Lord, Save Me

From my teenager, that is! Attitude, thy name is thirteen-year-old girl. I could come up with a gazillion of these today. The good news is I now know the cause of my occasional headaches. They seem to correspond with her displays of teen angst. Yesterday, she declared all our Halloween decorations (of which we have a huge collection) all sucky. Not a one was scary enough for her highness! Our response? TS (in cleaner, more parent-appropriate language, of course), but the sentiment was the same. Today she tells us she has "like no decent clothes." everything is either too small, too big or isn't her style anymore. Again - TS.
In other news, some of you know it's now NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month. I've signed on this year and hope to complete a novel by month's end. But I wouldn't wager on me right now. Although I fully intend to do it, I have so many commitments this month, I'm not exactly sure when I'll be doing all this writing. I have a habit of putting out huge page counts for a short while, then stopping cold turkey. So, what'll it be? Time will tell.
What about you? Are you taking the challenge?

PS - It's a couple of hours later and the evil twin has disappeared. The good twin has apologized for the wicked behavior earlier and even offered to help with laundry!!! Just when I thought she was turning green and chanting spells in her bedroom!

I have one of those, too -- teen daughter that is. Lovely beast -- uh, er -- princess.

Recently, during homecoming at her school, they had "dress-up" days. One day was nerd day. The night before I found her in my closet. When I asked why, she said she needed clothes for nerd day.


And thank you.

Lovely beast.

Isn't that sweet. Mine told me the other day that ALL my shoes "had to go." Evidently, they are all so last century.

Oh what I get to look forward to, lol.

I'm not doing Nano this year. I'm not brave enough. Way too much going on.

Kelley - I guess you will be a little busy, new baby and all!
