Zang 1 - Fall 2010

Last update/Next update

The Zang Family
Tao is 56, Yena is 52, Xun is 27, Tosca is 23 and Yuan is 20
Tosca: Moving in with your boyfriend and his parents, and his brothers, ... if I could do it all over, I don't think I will do it again!
Don't get me wrong, they are nice, and sweet, and everything you could wish for in in-laws, but a place of my own sounds so nice! Being able to decorate it as I wish, having privacy without someone asking you what you're doing, it's something I can only dream of!
Since I couldn't find a job on the internet, and I didn't plan on staying home much longer, Xun's mom got prometed, and has to go to work even less then before, I went to the Town Square City Hall, it used to be a chapel but they rebuild it, anyway, I went there, and found myself a job in show business.
That night Xun took me out to diner, to celebrate my new job he said. Before I knew it, there was a little black box on the table! I couldn't believe my eyes; Xun wanting to marry me?! Of course I said yes! Xun really is my everything, he's my reason for staying in that house, he simply is my life!
Back home, I started looking at Xun's parents in a different way. They represent everything I want to be; a loving couple, both succesfull in what they are doing, 3 children, all raised well and finding their way in life.
The night after Xun proposed I asked, my best friend, Tika to go to a club with me. She recently got engaged too, to Xun's brother, Xiang, and we both saw it as something to celebrate. We went to the Last Simoleon, we didn't do much, we just sat at a table, drinking champagne and talking to each other, it was so long since we did that.
I had an amazing time with Tika, and we definately should do it another time, maybe with they boys. When I came back home, I was so tired, I was so happy I could climb into bed, next to Xun.

Wagtmans 1 - Fall 2010

Last update/Next update

The Wagtmans Family
Harry is 41, Mairi is 40, Camden is 11 months
Harry: Life at number 1 Church Road is great. Both Mairi and I are doing great in our jobs. And Camden is growing so fast.
We try to spend as much time with him as we can, we both are, so we don't miss out on too much.
Because children grow up so fast. Camden celebrated his 1ste birthday much sooner than I expected. He's such a handsom little boy.
Since we both are doing amazing in our jobs, I've recently gotten promoted, twice, Mairi and I talked about another child. We don't want our children to be too far apart in age, like Mairi and her sister, so we decided to go for it!
And it was right from the first try! Not soon after we made the decision, Mairi was feeling sick in the mornings.
She decided to take things a little bit slower at work, and stayed home with Camden. I'm so happy she's spending so much time with our son. Sometimes I'm even a little bit jealous, when I take Camden out of his crib in the morning, and he asks for his mom.
I think the little one sometimes feels that his mom needs some rest, so instead of asking for attention, or nagging because he's tired, he just crawls onto Lulu's cushion to take a nap.

Note: Mairi and Harry both had the want for another child, after moving to Church Road, so I had them try for a baby, and Mairi got pregnant after the first try. In the summer of 2011 Camden will have a brother or sister.

Only 1 birthday this season. Julian Zanobi celebrates his 1ste birthday!

de Leeuw 1 - Summer 2010

Last update/Next update

The de Leeuw Family

Larissa is 52, Elissa is 15
Elissa: Mom and I both have been a little bit lost since dad died. I still feel guilty about the fact that I didn't speak to him those last days, and there is now way I can make up with him anymore!
To get our minds of dad's death, mom took me to the beach. Some sims looked at us a little strange, and no-one really talked to us. I think they didn't know what to say, I know I wouldn't know what to say.
I went sunbathing, while mom had fun building sandcastles. Afterwards we had lunch at the reastaurant. I have to say the trip got my mind of dad.
After long and hard thinking, I desided to go to university. I know dad would have wanted me to go, I have enough skillpoints, and mom has enouh money to pay for it. So in the fall of 2012 I will attend SimsVille University!
I feel a little bit bad about leaving mom all alone so short after dad died. But she asured me that it's something I need to do, and that I have to have fun and enjoy life. She will manage, she sais, ahterall she still has Blob, and Blob is great company, I would know!

Draper 1 - Summer 2010

Last update/Next update

The Draper Family
Jason is 32 (Ada van Straaten is 32)
Jason: Finally, I have a place of my own. I used to rent the apartment, and it kind of was my own place. But owning a place is so different from renting one, and owning is so much better.
Lately Mia has been nagging me about settling down with only one woman. She can understand that I didn't do the same as she did, marry the first one I meet, but it's about time to settle down she says. I'm not saying she's wrong, but only one woman for the rest of my life, I dont' think I can do that, I love all the women too much for that.
But I want to have children one day, or at least one to carry on the Draper-name. So I asked Ada to move in. If I want one woman to have my children, it's Ada. She's always been there for me, from my 18th birthday she has been the one I always came back to.
And it's nice not to do everything on my own. Now I have someone to have diner with, to watch TV with. Not that I care for those things that much, but it's nice to have someone to share all those things with.
At work everything is going its way too, I've gotten another promotion, and this time I didn't get demoted directly afterwards!
Ada works nights, she's working security guard for the moment. This means she spends her days at home, and I work during the days, she gets bored.
But we have to mornings to spend together, and that's a nice way to start the day. I can't complain about the living together situation, it's turning out really well. But I miss the other women. I've gotten a phone call from Kristiane the other day asking when she would see me again, and that when I'm trying not to cheat!

