The shelf holding the computer monitor gave way and the monitor fell down and hit the glass of cranberry juice. The connections for the monitor and the computer came undone. My daughter, who had been at the computer, was distraught and demanded that I get dressed and drive to the library to finish an on-line transaction so that she could have the blue jeans she wanted. My father told me to lower my voice. When you have an emotionally distraught teenager the fact that you were crawling on a cranberry juice-soaked carpet in your pajamas and have wet, sticky knees is no excuse for yelling at her! She can't help being compulsive! The upside was that the library has some superb books on teenage depression. I have been reading them.

I finally got the computer connections together at 1:40 AM...but the components of the computer are in disarray and the repairman isn't due until Monday. If I disappear again, you will know why.

No one knows why the shelf gave way and fell.

haha funny (but only because my computer has not suddenly stopped working, nor has a shelf collapsed this month)!!
I hope your daughter forgives you... you are a very nice mum for actually going to the library, you know...
You deserve a nice chocolate, or a special coffee, or an icecream for being such a good mum...

Sorry to hear that Deb.YOU know that you can always cure your daughter''s problems and the computer problems by getting a brand new machine before the repair man shows up. Wishing you lots of luck.Please don''t disappear from here.

Wow. Every time I read one of your posts I can''t help thinking how amazing you are as a mom. Jeans would have been the last thing on my mind if that happened to me.... I hope she isn''t going through a bout of depression? (((Hugs)))

Deb, all I have to say is, you are a better woman than I am! (Seriously though, your post made me LOL. Without our sense of humor, how would we ever get through?!?)

Hi Debs


I think you deserve huge congrats for maintaining your sense of humor through it all -- or at least, for recovering it soon after the fact!

Hope the rest of the day goes better.

Sounds like a fun day.


Were I in your shoes, neither my father nor my daughter would like me at this point. I would have yelled had I felt like it, and nobody would have gone anywhere after throwing a hissy fit. Well, perhaps to their room.

But then, I''m a ''meanie''.

My teenage daughter turns 20 in a couple of months. Thanks for the memories. They do grow up and it does get much better.

I''m trying to recall if I would have taken her to the library. Probably not, but she never was into clothes in the first place.

But, I do remember that everything was always my fault, therefore I''m sure that it is all your fault that the shelf gave way and the monitor hit the glass of cranberry juice.
