I had to take some much needed time for myself as I had become overwhelmed with multiple circumstances in my life. I have not been into my sims game or shopped for any sims stuff in all this time. Just sort of regrouped. I have friends and family members in various stages of terminal illness. I have still been trying to get over my baby sisters suicide 2 years ago and I think I was just so overwhelmed with it all. I am feeling much better and I seem to have a handle on my issues and  even thought about you guys and my game yesterday. So I am back! I see I have 265 notifications to read. Will catch up on it all.

Hi Renee,

I moved your thread into the 'Say Hello Here' section so more people will see it.  I didn't want it to get lost in the general topics area.

Life sure gets hard, sometime. Doesn't it? I can see why you were overwhelmed. I am so happy to see that you are back with us.  We chat a lot.  So, this is a very good place.  Wow! 265 notifications to read.  WOW!!!

Lots happening, too.  tilly has a new renovation contest ready to start.  And, I believe anidup has a fall theme contest about ready to start as well. The Forum Chatterbox Award winners were poppy and Broomhilda for last month - both awards were exciting because both of these ladies are so nice. Oh, and Crissi has new fall siggies to check out.  They are wonderful!

Take your time.  Just know that we are all happy to see that you are back.

Dear Renee I can understand how real life can make our pleasures insignificant and the interest wane. You have had to cope with a lot, particularly regarding your sister, for which I am so sorry consol1

You will always receive support here, whether you need to talk or just get a hug.

It is great to see you back here, and I really do hope you have found the strength to enjoy something just for you in the land of fantasy. We are quite lucky to escape the realities of life with our Sims.

Welcome back Renee! I know real life can get in the way sometimes. I was away from my communities a lot last year with one thing after another. We're very glad to see you!  :Autumn_16:

Thanks to all of you for the kind words and support... I am feeling much better. In fact, I was all day on my game. I began anew with an older couple, I found a lovely cottage which I liked because it was small and cozy. For some crazy reason I enlarged all the rooms and now its a huge house. I may start over tomorrow. Really crazy!
I missed you guys and reading all that is going on in your lives. Please say a prayer for my niece and my friend. I hope so for a miracle... My niece is just fifty and a sweetheart.

Renee, I missed you! I'm so sorry to hear about your sister, it must have been devastating for you. But we are a family here, and we are all here for you.
I'm so happy you are back and enjoying playing your game again.
Welcome back sweetie. :Spring3

Life can be very unfair at times, I know that very well. I have found though that difficult times have made me a stronger person. I do hope things go better for you. Hug
