Has Anyone Seen My Mojo?

...my quilting mojo, my stitching mojo, my housecleaning mojo??? I lost it all about two months ago and I am just starting to find it again. What have I been doing? Well, let's see--I became the mother of a teenager, survived my son's first year of middle school, finished out my teaching year, am currently in the middle of house remodeling project that seems never ending. We got new tile in the kitchen/utility area in January. We are currently getting a new bathroom upstairs, new windows on the first floor, new carpet. That has been keeping me occupied because I don't like living in an uproar, so remodeling isn't really my cup of tea. Not to mention Sunday our air quit. It was so hot in this house yesterday I thought I would croak, the dog really thought she would croak. When she wasn't barking her fool head off, she was lying around panting. But all is well, the new bathroom walls are ready for me to paint, so the carpenters can move on the next stage. The air conditioner is fixed, and for the moment I am happy!

This being the mother of a teenager isn't quite what it is cracked up to be, just so you know. First, we got a cell phone for Christmas. I don't have anything against communicating with others, I just don't think you need to be doing it at 11:15 at night. Then there is the girl thing. I really don't think he is that interested in having a girlfriend, but there is a girl wanting to be his girlfriend. She is a very personable, cute, sweet, blonde, but...
I am definitely not ready for that. And, ofcourse, the neverending "I don't know," the kid apparently doesn't know anything about anything. Drives me crazy I tell you! He has his first baseball game of the season Friday night, a doubleheader. Now I must confess as much as I hate those metal bleachers, I sure have missed going to ballgames. He did go out for track this spring that was okay, but track meets are more of a hurry up and wait sort of affair.

So there you have it, that is what I have been up to. Hopefully real soon I will have some stitching pictures, some quilt pictures, some new bathroom pictures etc. to show you. But in the meantime, here is some new teenager pictures. This time next year we will probably be taking driver's ed....can't believe it!
