They’d heard that sex sometimes brings on labor, so they thought they’d give it a try one morning when Rachel is already several days past her due date.

Winter 2015/2016: Waylon Menon is 36, Baine Austin is 7

Waylon gets up from the little desk in the corner, sighing as he wonders how he’s going to pay the bills this week.

It’s been almost two years since the accident. He keeps the last family picture they had taken together in their old apartment on the wall in their new house so Baine won’t forget her. Some days, it’s hard to see that picture and remember how things used to be, back when they were happy.

Winter 2015/2016: Jessica Craig is 30, Richard Norman is 24 (Tucker Craig is 28, Glenda Craig is 71)

Richard tries to think of something to say, but honestly, he was still half-asleep when Tucker showed up, knocking on the front door one Saturday morning. Jessica is working with one of her clients in a private training session today, but Tucker said he had come to see Richard anyway, not his sister.

Now the silence as they watched TV just made Richard nervous.

PSU, Fall 2015 Semester: Madison Craig, Anna Sutton, Dewey Richard, Mona Wiggins and Bryant Smith are 20; George Tang, Catherine Marshall, Ethan Carter, and Anita Bryant are 18

Renting a house this year was Madison’s idea, but even Anna finds herself excited about it. “No more random people walking around stinking,” she says as she signs her name to the lease.

“No more cheerleaders running around with all that sis-boom-bah and crap,” Madison adds.

Fall 2015: Eric Lloyd is 58, Sunny Sutton is 57 (Emma Lloyd is 26, Zachary and Zoey are 9 months, Sarah Menon is 57)

“In my unbiased opinion,” Sunny says as she breathes in the baby powder scent of her grandson, “these are the cutest babies in the entire world.”

“They are pretty cute,” Emma agrees, gently bouncing Zoey in the air to make her laugh. “And honestly, I wasn’t sure that I would even really like babies.”

Comment or spam?

Let’s play a game called “Comment or Spam?” Because I can’t figure out which this one is:

Author : miss withers
Comment:
you are really taking the urine….

if you had a mind, that considered things at all,,

you might wonder how you might feel if this was an amusement around the globe about your sister mother or daughter…
guess you do’nt have a mind…

Um…okay then. The author comes from the Netherlands. It doesn’t follow the format of usual comment spam I get, which have crazy comment text but links to various sites in the URL field. It was posted to Phoebe Gates’s profile page. Not sure what the author finds offensive over there. Come on, Phoebe is just a four-year-old kid. It’s not her fault that her parents are kind of sleazy! 😉

My stats do show that I’ve had two referrals from people searching for “phoebe gates” and ended up finding my blog. But seriously, this Phoebe Gates is really just a bunch of pixels and a personality in my head. No need to tell me I’m “taking the urine”….um, whatever that means.

Sims 3 update

If you’re interested, I just put up a new post over at my neglected Sims 3 blog. 🙂 I was on vacation for the past almost-week and I played a little Sims 2, but it ended up being Sims 3 that caught most of my attention. I got hit with some ideas on how to make it work for my play style and so I’ve been tweaking and trying things out.

The next Pine Hollow update will be up before the end of the week!

Tax Time (Round 16)

It’s tax time again in Pine Hollow. From playables and townies, Iris Revenue collected $125,418 in taxes. $31,354 will go toward the schools (most of which goes toward the cost of building the new high school) and $25,083 will go toward medical.

The wealthiest families in Pine Hollow this round are:

  • Orion and Bessie Gates – $105,629 net worth
  • River and Carrie Gates – $74,961 net worth
  • Nathan and Terri Gates – $50,680 net worth
  • Charlie and Suzie Tang – $43,725 net worth
  • Eric Lloyd and Sunny Sutton – $40,755 net worth

Once again, Orion and Bessie, River and Carrie, and Charlie and Suzie made the wealthiest list, but Nathan and Terri and Eric and Sunny are new additions. Nathan and Terri lucked out because they turned 25 last year and both received their trust fund money, so they’re suddenly living very comfortably. Eric and Sunny made the list through hard work!

The families that received refunds this year were Seth and Emma Lloyd (having twins before tax time pays off!), Tucker Craig and Cynthia Morris, Edwin and Darcy Chase, Logan and Shelley Gates-Watson, and Zared and Carol Smith. One new thing I added this year was a tax credit for adult college students. Parents can claim a $1000 deduction for any young adult college students, so since I have a couple of adults finishing up further degrees, I gave them a $500 tax deduction.
