    Sorry for late replies :(

    @SwimmyFishy107‌ You have to have posted 30 times I think and have 50 points or vice versa. And no, once she's had her kids she can't go back to her career at all.

    @aria_kingblood‌ Aww, that's so cute :) I have a cat, bought in a mouse last night, didn't look like there was any blood when I took it outside and it was still breathing but went out today and it was dead :( I think it got cold and died. I'm pretty sure it was only a baby :( Only downfall on having a cat (oh and that I'm mildly allergic LoL)

    @JRBear‌ I'll try and find it... I'm not sure if I still have it bookmarked LoL and it's still full of mistakes so I would recommend that you just try this one... they are very different, what with open world and graphics and traits and skills and just generally everything LoL.

    @cookingpup99 ok thanks for letting me know, was just curious abut knowing if she could ever get her job back or not. :)

    @Cookingpup99‌ haha, my neighbor's cat does that dirty deed for me, leaves the dead rats on my doormat early in the morning (it's like they purposely want to scare you) :o
    Haha, I have mild allergies too, I get sneezy when they haven't bathed for some time or if they shed. It also doesn't help that my airway is tight so I have to use an inhaler...
    But all is well, the company and love of the cats and kittens make up for all the temporary allergies. :)

    This is a neat challenge, very different from the usual. Definitely going to give this a go!

    Chapter 1

    @SwimmyFishy107 Any time :)
    @aria_kingblood‌ LoL, cats are just too cute not to love. I react more to my short-haired cat than to my friend's long-haired cat because she just constantly malts.
    @Aurieva‌ Thanks :) Feel free to post pictures or whatever on here :)

    This sounds AMAZING!!! I am going to try it now, great job!!!

    I was wondering about the getting married on and off lot, what does it mean?
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 440 Member
    @GeorgiaTehSimmer‌ Hey, thanks :) The getting married on and off lot was more a TS3 thing but I carried it through onto TS4 one. It just means getting married on your sims lot (house) or getting married off lot like the park or something.
  • GeorgiaTehSimmerGeorgiaTehSimmer Posts: 213 Member
    @Cookingpup99‌ Thankyou:)

    I'm proud of Makayla's appearance. My CC made the difference it seems.
    I was actually very sad to let Glenn go. Sadly, I had to.
    I bet Nicholas will be an attractive teen.

    I love her hair. I realise that the dad running away bit is an upsetting one... oops. I hate letting go of most of my sims.

    @lilmissswagga325‌ Uh... wha? I'm confused?
  • GeorgiaTehSimmerGeorgiaTehSimmer Posts: 213 Member

  • SavannahSavannah Posts: 174 Member

    Nice challenge idea though
  • GeorgiaTehSimmerGeorgiaTehSimmer Posts: 213 Member
    Yeah you can have them but I think its hard too
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 440 Member
    @GeorgiaTehSimmer‌ Oh my god :) You are soooo lucky... but also extremely unlucky because it crashed. It's probs for the best anyways, it would be really hard to look after three babies!

    @Savannah Thanks :)
  • GeorgiaTehSimmerGeorgiaTehSimmer Posts: 213 Member
    @Cookingpup99 true!! I ended up getting one girl which is better
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 440 Member
    @GeorgiaTehSimmer‌ Yeah that should be A LOT easier
  • shelym11shelym11 Posts: 47 Member
    I got twins, a boy and a girl. But they dont look anything alike. :(
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 440 Member
    @shelym11 Twins seem to be a regular occurrence now, I remember in TS3 that it was extremely rare to have twins.
  • youcrAzy13youcrAzy13 Posts: 213 Member

    Always and forever, Alyssa Edwards
