Edens Year 17: Adam lies, Elsie thrives

neurogirl

310 views

Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! SO much happened in Year 16/2025, that this year was naturally a bit slower - at least for the Edens. 

Adam and Eva have now turned 35, which means their Try For A Baby % success rate has gone down to 50% per day (4 months Sim Time) vs the former 70%. However, Adam and Eva can't keep their hands off each other

so naturally Blessing #15 (!!!!!!!1!!!1!!) was on its way soon enough (and how)! 

Which was really a shame, as things at the Edens were falling apart. Sure, Genesis was still diligent about her musical studies and toddler care, and the eldest two boys were learning home repair and now mowing lawns for extra cash, but the younger kids were out of control. Staying up all hours, making messes all over the place, and even just wandering off. 

Below, see Ruth just by herself, sad, in the middle of a forlorn park.

And Ruth wasn't the only one who wasn't Safe At Home. 

Oh Adam what have we here?

He decided he would also take himself to a park, and enjoy a hot dog with a short-skirt and makeup-wearing hussy.

Usually that much eyeliner is associated with Plexus shills and an RV enshrouded in a cloud of hairspray, but this time Adam found himself in a flirty conversation with a married woman. 

Too bad his daughter Ruth had to show up and ruin it all.

Adam went home, embarrassed, to enjoy his perfect, pure, Christ-like marriage. Let's see if he can stay on the straight and narrow from now on.

Other notable events include Chronicles, the fiesty 11th kid born on Halloween, aging into an outgoing and fiesty child. You go girl!

At the end of the year, the TWINS Esther and Nehemiah aged up as well. 745817012_01-27-19_5-10-27PM.thumb.png.1c00abce9f702f847249304c3d25c588.png

And just like that, the house is full of toddlers again.

Also, there is now officially no more room in either the boys or girls rooms for more beds, and the nursery is full up too. Ezra ages up in two months and there's another baby on the way, so who knows what the Edens will do! 

 

Across the neighborhood, the Johnsons are having a much more sedate time. Romano turned 5 and started Kindergarten at a private Christian school. He's so cute in his uniform!435976414_01-24-19_7-22-01PM.thumb.png.7b4966808f902792685793da1063e357.png

On the weekends and before school, Romano does his homework while Elsie practices her cooking and reads about mixology. She still feels uncomfortable with the idea of alcohol, but she has to be able to describe drink options for her catering clients, and so she studies diligently.

They have a very picturesque life now, but it's been quiet. A little too quiet. Elsie is home alone in the mornings after Romano has left for school and before her shift starts, so she and Romano got a kitty! Romano thought it was going to be hard to pick out just one cat. But then he met Nacho. Nacho, with a cheese name just like him! It was love at first whisker touch.

Elsie has started to consider putting herself out into the dating world again, but for now, she has a happy family and her big empty house is starting to be filled. Yay Elsie! We are all so happy for you!

Until next time, Edens out! (and Nacho, get off those counters!)

      In the funeral video Jill posted on Instagram where the whole family is singing on stage, you can see Jinger with a noticable bump. Looks like Baby Vuolo No 2 is on the way. People on tumblr are talking about it (I usually don't partake in pregnancy speculation/body scrutiny, but that's definitely a baby bump.)

      I'm tempted to fast and pray for more Satanic attacks.  Will any one join me?

      Oh I'm in. And more termites eating the dresser and keeping John awake.

      "I kid you not, even while he did pray, a woman to my mother gave her money that day!"

      That is possibly one of the most awkwardly constructed and incomprehensible sentences I think I have ever seen. Now I kind of wish John was translating the KJV books by himself - given how bad his expression in his native language is I could see him inadvertently encouraging people to worship Satan in a language he doesn't actually speak.

      Also I am nominating this poem for the Worst Poetry section in the Book of Heroic Failures update (hoping they do one). This is way worse than their current entries - adnittedly those entries were published. Hm...

      a godly women SHOULD teach women what to expect from their husband. 

      God, Lori’s “I only teach women” is such a ridiculous fig leaf. She commiserates with men about what to expect from their wives ALL THE TIME. And she actively teaches women to expect NOTHING, which is very different from simply refraining from teaching them what they should expect.

      I just don’t understand how someone can be disgusted and offended by mutual kindness and mutual pleasure. She just has to “correct” this woman for enjoying her lovely marriage.

      Does Lori really think women "put out" for their bosses?  It enrages me that she can't distinguish between a husband/wife relationship and an employer/employee relationship.

      Gross! I can’t tell if she means “put out” as in sex (which is its top and most obvious meaning) or if she’s using it metaphorically to mean prioritizing work stuff on the fly, like working late. Either way it’s bizarre.

      While of course an extreme devotion to work—like those cautionary tales of executives missing their kids’ baseball games and bedtimes—can indeed be sad and regrettable (like anything taken to an extreme) Lori applies this extreme to any kind of work at all (except her daughters’ and daughters-in-law’s work—and sexy bathing suits—which are somehow still holy *scratches head*).

      And somehow men working multiple jobs and never seeing their wives or children doesn’t harm their families. **confused**

      Could Abbie be trying to keep a lower public profile in case she chooses to start practicing nursing again? She may want to be more reserved about posting publicly if she thinks patients and or families may follow her on social media. 

      That said she signed up to be on a TV show so the horse is likely already out of the barn on that one. But in her career I could understand wanting to maintain some professional distance.

      is the same logic that lets Anna stand outside of hospitals yelling "I love you, mama" at anyone who looks like they might be considering an abortion.

      What the what now? I clearly missed that. When/where/what was this???
