But I'm not dead yet.
I have been wholly involved in some real-life happenings that have over-taken game play all together. So here's whats been happening:
1- House-hunting in real life! Turns out that the housing market right now is a buyer's market and it's very competitive. My husband and I have been on the hunt for a permanent home, ready to get out of our sorry apartment ASAP. As it turns out, we found the perfect home only to discover that it sold 15 minutes before I called the realty company about it. So, we did the next best thing: Commissioned the builder to build us that same house in the same neighborhood, but I get to choose all the colors and woods and such.
This is a Sims 3 builder/creator's dream! Gah!
2- The not-so-fun occupation I've been handling is potty training my very stubborn and three-year-old daughter. I've been trying off and on for the past year to potty train her and it seems like the last 3 weeks (yes, it has taken me 3 weeks) have been focused 101% on getting her to use that silly potty.
This is generally NOT the fun part of playing Sims 3, I think we can all agree. Potty-training those little virtual babies is easy, but time-consuming in it's own right. I think my Sims will be child-less for awhile to give me a potty-training break!
With that said, I just bought Sims 3 Seasons today. FINALLY! It's actually downloading from Origins now, as I type this post.
So I will be finishing up the last 2 houses that I shared in my last 2 posts. With the addition of Seasons items included in it.
And now that we're on the down-hill slope of house building and potty training IRL I can get back to some sims content, I think!
