Hiatus

I am taking a break.

After much debate and some soul searching I need to back off the site and all that goes with it.

I was using The Sims as an escape from things I really needed to deal with but wanted to ignore instead.  I got too involved with the site and took on too much so that I didn’t have to work through some things.

I am leaving for a month.  I need to clear my head, get my shit together, and come back with a clear mind.  I will not be playing the game, I will not be updating my legacy, I will not be going into chats, and I will not be writing any articles.

I will however answer your technical questions about the sims, wordpress, and other various issues.  I will also stay up-to-date on the legacy blogs that I currently follow.

The legacy deadline has been extended until May 12th.  I have that responsibility and I will award the prizes at the deadline.  I just need to get through my final exams before I can focus on that.

In the meantime, if you need to reach me, please do so via email:
sweetpoyzin.sims3@gmail.com

You may also email me at that address if you would like access to my personal blog which I will be focusing my time on during my month away from TS3.com.

Thank you for your support and patience.  You are all wonderful friends.

Bloopers!

This past weekend was an awesome time for bloopers.  Enjoy!

Don’t let the door hit you in the…face?

OMG I LUVZ THIS CREEPY THING!

Garret really respects Mollie’s opinion.

I really don’t know what was going on with his face all weekend.

This is just awesome because she really looks like she is doing battle with the shower.

Toddlers are gross.

Excuse me, Liv, but I am about to be taken over by a demon.  BRB!

This is the wrong way to upgrade a toilet.

Yep.  Definitely wrong.  Hammers probably shouldn’t even enter the toilet upgrade equation at all.

Thanks for reading!  Regular chapters will resume on Monday.  Have a great weekend!

Lottery!

LOTTERY!

It’s time for another reader appreciation lottery! I had so much fun the first time around that I just had to do it again!

First off, wow! You guys really worked at getting 1000 views! Whether you read the story or just merely clicked over to see what all the fuss was about, you guys ended up bombarding my blog with so many views last night that it was my best readership night so far.

I cannot thank you all enough for all the support you’ve shown the blog lately! Things have been hairy for me and it’s been stressful trying to keep myself together. Writing this story really brightens my day and knowing that so many others enjoy reading it makes the whole experience even better!

Now it’s my turn to thank you guys!

It’s always fun to win something and it makes me happy when you guys are happy. So let’s get this lottery going! Happiness and Squee for everyone!

The Important Goodies:
The lottery and contest will close at 7pm CST on Sunday, May 5, 2013.

Winners will be informed of their status no later that one hour after the winning draw. All winners MUST disclose what items they want from their wishlist within ONE WEEK of announcement. If any of the winners fail to claim their prizes by MAY 12, 2013 SweetPoyzin will choose items from the wishlist for the winner.

I will do my best to keep the nominations list current. I may only get around to updating it once or twice a day. Bear with me and don’t panic! I won’t forget anyone!

TAKE ME TO THE LOTTERY AND CONTEST!

You heard it correctly, folks.  I will be giving away 1000 simpoints in prizes…

There will also be and extra special prize of 500 points to any person who can get a screenshot of the milestone!  First person to email the shot to SweetPoyzin.Sims3@gmail.com wins the prize!

Update!

Garrett is confused by all the posts this weekend!  What is going on?!

Well, there was an incredibly weird glitch in my game.  I booted up the save today and Mollie and Garrett were somehow reverted back to romantic interests and the twins were 1 day from toddlerdom.  So, yeah.  I am basically uploading as many of the images I can from the time I still have with the twins because let’s face it, I don’t want to add more time onto the baby stage just for legacy purposes.  Sorry, I love you, dear readers, but not enough to replay the baby stage with twins.  I’m sure you understand.

Anyway the twins just aged into toddlers today and they are the more ridiculously cute toddler twins I’ve ever had born in-game.  Like…whoa.  Expect mucho posts involving toddler twins.  Seriously.

Thanks to those who read, follow, and comment on the blog!  To show my appreciation, I will be hosting another lottery when I reach 1000 views.  It will be my 1000 views for 1000 Simpoints lottery!  Whooo!  Get excited, people.  It’s gonna be big.

Update!

The lottery is officially closed!

And the winners are….

First Place (500sp): ErinAwesome101
Second Place (250sp): TearsDropFast
Third Place(250sp): Dayshatw
Hooray and congrats to the winners!  In the event that they do not claim their prize I will re-roll for a new winner in that slot.
Thank you to everyone who participated.  I had such a great time hosting and I hope you had fun playing!  I am thinking about hosting a new lottery every month!  I hope to see you all there next time around!
Also, I am thinking that once we come up on Chapter 40 of the legacy things will shift to the next generation.  I am still toying with this idea.  Either way, I have posts ready all week.  Get ready for some big changes to the Lox family legacy.  Things are about to get crazy up in here!
Have a wonderful week my friends and I will see you next weekend!

Lottery!

Alright, guys…IT’S HERE!

I really wanted to thank you guys for reading Eternally Yours.  I know it’s been a tough couple of months.  Things got a little crazy up in here and the story was not as good as it could have been.

YOU GUYS READ IT ANYWAY!

I really appreciate that.  You guys are amazing and you helped get me through the crazy days.  Now it’s my turn to thank you guys and hopefully brighten your day!

There are 1000sp up for grabs in SweetPoyzin’s Eternally Yours Reader Appreciation Lottery!  Visit the post on The Officials and add your nominations there!

Since you are loyal readers and followers of the blog, you get to nominate yourself and 2 other people (for a total of three names)!

The lottery closes at 7pm CST on Saturday, April 13, 2013.

Regular posts will resume tomorrow.  Just wait until you see what kind of trouble Mollie is getting herself into at University!

University Life Lottery!

Hey there!  SweetPoyzin dropping in to invite you all to a fun party that I am SUPER excited is happening!

If you have not ordered University Life yet, might I suggest trying to win it?

I work for a great Sim website/blog/forum called Simomania that is giving away a copy of University Life on March 7th! All you have to do is head over to Simomania.com! Just become a member (if you have not already) and answer two simple questions about the game:

1. What are the three social groups?
2. Which one would you join and why?

Even if you don’t win the lottery, there are always plenty of contests happening, great games to play, and lots of people to hangout with in the live chat. What have you got to lose?

Seriously…come to the dark side.  We have free computer games.
