Closure

I like how sometimes you get the closure you didn’t even know you needed in unexpected ways. Yesterday the Cuban messaged me out of no where. The last I wrote about him was on the 7th of October but that was before we had mutually ended it. We had decided we weren’t a good fit together a few days later on the 12th. We were just two different types of people and while I was willing to try and work out some kind of compromise, I didn’t feel like the Cuban ever wanted to meet me half way. But I’m getting ahead of myself here.

Chapter 16 of the Homemaker Legacy

Paul never gives up wanting to go out on dates or to go steady, he has literally no one he’s attracted to and last time he tried to ask Marsha out on a date she didn’t even show up on a lot. You have to give it to Paul, he is persistent about not letting rejection get to him.

Warning: Picture Heavy. More Under the Cut

20K Hits!

I just wanted to give a huge thank you for 20k blog hits~! I know compared to most websites that’s not a lot and I know it’s mostly because of my Sims 2 mods list but I just wanted to acknowledge and say thank you for coming here. This site roughly gets about 100 hits a day, again I know there are plenty of websites who get way more, but I don’t have enough words to say how grateful I am that you come here anyway. And to the 41 of you following my blog too! Thank you~! Like big, big, big hugs!

A new mods list plus many other updates are going to be coming to the site over the next several months so stay tuned for that. Today I just organized my Homemaker Challenge stuff and I’m going to be doing more of that first before the mods. But anyway thank you again and thank you for being here. Until next time.

Sincerely,

Sarah Smiles

Starting to Prep For University: Chapter 14 of the Homemaker Challenge:

I have to say that I’m shocked over Victoria’s reaction to there being a dog on her bed and actually wanting to praise Shelby. Victoria only has 3 points of interest in animals and she seems so nonchalant about it. But I mean okay, sure.
(I am experimenting with aging mods for those that noticed the Victoria becomes an elder in 32 days)

Going Steady: Chapter 13 of the Homemaker Challenge

Paul gain’s a creativity skill point although I’m not exactly sure when he started taking violin lessons. Must be something he’s only doing at school. But hey good for him. Also because of Minnie’s interest in fishing her interest in nature turned to gardening I guess kind of chance card. I will say, that is something I do prefer in the Sims 4 verses the Sims 2, Sims 4 does a much better job at neiching down specific skill sets and not lumping one interest into all areas. Gardening and fishing are not the same except in the Sims 2. But I mean, hey maybe this is something we can work with at a later date.

Teenagers: Chapter 11 of the Homemaker Challenge

We last left off the Homemaker challenge with a very dramatic episode of the twins getting into private school. It’s late Friday night and Minneapolis had rolled the want to do her brother Paul’s homework. She has the want to go fishing but also to talk about her hobby enthusiasm. I like the idea of her mother hearing noises coming from downstairs and going to find Minneapolis ecstatically chatting her ear off about science. Perhaps she’s asking Victoria if she’s aloud to go star gazing or perhaps excited to join in on a science club at her new school. Either way it’s very late and if she has the same want in the morning to go fishing, New York is going to take her to go fishing again.

A Little Insecure

It’s weird to know that its been a week since I finally finished burning the bridges with Ross and letting the ash settle. In theory a week is not a very long time but like Einstein once said, time is relative.

“A second in one reference frame may be longer compared to a second in another reference frame.”

And that couldn’t be more true. At the very end of my last blog post, I talked about how I had been able to let go of all my anger by forgiving myself. That despite the actions I took while angry, that doesn’t define who I am and remembering that I myself, am enough. That same night, I logged back onto Tinder. I wasn’t looking to date but just looking for… something. I don’t know what. Not validation but I did find that. I was reminded of the facts that I already knew, that I am pretty, funny, sweet, smart and caring. That I have enough love in my heart for a thousand life times. I knew I was finally able to let go and move on from Ross. And because of that, there was this odd sort of peace that had settled upon my heart. Like fresh snow on top of a bloody battlefield.
