Dear Daughters: When Your Space Bar Doesn’t Work




Dear Daughters,

I may or may not have mentioned that the space bar on my relatively new computer does not work properly.

That means I have to correct every. single. sentence I write because the computer randomly decides which spaces between words are needed or not needed.

This is VERY irritating, and yes I am taking it in to be repaired.

However, because I am blogging again, I haven’t wanted to be without my computer for 3 weeks..

I am choosing to live in the land of irritability.

Here is the point ( and please stop rolling your eyes. Eventually there is a point).


Irritability, whatever the cause, is a slippery slope.  

It is a place to avoid for extended visits.

It is usually a symptom of something else: a faulty space bar, lack of sleep, an imagined slight, or a little righteous indignation.

It may even be caused by a Dear Daughters post.

And now I have cracked myself up.

I hope you are laughing too.

The point is to find your own way to deal with it quickly and efficiently.

I  love you,


Oh…I almost forgot. 

There are remedies.

These work for me: 

laughter , doing the next right thing even if it is a sink full of dishes, the idea that I need to get over it , and a prayer to say thank you and to keep my mouth shut.


I love you-

A slippery slope indeed.
And most contagious!'s best to find a distraction (ie: doing the next thing)

I have a run away mouse! We'll I did-- until I got this new USED computer!
That'll teach that pesky mouse.

No truer words could have been said this morning! It is the slipperiest of slopes. Have a great weekend! ;)

Those daughters are soaking in those wise words I am sure. You always give them (and us) the best things to think about!

This is a fun dear daughters post, and I see your previous post has a zinnias photo. I love zinnias and have lots of tiny zinnias sprouting from seeds.

Well that space bar does sound like a challenge! UGH! :)

We have had similar challenges with our computer:) My Husband had a variety of letters that just didn't work! He ordered a new keyboard and recently he said it was doing it again:) Fortunately it didn't need another new keyboard! We have to deal with small problems throughout life, don't we! Sending hugs and (spaces) your way:)

Hugs, dear friend.
