Roque 1 - March 2019

Last update/Next update

The Roque Family
Gunnar is 58, Frieda is 56, Yuan is 29, Françoise is 24, Eleanora is 14, George is 4 and Charles is 2
(Benny Min is 14)
Narrated by Ellie
Last month I went to the cemetery with Benny, and I've been sick ever since! It started out with a simple cold and ended with the flu.
Mom has been worried about what's wrong with me. I can't tell her I sat in the freezing cold for hours, in the middle of the night, so I keep saying it's getting around. I try to rest as much as possible.
Mom, and even dad, try to take George and Charles out  of the house as much as possible so I can get some rest and don't get disturbed by them.
I know mom doesn't mind at all. There's nothing she likes to do more than spend time with her grandchildren. And the fact that she thaught Charles to walk makes her very proud.
Mom had been complaining that Yuan and Fran don't do enough with their children, and she never understood that they had another one this fast afer the 1st one. I think it finally came through because, Yuan and and Fran try to be more involved.
Fran even helps George with the thing she never liked as a child! She helps him with his omework. And since his grades aren't slipping I don't think she's doing a bad job.
Sometimes they even bring George to school, which he loves!
They even both gotten a job! It's not much, Yuan works in a convinience store, and Fran found a job as  a hairdresser at My Salon, not that she's any good though. This of course means less time together during the day, and more awkward moment to walk into.
Dad and Fran still run Roque's together, and the place is running great, even better since they did some adjustments.
Dad normally works as a DJ, and Fran works behind the bar, but she tries to mingle with the customers too.
Next to his job in the military and the club, dad helps mom around in the house a lot too. You wouldn't say it when you saw him but he's becomming quite the houseman.
Mom originally stayed home to spend time with Farn and me, and to be able to write more, but with George and Charles around she doesn't have much time to write anymore. The free time she has she spend mostly with dad, which I think is sweet.
When I finally got better, there was a lot of catching up to do. Melina dropped by sometime to keep me posted of what was going on, but there still was a lot of work waiting for me when I finally was able to go back to school.
When I was caught up, I called Benny. We're not together, but I missed having him around when I was sick. I didn't want him to get sick again, so we didn't see each other for about a week or so.
Others might think I'm crazy since he's not the nicest, but he can be so sweet, and he's so much fun to hang out with.
We're not officially dating, not yet anyway, but we kissed, so I think he might want it too.


  •  So Ellie and Benny, you've been waiting for this post. They don't roll that many wants for each other. Ellie rolled some at the beginning of the session, but once he came over and interacted with with one another, it stopped. I do like them together though, so I'm not giving up on them yet :) We'll see them again in June with the high school update.
  • I finally let Yuan and Fran look for a job, mostly because it's not so doable to maintain a household with only one income. Fran works as a hairdresser, and Yuan in a convinience store.
  • Roque's is running pretty good after I completly redid it. Guests actually stay for longer than an hour, and I like it :)


  1. Aww, Ellie and Benny are so cute together and the little ones, so adorable.

  2. Ellie and Benny really are cute together! They're still so young, so the wants probably aren't as big an issue. If they're having fun, that's all that matters.

    I'm glad you got Roque's running a little better. Staying longer than an hour is always good for those "venue" lots.

  3. Roque's looks great! Glad it's running better for you now. Ellie and Benny are cute together, I hope they start rolling wants and make a go of it. They are still quite young to be completely serious/want rolling, so maybe in time.

    I'm glad that Yuan and Fran are spending more time with their children.

  4. I hope Ellie and Benny stay together, because they really are quite cute.:) But they're only fourteen, so who knows... Maybe they'll find someone they're even cuter with?
    The club looks like tons of fun btw.:)
