Promoting Sims 4

I haven’t gone anywhere. I am taking a break before I start writing season 10 (click here for Season Nine). I have an idea on where things are going, but I kind of want to let things sit for a while. Meanwhile, I have been playing Sims 4 and I looked into streaming on Twitch. […]

Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale (Chapter 6)

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! We bought a house last month and are in the process of unpacking everything. We didn’t have an internet connection until a few days ago so I was able to post another chapter until now. I am very sore and tired since moving. My recovery time from strenuous activity seams to be longer than expected. Sigh. I’m hoping to feel somewhat normal soon. It has been 2 years since being diagnosed with breast cancer and I still get very tired. Anyway, enjoy the new chapter!

Genji and I have been enjoying being together. Even though, he likes to cook, especially grilled cheese, he’s not very good at it. The other day he burnt something and almost burned the house down!

We had to race outside to avoid catching on fire. The fire was put out before we burned to a crisp in the sun.

05-29-17_6-03-13 PM

I love my little house but my neighbors have been acting odd lately. I’m not sure what’s going on. Genji and I have discussed moving before and didn’t but this time we’re serious. The neighbors are weirding us out.

07-05-17_7-08-23 PM
Our neighbor stood like this for hours. Shower? Spying? I do’t know just weirdness.

I think I found the perfect house! It has a fireplace, kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It’s even a decent price! Genji and I will have a look at it in a few days.

06-27-17_11-04-31 AM.png

Will they buy the house? Will there be a walk-through with the readers? Will the new neighbors also dress weirdly? Stayed tuned for the next episode of Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale.  If you missed the last chapter, here’s a link …. Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale (Chapter 5)

Thanks for reading! Happy Simming!

Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale (Chapter 5)

Hello, I recently bought the Parenthood Pack and haven’t been able to stop playing long enough to post. Really enjoying the new pack! I changed the title from Whims, Wishes and Insanity to Vivian, a Vampire’s Tale because I thought it was too long.  FYI: Vivian and Genji are married, now. Sorry about the lack of pictures, I took some but can’t find them.

Genji and I are now married. We had a private wedding in San Myshuno’s beautiful Central Park. I love Genji so much so that I could not bear to ever part ways with him. I offered to turn him into a vampire. He accepted.  I thoroughly enjoyed telling my ex-fiance the news which he did not take well and left in a huff.

05-16-17_2-26-23 PM

Shh, be very quiet, I’m hunting humans. Hee, Hee.

05-16-17_2-35-55 PMGnats! Must! Catch! Gnats!

05-16-17_2-36-39 PM

Oh, hello there. Where are you going? Don’t run away! Come back here right now!

05-16-17_2-38-06 PM

I had to chase him into the bathroom. Eww, gross, eating in the bathroom.

Looks like Vivian finished her dinner just in time. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Simming!

Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 4)

Hello! Surgery went well. My surgeon removed the seroma from my left breast. And I’m feeling better, not 100% better but better. She sent the seroma tissue off to the lab and it came back negative for bacteria and cancer cells. Yay!! Next week will be the third week since my surgery, I’m hoping to continue to recover. I’m very tired of being sick. Now, time for a Vivian and Genji  update! But first, I must apologize for any bad grammar or punctuation. I still am battling bouts of chemo brain so bear with me. Hopefully, it’ll go away soon.

If you missed Chapter 3, follow the link. Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 3).

I’m ecstatic that Genji stayed the night. I hope he will stay with me forever. He’s so tasty. Yum! Oops, I forgot Paolo was here.

25

Time to clean up. I wonder where Paolo went maybe he left for home. Whatever, time to clean up.

26.png

Oh, hello Vladislaus. How did you get in my house? Let me use my powers to make you go away….grrr, he blocked them.

27.png

Nice try but you failed in your attempt, Vladislaus. I will never return to you home! Never!

28.png

Genji, meet Vladislaus Straud. Vladislaus meet Genji. Vlad doesn’t look very happy about Genji being in the house. He was betrothed to Vivian. Yes, I said was. She left in search of fun, humans and sunlight. No, she doesn’t want to become a human. 

29

Meet the newest thief in Newcrest.

