We moved in our new home a few months ago, right next door to some very kind and.....er..... nosy people. The daughter is in her forties but is special needs. Most of the time she greets us when we get home and asks us ten thousand questions. "What you got there? Where have you been? Why you got that in your car? You been at work?". Most of the time I so gently answer her questions and just move toward the door.
I was REALLY worn out when I got home today. I saw her coming. I couldn't go through this today. I told her before she even walked up "I'm not feeling well, you may not want to come close to me today". She didn't understand what I said so i had to repeat it. The kids were all in bad moods, crying, and yelling about this and that, and we had groceries to get in. My kids knew I wasn't sick. I could have just told her the kids are grouchy and I need to get them in, but for some odd reason I chose to lie. What should I say to my kids so they don't think I'm a big fat lier?
