It really wasn't out of no where although in hindsight I probably overreacted. And I really didn't hate on Mario, I like him, I just said he liked drama. Actually that was my original statement about both of you which I didn't think was that offensive. I don't even hate you, I just thought you were bitchy to me when I first posted and I was bitchy in response and it took on a life of its own. I actually think you're entertaining and funny at times and sometimes dramatic and bitchy. Good and bad like every other human being on the planet. I added fuel to the fire and was unnecessarily cunty (like in this thread) so for that I apologize.
My daughter starts working with her in 2 weeks. I know that I brag about my children too much, but I single-handedly raised them, so their accomplishments always give me a sense of pride.
She will be traveling with the team to care for/groom/assist in training the horses. The money isn't awesome, but what it adds to her resume, which is already stellar (hence why she got the job) - is unbelievable. Room and board and travel expenses covered. The team does a lot of traveling that she will be joining them on for shows - she leaves for California on the 27th, then out west a few months later. Brooke has her mom's sense of "wander-lust", so she is VERY excited about that aspect as well.
I'm going to miss her greatly - but I am VERY proud of her and the direction her life is heading.
I do have to take her cat for her - but mine is gone anyways so I can deal with that.
