The Older We Get

Why is it that the older we get the faster time seems to pass?  Tasha and I are on the threshold of our elder birthdays and Pearl’s teen years are flying past.  She’s even dating the Breaux boy from down the street.  He’s a nice young man and he adores Pearl, so he’s okay as far as we’re concerned.  All of the members of our family are eternally faithful and this is my hope for Pearl and Alec – that they should know a lasting love as we all have. 



Speaking of lasting love, it seems the honeymoon hasn’t ended for Tasha and I.  Here we are playing ‘doctor’ (yes, I’ve finally earned my last promotion and have become a world renowned surgeon!)  Pearl happened to walk past at this particular moment, shot us a dirty look and snapped, ‘Get a room you two!’  Ah the joys of teenage mood swings. 

Aside from my professional success, Tasha has been enjoying recognition as a master inventor.  She has made several items that are guaranteed to make our lives easier and more interesting, among them, harvesters for Mom and Grandma Glenys, a miner for Grandma Raven, and a time machine for anyone who is brave enough to give it a go.  Once she made sure the family was set with masterful inventions, Tasha left he work bench behind and has been focusing on her first love, painting.  While I’m working long hours at the hospital she and her easel are inseparable.

We were so busy that our elder birthdays nearly slipped past unnoticed.  We did, however, manage a small family celebration complete with Grandma Meg’s famous chocolate cake.  Tasha looks as lovely as the day we met…



…and I didn’t fare too badly, either.



All that stood between me and my first taste of ambrosia was my portrait, sculpture, and photo, which Grandma Glenys started before the smoke from the candles on my cake had cleared.  She worked quickly and before I knew it I was at the kitchen table with a plate in front of me and a fork in my hand.  The moment was bittersweet.  On one hand we were that much closer to restoring our ancestral rights among the fae of the Seelie Court.  On the other hand, this was a journey where I must leave Tasha behind.  I hesitated for a moment and, knowing that my beloved wife would encourage me to do my duty, I lifted the fork to my lips and ate my first bite of the dreadful dish.



Within moments a warmth coursed through my veins and tiny pinpoints of light danced around me as the ambrosia worked its magic.  Although I knew I had done the right thing I still felt sad and sorry for myself.  I sought out the one family member I could share my inner most thoughts and fears with…



…but he was busy fishing in the toilet.  That’s a cat for you!

Oh la la! They are so cute together :)

You guys have no idea yet, but Alec aged up to be one of the hottest sims I have seen since Antone Dreamweaver!  Once I got him to move in with the Faes I got rid of the 'I'm going to take over the world' eyebrows and the crew cut that he aged up with.   Ooh la la, indeed!

:D    That just made my morning! :P

. . . and on the same note, it's seems like the Sims game purposely has -no- aesthetic sense.  Almost all the sims I've seen can actually be quite pretty with a makeover or two.  With a few exceptions, of course (Bunch Family, I'm looking at you.)

But either way, I now look forward to seeing your made-over Alec. :)

A Private Affair

I had learned a while ago that Alec would sometimes blow off important occasions, but even so it hurt that he didn’t come to my birthday party.  The rest of his family was there, well except for little Josef who had passed away quite suddenly not long before.  I comforted myself with the idea, probably correct, that Alec just couldn’t bring himself to be around a group of people.  I tried to put myself in his shoes and decided that perhaps birthdays weren’t all that important anyhow.  I couldn’t stay mad at him under the circumstances.  So I settled myself in to make a wish and blow out the candles.  I know you’re not supposed to tell anyone what you wish for, but I wished for Alec’s birthday to be here already. 



I didn’t have long to wait for my wish to be granted…a couple of days later Alec stopped over to the house for a visit and he looked much more…grown up *gulp* than he had before.  Grandma Meg, ever the matchmaker, worked her way into our conversation and before I knew it she had asked Alec if he would like to move in with us.  Part of me was horrified but a larger part was relieved.  I wanted to ask him a very important question and, if all went as planned, I didn’t want him skipping out on our wedding as he had my birthday.  At least if he were part of the family I might be able to exert some influence over him.  To no one’s surprise he happily agreed.



Later that evening  Alec and I were hanging out in our rec room dancing.  I don’t know whether it was the way the moonlight fell across his cheek through the big picture windows or if it was the warmth of his hand in mine, but I couldn’t wait a moment longer to ask the question that had been on my mind for a while.



He said YES!

