    Drake

    Drake Main House - Adam Drake, Eve Drake, Aiden Drake

    Back to Adam and Eve at the Romance Festival with Diego Lobo. All three drank the Sakura tea, which fulfilled the outing goal. Adam headed for the bathroom, while Eve harvested the plants. Diego and Adam chatted, and Eve had to stop harvesting to use the bathroom. Adam met Geoffrey Landgraab too. Eve finished harvesting and asked the Guru about her current relationship. Adam and Eve were both pretty chilly, so they jumped into their cold weather clothing. The Guru told Eve that they will brighten your darkness and lighten your load, much like a burning donkey. Eve then asked the Guru for some wisdom. The Guru said that some say love will tear us apart. Some say love will keep us together. You must decide for yourself what you believe. Eve then introduced herself to Anaya Jang. Adam introduced himself to Justin Delgato. They were both just waiting for the timer to be finished at this point.

    Eve ordered some ramen from a stall, as she was getting a bit hungry. Eve had a bit of an issue with the chopsticks. Eve learned how to make ramen, and they headed home. When they got there, Adam read a toddler book to Aiden, and Eve practiced on the guitar for a bit. Eve acquired the Guitar skill. Aiden reached Imagination level 2. After reading the book to Aiden, Adam went to Eve and asked her if she wanted to try for another one, as it was time. Aiden played on his Wabbit Tablet. Naturally, Eve accepted, and they headed upstairs. They both fell asleep after trying. Adam woke up to take a shower. After his shower, Adam called Eric Lewis to chat, then went back to working on his mobile app. It was Skill Day! Aiden went over to where Adam was programming and chatted with him. Adam reached Comedy level 3 during the conversation and completed Skill Day. Aiden reached Imagination level 3. Too bad he ignores Skill Day as a toddler. Eve got a partnership offer - any video, or a Fishing video.

    Eve woke up and came downstairs to produce a new track for Dinky Beats. She produced the track, then released it. Then she went to practice speaking in the mirror for a bit. Their royalty report was $1117. Adam's computer broke, so he headed upstairs to take a nap. Eve went outside to tend to her bees and garden. She had a few flowers to plant from the Romance festival. She evolved her parsley plant. Eve reached Gardening level 4, completing a step in the Freelance Botanist aspiration and completing Skill Day! She planted the new flowers she had gotten, and watered them all. Adam woke up from his nap and cleaned up something in the nursery. Adam went and got something to eat afterward, and then repaired the computer. Eve took herself around the neighborhood looking for collectibles. Diego Lobo invited Adam to his house, and Adam declined. While she was getting collectibles, Eve remembered that she had a Fishing video to do, and decided to try out the drone in the rain. Eve apparently got sick at some point, as she had a dazed moodlet.

    Adam reached Handiness level 3. Aiden reached Imagination level 4. Adam received 4 common upgrade parts, threw the trash away and then went back to work on his mobile app. It had started to downpour outside, so Eve wrapped up her Fishing video and headed home. Aiden kept Adam company while Adam worked on his mobile app and Aiden played Draw With Llama. Eve was soaked to the skin when she finally made it home, but she felt better once she changed out of her wet clothing. Adam and Aiden became good friends, and Adam reached Programming level 8. Eve transferred the videos from the drone to the video station, then started editing her Fishing video. Eve reached Media Production level 3. Victor Feng invited Adam out to Guy's Night at the Rattlesnake Bar, so Adam headed off.

    Adam and Victor arrived at the bar and chatted for a bit outside. Adam went inside to use the bathroom. More and more guys showed up as the clock ticked down. Adam watched some TV while waiting for the next mixologist to come on shift. Then Adam ordered an EAPA. Then he sat chatting with Victor and Raj Rasoya. Adam was exhausted though, so left for home as soon as he could. When Adam got home, he headed straight for bed. Eve went back to editing her video, and poor Aiden was so hungry he was hangry. Really bad AI apparently. Eve finished editing and uploaded the video. She got $150 for the video, and Adam and Eve had a great Skill Day. Eve wanted to paint a painting, so she started on a large realism painting. Aiden finished eating, put his plate in the kitchen and went to use the potty. Eve reached Painting level 6. Aiden used the potty then went back on his Wabbit Tablet. Eve sold the realism painting for $162 to a collector. Then she went to practice pickup lines in a mirror.

    The Drakes really need more money, as they only have a bit over 6k in the bank right now, and their house is nowhere near finished. In fact, it's a pretty empty house right now - they don't even have lights! And Eve just found out that she's pregnant! They paid their weekly bill amount of $545 and Eve looked for some gigs for her to do. She accepted one to help a renowned scientist and headed to the computer to chat with the client. It went well, and Eve started the non-fiction book for her client. Eve finished the book, then submitted it for approval. Adam woke up before work and hopped into the shower. Eve's book was approved, and she received $1866 for it. Eve went to make some pancakes for breakfast. When Adam finished with his shower, he sent a happy text to Eric. Bjorn sent a congratulations text to Adam on Adam's promotion, and Adam headed downstairs to talk with Eve before leaving for work. Eve took her chance to inform Adam of the new baby on the way, and Adam took off for work. Eve is apparently sick with something, but there is nothing to tell me with what - why can't it just be listed on the Simology panel with a timer? Aiden was sad that his dad had left for work.

    Eve ate and became feverish. Their royalty report was $1168. Eve bought some medicine and took it. Then she cleaned up her plate and the kitchen. Aiden reached Imagination level 5. Aiden stopped playing on his Wabbit Tablet for a moment so that Eve could comfort him, as he was still sad that his dad had left for work. Then she told Aiden a funny story to cheer him up. They chatted for a few moments, then Eve had to hit the bathroom, so Aiden went back to his Wabbit Tablet. Eve washed her hands and headed outside to tend her bees and garden. Her bees were enraged for some reason, so she bonded with them to calm them back down. Eve evolved her snapdragon plant to Nice quality. After spraying her strawberry and sage plants for bugs, Eve headed upstairs to take a nap. They definitely need a better bed, but they only have about 8k in the bank right now.

    Aiden took a quick potty break, then went back to his Wabbit Tablet. The Humor and Hijinks festival was on tonight, and I realized that we had forgotten to go to the Accolades. Doh! Adam brought home $640 and a vacation day. Adam was feeling sad due to a work chance card, so he went inside and wrote in his journal. Adam reached Writing level 2. Eve woke up from her nap and headed downstairs to work on a workout guide. Adam finished writing in his journal and went into the study to continue working on his mobile app. Penny invited Eve to the Humor and Hijinks festival, but Eve had to decline because the pregnancy was taking its toll. Aiden reached Thinking level 3. Then Aiden headed over to chat with Eve about his favorite animal. Penny invited Eve to her house, which Eve also declined. Aiden and Eve chatted for a bit, then Aiden headed upstairs to bed. Eve finished her book, sold it to a publisher and then read a book before bed. Adam finished his mobile app, called it Mobile App #1, got $1656 for it, and became a Notable Newcomer. He went with Noticeable for his fame perk, then headed off to the bathroom. He admired himself in the mirror, then went to produce a track. He then released his track so the public could hear it.

    Adam also really wanted to record a video, so he started recording a gadget review video. Eve finished her book and put it away. Then Eve went to produce a track for Dinky Beats. She released her track, then cleaned the bathroom. Adam finished recording his video and sat down to edit it. Eve grabbed herself some food after cleaning the bathroom. Eve ate, cleaned up her bowl and then headed to bed. Adam finished editing his video and uploaded it. Then Adam grabbed himself some food. Adam signed with New Tastemakers and received $826. Adam finished eating and headed off to bed. Aiden woke up hangry again, so went down to the kitchen to get some food.

    I think this is where I'm going to stop, I'm falling asleep over here! Happy Simming!

    Drake

    Drake Main House - Adam Drake, Eve Drake, Aiden Drake

    Aiden sat down on the couch in the living room and ate, quickly getting rid of his hangry moodlet. Eve woke up and went to use the bathroom. She's still in the 2nd trimester. Eve then went to chat with Aiden, as his attention was getting low. Adam had to get up for work. He sent a happy text to Diego, then took off for work. Aiden and Eve had a good conversation, then Eve taught Aiden how to say sorry. Their royalty report was $1597. Soon it was time to give Aiden a bath. Adam gained $1600 by allowing some investors to invest in him. The thought made Adam quite tense, but it was too late now! Mail was delivered while Eve was giving Aiden a bath. After the bath, Aiden went to go play on his Wabbit Tablet while Eve mopped up and got the mail. Eve got some sweet fan mail and went to clean up the house. With a little over 14k in household funds right now, they can finally get a good bed! They decided on the Cobra Cabana, as it left them more in household funds than the Princess Cordelia bed. They do have Aiden's birthday coming up in a few days, and will have to outfit the second master bedroom for him. He is the heir, after all!

    Candy Behr invited Eve out to lunch at Chez Llama, so Eve accepted. When they arrived, Eve told Candy the (very obvious) big news and invited Candy to feel the baby. They chatted for a bit, then Eve requested a table. Candy and Eve got a booth for lunch. The two of them chatted, and Eve ordered for the table. Eve is hungry and pregnant, watch out! They both had a Granite Falls Grappo Blanco and a Space Taco with Pearled Egg Core as they were the Chef's Specials. The Roswells were on a date right next to them. Candy and Eve chatted away until their food came. Eve somehow acquired the Gourmet Cooking skill. Eve remembered to take a picture of her Space Taco before she dug in. They both seemed to enjoy their Space Tacos. Eve didn't have enough Cooking skill to learn how to make Space Tacos, but it's okay. No chef stations in homes! They ended the meal and Eve paid the bill of $58, then she headed home. When she got there, she chatted with Ulrike Faust on the phone, and Aiden went back to playing Simshape on his Wabbit Tablet. Adam was both home and still at work, but he managed to start a game of chess with himself.

    Now I need to get some more rest. Hopefully, Adam's at work status clears quickly when I get back. Sometimes this happens lol. Happy Simming!

