October 28, 2013

Good morning! Super busy weekend, but we got a LOT done & the living room looks great! Saturday I had a boiled egg for breakfast, cleaned the house, went grocery shopping & drove back in a storm from hell, took someone to work, grabbed lunch out at a great Italian place, & then headed off to the next county over for a GREAT housewarming / Halloween party. We weren't even to the party yet when someone called that they needed a ride from work. They waited quite a while before we were all the way back to Princeton to pick them up from work. Saturday's Sims game was Modern Mediterranean & my Sim Piper II Sisk (5th gen) just aged up into a child & is going to school & doing her homework. She's an excitable neurotic who's a Leo, likes Egyptian music, vegetarian lobster thermidore, & the color green. She's also a snob. Yesterday I took the dogs out, drove someone to work & the FD got toned out to a med call as I was out of district, I came back & went through the Sunday paper, made eggs over easy for breakfast, the FD got toned out for a trash fire, I cleaned the house, then we drove to our other house to grab some stuff, picked someone up from work, & then did a LOT of putting stuff away. Everything we've been bringing here from our other house was in the middle of the living room & it's now all put away. We can see our living room again! YAY!! It was a lot of stuff, the other house was used for storage & squeezing all of that stuff into this little house took some planning & Tetris-like skills, but it's done now & it's all out of sight & stored neatly. Yesterday's Sims game was Chateauroux & my Sim Rusty Keaton (2nd gen) is up to level 9 our of 10 of the private investigator career & he's mastered the logic skill which makes him great at his job. This career doesn't require level 10 of the career to achieve the lifetime wish, but instead 35 solved cases. I think he's almost half-way there. Since this job requires player interaction (it's one of the Ambitions add-on careers), I can't let him have a family until he reaches his lifetime wish or he never will. The good news though, is that he was so successful that he was able to take the age-freeze potion as a young adult, so I don't have to worry about him running out of time to have a family. He's immortal now (as long as he doesn't do anything stupid). He & his dad both can die, but not from old-age, since neither of them will ever age. This morning I took the dogs out & loaded up Modern Beach House. My Sim Jeanita Ware (3rd gen) is going to age up into a child as soon as I finish this blog. Jeanita is a loner who is friendly. She's a Cancer who likes soul music, pumpkin pie, & the color spice brown.

Have you heard of the latest fad? I'm not making this up, called "nude skydiving." They call themselves "Buff Divers." Absolutely true. I saw a nude skydiver today & I thought - I thought it was a solar eclipse because the sun was blocked out by a moon.
