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.

Round 11 ROS
1. Routine doctor visit, something shows up, roll to see if you survive.
2. Packing on the pounds, go down in your fitness level.
3. Distant relative will give you $5200.
4. Demoted: Sim loses one job level, or if self-employed, one business level. Fired if at the lowest level already.
5. Friends with Benefits-Sim and their closest friend will have a one night stand.
6. Food Poisoning: Sim gets food poisoning.

Notes: I will say that I failed a bit with my ROS’ last round, I forgot about a few of them. Oops. Here’s hoping I do better this time around. I’ll roll on the routine doctor visit when I get to that household, so I don’t know the outcome of that yet, hoping that it’s not bad news. Probably the most curious about the friends with benefits, because it could be a fun twist, and a bit of drama.

Here’s hoping there are no unexpected deaths, as I have a death a year for the next four years in the game. Kind of sad about a few of them.

Thanks to all that read and those that comment, your notes always bring a smile to my face, and mean a lot to me!

On to the next round! 😀

Round 10 ROS

    1. Mother Visit: Your mother is visiting you for a 9 months
    2. Tornado! House is demolished. Sim must move out with family immediately. Bulldoze lot in ‘Hood mode. Each resident may save 4 items in Inventory. Add $7000 for insurance settlement.
    3. Ouch! You’ve been in a car accident! Lose 5 body points and 2 active points. Miss work for 2 days, & do physical therapy.
    4. Family Picnic: Go on a picnic to the park with your family, enjoy nature without electronic distraction.
    5. Can’t catch a break. It’s been a terrible month. Fulfill 2 fears.
    6. Bar fight! What a night — too bad you don’t really remember it. You pick a fight in a bar, then have to pay a $600 fine in damages. If you win the fight, gain a body skill. Lose and lose a body skill.

    Notes: I am quite excited about the Mother visiting, it is sure to be a blast to play, and is really great timing for these particular sims. The tornado is fine, while I built the current house, I have never been overly fond of it, most of it isn’t even decorated nicely.

    For the Car Accident, I will roll more on this when I get to the sim just like I did when Bekah rolled it previously, I’ll roll to see if they are alone, and roll more damages for the character and those affected (whether it was a solo accident or a two-car pile up etc.)

    Two fears could be bad… this person has many people in their life, hopefully they aren’t worried about them dying. Bar fight is actually pretty nicely placed too, looking forward to it.

    Thank you everyone for reading this blog, commenting, and being part of this neighborhood of mine! I really appreciate each and everyone of you; I cannot believe that I am now beginning round 10! ❤

Notes: The White wedding was very serendipitous, excited for another wedding! Really excited for some of that teen crowd to join the college kids, seven of them are juniors right now, so very soon! No planned deaths for this round, so hopefully everyone can manage to come out alive. Round 10 will begin a wave of deaths though unfortunately, will lose 6 sims in the span of 4 years, so enjoy the quiet. I’m pretty excited about the Adult Education too! I don’t know that they will change careers, but maybe go to learn more about their chosen profession.

Thank you to everyone that has read and those that take time to comment, means the world to me! Can’t believe we are about to embark on round 9! This June will be 5 years of blogging Millwood, and that is all thanks to you guys for encouragement and inspiration over the years. So thank you to each and everyone of you!

Thank you EVERYONE for taking the time to read my little blog, and leaving comments! I love sharing these pieces with you, and in return, having the chance to read about your sims. It’s such a fun community! Mid-June will be my two year anniversary of running this blog, I wish I could do time faster here, in nearly 2 real life years we have done eight years in Millwood. I will likely forget about the anniversary when it rolls around, we will be vacationing at the capital, squee! But I want to at least acknowledge that it will be nearly 2 years!

Thank you again everyone!
