House One-Day 25

I must say I hate the new bag law where we are suppose to cover our heads with bags while in the neighborhood. I’m the only person who lives here and I did not vote for it. So I refuse, Bob just looks silly wearing it. So Bob stopped by for a visit and I was really excited to see him. I had some big news to share.

Bob took the news of me being pregnant really well. He was really happy about it even though you can’t tell with that bag over his face. We talked for most of the afternoon and it was decided that he would ask Eliza for a divorce and move in with me. From what Bob told me after he got back from talking to her she took the news really well. Who wouldn’t she kept everything the house, and money. Bob only showed up with his clothes that evening.

Bob has been really helpful around the house he even set up the nursery for our little one. He worked on it for weeks and wouldn’t let me take a peek. It was amazing to me how caring and thoughtful he could be plus he isn’t half bad at interior design.

My belly is growing non-stop and Bob can’t stop constantly trying to talk to the baby. He stops me every chance he gets. *shakes head* I really just can’t wait to meet the little one. Till next time folks this is Elizabeth signing off.

House One: Day 20

Hello Internet World, Bob stops by regularly now to see the new pictures I have taken. I loved looking at the old family albums he brought over. I also showed him my designs for my house. I want to build a small home on this lot. He gave me a few tips and said my designs looks awesome.

Bob came over one night and one thing led to another and we kissed. I know he is married but I feel this connection to him I can’t explain. Besides if his marriage is loveless what’s the harm in it anyway. I’m sure I will get some people who judge me and say it isn’t right but it felt right. He is happy and I am happy that is all that matters. Besides it was just a kiss.

Well remember when I said it was only a kiss. Well Bob stopped by again and we wound up in my bush. I won’t share the details but I saw stars. So maybe there is more to this than I originally thought. He feels the same way I feel towards him. We talked for hours after and then he went home in the wee hours of the morning. I wonder what his wife thinks. Does she even care where her husband is. I highly doubt it since he is always over here and she never bothers to call or look for him. Don’t worry I would never ask him to leave his wife but I am not going to lie. I enjoy our time together and plan to spend as much time as I can with him.

Bob asked me on a date we went to a little bar and played Don’t wake the Lama. It was fun to be out and about with him. We talked about my house plans and how in a few short days I will start construction on my home. It was nice to spend some quality time with him and just relax. I have been so focused on my project in Oasis springs that it was nice to sit and relax.

There it is folks my home I love it. It is not finished yet by any means but we are getting there. I’m so excited to show Bob when he comes over. I can’t wait to see what he thinks. Till next time folks this is Elizabeth signing off.

House One: Day 10

Hello world, there she sits my beautiful new computer. I can’t wait to start writing and earning some real money. Apparently you can become famous if you books sell. I so happy I was able to save up to afford this.

Of course you had to know I would sit down and start writing. I started off small and wrote a children’s book. I haven’t submitted it to a publisher yet I am holding off until I have written a few just in case my first couple of books get rejected.

Bob has been coming over a lot lately. He thinks it is amazing what I am doing. He would love to see the old towns back to their former glory. He and I both know that won’t happen in our lifetime, but every time I talk about my build plans for the home here he gets this sparkle in his eyes. Then he goes off talking about how good the towns used to be and what they could be now. We talk about pretty much everything, he gets me and I get him. It is great to have a friend I can talk to and understands my dream and goals in life.

Meet Vlad, this dude is just as weird as that crazy magic lady. He came over boosting how he is the top vampire over in Forgotten Hallow. I swear I must attract all the crazies, I brushed him off and headed to sleep. I didn’t wake up with any puncture wounds in my neck. So safe to say he isn’t a real vampire just a nut job that wanted to use my computer. Sorry for the short post but Bob is coming over to show me a few old photo albums that his grandfather had of Willow Creek and Oasis Springs back in the day. Till next time this is Elizabeth signing off.

House One: Day Four

Hello Virtual World, It’s Elizabeth back again with an update on my progress. It has been a pretty dull few days not much going on. But I did start a little garden to help boost my income. Still don’t have any money for a computer yet but I will get there eventually.

