Luca (34 years), Nadia (33 years), Kai (13 years), Mavis (6 years), Thea (2 years), Clio (2 years)

The last few years had brought a great deal of chaos to the Browning household. Nadia’s bookstore would celebrate its fourth anniversary in May, and it finally seemed to be making a steady income. They weren’t going to retire like a Rockfeller this lifetime, but it was enough.

Kai had started working part-time, mostly the weekends. His Mom didn’t mind if his friends stopped by as long as they weren’t rowdy. Books were a shared passion for Kai and his Mom, and he didn’t mind helping out; it didn’t hurt that it gave him an income to spend on more books.

Notes: Exactly two years ago on this day, I posted my Round 10 summary… I have finally finished the eternal round 11. As I mentioned previously, the Browning family got skipped, but I’m just bumping them to the top of this round.

Caitlyn has breakups in the last two rounds, hopefully she finds someone to stick this upcoming round.

Thank you to everyone who has commented, liked, and read my posts here and on tumblr, you keep me encouraged to keep posting and also playing, just like many of your own hoods and photos have done the same. Long live TS2!

Here’s to hoping that this next round doesn’t take a lifetime.

january birthdays 2030

The youngest of the Krouse family turns one this January. Otto is rather shy and serious just like his Dad. Thankfully he’s pretty happy to entertain himself, which makes it easier for Lorelei and Marshal to get dinner on the table.

Penelope talks with classmates on the computer after school, while Otto eats toys more than playing with them.

Meg Schehl (30 years), Jaron Castellanetta (28 years)

Meg was turning thirty this month, and she took some time to reflect on her twenties. She’d spent the earlier part utterly lonely then obsessed with Oliver, thinking they’d get married. In the end, he called it off and while she had been sad, she’d realized that she’d loved his family more than him. His Grandparents were amazing, it made Meg sad that she never really knew her own.

Then Jaron came into the scene, he loved macabre, her brother liked him. Even Isaac did, and he didn’t really fit into the family. Jaron did though, and when he finally came into her life, she was focused on her screenwriting and photography business, even directing a play she’d written.

Turning thirty though, that seemed to change something. Maybe it was biological, like internally, her body was pushing for her to get a move on. It sounded silly, but it was really the only thing she could peg it on.

They decided to escape their everyday life, and head up to the Cascade Mountains mid-week. Everything was empty, which felt similar to the Shining, but also wholly romantic.

Kenzie Goss (66 years), Tyler (64 years)

After raising children for about forty-six years, it was time for Kenzie and Tyler to downsize their home. Dean was a junior at EU, and it didn’t sound like he’d be needing his old bedroom after graduation. He didn’t know exactly what he was going to do, but he had options, and so they sold their home.

december 2029

Paloma is six months pregnant with the twins, and already feels grotesquely huge. She struggles just getting out of bed with all the weight she’s carrying in the front.

Each morning, Adam comes out of the bathroom, as she’s preparing to go in. He gives the twins a good morning talk, tells them to stay put, and that they have to listen, because he is their Dad.
