I'm almost done writing the next update. I'm hoping I actually get some time to play this week. I finished the Philippine house and moved on to the Tomyoy. They kinda make me sad. Neil is really getting up there and Vamsi is not far behind him. I don't know if they're gonna survive long enough for their kids to graduate college.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

It's always so hard when the parents are getting older and the kids are still pretty young. Maybe you could give them each a bit of elixir to make sure they stick around long enough?

I want to, maybe for Vamsi at least. Neil, I've kinda reached an acceptance about. It's still gonna be sad to see him go.

I'm trying to close the gap between my writing and my playing too, but I really feel like playing. I need to stop myself from doing so though, as I know I'll stop writing when I get to far ahead and get the feeling I won't ever catch up again. I'm about one rotation behind now, so time to do some more writing. When I wrote 2 chapters, I'll allow myself to play one family.

It is so easy to play all the time then write. I have finished my round in my B.A.C.C. but need to write it up soon. I do only have about two houses and a university update to write up.

Lol, yeah, that’s the case for like half of the pictures I took. I did make some notes and still half of my pictures make no sense when I start writing. And there are generally just far too many pictures for every update, unless it’s the Kardinaal family - a single Romance Sim, I just don’t like playing that.

I do a lot of writing while I play. I'll try write five or so pictures every couple of game hours. I find that's satisfying both the need to write and the want to play. I'm slowly closing the gap between what I've written and what I've played. I always have a few pictures that I have no idea why I took.

Yesterday I didn't make a lot of progress. I finished playing the Tomyoys and moved to the Starrs. So many children there's not really enough bed space for everyone. So I'm having squeeze beds into random places. I can't until some of these kids go to college. But that's not going to happen until next rotation.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

Finally got done with the Starrs. Now it's off to college. I have 24 kids in college right. I'm definitely regretting having a baby boom. Especially since the Nott family still has nine kids that need to go. But at least some of the Diem and Colour kids are starting to graduate.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

I finally have a working laptop again and after spending the last few days making over houses in my latest attempt at an uberhood, I'm missing my BACC families so I think I'm going to play some more tomorrow!
