I accidentally put "Overlord" at first. Hmmm.
Weekend Downer: Heartbreak is finding the house of your dreams and then being told it was put on contract the day before. The house hadn't even been on the market three days. I thought for sure it would last at least one weekend. As we left, Hoop and I stared at each other miserably. I kept blinking so I wouldn't cry. The real estate agent hurried us along. I think she was nervous at the sudden loss of momentum our search had taken. I just wanted to go home.
The Upside: After dinner at my parents' house last night, Mom armed the family with orange tape and tennis shoes. This week they're having land cleared in preparation for horses. Mom wanted to mark some trees before they started demolition and requested everyone's help. "Now you know how to tell a good tree from a bad one right?" She asked me. "Not really, no." "The good trees are the ones with the birds nests in them. Just don't tell Papa Bear I said so." My Mom has a heart of GOLD.

Daily Hoop Conversation:
Tink: Mom really wants to buy the horse across the street. The only problem is, it's two years old and never been broken.
Hoop: That should be easy to do though. Don't you just break a bottle of water over it's head?
Hoop: Yeah. The water makes them think they're bleeding.
Tink: *Sobs with laughter* Tell me you're joking!
Hoop: I'm serious. Someone told me their foreheads are so hard it doesn't hurt them.
Tink: Would it hurt you if I broke a bottle of water on your head?
Hoop: Not if you did it just right.
Tink: Whatever you do, don't mention this theory to my parents, alright?
Hoop: Oh-Kay... But you're going to feel pretty foolish when you find out I'm right.
