Grimsley Family, Picasso

three near strangers

(I’ve been having an issue where my photos aren’t showing, but only for some of my viewers, which has made it difficult for me to test. Tanja has been a huge support and help with testing my site when I request. Here’s hoping this update works proper, as I’ve tweaked a few more things in the last 24 hours plus a new theme which they said may have been a problem. *fingers crossed* and please do let me know if there are any issues.)

The girls graciously allowed me to move in temporarily while Bea finishes college; she has two years left so it gives me some time to get my feet under me.

I believe it was mostly to help pay for the apartment, but I don’t begrudge them in the least. They saved me from having to move back in with either of my terrible parents, and for that I’m truly grateful.

Births

january birthdays 2031

Corbin Gray is turning fifty this month, and he wants nothing more than to stay home. He’s been working a big personal-injury lawsuit, and he wants to unwind with his family, especially his granddaughter, Quinn.

He isn’t sure how much longer Quinn will be staying with them, as his daughter Riley has started being secretive again just like she was as a teenager. He doesn’t want to tell her that she’s an adult, free to live on her own, because he’s afraid she will do exactly that. But he is annoyed by her behavior nonetheless.

Since Marta quit after her demotion, Zoe-Gen had struggled to find employees. Nicole had interviewed Lulu Grimsley, and then the girl had the audacity to refuse the job offer. Hiring was a weary process, but even more pressing with Lily-Mae starting at EU in a month.

She had called Riley Gray to come in after seeing her application. Failing to get a fashion degree from EU was mildly alarming, but it wasn’t enough to say no. Bethany Louie had zero experience when hired, and she’d just been promoted to assistant.

Miriam’s birthday sneaks up on her, forty-seven years old. It baffles her, time has gone quickly, but strangely slow in the same breath. They’d talked about having a baby, but with this birthday, it seems foolish. She really is getting too old to start over.

She tries to escape her own head by taking the girls dress shopping. They’ve decided on a quiet ceremony at the park, afterall second marriages don’t usually warrant the same fanfare.

Shira is amped up, dresses excite her, but it isn’t the same story for Scarlett or Elodie.

Fall semester begins, and mostly Bea is thrilled to be there. She’s placed in the same dorm as her best friend, Willa, and is studying theater which is her ultimate passion. She’s not entirely impressed with her non-theater classes that are forced upon her nor the fact that her bedroom doesn’t have a window.

Births

june birthdays 2029

Vivienne and Cicely turn fifteen this month, and are spending the afternoon with their boyfriends. Dating is strictly forbidden until seventeen in the Russo-Traver household, all thanks to their big brother, Lewis getting a girl pregnant in high school.

Cicely had crushed on Alex ever since her Grandma Regina died. Recently they had shared their first kiss, once his girlfriend, Scarlett had left for college. They had broken up, so Cicely didn’t feel guilty. However, she just wasn’t interested in him anymore.

Births, Siew, Taxation

april birthdays 2029

Barbara Gray was turning 48; it wasn’t a milestone birthday by any means, but she still felt hurt that her children didn’t intend to do more than just text her a Happy Birthday before their morning classes.

She tried calling both of their cells, and neither answered. She was forced to resort to texting, something she rather detested. Her fingers were clumsy, and nowhere near as agile as her children’s fingers. A mid-morning pick-me-up at the Cafe near campus, that was all she wanted. It didn’t seem like a birthday worth celebrating if her own children were too occupied to even visit for a few minutes.