Though I was able to purchase a pop up portable shower. I may sleep outside but at least I don’t smell anymore. Though the cost of the water to fill it is crazy so I only shower when necessary.

I met this interesting Lady as well she seemed nice but a little crazy. She talked about magic and a magic realm. Wanted me to go with her to see it. I’ve seen those true crime shows I would never have been seen again. I played nice and got away from her as soon as possible.

I also met Bob Pancakes, his family was one of the founding families of Willow Creek. He seems like a sweet fellow. I asked him where his wife was but apparently they are married only by paper. She does her own thing he does his. Their families made them get married as a way to strengthen both their business. My heart goes out to him. Who would want to be in a loveless marriage.

Well folks that is all I have, I know not much but I’ll be back soon. Just need to make progress on my work. Till next time. This is Elizabeth signing off.

Legacy: Chapter 2

I apologize I can’t remember the sim’s name she is talking to. They were really hitting it off . Pearl was talking her ear off, I had a glimmer of hope she might have found someone but she is a teen. Pearl is a teacher after all so maybe this is one of her students.

Tomoko Suzuki came and visited Pearl. She met her at the Salty Paws Saloon. Pearl spends most her time there watching TV or attempting to socialize. It is like her second home. They seem to be hitting it off really well and Tomoko is single so I can’t wait to see what happens here. So far no whims related her but they both keep getting though bubbles with each other in them. Maybe they are both too shy to make a move.

Tomoko is back again for a visit. I really think these two have a thing for each other. Pearl got the adoring sentiment towards Tomoko. So I am just going to watch this play out.

After her visit with Tomoko Pearl headed to the library to grade some papers since she has no computer at home. She met a few people but no one that talk to her for more than 5 seconds.

Legacy: Chapter 1

It’s weird to start all over again with a legacy. I’ve been playing for awhile now and enjoying watching Pearl do her own thing. It was refreshing to just sit back and let her be herself.

I settled her in Brindleton Bay and it was raining. I don’t know if that is a good sign but Pearl seemed to enjoy it. Her first action was to play in the rain. Maybe she enjoys the rain as much as I do. It is calming to me and relaxing I have always loved what people consider gloomy things. Maybe it’s because it is the emotion I relate to the most. Its what I feel most days. So for now I’m gong to take it as a good sign.

I started her off with her funds at 1800 and built her a little room with a bed. Not much to do at the moment. We sit and wait for the welcome wagon. I want her to meet and greet people. I also want her to chose her own spouse to spend her sim days with.

The Delgato family stopped by to welcome her to the neighborhood. Pearl might enjoy the rain but they were not to happy to be stuck outside. Keeping true to my word I just had Pear introduce herself and then let her steer the conversation. Sadly she didn’t get very far in the conversation. Maybe Pearl is more of a listener than a talker. Or maybe she prefers solitude instead.

I took her to the bar in town just to see how she would interact. She sat down and started watching the cooking channel. Gain those skills girl.

She struck up a conversation with Marcus so maybe she isn’t so anti-social. Wolfgang joined soon later but he just insulted her and left.

It has been a few sim days and she has not taken an interest in anyone so far. I brought her to the spice festival to meet new people but so far she just enjoys listening to the music.

I wonder if she prefers to just be alone and if all she is really looking for is friends. Would it be so bad if she just ends up adopting kids on her own and does not find a spouse. Only time will tell maybe she will find her one true love in old age or maybe when she is a adult. Or maybe she is just a strong independent woman that doesn’t need someone to feel whole.

House One: Day One

My name is Elizabeth Spears and here I am sitting on the bench next to my new home an empty lot. I am crazy for taking this offer I know I am. My family and friends back in San Myshouno all think I’m crazy. Why would I agree to take on this challenge of roughing it and helping build Oasis Springs and Willow Creek back to it’s former glory.

To be honest I have no idea why I just knew I needed a challenge in my life and this screams challenge to me. I have to blog about my journey and when I am gone my kids will have to continue the blog. That is the craziest part about this. I have to get my first born to agree to continue on with the plan. I am sure that will be a fun conversation later on in life.