    Drake

    Drake Main Household - Adam Drake, Eve Drake, Aiden Drake

    Adam started another mobile app while I waited for his still at work status to clear. Resetting him didn't help. Eve hit the bathroom once her phone call ended. Eve broke the bathroom sink after washing her hands, so she went to tell Adam about it. They chatted for a bit. At this point, it had been more than a sim hour and Adam was still "at" work. So I headed out to manage worlds, as messing around there is usually a good way to reset an entire household for me. Normally, it's extremely annoying but may come in useful right now. Took the time to place all the buildings I wanted in the neighborhoods, and Adam was still at work when I went back to the Drakes. This time I hit the leave early button, and it worked! Adam brought home $1514 and a promotion to Development Captain. Everything went back to normal. Whew.

    Aiden went back to playing Simshape, and Eve walked over there to tell Aiden a story. Adam walked into the music room to produce a new track. New Tastemakers texted him just before he got to the music station. He released the track as soon as he burned it. Then Adam went back to working on his second mobile app. Eve continued chatting with Aiden, then cleaned up some plates that were in the dining room and kitchen. Then Eve went to produce a new track for Dinky Beats. She then released the track. Then Eve went over to chat with Adam. Aiden went to go grab himself some dinner, and Eve went outside to tend to her bees and garden. Adam took a bathroom break from programming and repaired the bathroom sink as well. Adam acquired 2 common upgrade parts and a plumbing upgrade part. He cleaned up the trash and got some food. Eve cleaned up the bathroom and changed into dry clothes. Aiden went back to his Wabbit Tablet for a while. Eve then headed up to bed. Adam finished eating and went back to his mobile app so he could finish his daily task.

    Aiden stopped playing Simshape, headed to the potty to do his business, then headed to bed. Adam finished off his daily task and headed to bed as well, to get some sleep before work. Aiden had a bit of a potty accident. Eve woke up at 7 am and grabbed some food out of the kitchen. Adam woke up and admired himself in the mirror before work. He then called Eric Lewis and chatted for a bit, then it was off to work for Adam. Eve cleaned up around the house. Eve got a partnership offer - any video, or a Fishing video. Their royalty report was $1745. New Tastemakers are up Adam's 🤔🤔🤔🤔 again. Eve went outside to tend to her bees and garden. Their money tree still hasn't grown. And it was in the ground when I started playing them again! Eve washed her hands, then went out collecting. She also had her Fishing video to do. For whatever reason, her Fishing video wasn't going to happen - she'd set up the drone, start fishing and the action would immediately drop out. Finally, I got it to work. Aiden woke up and immediately started playing Simshape on his Wabbit Tablet. Eve caught a kitchen upgrade part. The drone's battery got low, so Eve ended the recording. Then she chatted with Paloma Flores for a bit.

    Adam came home from work, bringing $680 home. Then he went to chat with Aiden, who was sad that no one was talking to him. Diego Lobo asked if he could come over and hang out, so of course, Adam said yes. Eve headed home. She's in the 3rd trimester, and I really don't want her having that baby so far from home! Eve got her inventory cleaned out while she walked home. Diego entered into the conversation between Aiden and Adam, and Eve transferred videos from her drone to the video station. Adam still needed to get his daily task finished for work, so he headed downstairs to work on his mobile app. After transferring the videos, Eve took a bathroom break and made dinner. Poor girl is always hungry and got to pee! Eve made fried fish for dinner. Aiden and Diego got along well. Eve reached Cooking level 4 and ate her dinner. Candy invited Eve over to her house, but Eve had to decline - the baby comes soonish! Adam got the notification that his spotlight is fading, so took a break from programming to post to Simstagram and work on his next track. Eve finished eating, put her plate in the dishwasher and went to edit her Fishing video. Adam gained 12 followers and now has 12 followers total. They don't tend to do much with social media. Aiden was still having a good old time with Diego, just chatting up a storm. Adam produced and released a track.

    Mouse locked up on me, so will have to redo some of this, I'm sure.

    Drake

    Drake Main House - Adam Drake, Eve Drake, Aiden Drake

    So I lost about 5 hours or so of play time, not horrible. So Eve headed home, Adam chatted with Aiden. Diego Lobo was there, and Eve's inventory had to be cleared out again. Can we please get somewhere to store these CDs from the music station? Adam headed downstairs to create a social media profile and work on his mobile app for his daily task. Eve transferred videos from her drone to the video station. Then she headed for the bathroom. Adam took a brief programming break to produce the track New Tastemakers wanted earlier. Candy once again invited Eve over to her house, but Eve is housebound at this point. Eve edited her Fishing video and Adam released his track. Adam then went back to programming his mobile app. Aiden reached Thinking level 4.

    Eve finished editing her video and uploaded it, netting them another $150. Diego decided it was time to leave. Eve went to the music station to produce a track for Dinky Beats. Adam finished his daily task and headed for the bathroom to take a shower. Eve released her track, then headed into the kitchen to make a late dinner of fried fish. Adam got out of the shower and went to play an Incredible Sports Novice Tournament, as he needed another skill point in Video Gaming to get promoted. Eve reached Cooking level 4 and ate her meal. Aiden came downstairs to chat with Eve as he played Simshape and she ate. Eve cleaned up her plate. Aiden took a break from Simshape to use the potty. Needing more money, Eve checked her gigs, but there wasn't anything she was interested in. Being in a playful mood, Eve decided to start a playful painting. Adam reached Video Gaming level 5. They only have about 9k in the bank. Aiden finished going potty, then ran into the kitchen for some food.

    Adam didn't win a prize for his tournament, so he was sad. He got some dinner after finishing. Eve sold her playful painting to a collector for $282. Then she headed up to bed to get some rest before the new family member(s) came. Adam finished eating, cleaned up his plate, then had to hit the bathroom. Aiden wasn't tired enough to go to bed, so he played some more Simshape. Adam was sent to bed to get some sleep before work or baby, whichever happened first. Eve went into labor just after 4 am. She and Adam headed to the hospital, leaving poor Aiden in daycare. Aaron Drake was born at 6:01 am, on TV Season Premiere Day! Adam, Eve and Aaron soon got sent home. When they arrived home, they had to do a bit of shopping - a TV was needed, and Eve wanted a washer. Hampers were required too. Adam and Eve watched the Game of Llama's premiere, and Aiden went back on his Wabbit Tablet. Aiden joined his parents in the living room.

    Adam and Eve both completed TV Premiere Day. Adam went back to working on his mobile app for a little while before work. Eve was playful again from chatting with Aiden, so she went to do another playful painting. New Tastemakers are literally up Adam's 🤔🤔🤔🤔, so he went to produce another track before work. Adam released his track, then went back to his computer to update social media. They only have about 5k left, and Aiden's birthday is on Sunday. Adam let everyone know about his new track, gaining him 25 followers - for a total of 25 followers. He then promoted some older videos of his. Then I get a pop up about Aaron being very hungry - the baby is freaking sleeping! *sigh* Eve heads upstairs to feed him. Adam heads off to work. Eve reached Parenting level 4. Eve sent a happy text to Penny and goes back downstairs to finish her painting. Their royalty report was $2190. Love Day is tomorrow! Eve sold her playful painting for $279. Eve went to go clean up the kitchen and Aiden went down for a nap. Aiden and Aaron are sharing the nursery, so this should be amusing. Aaron chose that moment to start crying, so Eve headed upstairs to take care of him.

    Now it's time for me to try to get some sleep. Happy Simming, and don't forget to vote on who I should play next!

    Last week of school for my daughter, thank goodness!

    Drake

    Drake Main House - Adam Drake, Eve Drake, Aiden Drake, Aaron Drake

    Eve finished up taking care of Aaron, then went to practice pickup lines in the mirror. Candy Behr invited Eve out to lunch at Chez Llama, so Eve went. They arrived and chatted for a bit. Then Eve requested a table. This time they got a table in the "pit." They chatted and ordered. Both got a Simsmapolitan and the Honeycomb Garden Vegetable Cups as they were both Chef's Specials. Adam came home from work, bringing a vacation day and $680 with him. Candy and Eve became good friends. Their food arrived, and both seemed pleased. Eve remembered to take a picture, then Candy got up for some reason while Eve started eating. Soon Candy was back, and the two ate and chatted. They finished eating, paid the bill of $86 and left as it was getting late.

    Eve arrived home, sent Candy a happy text as a thank you for the outing, and headed inside to use the bathroom. Aiden played Simshape on his Wabbit Tablet. Adam went to the music station to produce a new track. He couldn't release it just yet, so he went back to working on his mobile app and getting his daily task out of the way. Eve started another emotional painting, this time a confident one. I need to update Eve's formal, as she is in a pants suit, and it's just not fitting. Aiden got to meet his baby brother, and Aiden was happy with the new sibling! Then Aiden trudged downstairs to get some dinner. Eve finished her painting and completed a tier of Painter Extraordinaire. She then sold it to a collector for $313. Eve went outside and tended to her bees and garden. Adam finished his daily task and went to the kitchen for some dinner. Eve's mushrooms evolved to Excellent, and Eve completed a tier of Freelance Botanist. Eve's daisies also evolved to Nice. Aiden went back on his Wabbit Tablet and talked to Adam about superheroes. Eve came inside to clean up some plates, then she joined into Adam and Aiden's conversation. Soon it was time for everyone to head to bed. Adam and Eve both had a great TV Premiere Day. Eve made sure Aaron was taken care of before she went to bed.

    Seriously, New Tastemakers, it's 3:30 in the morning! Caleb Valtore showed up just before the sun rose. He got Eve, even though Adam was awake before Caleb reached her. Adam was not pleased when he walked by to see his wife being drained of plasma! Of course, there wasn't anything he could do. What a way to start Love Day! Adam went downstairs and released the track he had produced the night before. After releasing it, he let the world know it was available by adding to his Simstagram story and posting on social media. Adam gained 12 followers and 25 followers respectively, for a total of 62 followers. Then Adam went to record a gadget review video. Eve finally dezombiefied herself and hopped into the shower to wash up. Aiden woke up and went to talk to himself in the mirror. After her shower, Eve headed downstairs to produce a new track for Dinky Beats. Then Eve released it and headed outside to tend to her bees and garden. Adam reached Charisma level 4. Aiden went back to playing Simshape. Adam finished recording his video and bought Eve a gift. Eve's sage bush evolved to Nice. Adam then sent a happy text to Diego. Adam tried to give Eve a Love Day gift but had to go to work instead. Their royalty report was $2354. Aiden had come outside in the rain to chat with his mother while she gardened, but he got sent back inside to go potty. Finally, their money tree grew!

