We start this new round with the birthdays of this season, as ussual! The fist family we visit for this post, is the Zang family. Tosca has gone through it all once before, but it feels just as bad this time. She keeps wondering why she really wanted another child!
So I have finally ended round 8! In game is was finished some time ago, I even played a little bit of round 9 already.
First off, some updates ago, someone asked me how many sims I have in SimsVille at the moment, so I did a headcount. And here are the results:
I have 38 playable males and 40 playable females, so this is a total of 78 playables. I also have 9 male playable NPC's and 4 female playable NPC', this is a total of 13 playable NPC's.
This brings the total to 47 males and 44 females, and a complete total of 91 sims!
For round 9, I played a little bit with the rotation. Since I wanted my school to get updates, and I wanted these updates to happen in the first year of a round, I had to move those families to a place sooner in the list. Since I had to change the place of others too, I decided to change the whole playlist. Check out the new playlist. As I already said I'm going to post updates of the schools. I have been thinking about posting about university too, and I think I'm going to do it. It will be in 2 updates, 1 in every fall. Don't expect much of it though, there's not much going on at SVU! You may also have noticed a new page in the bar, Student Index, feel free to check it out, this way you can all follow my little simmies too.
I said, some time ago, that I will insert ROS starting from round 9. Well, I'm definetly planning in inserting ROS, but not right now. I'm still discovering my sims, and I still love planning their lives, maybe a little bit too much!
I hope you will all enjoy round 9, I've loved playing so far.
Next update, will be up, normally, tomorow, and will be the Winter birthdays of 2016!
Sya: When I first graduated Marie and I moved in with my parents. Since Tika and her husband and child live their too, and since they were thinking about another child, the house was a little bit too crowded. Mom and dad saved some money for me and Marie also had a little bit savings, so we were able to buy a little house in Simmeria. It's a nice home and we feel well at home already, although it may be a little bit small once we start a family. But for now it's great. After settling in, we found it rather easy to pick up our life again. Marie is a little bit nervous because the school will open its doors for the first time next winter, and she wants everything to be perfect, she's constantly in front of the mirror practicing her lessons! I tell her all the time that there's no need for such things, but she's stuborn. Since Marie doesn't have much time lately, I try to keep myself busy. My best friend, Marcus Young, lives in Simmeria as well, not so far from where we live, we talk on the phone almost every day. I also meet with him a lot these days. I find it a little bit strange since he has a girlfriend and he hardly spends any time with her, but he doesn't don't want to talk about it, so I just let it. At night I like to watch the stars through my telescope, I find it very calming. I love sports more, but we don't have any room in the garden to put down some sportitems, and I really don't want to go to the gym all the time, so I have to settle with other things. Nights are also the only time Marie gets aways from the mirror, and ask to spend some time with me. Most of the time we spend it in the spare bedroom, discussing what we will do with it. We both want kids, and this room is nice for one, but we are still young, and we want to do everything in the right order, and we want to get married first, so maybe in a couple of years.
I like Marie and Sya together, they look so sweet together. I really want them to have kids, but I also want them to get married first.
I think I'm as nervous as Marie is about the school opening for the first time, next season sim-time :)
Dimitri: Since there were some constructural problems with out house, Andrea and I made the decision to more. The architect usured us that there was no danger, but we both didn't feel safe any more, we demanded a huge part of our money back and talked to another architect for a new house. I have to say it looks great, and Andrea did a great job on the intirior as well. I have to say we are as happy here, as we were in the old one, if not happier! Since we were redoing almost everything, I decided to redo the shop as well. It seems like I can display a lot more items right now. Customers keep comming in large numbers, wich was something I didn't expect. One day everybody would have a pet, but it seems like this isn't the case in SimsVille, and you won't hear me complaining! Andrea's job is going fine as well. I still worry though. She still works nights, and climbs into bed early in the morning. before she has to leave for work, she has a little time with the children. Sometimes I wish she would get a promotion, but on the other hand maybe a promotion would get her an even more dangerous job! The children really love the lunches and dinners they have with their mother, especially Marlys enjoys her mom's attention. Matthew is really growing up too fast. He wants it all a little bit too soon. One day, when I came home from the shop, I saw him kissing a girl! He's only 11, he's way too young! I tried talking to him about it, but he just told me that it's his life. Andrea thinks the same as I do, but she also thinks Matthew is right; it's his life, and he should deside what he wants to do with it. He still works hard for school though, and he's still very keen to go to university in a few years, and he still wants to finish high school as the top of his class, so as long as he does those things, I really don't have anything to say about it! Marlys is still all about toys and bears, and playing in the playground. These thoughts are thoughts that parents want from their children. But she's only 7, so I gues that's normal, she will become a little lady in a few years. Andrea and I don't have much time for each other lately. So one nigth I surprised her with a dinner at the new restaurant. It was nice, just the 2 of us. We were surprised to find the children sound asleep in their beds when we got home!
I know this update are bit an peaces, but when I started to write this one, I realized I really didn't take a lot of pictures, and that not much has happend in this household, so I'm sorry about that!
I really love Andrea in her formal-wear, but I can't dress her like that all the time of course.
Matthew and Laura .... Well it just went natural. He brought her home from school, I let them hang out, and they got along really well, so I thought "why not?" It was only later I realize that he's only 11 ... at least they don't do much, just hang out and an occasional cuddle. It wasn't really what I had planned for him, but they look sweet together.
