Round 11 ROS

ROS for round 11. Oh well, at least I don't have to kill anyone.

Dumping! Do the dirty deed and dump your spouse/partner. - I'm definitely not happy about this but it doesn't say they have to stay apart forever!

Sudden change of lifeplans. Sim must quit their current job and choose a new career immediately.
- This is quite annoying since this sim is already quite high in their career.

Viagra overdose! Flirt with the next walk by of the approriate sex for 8 times.
- This will be fun!

You're feeling inspired and donate 10% of your personal net worth to charity. Maxmotives because you feel so good.
- It's not going to be much since this sim is not exactly loaded. I'll have to see what I'll use it for.

last update/next update

Rianna Midlock is 44, Anthony is 40, Emily is 6, Sara is 5 and Jesse is 1.

We have settled into our new home very nicely. We have a huge mortgage and it'll probably take years before we're debt-free but we're happy.

Learning the hard way

Round 10: Autumn 2014

Principal Nyah Marlowe is 28.
Danny Cooper is 18, Liv Harris is 16 and Stephen Marlowe is 13.
Townie students: Veronica Andrews, Calista Morgan, Nico Morris and Jay Winters.

Nyah wants to concentrate on gradework this school year. After some whining and grining from the students they finally settle at their desks and get to work. Nyah has the patience of a saint and she's always fair but she can be one tough cookie if the students start rebelling too much.

New soul

Round 10: Autumn 2014
last update/next update/Greg's next update

Greg Newman is 21 and Charlie and Janie Greene are 20.

The drama is slowly dying in the Greenleaves Hall. Janie spent some time at her parents' house during the summer so that she and Greg could both cool down a bit and maybe become friends again. The break seems to have done good for them since they're chatting like old friends again.

Round 10: Autumn 2014
last update/next update

Tom Patterson is 21 and Dixie Greene is 20.

Tom and Dixie had a bit of a scare in the summer because Dixie thought she might be pregnant but it turned out to be a false positive. While they both want kids eventually, they just feel that the time isn't right for babies. They're both making relieved phone calls to their closest friends to let them know that things are back to normal.

Falling slowly

Round 10: Autumn 2014
last update/next update

Erin Fielding is 19 and Iona is 2.
Greg is 21.)

Narrated by Erin Fielding

I think Tom is trying to act as mediator for me and Greg. He's always saying how much Greg misses me and when they come over he urges Greg to say how pretty I look. I know he means well but he's getting on my nerves. I finally told him that he has to stop doing that.

Chasing pirates

Round 10: Summer 2014
last update/next update

Sam Cooper is 36, Grace is 31 and Madelyn and Ross are 3.

Narrated by Sam Cooper

We were all so shocked when we heard the news of Olivia's death. Grace took it pretty hard especially since she hasn't been in touch with her family very much during the past few years. The saddest thing is that our kids will never really get to know their nana Olivia because they only met her a couple of times and are probably too small to remember her.

Narrated by Paige Robinson

This summer started in the worst way that you could possibly imagine. Olivia passed away so suddenly. Kurt has been taking it really hard. They were married for 35 years and I can't even imagine what he's going through.

Save it for a rainy day

Round 10: Spring 2014
last update/next update

Ryland and Jackie Whitfield are 63 and Dawn and Zach are 10.

Narrated by Ryland Whitfield

There's not a moment of silence in our house. The kids are always making some kind of noise. I guess in a few years it'll be slamming doors and playing bad music too loudly so I'm just happy to hear them play cops and robbers now.

More than that

last update/next update

Brooke Harper is 22, Greg Newman is 21 and Charlie and Janie Greene are 20.
(Danny is 18.)

Janie is pretty shocked to learn that Danny knows all about her affair with Greg. And he's not too happy about it. It's not like they were serious or anything but they did go on several dates before Janie went to college.
