Having Julia for a roommate has been great, we’ve been close friends since grade school. We don’t mind doing mundane things together ether, like meeting up on Thursday after work, and getting groceries together. Lainey was a bit of a dictator over groceries that I mostly just paid her and picked up my own stuff after work. It’s actually a decent time with Julia though.

narrated by: Leah

I’ve spent my entire marriage just going along with the popular vote, which meant that I lived with my inlaws for my entire adult life, and raised all of my children under their strong presence and vocal opinions. Until we sold the cabin a few years back, I had at least a bedroom that was decorated to my taste.

After her passing, it became abundantly clear to Grant that we needed to move. It was his childhood home, and he works at his family business; he has never had to say goodbye to anything or anyone. The move was especially hard for him and Merrill.

Miner Hall was updated over the summer, now our second floor has a lounge area and finally we have some vending machines. Mom doesn’t approve of garbage food or the high prices, but sometimes a college student needs a late-night snack.

I’m also a fan of the new arcade games. The main floor has pinball, but I’ve never been a master pinball player. I feel that I at least get my coin worth when I play these newer games instead.

I graduated med school last June, and have a fancy MD tacked at the end of my name, but I still have four more years left of residency to be a surgeon. Neil is going to be a General Practitioner, and already has more responsibilities and trust than I do, which is perturbing. I understand that in the end, I will be light years ahead of him, but being treated like I’m ignorant because my residency is longer is asinine.

december birthdays 2027-2028

december 2027

Meme and Daniel Blackshire happily announce the arrival of their son, Jagger Blackshire. The new parents are settling in nicely, and enjoying snuggling with their newborn as the winter weather settles in.

The Millett family sadly says goodbye to matriarch, Norma, who passed away in her sleep after a terminal illness. She was seventy four, and left behind her husband, son and his wife Leah, and three grandchildren, and one great grandson.

They had all been able to gather one more family portrait before her passing, as they celebrated Christmas early this year.


Notes: Thea and Clio Browning should have been included in this post, but I wanted to do a birthday party for them in an upcoming post, so I’ll have their birthday photos in the spring addition. They’re February babies anyway, so a March announcement isn’t too tardy.

Sadly it was time for Norma to pass. I’m starting a new round shortly, and will try to schedule deaths in better with family updates. I sort of forgot that her time was coming, and only briefly mentioned it in the London update.

Meme and Daniel are both really sweet parents, and the baby seems to take after Daniel which is a plus, the Popper family has strong genetics!

Thanks for reading!

narrated by: Simon

It still seems weird to have my sisters not living at home anymore, I had always expected Julia to move back home after graduation. I guess she was serious about Mom and Dad raising Nolan, and no one intends to tell him differently about his parentage. Mom said maybe when he’s in high school, but he could be told by a classmate any day. Seems like a horrible decision to me.

narrated by: Hadley

My sister moved in with me this past month, we shared a room our entire lives until university, so it isn’t that much of an adjustment, except that I live in a one bedroom student rental. It’s not exactly allowed, since my unit is for Med students. It barely matters as I’m rarely home, so she just steals my bed on those nights.
