1.8 - Summer Vacation

  Isobel celebrated her birthday by herself. She wasn't ready to admit to her family that she was getting older. She wasn't ready.

  Laura had taken to pranking the entire house. Whoopie cushions in all the chairs, spraying taps, dye in the showers. Theo kept getting caught, he was planning a huge attack against his twin. Brendan thought the pranks were funny, not that he'd admit it to his daughter. Isobel just ignored them. She had hopes that her children would grow up one day.

  Laura also continued to improve her cooking skills. She was so proud of herself when she learned to make another recipe.

  Isobel brought home two adorable new members of the family. She was hoping to teach her children some responsibility. The puppy was Theo's new pet, named Audry.

  The kitten was Laura's, named Fitz. Both twins took taking care of them very seriously. The two were probably the most spoiled pets ever.

  The Clark's installed a pool in their backyard. Laura and Theo spent many summer days in the cool water. Mostly challenging each other to see who could hold their breath longest (Laura won every time), or splashing each other.

  Laura started dating this fellow just before school let out for summer. Whenever he wasn't working, he was over at the Clark's house. Theo usually took this time to disappear and go to Hawthorn's house.

  Since Laura's room didn't have a large enough bed, they often stole away into the guest room to have some fun.

  Isobel didn't tell anyone about her midlife crisis. Thankfully her tattoo was not in a spot easily seen.

A/N: I think I have enough pictures for one more chapter. Which is good, because I haven't felt like going into game at all. I haven't felt like doing anything to be honest.

  For those that follow my tumblr, you already heard. for those that only saw my last post where I announce I was pregnant, I will be deleting that bit of text. Not even a week after announcing that, I found out I had a missed miscarriage. I think that I'm finally starting to get better, though still feeling kind of depressed. Hopefully at some point I will get back into things, but don't expect any degree of normalcy from me for a while yet.


  1. *massive hugs*
    I literally just caught up now, I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriage, such an awful tragedy and a pain that is almost taboo. I hope you have a good support system, and plenty of people around to help you get better. We, and your sims, will wait if you don't feel like being around.

    In other news, your sims are super cute and I eagerly await the next instalment when you feel up to it. Xxxx

    1. *hugs* I do have a good support system, most people have been pretty understanding.
      I don't think I'm going to disappear like I thought a couple weeks ago. Though I don't want to forget, I do want to move on. Sims, and the people here who I've met through sims, have always put a smile on my face, and I don't want to leave that behind.
      I did lie though, I do not have enough pictures to make another chapter before having to go in game. But I am going in game tonight. Just downloading a ton more CC that I don't need. lol

      Thank you. I hope to have another chapter out soon. :)

  2. Very sorry to hear about your miscarriage. Hope you're doing a bit better by now. *hugs*
