Round 8: Autumn 2010
last update/next update

Thomas Marlowe is 23, Patsy Greene and Camryn Mitchell are 19 and Alexa and Brooke Harper are 18.

Brooke throws a sports party although it has nothing to do with sports. She just wants to see Charlie. He still has a couple of years of highschool left so they don't see each other very often. Charlie isn't very interested in the academics so he might skip college altogether.

Our house feels a bit crowded sometimes. We "kids" all have our own rooms but sometimes I feel that's not enough. I can't wait for Thomas to graduate from college so we can move in together.

Narrated by Paige Harper

Jack and I have been talking a lot about our impending wedding. Originally we wanted to get married in the summer but now we both feel like there's no reason to wait. We don't want to have a huge reception with lots of guests, just our families.

Red dress

Narrated by Brooke Harper

Mom and dad have been pressuring me and Alexa about university a lot lately. I'm definitely going if I can get enough scholarships but Alexa still hasn't decided if she wants to go.

All my life

last update/next update

Alexander and Bobbie Greene are 58, Charlie, Dixie and Janie are 15.

Narrated by Alexander Greene

I feel like I have 10 kids instead of four. Patsy moved to college a few months ago but the triplets' friends practically live with us because there's always a table full of teenagers when it's dinner time.

Speed of sound

Narrated by Denise Whitfield

Ben and I have been working hard for promotions. I have been working as an intern in dad's administration ever since graduation and he just made me his campaign manager. Ben left the construction company and has just become an architect. We decided to celebrate by having dinner at Twilight Zone. Not the most romantic place but it's right across the street from our apartment.

Until I die

Narrated by Camryn Mitchell

Patsy and I live in the same dorm with her cousin Thomas. He's a few years older but he starts college at the same time with us. They're constantly punching each other which seems a bit weird for me. I don't have any siblings or cousins so I'm not really used to that kind of stuff.

Round 8: Spring 2009
last update/next update

Anthony Midlock is 35, Rianna is 39 and Emily is 1.

Narrated by Rianna Midlock

If someone had told me 20 years ago that I would be happy being married with kids I would have thought they were completely insane. But I am happy beyond my wildest dreams. Seeing Emily's face in the morning is the best thing.

Round 8: Winter 2009
last update/next update

Ryland and Jackie Whitfield are 58, Dawn and Zach are 5.

Narrated by Ryland Whitfield

I'm so glad I forgave Jackie for having an affair. In fact I think it has only made our relationship stronger. We love to lie in bed in the morning and just enjoy each other's company.

More problems

Apparently the weirdness with Alexandra and Carlo was just the beginning. The hood has gone completely bonkers and I haven't been able to fix it even though I've tried every possible method I can think of.

5 sims in 3 separate households have become invisible (Erin & Regan Fielding, Ben Cooper and Jack & Olivia Robinson). Their icons are still in the UI with other family members but you can't direct them to do anything and the game crashes if I try ie. change their appearance via SimBlender. I moved the uni graduates into those households so maybe they are the ones causing the problems although they seem to be fine. But then again one household (Sam Cooper & Grace Robinson) has been unaffected by this "plague" so I don't really know what's causing it. I don't feel like killing off 5 sims especially since I don't know if that'll fix the problem.

It looks like Wellington has become a BFBVFS and this might very well be the end :(

edit: Clearly I'm not the sharpest pen in the box... I remembered I made a backup of my wh9ole TS2 folder before I re-installed my game on Saturday. I used the backup, played the girls through college and this time everything turned out fine. I'm back in business!!!

I'm back!

I got my computer back and it's brilliant. Pretty much everything is new: motherboard, processor, video card, 3 GB's of RAM. I've been wanting to upgrade my PC and now I did it, thanks to the old motherboard that got broken.

The best news is that all my stuff is safe so I can continue to play Wellington! I only have 4 hours of work tomorrow and then my summer vacation starts YAY! The weather has been quite hot and we've been boiling at work because there's no air conditioning. But of course the forecast tells that it'll get colder right when our vacation starts! Anyway, I'm going to get a tattoo tomorrow afternoon so I'll probably start up my game on Saturday or Sunday.

So glad to be back :)
