I don't know if anyone else out there experiences this, but I have a project on-going (and yes, it's the super-secret project) that has turned into a teenager. I don't like it any more. It's surly and it's not cooperating with me at all. When I work on it I'm having to WORK on it and getting a significant workout in the process. While I'm not upset about the exercise, I would like this to be easier. I want to love this project and be happy with it and have it bring me great joy just like I know it'll bring great joy to those who receive it when it's finished.
But, for now, it's a teenager and I'd rather kick it out of my house than keep it around.
And once I am finished with this project (hopefully by this weekend) I'm going to have a graduation ceremony and then drop it in the PO to send to the person who I'm in cahoots with. I have absolute confidence that she will turn in this surly teenager into a lovely full-grown project who will be a joy to be around.
Until then, I'll deal with its bad attitude and hopefully finish raising it so I can be rid of it for a while!
