something. Just me alone: appointments, dinner and breakfast "dates", registration for summer classes: GASC and VF, design work for two upcoming classes, my first photo shoot that I will be doing for a friend, an album that I was commissioned to make, three swaps for ATC's, NSD crop (so happy about this one!), stamping convention in two weeks (another fun time!), acryllic class, prep work for two weeks worth of art camp (volunteer work...what was I thinking about this committment?)...not to mention all the deadlines at school because I am now heading into the final phase before summer break (do you see me smiling?). This is my busy time of the year!

Check out my newest LO. It is the cover page for a club that I joined. By the end of a year, I will have created 30 LO's all centered around me. I am really excited to complete my All About Me album.
I am still on strike...4 weeks and counting!

Hey that pic looks familiar! LOL! Love it and great that you get to focus on youself, even if it's just in 30 pages!!

Sorry about DS. I dread those years. I'm having a hard enough time with a 10 year old.

Love the layout with the cam in rearview...and I sympathize re: the teenagers. I survived two of them.
