Edens Year 14: Genesis' Nervous Breakdown

neurogirl

514 views

Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! It's been another long time away, as the Sims 4 Seasons update messed with my game (and also I got married!). But we're back! And it's starting to get crazy. 

First, let's have an update on Elsie! She actually had a great year and was promoted to caterer! Yay! Now she works 3pm-11pm which works SO much better than overnights for her single-mom life. Elsie continues to live a less-fundie lifestyle, and during one of Romano's naps, even googled herself and found her way to internet forums!!!!! See you on FJ, Elsie!

For the Edens proper, the first thing you should know is that due to the Sims 4 update messing with my mods Edens' pastor proclaiming bunk beds are of Say-un (no one can see what's going on in that top bunk!), the bedrooms were re-configured, with Elsie's old room becoming a toddler nursery.

The second thing you should (already) know is that the Edens can't keep their legs closed.

#12 is on its way! 

The Edens were very busy in year 14/2023. Eva's efforts were focused not on her children, but on writing "Queen of her Castle: How to train up daughters with servant hearts so that Mama can rest." Notice Genesis potty-training a little, Numbers doing laundry, and Deuteronomy practicing the violin as Eva ignores them all to write. (Also Ruth is dancing half-naked. You go Ruth!)

Well, sadly Ruth (#8) turned 4 years old and had to put on clothes and start the SOTDRT.  This inquisitive little cherub is now a budding art-lover growing her hair out for her daddy Nathan Bates Jesus.

The Edens had another big birthday later in the year. Goofy Exodus (#2) turned 12 which is the start of teenage years for our Edens! He has matured into a good and good-looking, if rather-boring, adolescent who loves children, and will surely take heart pieces in the future.

Lastly on the birthday train, baby Chronicles (#11), born on Halloween of the previous year, grew into a charming toddler full of absolute spirit. I cannot WAIT for this one to grow up, y'all!

Like seriously. 

What are the other kids up to? Leviticus (#3) holds unsuccessful youth groups in his continued attempts to be a little preacher,

Deuteronomy (#5) likes it when her daddy reads to her, and boy does he have a soft-spot for his cheerful and sweet fundie princess,

and all the kids love when Elsie comes to visit. (Notice bookworm Judges (#7) still reading). Especially Genesis.

As you may have guessed from the blog title, she's having a rough year. Being 13 is usually the pits, and Genesis is a 13 year-old sister-mom who cooks, cleans, and child trains, all while focusing on her violin training (actual passion) and (not really) keeping up with home-schooling. PLUS she's expected to keep sweet for all of this AND all of her "best friends" are her siblings. YIKES! The countenance is beginning to break.

Actually the countenance exploded, and Genesis had a legit meltdown.

 "I HATE THIS FAMILY! I just want to watch Harry Potter and go to the mall like a NORMAL PERSON!!"

"Now Genesis honey, what would Jesus say about your disposition right now? Are you J-O-Y-ing?"

While Genesis was out of commission reflecting on her life, Exodus stepped up, deigning to cook mac and cheese and reading to the littles.

This weird thing also happened when both Exodus and Elsie tried to teach Samuel how to stack blocks. Deuteronomy had no comment.

After giggling with Exodus watching something on a NOT flip phone of shame *gasp*

1875316771_08-12-18_9-10-14PM.thumb.png.fec4e329c3c2aacb217116ae7d7079d3.png

And remembering that people who watched Harry Potter were going to Hell, Genesis was back to her old self.

But...the tiniest cracks remain. Will they be enough to get Genesis out of fundie-land? We will all find out in several Sims years. Until next time, Edens out!

Congrats on your wedding!!

And I sniggered when I saw the Nathan Bates thing. That guy sounded like such a douche for saying that. Props to Tori for wearing her hair how she damn well wanted!!

      To me a "red shirt" is a Star Trek character who is killed <2 minutes into an episode.

      I remember when I realized Juliet was wearing a red shirt on LOST, and yes she was killed off.

      The cynic in me says it was to do with the timing of the show (didn’t she release the news just before the season started?) but jm2c’s reason is nicer.

      If are referring to Jessa then no  she announce in January just before the season end. Lauren and Jessa was due at the same time, but then Lauren miscarried and Jessa waited a little but more to announce

      My sisters and I were a surprise when we popped up on the ultrasound because there was no known history of multiple births on either side of the family, other than I think a great-aunt may have had a twin who was stillborn. Meanwhile, my husband’s dad and grandma are/were both fraternal twins, but that won’t affect whether or not I have twins (if I ever manage to get pregnant...) Only the fact that I’m a triplet will, I assume, affect my chances. My sisters and I are two identical, one fraternal.

      Thank goodness I was a career woman because it enabled me to escape my abusive marriage.  If I hadn't been earning a good paycheck on my own I would have been stuck in a miserable situation. So, Flicka, I am damn happy that I could take care of MYSELF when I hit one of those "deep pits in the road."  I am so tired of the judgmental crap.

      I want one of them to use the name Mara because it’s just pretty and then be informed that’s a Demon in Buddhist Lore as well as a Hindu Goddess of Death. I wonder if they would change it.

      I didn't know that. That's really cool! Mara was also the name of Luke Skywalker's wife before Disney bought the franchise.
