Smiths Part Seven: Just a Quick Update

I haven't played them for a while. Still nothing much has happened. 

Eddie and Elijah having a conversation. I thought I had captured the speech bubbles but apparently not. I think they were discussing grilled cheese here.

More talking. Emily doing the dishes in the back, just like a good, Godly young girl should.

Elijah wants to be, erm, athletic/a bodybuilder. He's rather skinny, so he needs a bit of exercise to build some muscles. (You can't wear caps backwards a la old-style Ben Seewald, sadly).

Eliza entered a mean phase, so she decided to yell at her mom for no reason. Of course, Nicole tells her off. 

(That orange book is what kids' homework looks like. It's not any of the Smith kids' work, it's actually from when one of the neighbour kids paid a visit, started doing homework, and then left it there. I can't move it).

The family's sleeping patterns are somewhat skewed. Edward wants to have a great garden. This was in the early hours of the morning, because why not?

Cleaning the shower seemed to mostly consist of spraying the dirt with cleaning fluid, no actual sponging involved. And yet the whole shower was miraculously clean!!

Nicole mastered her cooking skill a while ago. This results in fancy moves. Most of which aren't exactly practical. If you're making fruit salad, surely the last thing you want to do is toss the bowl in the air...???

It can be dull stuck at home all alone. Sims love to mold clay.

The eldest twins going for a jog. Emily (blue) was hacked off because she'd tried to help a classmate, but he wasn't very grateful. Eliza was jogging because it's good for her, and for her emotional control.

Yet another Smith kid succumbs to the Bear phase. This time it's Elliot.

Emily decides to Troll Teh Forums. "HAHAHAHA I AM MORE GODLY THAN YOUUUUU LOSERRRRRRRSSSSS!!" Nicole got wind of this and admonished her. "Look, you can't reveal our family life to others, we must maintain normality".

"Elijah, honey, there is a time and a place for you to take a selfie, and now is not it."

5ac53267e79f7_04-04-18_7-56-04PM.thumb.png.2eb75193fa7847df1a7df780fed6fa2a.png

Objects tend to break fairly easily in Sims 4, and luckily Edward is a real Manly Man (TM) and gets to work repairing the toilet.

"GOD'S CREE---AY---SHUNNNN IS SOOOOOO BEEE----YOOO---TI----FULLLLLLL!"

5ac533e3c8da3_04-04-18_8-22-25PM.thumb.png.3a13de6f408eb0d56b2ff154c4953867.png

Grilling shish kebabs to stick in the fridge for the family to have later.

SOTDRT doesn't exactly apply in Sims 4, but the dining room still tends to be the centre of family life. Emily and Elijah doing homework. Evelyn eating a shish kebab. Elliot looking incongruous in his Purple Grape Bear outfit. And... SHOCK... Nicole doing some work. This fundie mom isn't as lazy as some others... *cough cough*

      For baby showers (which I no longer have to worry about), I always gave the same gift...diapers and wipes. For "new baby" gifts I usually give a "pamper mom" basket. Everybody buys a shit ton of stuff for the baby and sorta leaves mom out of it. 

      The next wedding I'll have to buy something for is my daughter's...probably just a gift card worth some decent coin. They close on their new house in 26 days and the wedding will be sometime later this year. Something about the house and her last semester of school...I just need to mention...this was the child who ended up in prison for doing some really stupid illegal shit. She's clean and sober and has been for quite a while, has 3 associates degrees, is finishing a bachelor's in Computer Science and is debating grad school...I'm just a wee bit proud of her. 

      I don't know her and I'm more than a wee bit proud too, what an amazing achievement!

      I'm the eldest child and I've sort of adopted the maternal role since my mum died. One of the youngest had mental health issues, disappeared for a while, was emotionally abusive for a long time. She has turned everything around, she has a job, she's married, she's pregnant, she has her own home and she worked through her demons. I am more proud of her than anything I've ever achieved myself.

      ZZ Anderson is not a fan of Lori's (from ZZ's public facebook):

      Are They All Yours? I'm not interested in anything she has to say, nor do I read her blog. She believes in sinless perfection. She has entire blog posts dedicated to Pearl's Roman series detailing why she agrees with it.

      Although the salad photo seemed weird to me, I have to cut her some slack. People do strange things when their loved ones are dying. Lori sounds like she gets pleasure from making a salad for her mom. I"m sure it provides some comfort for her to do so. Without question, though, Lori has an abnormal, bizarre relationship with food.

      Lori's post just feels so...I don't know...mocking, cruel, ugly.  She thinks it's all a beautiful journey because she is a "christian."  My in-laws were/are faithful conservative Christians.  In fact, my father-in-law is always telling his doctors "I'm scheduled to preach Sunday; I gotta go home," and it was true. He was always preaching or teaching a Bible class.  

      Christians get to be sad.  Christians get to grieve and be overhelmed.  Christians get to miss their loved ones regardless of their certainty of salvation.  

      This. I wonder how many of her fans are feeling inadequate after reading that.  I don't want to judge Lori because I don't know her personally, but I do want anyone reading this who feels inadequate to know that you aren't faulty and less of a Christian.  

      I wasn't there to say goodbye to any of my grandparents but I treasure my last memories with them. Both of my grandmothers liked food and showed their love with food.  My maternal grandmother passed 9 years ago and my parents cared for her that last year.  Both my mom and dad didn't get to say goodbye to their fathers because they passed before they could hop on a plane and fly out to where they lived.  Both had a much harder time with that loss than with the loss of their mothers for that reason. My mother was there, holding her hand, when her mother passed.  My maternal grandmother loved chocolate ice cream and requested it every day until she died, and why not? She should enjoy her life until the very end!!!   My grandmother wrote wonderful letters that I still treasure. I received her last one, with a birthday card for my 19th birthday, a few days after she died.   I had been looking forward to seeing her in December that year but she died in August.  I'm glad my mother, her baby, got to be there to say goodbye.

      I think Hannie looks like Joy, who looks like Jana... and apparently Jed. First time I've seen that resemblance!

      I don’t understand the whole focus on submission. I can’t wrap my brain around it. DH and I both make decisions as needed- I don’t wait for him and I surely don’t harass the heck out of him, and vice versa. 

      I don’t tell him what to do, he doesn’t tell me what to do. 

      to ask permission for a girls night or something is weird. Just like I would be weirded out if he asked permission to do something. 

      We don’t have chaos and disorder in our home. No one is fighting for control. We do things to help the other and we do nice things for each other- because we love each other.

       

      From the conversation with Ken on 2.0 (and via pm), I've come to the conclusion that a wife taking a subordinate position in marriage and doing everything her husband wants is at the heart of their doctrine.  Women have "needs" while men have needs that they can expect to have met by their wives.  They take the "woman was made for man" verse very seriously, without looking into what that might mean.  She was made for me, she must submit to me, otherwise she's not in the will of God.

      Like you, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around what submission means.  I only tell my husband that he has to do x, y or z if it's something that he has to do and seems to be forgetting to do.  I guess I'd be labeled unsubmissive and controlling for trying to keep us out of disaster zone. 

      Asking permission is for children, not adults.  We will ask each other if it's ok to do something or another out of consideration, not obedience or something like that. 

      Chaos reigns in our home, but not because of control issues. We're chaotic!  Like you, we are together because we love each other. It's a journey that has its ups and downs, but I'd rather live like this than play the "submission game".
