• November 4, 2013 •

Good morning! Friday I got the mail, went to work, stopped at the bank, stopped for lunch for someone, came back & made breakfast, cleaned the house, & finished just in time to race up to the high school for Senior Night (2nd pic). Friday's Sims game was Japanese Lake Retreat & my Sim Olivia Sims (2ng gen) just aged up into a child & gained the neat trait in addition to hating the outdoors & being a couch potato. Saturday morning I took the dogs out, went to work, came back & made Canadian bacon for breakfast, cleaned the house, got the mail, took someone clothes shopping & ended up buying a LOT of clothes for myself while I was waiting for them, stopped at DQ for lunch, came home
& hung up all my new clothes, showered, checked out Pinterest, & took the dogs out. Saturday my retirement Sim used her beautiful oven to make a breakfast calzone & also some fresh baked country bread (3rd & 4th pics). Saturday's Sims game was Waddesdon Manor (5th pic) & since it was a brand new game, I created Queen (1st gen). Queen is a couch potato w/ star quality who is a schmoozer who dislikes children & is a perfectionist. Queen's lifetime wish is to live the Lifestyle of the
Rich & Famous. She likes spaghetti, custom music, & the color lime. She's a Taurus. Her furry companion is Sheba, an Irish Setter who is a hunter, hydrophobic, & destructive. Queen has been going to work at the film studio & has been working on her skills. Sunday morning I took the dogs out & went to work at 2 different jobs before coming home & making scrambled eggs for breakfast, then headed back out to go grocery shopping, came back &
showered, then played a little blackjack on dish, took the dogs out, had a Hormel Complete for lunch, made sure the link to my eBay store worked from my personal Website, downloaded another movie from Blockbuster, updated our Sim replica of our house (6th pic), then loaded up 2nd life & visited Rio (8th pic), & I really need to figure out how to do things in that game. I have a car, but have no idea how to use it. After a little visit in Rio, I settled down on
the sofa & worked on my entrelac afghan. Yesterday my replica Sim went to work for the day, my retirement Sim brushed her teeth (7th pic), & the game for the day was LizC864 4 & my Sim Christine (2nd gen) has been going to school, doing her homework, & working on her skills. This morning I took the dogs out & my Sim-self had dinner, my retired Sim-self grilled hot dogs (9th pic), & then I loaded up Tahoe Pines. My Sim Michael Shallow (2nd gen) is working on his
skills & just chillin' out until he figures out what he's going to do with is life. His lifetime wish is to be swimming in cash & he's almost accomplished that. I guess it'll be down to online dating after that because he doesn't work outside the home & will have no opportunity to meet someone at work. He knows some people from school, but by the time he achieves his lifetime wish, they most likely will be out of his life or married.
Character rich in integrity, maturity, & the Abundance Mentality has a genuineness that goes far beyond technique, or lack of it, in human interaction.

It's a myth that if a human is exposed to the vacuum of space, he'd instantly explode from decompression. In reality, the news is slightly better: if he exhales slowly but continuously, he could survive for 15-30 seconds.
