Bladderstone Week 25

I have been sneaking in about 30 minutes of play time in the morning before work this week and then I get about an hour of play time after work before my husband gets home.  Since I moved the gaming back into my office/spare room on the desktop, I don’t get to play in the evening as much as I like to spend that time with my husband and I only have the laptop with me in the living room.  But this weekend he will be taking care of his mom, so I should have time to finish up the last two weeks of this challenge.  Palmer has 10 days until he becomes a young adult and that will be the end of the challenge.  I will do one last update of the remaining streamers at that time also, and I will upload anyone that I can to the gallery.

We enter week 25 on New Skill Day.  The entire family, except Brittany had made a resolution to raise a skill by a level, which they have all completed, not realizing that they would have a day just for that coming up.  So they get to do it again. Palmer starts off by leveling cooking with this platter of hot dogs.

Brantley leveled comedy.

Percy leveled cooking with franks and beans.

Octavia practiced singing.

Brittany kept practicing mixology.  Despite gaining two levels, she didn’t get credit and had an “awful” day – and she was two hours late to work.

Ripley got better at video games

Barney gets his Sunday bath.  Brittany has floating stars because she has been comforting teens over someone’s death.  I can’t even keep up with who has died these days.  The grandkids are dropping now along with the kids, and everyone is always having to deal with the sadness.

Percy then takes Barney for a long walk even though it is raining.

I almost missed Percy’s birthday today.  But I didn’t and he moved out with Barney. (and now I have to go to work)

(I am home for the weekend – woot – time for Star Trek TNG and Sims.) Brittany continues to build her mixology skill, almost reaching level 10 before she has to go to work.  It is a miracle that I notice it is time for her to go to work on time and she isn’t late, again.

This week’s projects – I just realized that the box shows what the project is – duh.  Also, the kids come home in a variety of moods: Ripley is energized, Octavia is bored, and Palmer is enraged (and crying).  And I just realized I put all three of the youngest in gray.  That is unusual as I like colorful clothes.

Temper, temper.  Octavia and Palmer were snipping and sniping at each other while working on their projects and they both ended up in time out for being mean to each other.

The boys were talking and blew off school, or most of their morning classes.  It was lunch time before they finally went to school.  I kept canceling their chat action and it kept popping back into their queue.  They were determined to chat.  Maybe they knew it was their last day at home together.

When Ripley gets home from school it is time for his birthday and time to move out.

Brittany is working on leveling more skills.  The question is now how many can she and Brantley master before Palmer becomes a young adult?  Brittany currently is at 9 while Brantley is at 7.  Surprisingly, Brantley still has not maxed handiness… I am really not sure why he hasn’t since everything breaks a lot.  Which brings us to the end of the week.  One more week, two more birthdays, two more posts.  Tomorrow.

Streamer Updates

So I just realized I can go into CAS from the manage household screen – yeah, I’m a little slow but I don’t normally play multiple households so it isn’t something I have ever done – but now I know.  I could have fixed their hair, clothes, and appearance in general…  As for the twisted branches, I am not even tracking the level of interbreeding anymore because, well, just because, I now have Bladderstones marrying and breeding with Bladderstones… 😉

Current count: (I think… some of these are duplicate counts as they show up in two places on the family tree as their mom and dad are blood relations making them both grandchildren and great or great-great grandchildren >.< so I just counted the number of pictures, not the uniqueness of sims because my head is spinning from the interbreeding…)

About Teresa 1091 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
