People love to have all of the facts. They hear a tidbit of information or half of a story and find it necessary to ask as many questions as possible in order to feel as though they have all of the details. Then they piece together the information that they have gathered, add in anything they feel is missing and share the “story” with others. Sadly, much of what they share is fiction, and that is how rumors and gossip are created.
By the end of the day, when I get into bed I am truly TIRED!! My body is exhausted, my nerves are spent and emotionally I am pooped! I try to live each day to its fullest and I definitely try to accomplish as must as I physically and emotionally can - but I am guilty, like many other busy women, of putting my needs at the bottom of the to-do-list.
My husband and I were very lucky this summer. We had the privilege of traveling to California for 9 days while our three children were at sleep away camp in the Laurentian's.
So.... it was just the two of us now! The kids were off, the house was strangely quiet and my mind was racing. While I was pretty psyched about the cleanliness of my child-free house, being alone with my husband felt almost awkward. What was I going to do without the pre-occupation of my children’s every move? I missed them. A lot.