This rundown diner is all Oasis springs has to offer. Like that is it otherwise it is an empty desert. I can’t tell how the food taste there I don’t have any money. That is part of the deal I start over here on an empty lot with no money. Hopefully I didn’t bite off more than I can chew.

I’m hoping this experience will help me when it comes to pursuing my career as a writer. I just need a computer to start working on it. Hopefully I can save up enough money to buy one.

They did not leave me empty handed when they dropped me off here. I got a handy dandy fishing pole and I got to keep my cell phone so I can blog. Though it was weird asking strangers who use this town to walk and bike ride to take my picture.

I caught my first fish If I had a fire pit I could roast it. Oh well maybe someday. I will sell it and earn some money. You can sell just about anything online now a days.

I tried my hand at digging up collectibles. If you get fossil they can go for a pretty penny.

These old wells are great for catching frogs. Breeders pay top dollar for rare ones. Though they are so slimy and I am not a fan of frog hunting.

My haul for the day not to bad if I do say so myself. I think I will be completely fine out here on my own. Though I do miss everyone back home.

I even earned enough money for a bed and a bush for when mother nature is calling me.

Even after a good day I still felt lonely and sad. Not my proudest moment but I cried under the covers.

I stumbled upon this little food stand and decided to order food with what little money I had left.

I decided after some food to introduce myself to at least one person and have an actual conversation not just ask them to take my picture. I met Candy she seems nice. She let me know I’ve been on about every news channel for what I’m doing. She thinks I’m crazy but wished me luck on my journey.

I spent a little time before bed stargazing. It is very peaceful and quiet around here. So you all are wondering why Oasis Springs and Willow creek are so empty. You see when more and more towns began popping up people started moving and trying new things. Soon no one wanted to live here and the homes became so broken down it was decided to demolish them all.

Though with the new towns getting more and more populated then government decided to try and rebuild the old founding towns and breath life back into them. I’m the first and only person crazy enough to jump at the idea of an adventure like this.

I won’t post every day like this some days I’ll post one to three days together it all depends on how much happens in a day. The first day I had to share by itself it was a special day. It marked the beginning of my journey and my future families journey.

Till next time-Elizabeth is signing off.

ISBI 1-8

Emma aged up into a pretty kitty. No sign of ghost Penny. Though I keep mourning her. I hope she turns up soon.. I miss her.

Jane got a promotion at work and she looks so proud of herself. She is bringing a lot of money and saving up for their wedding.

Everything is all set for their wedding. They are getting married on Saturday. To make it a little more challenging they will not be keeping any money they get from reselling these items.

Harvestfest is right around the corner so I had Jane decorate the house and Alice came out to inspect her work.

Harvestfest came and Jane went an made offerings to all the gnomes. Thankfully she did not anger any of them.

Jane and Alice enjoy I nice Harvestfest meal together. I’m so excited I can’t wait for their wedding.

Alice’s and Jane’s birthdays came and that meant taking the potion to reset they age meter. They can’t be raising kids as elders.

Jane still mourns Penny everyday but she still hasn’t returned. I miss her.

ISBI 1-7

Jane is back on campus.. those 5 days when by in a blur. She is tutoring other students for her aspiration. Though I don’t know how well she does at it since she isn’t the greatest student herself.

Jane spends some quality time with Alice..they make such a cute couple.

Penny has aged up into a adorable grumpy old cat. She is so pretty.

Jane did it she finally has her degree. I’m so proud of her. Now she is working as an investor. She is slowly working her way up the career ladder. They need to invest in the home so they can raise some nooboos.

Alice and Penny decided to nap together on the couch.

Meet Emma Potter the new addition to the family. Penny won’t be with the family for much longer so I decided to get them a new cat. Though my plans are to brink back Penny as a ghost cat in the household. Though Jane is paying more attention Alice. So much love in her eyes makes my heart melt.

RIP Penny

Penny only lived for one more day. I was heartbroken and Alice was at work when it happened. Though I can’t wait for her to come back as a ghost cat.
