November 18, 2016: Dealing with gossip and rumors

This week has been hard, really hard. It has been painful and upsetting. I have been dealing with a lot of gossip and rumors for what seems like an eternity.

Its been one of those days

I think all of us have had ‘one of those days’. Well, it’s a Monday, and it’s a Monday after a time change so I have a strong feeling it will be one of those days every day for the next week or so. If you have young kids, special needs kids, or maybe even no kids then you know what I mean. That one hour time difference can wreak havoc to your normal routines.
