de Leeuw 1 - Round 5

The de Leeuw Family
Johnny is 57, Larissa is 47 and Elisa is 10
Elisa: I'm only 11 years old, but I already know I want to keep living in SimsVille, preferably in this house! It's just great, I love the deck at the back and the fact that the house is actually on a cliff!
Turning 11, also made me realise that I need to think about the future. I know what I want to do, I want to get into law enforcement, keep the city safe and stuff like that. But I haven't yet decided if I want to go to university or not. I don't need a degree for what I want to do, but it sure would help.
It's not a money-usue. Dad was always so proud of what he achieved after moving to SimsVille, so it really is up to me.
Speaking of dad, he's getting old. I found him taking a nap one day, when I came home from school. He never did that, and it's strange!
I don't know what has gotten into him lately. Does he feel to old for mom, I don't know, but I also don't know what flirting with other women will get him! I got so mad when I saw it! Maybe it's stupid to get mad about, but I just think it's something you don't do!
Mom of course, doesn't know a thing, and I'm not planning on telling her, as long as it stays with flirting and nothing more, there is no need to worry her!
The only one who knows about it, is Blob, my cat. I tell him everything, he's my best friend! I know that souds pathetic, but he is!
And it's not like I don't have any other friends, I have Maddy, and Fran├žoise, and some other kids at school. Saturday night mom allowed me to go out with Maddy. We went to the B&B. I really liked it, and to be honest, I'm not that bad at bowling.
On sunday I went to the gym. It made me doubt my decision about getting into law enforcement. Sport is my passion, and being at the gym, made me think about opening one of my own. I know there already is a fitness, but some healthy competition will be good. So many things to think about!!
When I got home from the gym, I found mom crying. Dad just passed away. I started thinking about my last days with him, and now I feel so bad that I never said that I loved him again, and that I was still mad at him about the flirting!
So now it's just mom and me, and Mairi of course, but she doens't live with us. I don't think I will ever tell her about what dad did. I just need to find a best friend or a boyfriend to talk about these things, Blob is great, but he doesn't answer back.

Note: after another one of my elders died before he became 65, I decided to manually adjust the lenght of the lifestage at SimPe. It's not like I love that stage, but it's just not natural for everybody to die before they reach the age of 70!

  1. I'm not much of a fan of the elder stage either but I've got mine adjusted so they can live up until about 95! Anything for realism, LOL!