    Aiden reached Movement level 5, and Eve reached Gardening level 5. Aiden got back on his Wabbit Tablet for a moment, and reached Thinking level 5! Now the little tyke can pretty much do what he wants. Eve made the first harvest of her money tree - $8k was much needed. She then fertilized the tree with one of her bluebells. Eve then went around the neighborhood looking for collectibles. Aiden went to go play with the dollhouse. Eve finished just in time for a thunderstorm to start, so she headed home. Aiden was scared and sad. Eve nearly got hit with a bolt of lightning just as she reached the house. Eve changed into dry clothes, then went to comfort Aiden and take care of Aaron. Eve sent a happy text to Penny, and she chatted with Aiden for a bit. Then Eve taught Aiden how to say sorry.

    And that's where I'm going to end it for now. Don't forget to vote in the poll, and Happy Simming!

    Drake

    Drake Main House - Adam Drake, Eve Drake, Aiden Drake, Aaron Drake

    Might as well spend some time on Aiden's character values, since he's only two days away from becoming a child. And it distracts him from the thunderstorm raging outside. Lucas Munch invited Eve out to a nightclub. Umm, you're still a child, no. Eve got hungry, so headed downstairs to the kitchen for some food. Adam came home from work, decided to become a Start-Up Entrepreneur, and was promoted to The Next Big Thing. He brought home $680 and a bonus of $933. He got home just in time, as the Spice Festival is in town! Eve brought her lunch to the nursery and tried to take Aiden's mind off the thunderstorm. Adam just bolted inside. Then he got an invite for a promotion celebration at Villa Bovine from Victor Feng. He decided to accept and bring Eve with him.

    They had only just arrived when Salim invited Adam out to a lounge to celebrate his promotion! Adam asked Eve on a date to knock out two birds with one stone. Adam socialized with Eve a bit, then requested a table for all three of them. Eve got a strange text from Joaquin about drinking people's blood without permission. Eve lost a chunk of reputation points, even though she is human! And yes, I double checked. Think Joaquin meant to text Caleb instead. Victor materialized with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich from somewhere. Everyone got a sweet and sour and a steak. Adam complimented Eve, and naturally, New Tastemakers had to ruin the moment because they want MORE tracks. Ugh.

    Anywho, back to the dinner/date/promotion thing - Adam and Eve included Victor in their conversations as they waited for their food. Everyone seemed pleased when the food landed in front of them too. Adam did somehow manage to get a poor steak. Does that even exist? Adam did get the chance to complain about it though! Adam and Eve got to do plenty of romantic actions too! The date timer was definitely ticking down, but they already had it in Gold status. Moira joined their conversation as well. Adam completed one of the Love Day traditions. For some reason, all four of them busted out into song. They talked some more, and other people started to join in as well. Adam and Eve both completed two traditions for Love Day, then Eve needed to take a bathroom break. Eve also had a bit of a headache. Eve quickly bought herself some medicine and took it as soon as possible. Then it was time to exchange flowers and Love Day gifts. Love Day was a success! It was time to pay the bill of $75 and leave.

    When Adam and Eve got home, Adam went straight to bed, Eve went to check on and tend to Aaron, and Aiden had to use the potty. Aiden reached Potty level 3, then went to bed when he was finished. Eve headed off to bed as well. Adam woke up first to use the bathroom. It's Aaron's birthday today, so looks like Adam gets the honors. Adam aged Aaron up, and he grew into a cute little toddler! Though honestly, I have yet to see a non-cute toddler in this game lol. I fixed some of the items I had been meaning to fix in CAS. Adam called Diego to tell him the good news about Aaron growing up, Eve went to produce a new track, Aiden went back to sleep and Aaron played on the Wabbit Tablet. Aaron acquired the Movement skill. Always the first requirement! Here are some pictures.

    Aaron Drake

    Aren't they an adorable little family? Anywho, Eve released her track for Dinky Beats, then she went jogging as she was carrying a bit of extra weight from two kids. Eve acquired the Fitness skill. Diego and Adam become good friends. Not really sure why Eve jogged through the house, but okay. After chatting with Diego, Adam headed downstairs to produce a track for New Tastemakers. Adam produced a track and released it. Their royalty report was $2175. Eve got a partnership offer - any video or an Angry Vlog. Since the odds of getting an angry vlog out of her is slim, we're going to go with any video. Besides, the station is getting full! Adam headed to his computer to work on his programming task by working on his second mobile app. Eve came home filthy, so she jumped into the shower. Eve cleaned up around the house before going outside to tend to her bees and garden. Adam finished his mobile app, Mobile App #2 and received $1031. He also became a Rising Star, deciding on Celebuserum and Networking. Adam also received a start-up bonus of $560. Adam then went to start a confident painting.

    Then my mouse locked up on me, so a restart was required. Time to go digging to check drivers and all that fun stuff - it's been happening A LOT lately! Don't forget to vote in the poll, and Happy Simming!

    Drake

    Drake Main House - Adam Drake, Eve Drake, Aiden Drake, Aaron Drake

    Adam acquired the Painting skill. Adam reached Painting level 2. Eve finished tending to her bees and her garden and headed out collecting. Adam sold his confidence painting to a collector for $95. Then he headed upstairs to chat with Aaron for a bit. Aaron reached Movement level 2, which means he can now climb stairs! Eve's inventory got a good cleaning out. Aaron acquired the Communication skill. Aiden finally woke up. Adam got inspired and wanted to play the guitar, so he went into the music room to practice. Aiden and Aaron chatted for a bit before Aaron went to sleep. Aiden went to talk to himself in the mirror. Adam acquired the Guitar skill. Eve got home and sent some pyrite to the Geo Council. She opened a seed packet that she had gotten somewhere and planted what she didn't already have. Victor Feng decided to fame stalk Adam. Eve went in out of the rain and edited one of her many videos. Adam reached Guitar level 2 and grabbed something to eat.

    Now I need to get off my rear and get ready to bring Midget down for the bus and go grocery shopping. Yay me. Don't forget to vote in the poll, and Happy Simming!

    Drake

    Drake Main House - Adam Drake, Eve Drake, Aiden Drake, Aaron Drake

    Aiden played with his dollhouse. Victor Feng got tired of the computer and came upstairs to play with the block table in the nursery. Never would have expected that! Adam finished his meal, then headed for the shower. Eve reached Media Production level 4. Eve finished editing her video, uploaded it, and got $100 for it. Then Eve went to make some garden salad. They decided to buy a better camera and a ring light for the video station, and Adam went downstairs to work on his handiness. He made a couple of dragon sculptures for his boys. Victor decided to head out. The study got some upgrades and some new items. And we have the first room with lights! I took pictures of the house just before this, and I'll post them soon after I'm done playing. They still have about 20k in the bank, so should be good to go for Aiden's party and bedroom tomorrow.

    Eve finished making the salad and grabbed herself a bowl to eat. Adam came down with something, as he felt feverish. Aaron acquired the Thinking skill. New Tastemakers climbed up Adam's 🤔🤔🤔🤔 again. Aiden came downstairs to chat with Eve. Aaron thought it would be funny to make a mess (ironically, he's the Angelic one!), so Eve had to stop that. Aaron did acquire the Imagination skill from doing so though. Of course, Eve ended up NOT disciplining Aaron, since it timed out - and she couldn't do so anymore. Adam couldn't discipline the kid either! Eve sent a happy text to Penny while waiting for the destruction to be over. Aaron toddled off to play dolls, and Eve cleaned up the mess. Eve started going through the laundry and found $21 in her first basket. She then threw the clothes in the washer. Adam bought some medicine and drank it.

    Adam was energized after that, so did some pushups. Adam acquired the Fitness skill. Then he went upstairs to produce a track for New Tastemakers. Eve went back upstairs to get more laundry. Aaron reached Imagination level 2. Adam released his track and went to play chess. Aiden ran down to talk to Adam, and Aaron picked up his Wabbit Tablet. Eve found nothing in her second hamper. But she found $19 and a seed packet in her third. They may be needing a butler soon! Aaron got sleepy, so he hit the bed first. Eve found $11 in the fourth hamper. They have a lot of hampers, and will eventually have a lot more. Aiden wanted to tell Eve a knock-knock joke, so he followed her down to the basement. Sounds like the beginning of a horror story! Adam reached Logic level 2. Eve opened her seed packet while waiting for Aiden, but got nothing new out of it, just some basil. Aiden told Eve his joke, then headed back upstairs to the kitchen for some pancakes. Eve headed to the bathroom, then, since she was feeling playful, started a playful painting. She finished it and sold it to a collector for $280, then she decided to show Adam her muscles. Aiden decided to play in the cabinets. Eve complimented Adam, and they chatted a bit until Eve got up to clean the house more.

    Adam reached Logic level 3 and completed a tier of Nerd Brain. Eve cleaned the nursery potty and collected dirty dishes. Aiden played with his dollhouse. Eve moved the laundry from the washer to the dryer. Aiden went over to chat with Adam. Eve headed outside in the rain to tend to her bees and garden. Aiden ran off to play dolls again, and Adam headed to the bathroom. Aaron woke up and headed downstairs for some breakfast. Adam practiced his speech in front of the bathroom mirror. Poor Aaron was sad he was so hungry. Eve finished up her gardening and headed around the neighborhood collecting stuff. Their royalty report was $2492, and the Flea Market is in town. Just as Eve was nearing the end of her collecting, it started to downpour as a thunderstorm moved in. Diego invited Adam to the Flea Market, but they couldn't go due to the time Aiden's birthday party was - it was fast approaching! May still send Eve real quick to see what the vendors have for collectibles. Eve finished her collecting and headed home soaking wet. Adam told the world about his latest track by updating social media and his Simstagram story. And New Tastemakers just sent him another message, holy hell Batman! Adam gained 12 followers from Simstagram and 24 from social media, giving him 98 followers total now. Eve got home and changed into dry clothes, and Adam went to comfort Aaron about the storm.

