Recovered From the Last Few Days and a New Toy

Ugh! The last few days have been a little rough. As a homeschool mom who's also self employed, I'm used to people questioning me about why and how I do things. That's life; you're never going to please everyone and people are entitled to their opinions. I usually do a pretty good job handling these comments and try to respond positively with patience and grace. 
However, the last three days have been a little heavy with the judgements. I've dealt with comments and questions from nearly everyone I've come in contact with and had to defend everything from how and why I do my job, how and why I homeschool, my personal feelings and reactions to things, just to mention a few. I've dealt with a coworker lying to me and being treated as though I were untrustworthy.  Like I said, I can usually handle these situations pretty well, but the sheer amount of negative comments put me off my game. But I spent a lot of time in solitude and prayer and am feeling a lot better.
We went computer shopping today; that was an experience! I'm not techy at all and the sheer range of possibilities was overwhelming. Not to mention the computer I had was extremely obsolete so all the systems that are everyday to most people are new to me. We found a nice HP laptop for just under $400. My super techy hubby deemed it worthy of purchase and helped me set it up. I still don't know all it does (Windows 8 completely mystifies me!), but at least I figured how to use the Internet on it. The next thing I have to figure out is how to upload pictures. 
If you made it this far, thanks for reading my rant. 
Blessings :-)
