Monday was a holiday. Or maybe Friday was a holiday and this was Sunday? Wow, when nobody is working and going to school, you sure lose track of the days.
At any rate, Christof was up early talking to Larry Pierce on the phone.
Not sure how that conversation went.
Branden began a structured morning with coffee and his homework.
Then he took some personal time to call up Lacey, the girl he danced with at prom.
He just couldn’t stop thinking about her since they danced together. It was so sweet.
It appears that she, however, was able to stop thinking about him.
A poisoned apple.
She does have some very strange ideas about parenting.
I took some time to practice my heroic firefighting moves.
Um, that one just got a little bit out of control, that’s all.
And Erin needed to use the potty.
At least she tries really hard.
Caitlyn also got a call. This one was from Gustavo Singh, asking her out on a date!
How exciting! My little girl is growing up.
She immediately got out on her broom in the rain to go see Gustavo at a local club.
I do hope I have brought her up right, and she’ll be responsible.
He picked a good place for a date, I’ll give him that.
But then he wanted to stand out in the rain and talk. Perhaps not the best follow-through.
Caitlyn opened up with some smalltalk about crazy things that her baby sister does.
But Gustavo interrupted to talk about me!
He wanted an introduction! And he wanted to know what I thought about men.
I’m not sure what he had in mind, but I don’t think I approve.
Then he left Caitlyn out in the rain to run inside.
Where he hid in the bathroom for hours.
Caitlyn gave up waiting for him and sat down to play Conquer and Obliterate on a club computer.
We had a quieter afternoon at home.
Branden smashed me and Hetal at dominoes.
Deanne watched for a little while and then got bored. She headed upstairs to call a friend from school.
So she could complain about the fact that our upstairs bathroom doesn’t have a toilet yet. Picky picky!
Then she headed outside to our little fishing pond to try her luck, but first she got tangled up in the fishing line.
It didn’t take too much to sort out, and she dressed just right for the rain.
Strawberry appreciated Dinah.
Branden cleaned the cat litter.
And I decided that it was time to make this fireplace more safe so that we could actually light a fire.
At the Port-a-Party club, Caitlyn finished her video game and get really interested in the plants.
Gustavo sneaked out while she was looking the other way. What a creep.
Deanne started a long conversation with the refrigerator. I think she was trying to make peace after Caitlyn’s nasty fight with it earlier.
Unfortunately, Hetal was trying to get something to eat!
The whole thing didn’t go over well.
Hetal managed to wrestle some waffles away from Deanne, but I don’t think they were in very good shape.
Deanne’s fight with the fridge wasn’t going very well.
Caitlyn made it home. That date was a waste of her time, and Gustavo was rubbish. My girl can find someone so much better for her.
The kitties were cute.
Hetal had the usual reaction to eating spoiled waffles.
But the toilet had a surprising reaction to her!
Poor Hetal. It just wasn’t her day.
Caitlyn headed to bed so she would be well-rested for school the next day.
So did Christof and Branden. Such good boys!
Deanne, on the other hand, just couldn’t let it go with the refrigerator.
Sometimes you just have to agree to disagree. It’s one of those important lessons of life.
No fails! The Wonderlands seem to be getting better at living life! Also, perhaps the extra space in this house is helping them keep from route-failing themselves into fails.
It turned out that Deanne was stuck in the floor, and all she could do was crazy idles. I had to reset her.
Her backyard fishing was her childhood free action. I keep hoping that an Angler sim will go out and fish on her own, but I provided a fish pond that Jin never used, and so far Deanne hasn’t used it autonomously either.