Random pic:
I love this picture of Ada going to work, I don't know why exactly I just love it. I think she looks great in her work-clothes, it almost made me decide not to go for promotions!

Young 1 - Summer 2010

Last update/Next update

The Young Family
Marcus is 18
Marcus: Being 18, and being all alone, it's not something I would recommend to anyone. Larissa, my brothers' widow, didn't ask me to move, and I don't think I would have said yes, but it would have been nice, if she just called to ask me how I was doing after mom died.
Well, I'm doing fine, I have my work during the day and it even keeps me busy at night, working to get promotions, to get somewhere in my life. One day I want to move to another house,one I can call my own, getting there isn't that easy, so I work hard.
Of course, life can't always be about work. I try to be social with the neighbors, but they are all young families, the Belio's recently had twins, so they have their hands full, and the Verbons are newly-weds, so they are bust with each other. I invite friends over, like Ingrid Carette, I think we have a nice thing going.
Lately I have stopped inviting her over though. There were a lot of things in the house that needed my attetion, but I also found out she used to have 'something' with my borhter. She wouldn't define that something, but it gave me something to think about, I knew she was older, but this was something I didn't expect!
But when I get into bed, all alone, it feels so lonely. And I really, really like her, and what we have is nice, I don't want to miss that. So I think I will just stop thinking about it and allow her in my life, that is something I want.

Note: Johnny flirted with Ingrid a few times (round 5, de Leeuw), but it never became anything serious. Afer reading Carla's post about playable NPC's I was planning to make her one of those, but I think a life with Marcus is much beter, or maybe something else, we'll see!

Mishoen 2 - Spring 2010

Last update/Next update

The Mishoen Family
Marc is 57, Nuan is 52 and Tika is 26 (Xiang Zang is 27)
Tika: Since Xiang graduated I have been feeling a little bit lonely. When he was still at university, I didn't have that feeling, but since he returned home I kind of felt abandoned. I know it's silly, but I just felt like that.
He came to visit me when he was still graduating, and when he found out how I was feeling, we had some decision to make. Since both his borthers are still living with his parents, and one will keep living there, we thought the house would to too crowded. So we decided he would move in with me and my parents. Sya is at university now, and even if she moves back home there still is one spare room, if necessary.
To celebrate, Xiang took me out to dinner in Upper SimsVille. I've never been there, and I wish we were able to visit some more places, but he needed to work the next day, so we only visited the restaurant, had some diner and went back home. It was so nice, I loved every minute of it!
The next day, I found out mom and dad had been busy when we were out. They have been talking about redecorating the house and even adding some rooms to it, to give Xiang and me some private space. When I heard about it, I immidiatly told them not to do that! I know they mean well, but we hardly had enough money for taxes the last time, we only were able to pay them thanks to a nice bonus dad got, so I want them to save their money.
That night, at the dinnertable, they told is, that if they weren't allowed to give us our own space in the house, we would allow them to at least pay for the honeymoon. Since they were so determined Xiang and I agreed.
We are in no hurry to get married. I really want to be able to do some make-overs without ruining the customers make-up, and Xiang wants to be a little bit further in his career too. And although I never was close with my sister, I want her at the wedding too, without having to worry about finals.
But not getting married soon, isn't stopping us from having fun together. I can't keep my hands of the guy! And realizing he's all mine, doesn't make it any beter! Only the fact that he feels the same way, makes it a little easier to carry it around with me all day long.
I think one day Xiang and I will have what mom and dad have. I'm not that sentimental about those things, but a steady thing like a relationship is always a good thing to have in your life, at least I think it is.

Mishoen 1 - Spring 2010

Last update/Next update

The Mishoen Family
Goofy is 45, Fen is 48 and Tina is 9
Goofy: I love how my life is going. I never thought I would be at this point in my life. Before I met Fen, there was no future for me. But now I have a wife, I still can't believe she's my wife, and a daughter, something I can't believe either!
Occationally there are some incidents, like the fire I started some days a go, but wich household doesn't have them? We didn't have a fire-alarm, so the fire kind of got out of hand, and we almost had to buy a completly new kitchen.
but those incidents are forgotten rather fast. I'm 3 days in the week at home, and those days, Fen stayes home too. Those days are so relaxing, you just have to forget those incidents. Fen and I spend those days together. I still can't believe how much we both have changed! We hardly ever go out!
But then of course there is Tina. She's still a child, and needs a lot of attention. Nio used to give her that, but since he moved out if all came down on us.
I don't mind though. The night before she had her 11th birthday, I sat in her room for an hour, just watch her sleep, nothing more, just looking at my little girl and realizing soon our days of peace and quiet would soon be over.
Fen got me into fitness. She has me running whenever she can, and I just do what she asks, like I said before, I can't believe how much I have changed, I think I need to get out much much more!
In the mean time, Fen is working on her social contacts. She's on the phone a lot, talking to who ever she can get on the phone.
And then we had Tina's 11th birthday. She choose romance as her aspiration in life, just like her mother and me. Just likes she looks like her mother, and has some good parts of me too.
Now we have another teenager in the house. Now she's all grown up, I can't watch her sleep anymore, she goes to beter later than I do, and spends all her time on the internet, doing who knows what.
Now that Tina is all grown up, I started thinking about life, again. I'm glad Fen and I only had 1 child. Now we can put all our time, energy and money into her, and she will have everything she ever wants, and she will never have to share it with a sibling. I know there is Nio, but he doesn't have any intrest in what Fen does.
