Update!

So I was really pumping out chapters there for a while.  They have yet to be published.  I was holding off on them a bit because I knew things were going to get a bit crazy for me and I wanted to savor the story.  I didn’t want to flood the blogosphere and then have nothing to post when I was feeling lonely.

What have I been up to these days, anyway?

  • Writing papers on Edgar Allan Poe’s “William Wilson” and Masaccio’s Trinity.
  • A Latin exam that threatened to break my soul.
  • On the same day as the Latin exam I also had a Renaissance Art History exam.  My professor got to pick 20 images out of the 743 that we learned and we had to know the artist, title, dates created, where it was and where it is now, and why it was important to the Renaissance.  Yes, I was concerned for my sanity on Wednesday.
  • At work I had yet another party to plan, set up, carry out, and clean up last night.  It was perfect and everyone loved it.
  • Today: more homework, paper revisions, and reading 22 chapters of Moby Dick.

Yes, my life is so exciting.  I am unsure about my playtime until this semester gets itself under control.

But there is good news.

Penny and Liv’s birthday post coming out today and I am excited about that.

Also, I am changing up the way I title the chapters.  Chapters will now that the number of the generation in front of the chapter title.  Old post titles will be changed as well.  You’ll see what I mean before too long.

Have a great day, 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!

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!

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!

It’s awesome update time!

I’ve pretty much got the house to myself this weekend and thanks to a blizzard I am also pretty much housebound.  So that means that I will be playing quite a lot of sims in between doing quite a lot of homework.  It’s going to be an exciting weekend.  Right.

For those of you who have checked out the Table of Contents, you may have noticed that Chapter 40 ends Generation One.  It is true.  On Saturday, the story of Liddy and Victor draws to a close and will pick up with that of Mollie and Garrett.  It’s bittersweet for me but I am ready to move on with the family.  You may have noticed the same tone in Liddy’s voice in the recent posts.  I am excited to carry on from here but trust me…Liddy and Victor are still going to have a major point in this story!

Also, I’ve started a forum for writers.  I know I will spend most of my time on there talking to myself but at least it will give me something to do!  Also if I start answering myself then I will be obviously crazy and everyone will know it too.  So please come and join me over there and help keep my insanity in check: http://writersanonymous.freeforums.org/index.php

Hmm…what else?  On Saturday I will be posting a behind the scenes for Eternally Yours.  Then you all can see just how crazy things have gotten in my save file.

Other than that I have nothing new or exciting going on.  Thanks for reading and following!  Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you on Saturday!

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!

Update!

Hey everyone!

Guess what!  Now there’s a Table of Contents for Eternally Yours!  It’s great for easier navigation of the story (because that silly little archive section get bogged down by my random updates).  Each link *should* open in a new window or tab for even easier browsing!  Yes, it is awesome and I am rather proud of it.

I also wanted to give you a head’s up and let everyone know that my lottery is STILL GOING ON!  Unforeseen circumstances (i.e. I forgot about a paper deadline on Monday) necessitated the need to move the deadline to tomorrow Sunday, April 14th at 7pm CST!

Get in on the action while you still have time!
Take me to SweetPoyzin’s Awesome Reader Lottery!

On a sadder note, my grandmother passed away on Thursday.  While I will always miss her I am greatly relieved that her suffering and pain is finally over.  I know she is in heaven wearing her beloved stilettos (she wore them until she was 85) and dancing the night away.

Update!

So…I was supposed to come back from break this week with some wonderful and amazing new stuff.

Except I’m back in the hospital.  They are doing a follow up procedure today that should take care of the issues.  Of course, that means more time off from the blog.  Sorry, my bad.

In lieu of a new post, please enjoy these bloopers.  Posting will resume soon.

Come back tomorrow for the Giveaway!

Lydia really gets into doing the laundry.

The chili was a little spicy…

Victor thinks so too…

Liddy’s new hobby.  I do not approve.

Meet the neighbors.  They are…different.

Yeah…that’s all I have to say on this one.

Way to photobomb that shot, Kia.  Thanks.  Glad you are having a good time.

Update!

Hello loyal followers!  I hope your weekend is treating you well!

I have good news and bad news.

The good news: Chapter 30 will go live TODAY and the story will be completely up-to-date!  I know, I can’t believe it either.

The bad news: Since it will be completely updated, posts will now be fewer and farther between.  I know, it makes me sad, too.

Also, I realized when I went to write more of the story of Mollie and Oliver’s teen years I had no photos.  And they were aged up already.  My bad again.

So, when I return with Chapter 31 we are just gonna start with Mollie as a YA at University and Oliver as a teen.  Cuz I effed up.  Sorry about that.  Still Gen 1 with Lydia and Victor and all that jazz.  I’m just got gonna mess with backups and replays and what not.  Fresh start.

Things got a little crazy in March.  I’ll try to stay on top of my schtuff now.  We’re cool.  It’s all good.

So here is the new game plan.  I only have time to play on weekends because those silly things called RENT and HUNGER oh and COLLEGE get in the way.  I’m not happy about it any more than you guys are but it’s true.  I am thinking that I will do posts on Saturday and Sundays for sure with more during the week if it is a particularly hardcore gaming weekend.

I also know right now that this will also change.  On Monday I am starting a new job that will take up almost my entire weekend.  I’m moving up to head technician at a much larger animal hospital.  I am very excited about this as it means more client interaction but also more control over the care of animals at the clinic.  It also means that I will spend my entire weekend working 9am-9pm both Saturday and Sunday as well as some hours during the week.  I know.  It’s awesomely terrible.  I am super excited though.

That’s where things are now.  So look for Chapter 30 at noon and then there will be several more posts today.  Let’s all get excited…

Sorry…that was the wrong kind of excited.

However, that reminds me.  The Suttons are returning!  They are totally going to become an important part of Eternally Yours!  So get excited about that, too.

That’s more appropriate excitement.

Well, folks.  I’m out.  I will see you all again on Wednesday for the giveaway!