Gameplay & Other Notes:

  • Seroma is a deposit of lymph formed in the body in response to surgery or physical trauma. These are very common after surgery. I had one from November 2016 to June 2017.
  • Paolo sat and stared at the TV for quite awhile. I think he had too much juice. I really thought he was watching TV until I looked at the picture I took.
  • I have no idea why she is in her swimsuit. She didn’t go swimming.
  • My desktop has a virus and my laptop heats up when I play Sims 3 or Sims 4. Now, that I feel bit better, I’m going to fix or have someone else fix my desktop so I can play Sims 4 on it. My laptop has several games on it and can’t handle them all. Sims is the only one that heats it up.

Until next time, thanks for reading and Happy Simming!

Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 3)

For a few days, Vivian hung around her house, painting and learning new vampire lore. She didn’t know what was in store for her. She soon found out after receiving a phone call from Genji. She thought that he wanted to meet at the gym to workout. Instead, he nervously asked her out. “Good thing, I wore my little black dress, thought Vivian”.  Genji confessed that he felt apprehensive about dating a vampire.

Vivian: “Oh Genji, don’t worry, I won’t hurt you. I really do have feelings for you. Yes, I would love to go out with you tonight!”

16

Vivian: “How’s this? Do you feel better now? No more worries, right? Now, let’s go paint the town red..err, um, I mean, let’s go Party!!”

17

“I feel alive when I’m with Genji, such a sweet man.”

18

Vivian: “This is so fun! The last party I went to was boring and stuffy. No one danced and the only music was from a pipe organ. I could dance all night!”

Genji: “Good, cause I’m a party machine!”

19

20

Vivian: “Genji, I need to go inside, the sun is rising. Will you stay with me? I don’t want to be alone anymore. Coming to this party with you made me realize how much I missed you.”

21

Of course, Genji stayed with Vivian.

22

Genji: “Thanks for making me a grilled cheese sandwich. My friend, Palo is at the door, mind if he comes inside.” (What on earth is Vivan doing? She better watch the grilled cheese. I would hate for a fire to start.)

23

Why does everyone head to the globe for a drink?

24

I missed my weekly posting. Well, I would like to post weekly. The week catches up to me and bam! it’s been two weeks. Good news, I’m finally going to have my breast reconstruction surgery. Yay! I’m hoping  that my surgery will be the end of me feeling poorly. Cancer is awful, cancer treatment is awful. I don’t know which is worse, the cancer treatment or the recovery from those treatments. Anyhow, here are the links to chapter 1 and 2. Happy Simming!! Thanks for reading!

Short Post: My Sims’ Neighbors

When playing Sims 4, I have noticed new and interesting neighbors. I love how my Sims’ neighbors dress and their hairstyles. Pictured here is a lovely lady enjoying a nice sunny day. Her hair is a nice shade of blue.

05-15-17_1-26-33 PM

Here are two neighbors enjoying a pleasant conversation. I love the beard and hair combo.

05-15-17_1-22-10 PM

What a face! I wonder what happened to him.

05-16-17_6-19-24 PM

Mmmm, baked potatoes. Where is she going? I’ve never seen this before. Usually, they stay and eat by the grill. I followed her to see where she was going but she disappeared.

05-16-17_6-15-25 PM

That’s all for now. Next blog will be an update to Vivian and Genji’s story.

Thanks for reading! Happy Simming!

Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 2)

Last chapter (Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 1)), Genji accepted Vivian’s invitation to come over.

Genji suggested that we go to a party. I put some clothes on and off we went. I had a great time dancing. Hmmm….I think I’m a little underdressed. Good thing I packed some extra clothes.

5

Ta-dah! My all important little black dress! Time to party!

6

7

I had a wonderful time with Genji, we stayed up all night. I would still be sleeping but I had terrible nightmare. Well, since I’m awake, I might as well get up.

8

Oh my! What a scary movie!! I should have waited and watched it with Genji. It did make me hungry. Time to visit a neighborhood.

9

Knock, knock…Anyone home?

Summer: Woo hoo! Exercise! Oh, hey there! Go on in, I’ll be right there!

10

Vivian: Did you hear about Mary? She ran off and joined the circus!

Summer: *Umm*

11

I want to suck your blood! HeeHee

1213

Ahh! I feel energized and inspired! Thanks, Summer, see you later.

14

So, energized after drinking from Summer. I’m so glad I caught her after she exercised. Painting and reading, my two favorite things to do made more fun when done together. Plus, I need to catch up on my learning. I’ve been putting it off. Shame on me, since I really need to learn the secrets of sun resistance.