    There was just about enough time to send Eve off for a quick Flea Market peek, so off she went! Unfortunately, there wasn't anything there, so she grabbed some posters and took off. Eve got home and ran inside as it was still storming and started making a honey cake for Aiden's birthday. Adam went around to comfort the boys about the storm. Adam kept the boys occupied while Eve got the cake ready. Guests soon started to arrive. Eve reached Cooking level 5. She put the candles on the cake and Adam brought Aiden downstairs. J Huntington III smashed the boys' dollhouse. Great guest you are, J! Aiden blew out the candles. He grew up into a Cheerful Social Butterfly. He has a little bit of fame from his parents and got the Top-Notch Toddler trait. Naturally, I pulled him into CAS immediately. A few tiny changes, mostly due to color choices. Who pairs red and purple? Blech.

    Here is child Aiden:
    Aiden-Drake-Child.png

    Isn't he adorable? They all had cake and went for the party goals. Adam chatted and joked with Marcus Flex, Eve played the violin, and Aiden hit the bathroom after his cake. I had misjudged how long a party lasts, and we were getting very close to Accolades time. Aiden hit the shower. Then it snowed, so everyone had to react to their first snow. I ended the party early so that Adam and Eve could get to the Accolades. Parties no later than noon on Sundays lol. We got Silver, good enough! Then Adam and Eve headed to the Accolades late. They arrived and went inside since the Accolades were already in progress. Eve Drake won an Accolade for best book! Penny interrupted Eve's thank you speech to ask if Eve wanted to go over to her house. We're busy, lady! Eve randomly started chatting with Brytani Cho. Vlad appeared out of nowhere, and he and Geoffrey were whispering about Adam for some reason. The Accolades were over, so Adam and Eve went home.

    When they arrived home, the thunderstorm hadn't abated yet. Eve went straight to bed after displaying her Starlight Accolade on a shelf in the study. Then it was time to do Aiden's room. Now they only have about 10k in the bank. Aaron is angry because his sugar rush from the honey cake has faded. Adam also went straight to bed. Aiden was tense from the storm, so wrote in his journal about it. Annnd someone from the party fixed the broken dollhouse, cool. Aiden reached Creativity level 3. Aaron went on his Wabbit Tablet. Aiden finished writing in his journal, took a shower and then did his homework. Eve has one crazy mess to clean up in the morning - might just hire them a maid! Aiden finished his homework and headed to bed for some sleep before school. Aaron also went to bed, since he no longer has to share a bed!

    And that's where I'm ending the Drakes for now. Going to head over and check the poll to see who I play next!

    McCaig

    McCaig Household - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    I hadn't played these guys since 27 Jan! First thing I did was add some restaurants and other buildings to the save. That took a while, and I had nearly no playtime left! Adam was at work as a Code Monkey (Tech Guru), Eve was a Stay At Home Mom and signed with Dinky Beats. Aeric is just a cute little toddler! Eve is a Rising Star with a Good reputation. Apparently, I stopped playing right after Aeric's birthday. They have no money, just $242 in the bank. Eve's inventory got a bit of a cleaning out too. Eve has won an accolade apparently, and they have a money tree, but it hasn't grown yet.

    Eve sent Katrina Flex a happy text, and Aeric went upstairs to watch toddler videos on his Wabbit Tablet. Eve then went downstairs to produce a track for Dinky Beats. Aeric acquired the Communication skill. Eve released her track, then updated social media and added to her Simstagram story. Eve gained 24 and 12 followers respectively, for a total of 773 followers. Eve decided to become a Freelance Digital Artist so that maybe she could help out more money-wise. She looked at gigs and chose one to do a logo for a company. I fronted them $1k so she could get a sketchpad thingy. Eve sat down on her computer and chatted with her client. Eve heard one of her songs on the radio, which got her all excited. Adam lost some performance due to a bad work chance card. Eve finished up with the client, then started on the logo. She then went upstairs, sketchpad in hand and talked to Aeric. Then Dina invited Eve out for dinner at Chez Llama, and Eve accepted.

    When Dina and Eve arrived, they chatted for a bit. Thank goodness it was cloudy! And another one that I'm not a fan of their formal outfit. Eve requested a table, and they were seated at one of the booths. Adam came home from work with $423 and a vacation day. Eve and Dina chatted and then it was time to order. They both got Granite Falls Grappo Blanco and the Free Range Sixam Pit Beast. Eve drank from a plasma pack after ordering. Katrina Flex congratulated Eve on her new job...like it was any different from her old job! And the waiter dropped their food. *sigh* Now half the restaurant is fighting over the mess. Finally, they get their food and Eve looks excited. Dina is fighting the crowds on who gets to clean up the mess. Seriously, just someone get it cleaned up! Eve took a photo of her food, acquired the Gourmet Cooking skill, and dug in. Dina also looked excited when she saw her food. Eve didn't seem to like her food though, so I blame Don Lothario. He's the chef! Dina and Eve became Good Friends. Eve couldn't learn the recipe has her Cooking skill wasn't high enough. They finished their meal, paid the bill and took off, disappointed in the mess.

    When Eve got home, Aeric headed to bed. Adam went to work on a mobile app he had waiting for him so that he could get his daily task out of the way. Eve drank another plasma pack...they don't seem to do a lot, do they? And no sooner does she finish that, then she gets abducted. No one was even aware she was gone - Adam just turned the stereo on, and on the Romantic Music channel to boot! Eve came back very focused. She went inside and did a Dark Meditation session. As it ended, she heard one of her songs on the radio. Adam reached Programming level 8. Eve resumed her logo design. When it was finished, Eve sent it to the client for approval. She got $1524 for the logo. Eve then headed outside to tend to her bees and garden before the sun came up. She evolved her strawberry plant to Nice. It was cloudy, so Eve took a spin around the neighborhood looking for collectibles. Eve had to take a plasma break to drink out of a plasma fruit. Eve finished up and headed back into the house. Eve also ordered a couple more plasma packs - keeping these guys in plasma is a full-time job!

    Before I head to bed, here is the current McCaig family!

    McCaig

    McCaig Main House - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    Eve studied trends on the video station. She reached Media Production level 3. A flower arranging table was purchased for Eve, and to hold the harvested flowers. Eve transferred videos from her drone. Aeric decided to strip down to his skivvies and run around. Adam finished his mobile app, named it Mobile App #1 and received $888 for it. He also became a Notable Newcomer. Eve went up to discipline Aeric. Their royalty report was $1470 and GeekCon was in town. Adam chose Noticeable as his perk, then he headed off to work. Eve reached Parenting level 3 and was invited out to GeekCon by Dina. Eve accepted, hoping it was a cloudy day there too!

    Eve and Dina arrived, and it was a cloudy day there. The outing goal was to work on the rocket ship. The two chatted for a bit, then went to work on the rocket. Eve acquired the Rocket Science skill. Naturally, Eve got thirsty, so drank/ate a plasma fruit. Eve then decided to give Hackathon her best shot. Eve acquired the Programming skill. Eve reached Programming level 2. Eve finished with a 16% and headed over to the motion gaming rigs. Eve failed the Ultimate Gaming Test with a 30. Then she ate another plasma fruit. Then it was off to the observatory! Eve did not place in the Hackathon. Eve acquired the Logic skill. She got a sky print and reached Logic level 2. The outing ended and she headed home.

    Eve returned home and Aeric was still sad from his daddy going to work, so Eve went up to comfort him - after he put some clothes back on. Apparently, you can't comfort a toddler in a diaper? Or do a bunch of other things, like play. Weird, but whatever. I changed out the bassinet, as they had gotten the "normal" one instead of the vampire one. Could really use more bassinet options! Aeric asked Eve to wrestle and she accepted. Lol, that does seem like fun. Adam got thirsty while at work. After playing, it was time for Eve to have another plasma fruit. Aeric watched her drink the plasma from the fruit, he's going to have to learn someday! Eve was still uncomfortable though, as Aeric was getting a bit big for her to play with. Aeric acquired the Thinking skill. Then he sat down to watch toddler videos on his Wabbit Tablet. Eve produced a track for Dinky Beats, which she promptly released.

    Eve then added to her Simstagram story and posted on social media. She gained 12 and 18 new followers, for a total of 803. Eve then went over to the video station to promote some of her old videos. Surely her new followers hadn't seen them yet! Adam came home with a promotion to Ace Engineer and $1056. Then he drank a plasma pack. Eve wanted to record another video, and maybe clear out some of the ones she already has on the video station, so she checked the current trends. Beauty reviews and Inspired vlogs were trending. Adam started another mobile app to get his daily task out of the way. Eve upgraded the camera and added a ring light to the video station, then started recording a beauty product review video. Eve reached Charisma level 4. Not entirely sure how vamps can make videos of themselves, but I'm sure there is an explanation somewhere. Caleb Valtore asked Adam if he could come over, and naturally, Adam told Caleb he could. Got to be friendly with the local vamps, they're all one has for the duration.

    Eve finished recording her video, called Caleb over and drank a plasma pack. I always forget how fast Caleb can move! Aeric reached Communication level 2. After drinking her plasma pack, Eve asked Caleb to spar. Naturally, Adam watched. Eve lost. Then Eve requested vampiric training from Caleb. Adam went into dark meditation while Eve and Caleb did their thing. He emerged energized, so headed out for a nighttime jog. Adam acquired the Fitness skill. Eve and Caleb finished their training and chatted while waiting for Adam to return. Eve sent a happy text to Lilith and Caleb played Blicblock on Adam's computer. Then Eve started editing her beauty product review video. Adam returned home from his jog and requested vampiric training from Caleb. Caleb never got off the computer, so Adam drank a plasma pack. Caleb then took off without training Adam. Oh well. Adam did some pushups and went back to his mobile app. Eve finished editing her video and uploaded it. Then she felt cooped up, so went over to the fishing hole and fished. They need more plasma packs, and they can't keep buying them! Adam finished his daily task and went to take a shower.

