Round 19: Spring 2010
Lake Draper is 53, Ottilie is 50, Rose is 15 and Patience is 8.
(Joanna Gottlieb is 15)

Narrated by Rose Draper (warning: partial nudity)

Ever since I broke up with Luc, I haven't been able to stop thinking about Joanna. I think I might really like her. Is that bad? To be thinking of dating someone else right after breaking up with someone? Anyway, I haven't told anyone except Cordy but I guess I'll probably need to say something to Joanna eventually, huh?

Hi-speed soul

Round 19: Winter 2010

Adam Gottlieb is 55, Athena is 50 and Joanna is 15.
(Wade is 20 and Amelia Moretti is 21)

Narrated by Athena Gottlieb

Adam and I had a bit of a scare recently when Joanna came down with something. It was so scary to hear her coughing. It didn't sound healthy at all.

The Sitko-Moretti wedding

Round 19: Winter 2010

Since David and Kirstin's engagement last winter, wedding planning has overtaken the Sitko household. Despite Collette and Kirstin being two of the most stubborn women on Earth, they did finally manage to work together to do what needed to be done.

Winter 2010 birthdays

With Winter 2010 comes Tessa Novak's first birthday. It's not exactly a party but the Novaks have invited a few friends and family members over to celebrate.

Pascal Lachance is 68, Mina is 60, Caleb Moretti is 28, Abigail is 27 and Nicholas is 7.
(Jonas is 32, Tatiana is 27, Jesse Carmody is 25, Evan is 21 and Dominic is 3 months old)

Narrated by Abigail Lachance

Things have been a little awkward here lately, ever since I met Jesse. Or at least it feels that way to me. I don't know if Caleb actually suspects anything. I want to tell him about Jesse but not until I figure out what I'm going to do.

There's a reason

Round 19: Autumn 2010
Last update: Jesse/Evan and Amelia
Warning: partial nudity

Jesse Carmody is 25 and Amelia and Evan Moretti are both 21.
(Caleb is 28, Abigail Lachance is 27 and Wade Gottlieb is 20).

Jesse, Amelia and Evan became room mates shortly after Jesse had worn out his welcome at his uncle's house. Amelia and Evan could have stayed at home for longer but they were desperate to get out on their own. So by pooling their money together, they had just enough for a deposit on an apartment in Exeter.

It's been a few years now since Samson's death and we finally decided to choose a picture to hang up. The boys were so young when he died and I want them to remember their dad.

Autumn 2010 birthdays

It's approximately 8:30 in the morning when Anna Collins goes into labour. She can't wait to get this baby out. There are so many reasons, not least of all being finally able to get out of these pseudo-hippie clothes she's been wearing for the past 6 months!

With arms outstretched

Augustin and Hanna Novak are both 55, Naomi is 35, Owen Nihill is 33 and Adrienne is 3
(Madelyn is 30, Kimberly is 39 and Collette is 65).

Narrated by Naomi Novak

I'd never advise any of my clients to dye their own hair but I figure being a gold level cosmetologist, I could handle doing my own hair. I've decided to go back to my natural colour. I was getting bored of being a redhead.

Stay young

A quick update on Sullivan Primary School. It wasn't quite as insane this time as it was in Round 18 - 12 students, as opposed to 15 - but I was feeling a little lazy so they mostly just did their own thing. Which is apparently skilling - I might have a bunch of future Knowledge Sims on my hands!

The students are: Sarah Carmody (aged 5), Calvin and Troy Clarke, Aaron Novak, Nicholas Moretti (all aged 7), Josie Benton, Patience Draper, Maia Novak (all aged 8), Claudia and Victoria Kirby, Finn Romilly and Jacob Weaver (all aged 9).

The grim death march, otherwise known as the start of school.

Since Tessa was born, Jace has been putting in a lot of extra time at his store. He's had to put up with uppity customers...

Summer 2009-10 birthdays

In most places, a woman going into labour might draw some attention but in the Lachance-Weaver household, the imminent arrival of Baby Lachance almost goes unnoticed. Jonas is about to play some video games before work, Liam is flirting with Arianna and Jacob is getting in the way.

Teenage FBI

Round 19: Spring 2009
Xanthia is 78, Tate is 39, Zelda is 34 and Josie is 7
(Araminta is 46 and Anna is 31).

Narrated by Zelda Benton

So we didn't think it was going to happen but it did! I'm finally pregnant again. I'm still a year off qualifying for fertility treatments so that we were able to fall pregnant naturally was a relief.

The long cut

Round 19: Spring 2009

Charlton and Aphrodite Nihill are both 64, James Novak is 34, Madelyn is 29, Aaron is 6 and Ethan is 3.
(Augustin is 54, Troy is 6 and Jacob is 8).

It's the beginning of Spring here in Sullivan but it's still freezing! There's still snow on the ground and even a short trip outside to take out the recycling requires many layers of clothing!

Spring birthdays 2009

Megan has woken up once again with an urgent need to reach the bathroom and is now wide awake, unable to sleep. To pass the time, she gives one of Victoria's video games a go.

Mina is 59, Zelda is 34 and Nicholas is 6).

Narrated by Anna Collins

To appease my mother-in-law, I'm still job-hunting, even though I've kind of lost interest in the process. There's nothing out there, for one thing, but I also really like being home all day.

Somebody told me

Round 19: Winter 2009

Araminta Romilly is 46, Henry is 44, Ione is 13 and Finn is 8.
Narrated by Ione Romilly

So this is our new house. It would be perfect except for the fact that I have to share a room with Finn now. Mum and Dad have been struggling to afford our old house since before I was born, so we finally had to downsize.

Winter 2009 birthdays

...or birthday, as there's only one this time.

And going by the fact that Jace is still asleep, this birthday is apparently not a very exciting one. It's number 3 for Jace and Magdalena, so maybe he just figures she can handle this one on her own.


Round 19: Winter 2009

Collette Sitko is 64, Julian is 59, David Moretti is 27 and Kirstin is 25.

Narrated by Kirstin Sitko

My brother Owen and his fiancée Naomi moved out of Mum and Dad's house and back in with her parents a few months back, which worked out great for me and David. We moved straight in after graduation.

I'm back!

I just arrived back in Sydney a few hours ago and am very glad to be home. We had a great trip although there were plenty of problems along the way, including a 15 hour delay at LAX and multiple minor bungles by American Airlines (who I have vowed never to fly with again!)

Anyway, I'm going to take a few days to get caught up with everything I've missed, blog-wise, over the past few weeks and then I'm going to get going with Sullivan again. It feels very strange to be at a computer thinking about Sims again but I'm looking forward to getting reacquainted with my Sims and all of yours too. :)
