Work situation - am I worrying too much?

I have asked my husband and sister, who are both professionals and say I'm worrying too much. There are three companies involved in this scenario: the first company I worked at for only 6 months, then had another short-term job involved after that. I took the 6-month job off my resume for a while because I didn't want to look like a job-hopper. Anyway, I interviewed at a company 6 weeks ago that saw my resume without the 6-month job on it; they ended up rejecting me for unrelated reasons. I put the 6-month job back on my resume, and then got hired at a new company last week. So it turns out this new company will be working with the company that rejected me (they are both gov't contractors that work on the same contract)...so I may be working directly with the phone interviewers that rejected me (I hope not though). I am probably being paranoid in thinking that they'll ever figure out I put the 6-month job on the resume for one company but left it off for the other, right? *I was completely truthful with the company that ultimately hired me; all jobs were on that resume and verified in a background check. People have advised me that if I'm ever confronted about it, to just say that I accidentally sent an old, outdated resume to the other company. Hope this makes sense, sorry for the confusion...