    This seems like a good place to stop for now, as I have to leave soon. Happy Simming!

    Drake

    Drake Main House - As promised, their house! Wanted to get this out there before I started playing the McCaigs again. Almost forgot! Keep in mind that I can't build, and essentially use the same template home over and over again. I want to play, not build! At least most of the time. So here is my boxy classic! It's very empty, as most of them are.

    McCaig

    McCaig Main House - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    I need to remember that vampirism doesn't take effect until the teen years lol. The little vamp symbol on Aeric's needs keeps throwing me off. Had to turn my laptop back on too, after a random, second long power outage. I had saved and exited just before lol. But by the time I got everything situated and the game back up and running, I had run out of play time. And I'm too tired to extend it. I will say that I am loving bat form though! And I'll show you pictures of the house so that you can see how bloody empty it is. They only have about 4k in the bank right now, which is at least better than they had when I first picked them back up!

    The House - Same template house as everyone else lol

    McCaig

    McCaig Main House - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    Eve headed to the kitchen to make a fruit salad for Aeric. She acquired the Cooking skill. Adam chatted online for a bit. Aeric came downstairs to talk to his mom, and he needed a diaper change. They chatted, then Eve changed Aeric's diaper. She drank a plasma pack while Aeric grabbed some fruit salad. After chatting, Adam repaired the stereo. Eve hopped into the shower. Adam received 1 common upgrade part and 1 plumbing upgrade part from repairing the stereo, then he took care of the trash. Little Aeric needed a bath, so they bought a bathtub. Now they only have just over 1k in the bank. Adam went over to tell Aeric a story. Eve went to the easel to sell a painting she had made for $191. Then she started a large pop art painting. Adam reached Parenting level 1 and gave Aeric a bath.

    Eve finished her painting and sold it for $287. Then she went outside to collect the honey from her bees. Adam ordered himself a couple of plasma packs and drank one. It was too sunny outside for Eve, so after collecting the honey she flew back inside. Her vampiric energy was low, so she entered into Dark Meditation. Adam mopped up the puddle from Aeric's splashing in the bath, then went over to the easel and started a playful painting. Adam acquired the Painting skill. Eve headed over to the video station to study trends as she wanted to make yet another video. Aeric listened to the New Age radio station and then headed off to bed. Eve decided to do another beauty product review. Adam's spotlight is apparently fading, and Aeric reached Movement level 3. Adam sold his painting for $78. He also added to his Simstagram story, which gained him 12 followers, for a total of 12 followers. He created a social media profile just before heading off to work. Eve got a partnership offer - any video, or a Fishing video. Eve deleted a video from the video station, ordered a couple of plasma packs and drank one. Their royalty report was $1950. Eve got very inspired after hearing one of her tracks on the radio and went into the kitchen to make a group meal of garden salad.

    Eve reached Cooking level 2, and now Aeric has some healthy options. Eve then purchased a violin and a child's activity table. Aeric woke up and played with a toy. Eve did some light housework, then she looked for a gig. Eve took another logo gig and headed over to her computer to chat with the client. She listened to the World Music station while she worked. Lilith invited her out to lunch at the Diving Pelican, and Eve accepted. Hopefully, it's not too sunny in Brindleton Bay right now, but if it is, at least she'll be inside. Fortunately, it was raining in Brindleton Bay when Eve and Lilith got there, so neither woman had to worry - though Lilith might have sun resistance, I don't know. Eve requested a table for her and Lilith. They were seated on the deck, which fortunately has a roof over it. Eve and Lilith chatted over the menus, then it was time to order. They both got the Soft Shadow Avornalino and the fried fish, both Chef's Specials.

    Apparently, Eve had asked for training or whatever, cause they both got up out of their chairs and started doing vampire stuff. Weirdos lol. According to the action, it was show off powers. They sat back down and chatted after that, waiting for Alice to bring them their food. Not sure why, but Alice is seriously ticked off and looks like she might explode soon. Well, she is usually a Chez Llama host, maybe the demotion to Diving Pelican waiter was too much for her? Lilith would make an excellent gym buddy, as she's Active and friends with Eve. And her brother and Adam get along great too. So the club Gym Buddies was born, for now. It's just Eve, Lilith, Adam, and Caleb. The activities are work out, swim, be friendly to everyone, and bathe/shower. And they are all immortal!

    Now I seriously have to take a nap, before I fall asleep on the computer. Hopefully, I'm not coming down with whatever the insanity is that the other two people who live here caught. Blech. My daughter has already had it for over a week. Anywho, Happy Simming!

    You guys know you can comment, right?! :blush:

    McCaig

    McCaig Main House - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    Eve and Lilith continued to chat as they ate. Then it was time to pay the bill of $36 and head home. When Eve got there, she quickly headed inside and did some pushups. Aeric watched videos on his Wabbit Tablet. Eve acquired the Fitness skill. Adam came home from work and brought $504 home with him. Adam quickly headed inside and drank a plasma pack. Eve drank one too. Eve went into Dark Meditation, and Adam went upstairs to potty train Aeric. Eve started reading The Encyclopedia Vampirica Volume Two, and Caleb called to invite Adam to a night club. Adam declined as he had a lot to do right then. Eve reached Vampire Lore level 8. Aeric made a bit of a potty booboo. Adam cleaned it up, then went back to programming his mobile app.

    Aeric reached Communication level 3. Eve got started on that logo she had to do. Aeric went to bed. Eve and Adam chatted as they worked on their projects. Eve submitted her logo, and it was rejected! So she started on editing it. Eve and Adam both ordered 4 plasma packs. Adam finished his daily task, then headed outside where he witnessed his first snow. Then he downed a plasma pack. Eve finished editing and submitted the logo for approval again. It was rejected again! So Eve went back to editing it. Adam entered an Incredible Sports Novice Tournament to get his fun up. Aeric had a nightmare and was hungry, so he came downstairs for some food. Eve reached Painting level 6. Eve's work got rejected a third time, so she sat down to chat with the client. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    Adam didn't win his tournament, so he listened to his wife's track and then played a bit of Incredible Sports. Can't improve if you don't play! Eve finished chatting with the client, who is apparently quite rude, and then she drank a plasma pack. She went outside to tend to her bees and her garden. She also needs to film her Fishing video. Aeric decided to strip down to his diaper, so Adam got up to discipline him. Adam reached Parenting level 2. Adam started teaching Aeric how to say sorry. Eve reached Gardening level 3. Adam went to go read a book while Aeric danced and listened to the stereo. Adam upgraded the bathtub, adding pulsating jets to it. Adam reached Handiness level 3. Eve finished her gardening, then headed around the neighborhood looking for collectibles. Aeric went back to bed. Adam finished the upgrade and drank a plasma pack. Then he went to study the Encyclopedia Vampirica Volume 2. Eve finished collecting, then settled in at the fishing hole to record her Fishing video. Eve reached Fishing level 2.

    Aeric had yet another nightmare, so Adam went upstairs to comfort him. Then Adam taught Aeric how to say sorry some more. The drone's battery got low, so Eve stopped the recording. She drank a plasma pack, put the drone back in inventory, and headed home. When Eve got there, she transferred her Fishing video to the video station. Then she edited the video. Adam finished up with Aeric, then came downstairs to update his social media. Aeric played with a toy. Adam gained 20 followers and now has 32 followers total. Aeric reached Imagination level 2 and tried to go back to bed. Adam left for work. Eve finished editing the video and uploaded it, but must have missed the deadline as she received no payment for it. Eve replied to some of the comments left on her videos, gaining her 180 followers for a new total of 983. Then she went back to editing the logo. Their royalty report was $2032. Eve sent the edited logo to the client, and it was approved! She received $1578. Eve then produced and released a new track for Dinky Beats.

    It was raining, so Eve figured it would be safe enough for her to tend to her bees and her garden. I should probably stop ignoring the invites to friend's houses, but none of my sims ever seem to get anything from that. Eve finished up, then entered Dark Meditation as her energy was getting low. She then drank a plasma pack. Then she went for a jog - maybe as a bat. Then she played in the rain. She then went inside to start a large surrealism painting. Since she has over 5k aspiration points, it's time to see what traits or whatnot she is going to get. She already had the money tree, so she went with Super Green Thumb. Eve finished her painting and sold it for $204. She wanted to paint another, so started a large impressionism painting. Eve wanted a TV, so they bought a large flatscreen. Now they are back down to just over $1k.

    Adam came home with $504. He was thirsty, so drank a plasma pack. Adam then started a club gathering of Gym Buddies. The club mechanics mostly directed the show. Adam and Eve chatted for a bit, then headed upstairs to work out. Vlad showed up as the membership of the Gym Buddies is mostly the same sims as The Vampire Club. Adam and Caleb chatted as they lifted weights. Eve got the attention of the Gym Trainer. Lilith joined the boys in lifting weights. Eve headed to the showers when she was finished on the treadmill. Lilith complained about her bladder?! Octavia Bailey had a fit about something while lifting weights. *shrug* Adam decided to push the limits and got on a weight machine. Eve drank a plasma pack while Adam hit the showers. Lilith either used a toilet or threw up in one, not sure which. They both changed their clothes and headed home.

    Back at home, Adam went back to working on his second mobile app so that he could knock out his daily task. Eve went back to her painting and Aeric watched toddler videos. Eve finished her painting and sold it for $219. Eve chatted with Adam for a bit, telling him an unbelievable story and complimenting him. Then she went back to the easel to start a confident painting. It was Adam's turn to hit the Rewards Store - he chose Savant. Eve finished her painting and sold it for $292. Eve checked her agency's gigs, but there weren't any that she was interested in. So Eve started another confidence painting. Then Eve and Adam ordered more plasma packs - 4 each. Eve finished her painting and sold this one for $279. Then she went to practice speech in a mirror. Adam broke his computer, so had to repair it. Adam finished repairing and received 4 common upgrade parts and threw the trash away. I don't know why, but they keep dropping the trash in bat mode. Adam gained another 2 common upgrade parts. Eve drank a plasma pack and headed upstairs to collect Aeric for his bath. Eve changed Aeric's diaper before bringing him to the tub. Aeric and Eve chatted after the bath, then Aeric headed back upstairs to play SimShape. Eve went over to Adam so that she could propose a crazy scheme. Eve wanted to make a friend, so she chatted online with Alex Moyer.

