Due to meetings, the usual Wednesday posting won’t be up until Thursday. It works out okay because I wasn’t going to be able to do Friday’s usual post either because of a speaking engagement I have that day. So check back on Thursday for the Lloyd 2 update. Not sure if I’ll get Friday’s usual update up on Saturday or if I’ll just wait until Monday. I’m at the point now that I’m posting updates as soon as I play them, so I have no buffer of entries saved up to schedule for posting on days when I don’t have time to write. I’m actually still in the middle of playing the Sutton update, the next family that comes after Lloyd 2. So I have to finish playing them before I can post any new updates.
Anyway, here’s something I meant to post but hadn’t gotten around to yet. While I was searching through the racks at Goodwill a couple months ago, I overheard the cashier saying to a customer, “When I’m at work, time goes by so slow and when I’m at home it feels like it flies by. I play this game–it’s called The Sims–and when they go to work, time speeds up. Then it slows down when they come back home. I wish real life was like that!”
Oh, I do too. 😀
I could have sworn I checked to make sure Snag-It was on when I played the Smith family this round. I’ve been really good about checking before starting up the game. But apparently I didn’t because when I went to get the pictures ready this weekend I found that there were only a few pictures in my folder.
I played this family before my mother-in-law got sick, so it’s been over two weeks and I don’t remember what all happened this round, except that Ian grew up. So here are the few pictures I do have. I’ll make it up to you on Wednesday with a long Craig update. 😉
Carrie Lloyd Gates looked startled. “Why would you want to date?”
“I need to meet new people,” Robert said. “Move on with my life since your mother’s death.”
The thought of her elderly father dating was enough to make Carrie feel sick.