We went back to the house, arm in arm, to tell everyone the news and were met with the predictable flood of hugs and tears.  The grandmas started planning our wedding right away.  Of course Grandma Meg and Grandma Raven nearly came to blows as was their wont.  Alec and I just stood there, bemused, and let the family carry on.  Finally, when we could stand it no longer, we stopped them and told them that what we really wanted was to celebrate with Jack and Jill party and then travel to France to be married there…privately.  The silence was deafening.  You could just tell that Mom, Dad, and the Grandmas disapproved of our plan.  But they finally relented when Grandma Glenys took our side.  ‘Besides,’ she argued, ‘we’ve always wanted a country home in Champs les Sims and I very nearly have enough visa points to buy a house there.’

Well our Jack and Jill (wedding shower for couples instead of just the bride) turned in to quite a wild evening and didn’t break up until nearly dawn.  Someone called in a pair of dancers who were more than happy to put on a show for our female guests…



…the sparkling nectar was flowing shooting across the room…



…and Alec put on a better show than the Chippendale dancers, in my humble opinion.



We had just enough time before our flight left for France to clean up after our guests and catch a few winks.  Our first couple of days in Champs les Sims passed uneventfully as Grandma Glenys wrapped up her level 3 visa requirements.  Then the fun began – we got to go house hunting.  We finally settled on the Crocus House, across the river from downtown Champs les Sims.  After a modest remodel (new kitchen, new beds, and some skill equipment) we sat down to plan our wedding.  Thankfully Grandma Glenys excused herself so that we could focus on what we wanted instead of worrying if we were pleasing her. 

We decided to be married the following morning at sunrise on a bridge overlooking the river, just the two of us.  It was a beautiful, clear morning and we were married against the backdrop of Paris in the distance.





Afterwards we made our way back to the house to let Grandma Glenys know that the deed was done.  Now let the honeymooning begin!




Author's Note:  The wedding turned out to be a fiasco.  I wanted my sims to stand in the alcove on the bridge to be married, but I couldn't get them to stand there.  Then every time I zoomed in to get good photos my viewpoint kept going below the bridge.  Grrr.  By this time the beautiful sunrise was all over and I was mucho irritated, so the lovely wedding I had planned turned out to be two sims getting married by the side of the road over a non-descript river with Paris in the background.  For future reference...no weddings in public places that are not fully owned by the sims who are getting married!

The Waiting Is The Hardest Part

Alec and I discussed starting a family while we were on our wedding trip in Champs les Sims, but the full weight of our situation didn't hit me until we arrived home a week later.  There just wasn't enough room in our house for Alec and I to think about a nooboo right now.  What made it worse was there wouldn't be enough room until Grim came to take Mom.  To make it all the more heartbreaking, although Mom understood the situation, it didn't stop her from dreaming of the grandchild she would never see.



How unfair that my mother should be denied the right to glimpse her own immortality through my child!  I struggled mightily not to resent, even despise, the choices that led to this situation.  What made things even worse was both Alec and I knew that we were bound to repeat this when it was our child was grown.  But in the end there was nothing to be done but wait.  Both Mom and I had our obligations to fulfill and we would do what was necessary for the greater good.

Mom took it better than I did, were I in her position.  She enjoyed every moment she had left with Dad.  The two of them were like overgrown kids sometimes.



She also threw herself whole-heartedly into her art.  She painted her first masterpiece, which proudly hangs in our bedroom.

Alec threw himself into his work, quickly rising through the ranks at the hospital, and I perfected my fishing technique.  I expected the opportunities for work to come pouring in, but such was not the case.  More often I got calls from some promoter or another wanting me to dance at this club or eat at that restaurant.  My heart was not in such trivial matters.

When the day finally came we were completely unprepared.  I had hoped we would have more time with her, but Grim came to take Mom at the age of 93.  A respectable life, for sure, but still not long enough.



As if understanding the poignancy of Mom's situation, Grim was unusually kind - perhaps even apologetic - on his latest visit.



For her part Mom accepted the inevitable with her usual grace and good humor.  My last memory of her is watching her ghost take an overly dramatic swan dive into her headstone.  Way to go, Mom!  Always leave 'em laughing, even through the tears.

Alec was there to comfort me, as always.  One thing led to another and...



A few days later and my happiest wishes were confirmed by the incessant nausea that plagued me.



Although I know Alec hoped for a son, he fed me a steady diet of watermelon until Dad was able to confirm that we were expecting a girl.



My pregnancy was completely uneventful, at least until the end...





Thankfully I had a relatively easy labor, followed by the obligatory sparkles and ...



Meet our daughter, Brianna Fae.  She is brave and athletic, and she is number seven.  If all goes as planned she will usher in the final chapter of our story.  Such a big burden for one so small, but there will be time for that later.  For now I just want to snuggle her and breathe in the sweet scent of new life.
