Edens Year 15: Cracks in the Foundation?

neurogirl

430 views

Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! It's been the longest time away because I moved apartments and got two new headships (husband and PUPPERS, a 10 lb white fluff named Princess Peach). Anyways, let's recap:

Eva Johnson married Adam Eden when they were both 19 (in Jan of 2010). They immediately moved into a 3-bed, 2-bath home in the suburbs and started procreating for the Lord. Due to various types of expansions they now have 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 11 children:

Genesis (g) 10/10 Honeymoon Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Exodus (b) 9/11

Leviticus (b) 11/12

Numbers (g) 2/14

Deuteronomy (g) 5/15

Joshua (b) 6/16

Judges (b) 10/17

Ruth (g) 1/19

Samuel (b) 3/20

Kings (b) 6/21

Chronicles (g) 10/31/22

plus their newest precious blessing on the way in 2024! That's a grand total of 11, and Eva delivered every one of them. *smile* (For the record, that's an average of 14 months between babies - not quite Courtney Rogers fast, but definitely Michelle Duggar fast)

2024 started off happily, as #12 Ezra was born in Feb! Welcome to the world, Ezra! We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you!

Not that Eva or Adam would be around to actually see what the Lord has in store. While Genesis and Exodus held down the fort, Eva and Adam got right to trying for lucky #13.

And trying...

But God was just not blessing them as quickly this time. 

In the meantime, Samuel (#9) turned 4 years-old! A big birthday for little Edens, marking the transition from toddler to child, and moving out of the nursery into the girls or boys dorm.

Sadly, as Sam is kid #9, no one remembered to take a big-kid picture of him :( 

There were now too many kids to keep everyone eating and sleeping on the same schedule. The kids stayed up all hours unsupervised, made messes, and talked back.

Ooh! In the above picture I believe that's Samuel in orange being disciplined. Maybe. Also notice the unkempt garden. Ain't nobody got time for weeding anymore.

Though the kids (and plants) were staying up past midnight, throwing fits, and/or being forgotten, Eva did find time to finish and publish her latest work, "Queen of her Castle- How to train up daughters with servant hearts so that Mama can rest". Good for her!

The training is really working on Deuteronomy. Notice how she cleans up dinner as the menfolk talk without her. How Jesus loves you, Deuteronomy!

Meanwhile, across town, Eva's sister Elsie (who lived with the family to help raise the kids until she married a lunatic in 2018 and divorced in 2021 with sole custody of their son Romano and now works as a caterer, wears pants sometimes, and uses the internet) invites the kids over in small groups to fill her empty house. Independent, loner Numbers (#4) is so delighted to be asked over that she even takes Elsie's trash out.

Finally, near the end of the year, Eva receives good news. After the largest gap ever, Blessing #13 is on its way! Praise be!

But is she slowing down for good? Will Adam and Eva even manage to reach 19 kids? Maybe even that elusive 20th missed by both the Duggars and Bateseseses? Will the kids continue to descend into ragamuffin-ness? How many beds can they fit into the boys and girls dorms? What are the young and middle kids even up to? And whatever happened to Leviticus' preaching 'career'? We'll just have to stay tuned. 

For now, Edens out!

The Edens are back! Yay!

I haven’t actually updated with the Smiths (my Sims 4 family) for nearly six months. I really should play them again. I’ve been playing with my other non-fundie saves, plus the Sims 3 saves... so many save games...

@mango_fandango the Edens are all I play, because it’s such a mammoth game and I really do want to see how many kids they have and what the oldest in particular get up to. It’s daunting though!

      You should  eat tiny bites of unhealthy foods off a saucer and feel guilty about it. A 2000 calorie diet is bingeing, you need only 300.

      Flying Above the Scales

      God is doing something new for those who are coming to Him once again… His Spirit is pouring down and providing a breakthrough. Let us start with laying down the scales—get a beginning number, but just use the scales occasionally because the trend that we are measuring is the dependency on God. It is not about a number…it is about getting that internal control and Connection to God so that you are guided and are flying above the scales. When you get off the scales, you will let go of the tricks and gimmicks you have used to keep the scales down. When you let go of the number, you will let go of fasting and laxatives and all the other tricks as well as the depression and bummed-out feeling. Even if you have binged—maybe you have eaten 2,000 calories when you only needed 300 calories—focus on God, repentance and hunger and fullness…that is all you have to focus on. And by all means, stop the diets, and it will stop the panicky feeling inside and you will stop the binge. One source of panic is coming from man-made diet foods and the feeling that you are not going to get what you want when you want it…Start over, wait for hunger, close your eyes and think inside you, “What do I really want and need for good health and energy? What sounds good?” After all, we are ending the pain. Now remember the rules for the Zone of hunger and fullness…put the selected food on a saucer, take smaller bites, sip between bites and pray, pray, pray. Stay connected to the inside of you with no diversions.

      Actually, I like the sample profiles quite a bit, they use historical persons such as Martin Luther’s wife Katharina. Unfortuantely, she‘s the only one I recognized - maybe someone with more knowledge of American history can help out?

      Apart from Eliza Lucas they're more European history.

      That is Tom who had a daughter in his early twenties. Tom is not a RSO that I am aware of.
      The person mentioned about is not Tom. It's Papy Gary (the one I referred to as creepy grandpa)

      Apologies, I got confused!

      Every time she or anyone wishes that Asa could be here they are telling their daughter they wish she was not.

      Please tell my mother this!

      He said on his recent live chat that his daughter is 21, which would make her born in 1998. He also mentioned that the daughter was adopted and raised by his aunt. If he is 42, he would have been 21 in 1998... not in his 30’s. ( not justifying a 21 yo having sex with a 17 yo , just bringing clarity. I don’t think he’s a child molester)

      That is Tom who had a daughter in his early twenties. Tom is not a RSO that I am aware of.
