Edens Year 17: Adam lies, Elsie thrives

neurogirl

583 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!)

      My family tradition seems to be being pregnant at your wedding - at least, on my mom's side.

      It's interesting to see the family size get smaller! The Duggars are the opposite...

      @baldricks_turnipthought I was the only one up. "An anxious and closed off person," for describing Jana. I've been thinking the same thing for years! If she really sincerely wants to be married...I hope it happens before her youngest sisters become old enough for courtship. Those girls are like her children. We already have Justin, who in my opinion looks like he's in 8th grade. Watching siblings you've helped raise get married has got to be horribly tough. Jana can smile all she wants, I'm not buying it. I'm glad she has hobbies and other distractions to keep her busy.

      I also wonder if she's not really honest with herself about what she really wants, or self-aware enough. Like she starts 'getting to know' someone but doesn't find herself getting all gooey over him like she observed with her courting sisters, so she decides he just isn't the one/she's being picky/he's not the one God has planned for her, but maybe no one would make her feel that way?

      (Standard disclaimer that I'm just armchair analysing someone from TV)

      The reason liquor stores are considered essential businesses during emergencies is so that the healthcare system isn’t overwhelmed by active alcoholics forced into a sudden detox.

      (My guess is that everyone here knows this, but I have had to explain it to people who were better educated and more intellectually curious than that preacher, so just in case?)