    And that is where I'm going to stop for the night - I'm wiped out! Happy Simming!

    So my mouse locked up on me, and I restarted - losing everything I had written. So there will be a large gap. I'm not happy right now, that's for sure. Think it's time for me to just head to bed. Happy Simming everyone!

    McCaig

    McCaig Main House - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    Mkay, Adam went to observe the sky in the observatory, Eve edited her logo some more, and Aeric watched toddler videos. Adam acquired the Logic skill. Adam got a print of the sky. Adam reached Logic level 2. Eve got a partnership offer - any video, or an Angry Vlog. Eve finished editing the logo, but for whatever reason, it didn't take, so she had to start editing it again. Their royalty report was $2240. Eve's inventory got cleaned out and she made some plasma packs out of duplicate frogs. Adam got another print of the sky. Eve finished editing the logo and drank a plasma pack. Then she sent the logo to the client for approval. It was approved, and she received $1524 for it. Eve then chatted with Aeric for a bit, throwing in some pirate talk when she could. Adam reached Logic level 3. Adam came inside and drank a plasma pack. A book on Handiness was purchased, and Adam went into the living room to read it. The Encyclopedia Vampirica Vol 3 was also purchased.

    After chatting with Aeric, Eve headed down to the basement to climb the rock wall. Eve reached Fitness level 2. Eve then headed upstairs to take a shower. Adam reached Handiness level 4. Adam and Eve chatted for a bit, trying to get all their Pirate stuff out of the way. And Adam's spotlight is apparently fading. Adam and Eve both completed Talk Like A Pirate Day. Adam got really tense due to a thunderstorm, and Aeric got pretty sad. Eve watched some TV for a bit.

    And on that note, I'm off to nap! Happy Simming!

    McCaig Main House - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    Adam wrote in his journal. Eve started a confident painting. Adam finished writing in his journal and ordered himself more plasma packs, then he drank one. Still tense from the storm, Adam took a bath. Eve drank a plasma pack, and the Romance Festival was in town. Geoffrey invited Adam out to the Romance Festival, and Eve tagged along. It would be strange to not bring one's wife, after all! When they arrived, the outing goal was to kiss someone! And it was sunny, so Adam and Eve went into the building to hide from the sun. Adam then kissed his wife to fulfill the outing goal. Then all three of them chatted. Then Geoffrey took off to sing karaoke. Adam and Eve watched him for a bit. Eve harvested some of the plants, and found out that it wasn't safe for her to be outside yet! Eve told Adam a joke, and Geoffrey finished his karaoke and chatted with them again. Eve collected a poster, and it was safe for them to be outside again. Eve's energy was low, so she entered into Dark Meditation. Eve was also getting thirsty, but none of her friends were there to drink from. She introduced herself to Supriya Delgato, who was a vendor. They chatted for a bit, then Eve ordered a Plasma Jane from the bar.

    Adam acquired the Singing skill somehow. Adam drank a plasma pack and they both headed back home. When they got there, Aeric had to use the potty. Eve headed outside to tend to her bees and garden, and Adam regained some energy with Dark Meditation. Then Adam added to his Simstagram story and posted on social media. Aeric reached Movement level 4. Adam gained 12 and 20 followers, for a new total of 64. Adam then invited Caleb over. Aeric went to bed. Eve reached Gardening level 4. Caleb finally came over, and Adam requested some vampire training. Talk Like A Pirate Day was successful! Adam also completed a milestone in Master Vampire. Adam had a couple of power points, so took Garlic Immunity and Guilty Drinker. Caleb and Adam chatted for a while. Then Adam entered into Dark Meditation again to get his energy back up. Caleb and Adam became good friends somewhere in there. Eve collected everything in the neighborhood, then Caleb took off as the sun rose. Eve headed home, and Adam drank a plasma pack. Adam made a dragon sculpture for his son. Eve entered into Dark Meditation.

    Inventories were pretty well cleaned out. Eve went to practice pickup lines in the mirror. Adam finished the dragon and started reading the Encyclopedia Vampirica Vol 3. Eve reached Charisma level 5. Eve then went back to the easel to finish her confident painting. She finished it, and it was a masterpiece! She also completed a milestone of Painter Extraordinaire. She sold the painting for $1371. Adam reached Vampire Lore level 11. They now have about 14k in the bank, thanks to the money tree finally growing. Took about a week! While it was raining, Eve took the opportunity to head outside and tend her bees and garden. She also had to take a moment to drink another plasma pack. Adam had 3 power points, so took a tier of Vampire Strength. Adam sent a happy text to Bjorn and headed for the living room to read something. Eve evolved her bluebell plant to Nice. Eve finished up gardening, then headed inside to produce a track for Dinky Beats. Adam completed a milestone of Nerd Brain. Adam then went to upgrade the bathtub to self-cleaning. Their royalty report was $2292. Eve released her track. Eve then went down into the basement to climb on the rock wall. Aeric woke up and started dancing. No music or anything, just a happy toddler!

    Aeric went to look at a book after he finished dancing. He got angry before he finished the book though. Adam finished the upgrade, and Aeric decided to make a mess, so Adam went to discipline him. Then Adam tried to calm Aeric down. When that didn't fully work, Adam tried to teach him basic needs with flashcards, but Aeric was defiant. Adam disciplined him about that too. Aeric reached Thinking level 2. Adam got a Good reputation. Eve came upstairs and cleaned up the mess. Adam drank a plasma pack then sent Caleb a happy text. Aeric waited to hug Eve. Adam ordered some more plasma packs, then headed downstairs to work on a programming side job. For some reason, Eve turned down Aeric's hug! Eve wanted to start a confident painting, so off she flew to the easel. Aeric ran around upstairs. Caleb invited Adam out to a nightclub at 12:30 in the afternoon! Adam declined. It was Sunday after all, which meant the Accolades were this evening. Aeric went back into the nursery to play with a toy. Eve finished her painting and sold it for $379. Then she invited Dina over. Dina arrived and Eve invited her in. They chatted for a bit, and Eve asked for a drink. Aeric reached Imagination level 3. Dina gave permission, and Eve drank.

    Dina and Eliza Pancakes just don't seem to get along - they always have a bad relationship. Eve keeps on trying to fix it! Aeric went to play SimShape. Caught Aeric just as he was about to use his diaper and got him to the potty. Eve had an ulterior motive for inviting Dina over, but feeding on her had been a mistake! Eve admired herself in the mirror then called Alex Moyer to chat. She managed to make friends with Alex. Then she danced to the stereo for a bit. Adam finished his side job and received $771. Adam told Eve an inside joke, then drank a plasma pack. Eve heard one of her tracks on the radio, and Dina left...just in time for Adam and Eve to get ready and head out to the Accolades!

    When Adam and Eve got there, they had to quickly run in due to the sun. Eve sat down to watch the awards, and Adam went behind the bar to watch Simder. Adam got a text from Aeric about being a good person to know as Adam and Caleb were good friends? Eve won an accolade for best book. As soon as the Accolades were over, Adam and Eve headed home. When they got home, Adam sent a happy text to congratulate Aarav Trivaldi on winning an accolade. Eve went inside to watch some TV, and Aeric came downstairs to get some food. Adam really wanted to take a vacation day from work, so he did. Then Adam and Eve had a mud fight! Afterward, Eve hopped into the shower and Adam drank a plasma pack. Then Adam headed inside to write some jokes. Eve's energy was low, so she decided to sleep instead of entering into Dark Meditation. Aeric headed back upstairs to look at a book. Aeric finished the book, then played SimShape.

    Adam completed the Computer Whiz aspiration. He also completed a milestone of Renaissance Sim, and with over 6k points, time to pick a new reward. He went with Great Kisser and Connections. Adam got bored and wanted to take a nap, so he headed upstairs. Since they had 24k, the kitchen got an upgrade of sorts. Had to stop when they had around 7k. The weekly bill of $711 was paid. Adam woke up and bought himself a drone. Then he went downstairs to study trends. He acquired the Media Production skill, but nothing jumped out at him. So he decided to record himself climbing on the rock wall. Eve woke up and headed downstairs to paint a large classic painting. Adam reached Fitness level 2. Aeric got sleepy and headed to bed. Dina invited Eve out to Chez Llama for breakfast, but Eve declined. She'd prefer to invite Dina over instead! So she did.

    Adam finished recording his video, drank a plasma pack and then hit the shower. Eve finished her painting, and it was a masterpiece! She sold it for $1865. Dina arrived right after that. Eve offered to turn Dina into a vampire. Dina accepted, and Eve began her vampire family! Their royalty report was $2365. Eve asked Dina for a drink. Aeric woke up from a nightmare. Adam went to practice pickup lines in the mirror. Adam reached Charisma level 5. Geoffrey texted Adam congratulations for his promotion. Eve headed outside to tend her bees and her garden. Eve evolved her parsley plant to Nice and completed a milestone in Freelance Botanist. Aeric headed back upstairs to watch toddler videos. Eve went around the neighborhood looking for collectibles while it was still cloudy. Dina took off just as Eve was finishing up her collecting. Eve headed back home...she needed her inventory cleaned out again! They currently have about 18k. Eve made some plasma packs out of some spare frogs. Eve produced and released a new track for Dinky Beats. Then she headed downstairs to the rock wall for her first climbing challenge.