15

Gameplay Notes:

  • Last chapter, she greeted Genji without anything on. She even went dancing in her birthday suit. She put on her swimsuit. I made her change her clothes from her swimsuit to a dress. The rest of time, well, Vivian wears whatever she wants.
  • Summer’s roommate didn’t even bat an eye during Vivian’s visit.
  • Vivian read and painted at the same time. I didn’t know Sims could multi-task like that. I know they can talk and watch Tv or eat but not paint and read.
  • Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 1)

Thanks for reading! Happy Simming!

Whims, Wishes and Insanity (chapter 1)

Hello, welcome to my home. My name is Vivian Stewart, new to Willow Creek. My family home is located in Forgotten Hollow. I relocated to Willow Creek because of an arranged marriage between me and Vlad. Now, don’t get me wrong he has a huge house that I would love to redecorate BUT he is too gloomy for me.  My family would love it very much if I married him and would pester me about it. So, I moved.  I must mediate for a few minutes.

02-27-17_4-47-36 PM

Vladislaus Straud and I. We dated for awhile. He’s too stuffy and broody for me.

1a

Family portraits: dad, mom and I(yellow dress)

1b

I’m more into painting so bought an easel instead of a bookcase. Oops. I have to go to the library to continue my vampire lore studies. You’re welcome to follow.

1c

Well, Hello, Mr. Librarian! …maybe I’ll talk to him. His name is Genji Yamaguchi. He told me that he loves grilled cheese, parties and reading. Oh, he’s also human. Maybe, I’ll ask him over.

2

He said that he would come over after work and as you can see, he showed up.

4

Stayed tuned for Chapter 2

Gameplay Notes:

  • I made her before creating/decorating her house. I did not plan on her looking like the vampire in the portraits.
  • She went swimming before Genji came over.  I do not know why she had no clothes on.
  • The title comes from me, ha ha. No really, I’m playing her by completing her whims, wishes and her free will. Her LTW is the painting wish but she has not had any wishes for painting.

Happy Simming!

Random Photos (#3, I think)

Hello! I found these photos while I was cleaning up my Sims 4 folders. Hope you enjoy! Tweet, Tweet says the bird. I remember taking this photo–it took forever! The birds kept flitting around so I had a hard time pausing gameplay.

10-01-16_1-54-05 PM.png

Have you ever wondered where  the three bears where while Goldilocks was in their house? Well, now you know.

10-02-16_3-18-19-pm

I watched a trailer for a new movie Invasion of the Vendors. I think I’ll watch it when it comes out on Netflix.

11-29-16_10-00-47 PM.png

Poor guy, he looks so tired.

12-08-16_12-13-07 AM.png

The ad said that this apartment needed TLC but I didn’t except birds to be flying around inside.

12-11-16_11-44-17 PM.png

As I look at these photos, I wonder if I’ve used them in other posts before. Since, these photos were in the draft folder, I’m hoping that I haven’t used them. The draft said that they were saved 14 days ago. Anyway, I’m working on building another house and should be done soon. I, also, started a new family. I’m going to play and post this family for more at least 2 generations. I’m still fighting chemo fog so…..Wish me luck!

Thanks for reading and Happy Simming!

Tamoxifen and a Vampire’s House

Tamoxifen

I hate this medication. Why? It has ruined my life. In July 2016, I started it and stopped it a couple of times because it made me severely depressed. Also, my oncologist did not give me any indication of my chances of getting cancer again if I didn’t take Tamoxifen. I re-started on 11/21/2016 because on that day my oncologist told me that I had a 50% chance of getting breast cancer again if I didn’t take it.  I have asked about different options but I was told that because of my age this was the only medication.

Side effects I have from Tamoxifen:

joint pain, general pain, increased insomnia, increased memory problems, confusion, unsteady, vertigo, lack of interest in things (including life), increased hot flashes, more intense hot flashes, red eyes (looks like I’m high all the time), malaise, poor appetite and increased neuropathy pain. I think I have more but my mind is foggy right now.

Medications I’m taking:

  • Effexor 37.5mg in the morning and 75mg at night – does not help with my side effects
  • Neurontin 600mg twice a day – still have neuropathy pain
  • Ambien 10mg at night – still have insomnia
  • Tamoxifen 20mg at night (horrible side effects)

So, I stopped taking Tamoxifen. I can’t handle the side effects. I’ve been off this medication for a week now and have actually had interest in playing video games. I built a modern house for my vampire. The inside has more of a Victorian/vampire flare. I have put it on the Sims 4 gallery. It took me several hours but I did it! Even though, my interest in playing Sims has returned, I still feel really bad and fatigued. Thanks for reading and thanks for all the support!
