Edens Year 14: Genesis' Nervous Breakdown

neurogirl

482 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!!

    • Lori sounds like Erika Shupe with her purpose for everything. God gave men beards to keep their faces warm. So why does Ken shave off something that God gave him for a reason.

      Call me cynical, but I have to wonder if being active military would be on the minus column for potential suitors of the Phillips daughters, because it's real life and not role play. 

      I'm not sure wether the Phillips can afford to be picky about suitors anymore. Sure, they'll want someone with the more or less same believes, but beyond that Beall is probably glad when there is one less eater on her bill.

      As a daily wearer of blue eyeshadow (and blue mascara, liner and lipstick) I say F trends, wear whatever makeup, clothes, hair, etc. makes YOU feel good about yourself. 

       

      Disclaimer: if being On Trend is what makes you feel good, rock every trend you can find.

       

      Secondary disclaimer: I also have blue hair, so I’m very defensive about color-related grooming and this isn’t directed at any one poster 💙

      I am starting to question Dericks intentions for marring Jilly more. He seems to be saying that he “settled” for her.

      OK, I found it! At 1:21:07 minutes, you will find JB & Michelle giving their talk. If you want to see David Waller have his turn alone, it's on their blog but this one of only JB & Michelle is not on there:

      JB begins by shading his dad and saying because his dad didn't have spiritual focus, they had a lot of problems in the family and financial hardship.
