Round 14 ROS:
1. Mini Mid-life crisis! Change your secondary aspiration, roll to see what it is.
2. Uh-Oh! Your family pet is in the family way, have puppies or kittens with household or neighborhood pets.
3. Grumpy Day! Use only negative interactions.
4. BFF doesn’t always mean forever after all, fight with best friend.
5. Slackin’:Sim skips class for 3 days and cannot do any studying or classwork.

Round 14 Medical ROS
1. SURGERY – Ear Tubes (aged 11 and under)

Notes: I actually really stink when it comes to tracking new relationships and break-ups. So I doubt that’s accurate.

I started this round November 2019… so just over a year to finish a round. For the immense amount of households I have, I believe this is the fastest I’ve completed a round. I’m discounting when I started, and I only had like 8 households.

The ROS has a good amount of possible negative outcomes. I think the only positive for sure is the puppies/kitten! I never breed my pets, so I’m actually excited to give that a go, or use the statue and cheat it. Regardless, it’ll be fun, because I have those cute puppy/kitty colored coats.

Thank you to everyone who has read, commented, and liked my posts over the years; I appreciate every single one of you!

Round 13 ROS:
1. Horse Face + 3 drinks = Hottie: Order 3 drinks at the bar, then scan room, ACR woohoo with whoever accepts, starting with lowest attraction score.
2. BBQ party
3. String of Burglaries (3)
4. Big Holiday Party, invite family.
5. Wrongly Jailed
6. Florida sure sounds nice, check it out and see if you want to stay.

Notes: Yay me, I finished this round 5 months faster than my previous round. I’ve been remiss to get this thrown up as it has been prepared for more than a month. I’m looking forward to starting a new round! Lucky 13!

I’m okay with a sim moving to “Florida” as my population is pretty high, especially since I have a nearly equal population of pnpcs. They’ll likely end up in my desert hood though, as I don’t have a Florida in my game. I’m looking forward to this upcoming round, it always feels good to start a new one.

Thanks to everyone for commenting and liking; it’s fun to have people to share in this wonderful pastime of ours!

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! ❤