    Adam headed over to the video station so that he could transfer the fitness video from his drone. Then he drank a plasma pack, ordered some more and started editing his video. Eve set 24.54 as the new time to beat! Eve admired herself in the mirror, then she went upstairs to talk with Aeric. Lilith invited Eve out to a nightclub at 2:30 in the afternoon! Goodness, that's awfully early. So Eve declined. Aeric reached Communication level 5. Aeric got off his tablet and asked Eve to play. Adam finished editing his video, and he broke the video station! So naturally, he had to repair it. Adam received 3 common upgrade parts. He cleaned up the trash then uploaded his video. Aeric headed to bed cause he was sleepy. Eve watched some TV. Adam replied to comments on his video. Eve mopped a puddle on the porch. Adam gained 175 followers, for a new total of 239. Eve sent a playful text to Alex. Adam danced to the blues. Adam earned $584 on his vacation day, and the Humor and Hijinks festival was that evening! Eve chatted on the phone with Penny Pizzazz.

    Dina invited Eve to the Humor and Hijinks Festival, so Eve grabbed Adam and they headed off. And naturally, when they got there it was sunny. So into the museum they went for safety. Or is it the art center? Either way. Eve took some time to view the paintings. Eve got a text from Katarina Flex about drinking people's blood without their permission - but Eve never does that? Eve chatted with Dina to see how she was doing, then ventured outside to see if it were safe. Eve drank some tea, then headed back inside to enter into Dark Meditation. Not quite safe yet! Adam drank a plasma pack. Adam headed for the tea, and it was finally safe, so Eve headed out to order food. Adam saw Geoffrey, so he did an impression for him. Adam reached Comedy level 5. Eve introduced herself to Catarina Lynx, and she finished a Friend of The World milestone. Eve was asked to sign an autograph by Wolfgang Munch! Adam introduced himself to Eric Lewis and also completed a Friend of The World milestone. The Jokesters won, so Adam and Eve made a cool $1000. After the fireworks, it was time to head home.

    And that's enough out of me for one day - it is way past my bedtime! :) Happy Simming!

    McCaig Main House - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    Aeric played SimShape, Eve drank a plasma pack and Adam entered into Dark Meditation. Then Eve also entered Dark Meditation. Adam watched a bit of TV. Eve produced and released a track for Dinky Beats. Eve went to the video station to study trends, and Adam did a power sculpting workout video. Eve found out Happy Vlogs were trending, so she started editing one of hers. Adam finished up his workout video and drank a plasma pack. Aeric reached Thinking level 3. Adam went upstairs to get Aeric for his bath. Eve finished editing the video, then she uploaded it. Then Eve went on a jog. Adam finished up with Aeric's bath, and they chatted for a bit. Aeric asked Adam to play. Adam reached Parenting level 4. Eve came inside and started to read the Encyclopedia Vampirica Vol 2.

    Aeric threw a temper tantrum, and Adam disciplined him for it. Adam then tried to calm down Aeric, but Aeric wasn't having any of it. Eve reached Vampire Lore level 9 and became a Prime Vampire. She took Child of The Moon and Sleep of the Undead. Aeric and Adam chatted. Eve reached Vampire Lore level 10 and needed to start reading the Encyclopedia Vampirica Vol 3. Eve drank a plasma pack. Then she tried to calm down Aeric. That worked, and Eve reached Parenting level 4. Eve wanted a pool, so one was built. Not sure when they are going to use it, but maybe the kiddos will. They have about $15k left. Eve went to edit her other Happy Vlog video. Aeric headed upstairs to play SimShape. Adam updated his social media, then started a programming side job. Adam gained 20 followers, for a new total of 259. Eve reached Media Production level 4.

    Eve finished editing the Happy Vlog and she uploaded it. Eve then called Catarina Lynx and chatted with her for a bit. One of Eve's tracks came on the radio, which got Eve excited, then she replied to comments on her videos. Eve gained 150 followers, for a new total of 1133. Eve then produced another track, but it was too early to release it. She then chatted online with Penny Pizzazz. Adam headed off to work. Eve got a partnership offer - any video, or a beauty reviews video. Eve happened to already have a beauty reviews video, so she headed to the video station to edit it. Adam is sizzling at work? Their royalty report was $2877. Eve finished editing the video, turned the thermostat to cooler and then uploaded the video. Eve received $150. Then she released her newest track and started a confident painting. Eve finished her painting and sold it for $355.

    Eve started on flower arranging, as she was getting a bit of a backlog. She acquired the Flower Arranging skill and started doing bluebell arrangements, as those were what she had the most of currently. She does have forever to figure it all out, after all! They had about $18k, so they got a coffin room in the basement, in case Eve needs to sleep. They now have about $4k. Eve's first arrangement came out poor, so she sold it for $6. She drank a plasma pack and started another bluebell arrangement. Her second one didn't come out any better, so she sold it for $6 and then went upstairs to take a shower. Neither Adam nor Eve can plan a birthday party for Aeric...not sure why, the only reason I can come up with is due to them being vampires. A thunderstorm came in, and Aeric was quite sad about it. Adam brought home $584 and a vacation day. He was also tense due to the thunderstorm. Naturally, he hurried inside and drank a plasma pack. He also ordered 4 more plasma packs for himself. Adam then went straight to the stereo to begin repairing it. Eve chatted with Aeric for a bit to try to get him out of his sad mood.

    I need to lay down and rest. I shall return later! Happy Simming!

    McCaig Main House - Adam McCaig, Eve McCaig, Aeric McCaig

    Adam reached Handiness level 5. Eve got another "drinking people's blood without permission" text, this time from Alex Moyer. Adam got 5 common upgrade parts from repairing the stereo. Then he took care of the trash. Time to take Eve into the Reward Store again! She went with Savant. Aeric reached Thinking level 4 and headed for the potty. Adam and Eve tried for baby as bats. Adam reached Charisma level 6. Eve went to write a Romance novel and Adam went to finish his programming side job. Aeric went to play some SimShape while waiting for the storm to pass. Lilith invited Eve to her house, but Eve declined. Adam finished his side job and received $620. He then went back to working on his video game as his daily task wasn't yet complete. Adam reached Programming level 10 - his first maxed skill! The Code Monk achievement was received as well since it was the first time in this save. Eve finished her Romance novel and published it. Caleb invited Adam out to Alien's Night at the Saloon, but Adam declined as there will be a club meeting tonight. Eve ran back inside after publishing her book and drank a plasma pack. Adam started a gathering of The Vampires Club.

    When they arrived at the park, Eve entered into Dark Meditation and Adam asked Caleb to spar. Adam lost, naturally. Eve asked Lilith for vampire training, and Adam asked Caleb. When finished, they mostly just hung out doing club activities. Eve reached Fishing level 3. Then Adam and Eve headed home. When they get home, Adam drinks a plasma pack while Eve tends to her bees and garden and Aeric heads down to the kitchen for some food. Adam is tense from the thunderstorm that hasn't abated, so he writes in his journal. Adam finished up writing in his journal, then hit the shower. Eve evolved her snapdragon to Nice. Adam mopped up his mess from the shower, then he headed downstairs to create some sculptures on the wood bench. Eve evolved her plasma fruit tree to Nice. Then she went out collecting. Eve actually got hit by lightning when she was nearly done collecting!

    06-17-19-9-46-53-PM.png

    She headed home pretty quickly after that! Eve hit the shower first to wash the burnt look off. She got both a Dazed +40 and a Supercharged moodlet. Eve entered into Dark Meditation to revive some of her energy. She then had a plasma pack while her inventory got sorted out. Eve then took a nap in her coffin to maybe shake off the dazed moodlet. Aeric got angry due to low attention, so Adam stopped his woodworking and headed upstairs to calm him down. This time it worked. Adam then taught Aeric his numbers using flashcards.

    This is where I'm going to stop for the night, as I need to get up early tomorrow! Happy Simming!

    Had to switch families for a bit, as I really wanted to play this one - once I figured out what household I was in! They've been with me since the Positivity challenge, and Eve is a Kindness Ambassador. I haven't updated to the patch yet, as I'm waiting for more mods to be updated.

    Swift

    Swift Main House - Adam Swift, Eve Swift, Aeric Swift, Nathalie Swift, Angela Swift, Bianca Swift, Babette Swift

    Eve finished her aspiration as soon as I loaded their lot. She completed Big Happy Family and is now on Super Parent. It's also Angela's Teen to YA birthday!

    Quick peek at their house, since I don't remember what changed etc. since I last showed it.

    Outside
    06-18-19-9-30-12-PM.png

    Adam went to go upgrade the sauna, as he is currently running out of things to upgrade. Eve went to the kitchen to make a honey cake for Angela's birthday. Aeric headed inside to produce a new music track. Nathalie headed over to the greenhouse to tend to the garden and the bees. Angela and Bianca chatted for a bit, and Babette headed upstairs to play Draw With Llama. And of course, as soon as I unpause, the rain turns into a thunderstorm and everyone is tense or sad for the most part. Peachy.

    Adam received his pension from being an eSport Gamer of $410. Aeric released his track, but apparently, my notes were wrong and he doesn't have a music label - or lost it at some point. Bianca got tense due to her clingy phase and headed inside to write in her journal. Aeric headed upstairs to his computer to mediate the forums. Eve finished the honey cake and put birthday candles on top. Then Eve headed to her computer to write a biography. Angela finished writing in her journal, then she headed to the kitchen to blow out her candles. Angela aged up and added Ambitious to her traits. She also received Responsible, Good Manners, and Compassionate from her character values. Angela became my first Scientist - she is a Junior Tinkerer now. The family received $448 - from Angela getting a job maybe? Then it was time to pull Angela into CAS for a bit of a makeover.

    Here is YA Angela:
    06-18-19-10-26-13-PM.png

    She still looks pretty much the same - didn't really change much. I updated her makeup slightly, but I'll do more when I'm actually sick of her clothes, which may or may not happen lol. Then I had to build her a house because for some reason I thought I had more time before her birthday. Then Angela moved out of the Main House. We'll see her again at the end of the rotation. Of course, since I went into Manage Households, my wants/whims are all out of whack. So I got to get everyone going again! Adam and Aeric headed to the kitchen for food, and Eve resumed writing her biography. Nathalie went back to her gardening. Bianca headed for food and Babette played Draw With Llama. Babette quickly reached Imagination level 5. Now all she has left is Potty. Adam checked his aspiration balance and then headed to the Reward Store but he had nothing to buy. Aeric hit up the Reward Store as well and got Frugal, Marketable and Night Owl. Which also reminded me that I needed to change the bill amounts! This household has more money than they know what to do with lol.

