Judging a Book By It's Cover

I realize I have not posted for a while.  Imagine that life keeps me busy and that I don't have time to sit down at the computer to type...dad's surgery, holidays, vacation, mom's surgery, sick kids...blah, blah, blah...

But today I have a nagging headache, and it's one of those days that I have got something on my mind that I can not seem to shake.  GOSSIP...RUMORS...PASSING JUDGEMENT

Should it really bother me that someone said something to someone else who then told someone else something about me...well not really something about me, but basically, that the original someone doesn't care for me?  The reasons that the person doesn't care for me don't even matter. I have probably spoken to the original person a total of 5 times in my life.  And never about myself...well I guess maybe it was...I always talk about my kids.

So, why do I feel like I need to defend myself in my head? Isn't that ridiculous that it should stick with me?  

I really don't care if people talk about me, actually I think it is kind of funny...I really lead a very boring life, I have a few friends, but I don't go partying and socializing non-stop.  It's just not me.  My life revolves around God, my kids and my husband.  Maybe it should revolve around keeping my house clean, that would probably make my husband happy. 

But in the mean time, if I meet someone I don't think I like, I think I will take the opportunity to get to know them a little better.  Usually, that is all it takes with me.