    Aeric secured Adam's vote. Nathalie is the only one with a music label, and she has Dinky Beats. Their royalty report was $3789. Eve finished her book and braved the thunderstorm to publish it. Bianca reached Social level 6. Eve then went to go practice the violin. Aeric got signed with Dinky Beats and received $399. Adam played with Babette, then they chatted a bit to get Babette's attention up. Bianca did her homework. Adam got angry over some aggravating conversation, so out came his journal. Aeric produced a new track, but he couldn't release it just yet. So he called up a random contact and chatted on the phone for a bit. Adam bought himself 20 more upgrade parts so he could continue to upgrade things. He has upgraded nearly everything at this point! One of Eve's friends passed away.

    And on that note, me thinks it's definitely bedtime! Happy Simming!

    Patched last night, after most of my major mods updated. MCCC is an absolutely required mod in my game! Still have a few mods outstanding, but I removed them.

    Swift

    Swift Main House - Adam Swift, Eve Swift, Aeric Swift, Nathalie Swift, Bianca Swift, Babette Swift

    Eve started a confident painting. Aeric went to cannonball into the pool. Nathalie went back to tending to the bees and garden. Bianca practiced her lines for Drama Club. Babette danced to the stereo. Bianca reached Creativity level 10. Aeric lost his shorts in the pool. Nathalie released a track for Dinky Beats. Eve got really sad about her friend that passed away, so she wrote in her journal. She also has the Emotion Bomb quirk. Nathalie reached Singing level 3 by practicing on the microphone. Adam finished upgrading the robot vacuum, and Babette beelined for her grandpa to chat. Eve chatted on the phone with someone whose name I can't recall atm. Aeric and Bianca chatted. Another thunderstorm blew in, so Adam comforted Babette. And it's almost time for the adults to head to the Accolades.

    Adam, Eve, Aeric and Nathalie all headed to Studio PBP for the Accolades. Apparently, this triggered a family club gathering, so Bianca showed up too. Aeric reached Parenting level 6. Eve won an accolade for best book. Nathalie apparently learned about a Guppy from Aeric. Then Aeric apparently learned about Tilapia from Nathalie. The ceremony closed and they all headed home. When they got there, it was time to be semi-productive. Adam went to his computer to work on a long routine since he almost has comedy maxed. Eve went to finish her confident painting. Aeric headed to the bathroom. Nathalie headed to the kitchen to cook some breakfast for dinner. Bianca got on Eve's computer to chat with her cousin Bradley. Babette headed upstairs to talk to Blarffy. Adam's friend Liberty (Lee) passed away, so he's pretty sad. So he stopped writing comedy and got out his journal instead. Eve finished her painting and sold it for $1900. Everyone was hungry except for Adam, so they all headed to the kitchen to get some of the omelets Nathalie had made. Eve's accolade went on a shelf in the living room and their household inventory was cleaned out - they somehow got some really random items in there.

    And that is all the play time I have for today, unfortunately. Not sure what tomorrow is going to look like either. Happy Simming!

    After eating, Nathalie went to paint a large abstract painting. Eve went to admire herself in the mirror. Bianca hit the bathroom. Aeric and Babette became Good Friends. Adam finished writing in his journal, then he headed to bed. Eve picked up some trash, and then she too headed to bed. Babette headed to bed. Aeric headed to bed. Bianca headed to bed. Nathalie finished her painting and sold it for $217. Then she too headed for bed. Their weekly bill of $8894 was paid. Adam received his retirement pay of $410.

    I'm having an issue where Babette won't change into her jammies or sleep in a toddler bed, so I have to investigate that one cause she is ANGRY now cause she hasn't gotten any rest. First up, to figure out if it is a mod. And it's a mod, just don't know which one(s). So I put in the ones I know were updated. It's not one of them, so now to see if it's one of the two mods I think it is. Wasn't either of them, so I'm still testing - and I only have like 35 files, but it still takes a while to test them all! And it turns out to not even be a bad mod, but a bad resource.cfg. *sigh* Either way, it's fixed!

    Now I'm off to bed. Started this insanity at around 11/11:30 - and it's now nearly 3 am. Happy Simming!

    Aeric went to work and Bianca went to school. Adam was still feeling very sad about the death of his friend, so went downstairs to his computer to blog about his feelings. Eve went down to the video station to study trends. And that gave me nothing! So Eve went to practice the guitar. Nathalie woke up and chatted with Tanvi Kumar. Eve received a partnership offer of any video. Nathalie's inventory seriously needed to be cleaned out! With that taken care of, Nathalie went to work out some and streamed it on the drone. Their royalty report was $4882. Nathalie gained 125 followers, for a total of 125. Adam went to write in his journal for a bit. Nathalie gained 125 followers, for a total of 250.

Aeric got promoted to Elder Statesperson. It was basically a flood of dead people. Maaike Chauhan and Miko Cahill also died. Everyone but Aeric is sad. Adam blogged his feelings.

    Aeric secured Adam's vote. Eve went to go write in her journal. Nathalie went to hit the bathroom and paint a sad painting. Adam went back to writing in his journal. Aeric put away some clean laundry the butler had done. And the deaths just keep on coming! Aeric got tense about a broken umbrella, so he too went to write in his journal. Bianca came home from Drama Club and started writing in her journal as well. The household is a mess right now! Eve got an invite to the Blue Velvet from Angela, but no one was in the mood to go dancing. Eve needs to rescue her journal from the bookcase again lol. The butler is right on top of that!

    I'm off to nap for a bit - I shall return! Happy Simming!

    Swift Main House - Adam Swift, Eve Swift, Aeric Swift, Nathalie Swift, Bianca Swift, Babette Swift

    First things first, we set up a birthday party for Eve, since her birthday was this week. Eve saved her journal from the bookcase, then she went to study trends on the video station. Angela called Aeric to chat. Aeric reached Writing level 5. Nathalie served some dinner. Adam grabbed a plate of some food that was already out. Bianca started her homework. Angela had called Aeric to spread some juicy gossip about Nathalie. Aeric went to go admire himself in the mirror. Bianca finished her homework and started working on her school project. Eve went over to talk to Aeric about her dreams. Adam cleaned up his plate then headed over to his computer to play Road Rival Alpha for a bit to get his fun up.

Babette had a bit of a potty accident, so now she's even sadder! Adam went to the music station to produce a track. He also released it, even though he doesn't have a music label atm. Adam wanted to read a book, so he read Rocket Science Vol 2. Aeric woke up and hit the bathroom. Eve grabbed some breakfast. Nathalie got sad again and went to play the piano.

Babette grabbed some food.

    Eve chatted with Tanvi Kumar. Aeric came down for some breakfast. Nathalie acquired the Piano skill. Eve sent a happy text to Hugo Villareal and then went to lounge in the kiddy pool. Aeric went to tell Adam a joke, and Babette played with Omar (the butler). Bianca got up to get ready for school. Eve filled the bird feeder, then she went to soothe Babette. Aeric went upstairs to get a workout in before work. Adam got his retirement pay of $410. Babette didn't want to be soothed apparently. Nathalie reached Piano level 2.

Nathalie finished her shower and headed for Eve's computer to blog about her feelings. Bianca headed off to school. Aeric finished his workout and he headed off to work.

    Adam decided to switch to writing in his journal. Eve soothed Babette, then she headed outside to get the mail. Nathalie headed out to the greenhouse to tend to the garden and the bees. Adam reached Writing level 8. And of course, they got more mail before Eve had a chance to go out and get the first batch! Eve got a fan letter, so apparently, that's all there was. Though there were some toys in Babette's inventory that may or may not have been new. There was also a decorative collectible plate in household inventory that I have no idea how it got there. Eve went for a jog. Babette went upstairs to play with the blocks table. Eve reached Fitness level 4. Their royalty report was $4276. And the GeekCon is in town! Adam got himself a cup of tea. Eve headed over to Adam to enthuse about her interests. Adam got invited to GeekCon by a ghost, so naturally, he accepted.

    When they arrived, Adam gave himself a pep talk in a bathroom mirror. Adam participated in Hackathon. He completed it with a score of 80%. He grabbed a poster then took part in the Ultimate Gaming Test. Adam received first place in the Hackathon, and Bianca finished the Whiz Kid aspiration. Aeric brought home $1848. There are like 0 YA's or younger at GeekCon - it's all Adults or Elders! :open_mouth: Wonder if my game stopped generating them? Items were already disappearing when Adam could finally head home.

Bianca sent a happy text to her cousin Bradley Flex. Then it was homework time! Aeric received a collectible print of the sky. Eve cleaned up her bowl and tried to cheer up Nathalie before heading off to the bathroom. Bianca finished her homework and headed upstairs to learn her lines for Drama Club. Babette went potty after talking to herself in the mirror. Eve got an invite to Paragons, which she declined. Babette reached Potty level 3, then she came downstairs for some food. Nathalie's inventory was cleaned out as much as possible. Enzo invited Adam out to Alien Night at the Old Quarter Inn, but he declined as the family just has too much to do at home right now. Nathalie produced a track for Dinky Beats and released it. Then she headed to bed. Eve headed out to the greenhouse to do Nathalie's chores.

    And on that note, I think I'm going to head to bed. Not feeling all that great. Happy Simming!

    Stupid power outage really cut into my simming time today! Something about a neutral wire coming unhooked and sliding down the pole. *shrug*

    Swift

    Swift Main House - Adam Swift, Eve Swift, Aeric Swift, Nathalie Swift, Bianca Swift, Babette Swift

    Bianca finished learning her lines and headed to bed. Aeric released his track for Dinky Beats, then he went to secure Omar's vote. I took some of the perfect plants out of the greenhouse for now - there just isn't a lot of room in there for everything! Aeric chatted with Omar for a bit, then headed off to bed. Eve evolved the tomato plant to Nice. The chamomile also evolved to Nice. Omar came out and helped Eve in the greenhouse. Adam woke up and headed downstairs to write in his journal.
