Wow!

As someone who only rarely makes a sim, and never plays one out... this is really sad, Anita!

Sad, but really, really interesting to see all the things that sims go through! <3

Suzanne, I allow full autonomy for this legacy. Only now and then do I intervene with the choices they make.... like when they want to drink the one glass water after the other, or when they stand around idly.

I have missed a number of interesting things they get up to, still amazes me the surprising things they get up to!

I have played the family over the weekend, and now have to get the pictures together and to narrate the events well.

I am neglecting my other duties though..... like to finish me creations and to upload them... LOL

I'm giggling, Anita...

...I think we often forget the point of the sims.

It's to actually play the game! LOL

However we play it :D

It took both J and Jolene a long time to come to terms with the passing of Antonia. Neither of them felt like doing
much and J felt the world weigh heavy on his shoulders. Even with all the shortcomings in their relationship, they
still had a good life together. He felt like he had done his part in life, and decided to retire.He would be able to
help Jolene with her homework more by being around, or so he thought. Because not long after he retired did Jolene
have her birthday, and turned into a young adult.



Jolene took up the task of taking care of her mother's garden. She would hate to see the garden, where her mother
spent so much of her time, go to waste. She felt close to her there and could reminisce about the times they spent
together, planning their days and how they were going to spend the money her mother made with the produce.

But, yes, she had to be honest, she also needed the money. She was still without a  job, and was not sure what the
future would bring. Her dad retired so they would definitely be in need of the money.



Jolene still nurtured the dream of becoming a world class singer and she tried to spend as much time practising as she
could. With her father not having much to do, he often accompanied her to San Myshuno. He cheered her on and tried
to support her as best he could, though Jolene had the firm idea that he only went with to eat as much of the free chips
from the bar, as he could.



Jolene's old school friend, Nobuya, made contact with her again, and then started asking her out. She accepted the
invites twice, only to be stood up by him both times. He did not even bother to offer her any excuse as to the reason he
did not show up. However, while she was waiting for Nobuya, she met a guy, Ethan Henry, and they started to chat.
They exchanged numbers and later that evening she sent him a happy text.

She was just a little surprised when she received an immediate response. He was inviting her to the restaurant to grab
a bite to eat. She accepted the invite, and travelled there on her own. Her father had the tendency of following her
around, and she surely did not want him shadowing her today.

Jolene could barely contain her shock when he arrived. He was wearing his boxer shorts and a long sleeve shirt. She could
swear he just got out of bed! It seemed to her that her bad luck regarding the choice of friends was still wreaking havoc
in her life. She felt totally overdressed with what she decided to wear.



They both ordered the chef's choice for the day, with a fizzy drink to go with it. When she realized that no one in the
restaurant was paying them or Ethan's choice of clothing any attention, did she relax and just enjoyed his company. They
were able to discuss so many different topics, and the dinner was over way too soon!



Jolene was thinking that this could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Ethen paid her a few compliments and she
felt so happy about being with him. She was already looking forward to their next visit, and she hoped that Ethan would call
on her again real soon.







That evening, while she and her father were spending time watching a television show, they had an unexpected visitor.
Jolene was not affected by what they saw, but J was scared senseless.  How on earth could this be happening, he thought!?
But then J realized that it was his late wife paying them a visit. She was not interacting with them much, instead she fooled
around the house, possessing some of the furniture and whooshing from one room to the other.



At last J got enough courage together to start up a conversation with her. He was quite interested in knowing how it felt to
be on the other side, considering that he might soon follow her there. Though she did not bother to answer his question,
she was friendly with him, and they had a warm conversation. J invited her to stay the night and they shared a longing kiss.



Jolene waited a whole week before she heard from Ethan again, and was about to give up hope on seeing him again, when
he called and invited her to have coffee with him. Again, he disappointed her with what he wore, or decided not to wear.
This time around he lost the t-shirt,  but was still in his boxer shorts. However, she could not help but stare at his abdomen.
He had a great build, and she immediately forgave him for being dressed so skimpy.



Soon after they sat down, waiting for their coffee to be served, Ethan told her that he was already looking forward to
visiting with her again, since he felt he could talk to her for hours and hours. He suggested they should do this soon again.





Jolene told her father about having met Ethan and thought it wise to prepare him for the way Ethan like to dress (or not to dress).

I didn't know that you can interact with the ghost..I never played the ghost before..I just either sent the tombstone to a cemetery or put it in the back corner of the lot and put water around it..then they stayed out of my way..they drove me nuts scaring the household to death literately lol..or kept moving things around..specially that stupid cow on the college campus..it still could set the sprinklers off..

Announcement:

Since so many of us were affected very badly by the decision taken by PB regarding our pictures, I must decide whether I am going to put this puzzle back together or delete this topic and start over. To figure out which pictures belong to each post will be as hard work as to start over a new legacy.

I would appreciate your input in this regard.

I think you should just continue with the story, Anita, rather than try and figure out how to replace all the pictures...

You could just insert some pictures here and there with the earlier text, instead of attempting to replace all the earlier pictures. Include a paragraph of text at the beginning regarding the Photobucket fiasco.

Keep it stress-free for yourself.

I have started to put up the images and deleted quite few.
But again, I decided to wait a bit until we know which host will be the safest.
I do NOT want to go through this again any time soon!
It will therefore take a while for me to upload the rest of the images.

I wanted to move the family to one of the other legacies, and then discovered that I do not have the save anymore!! dontgetit I know I did save the Reese game, but with the update that changed how one's saved games look, I think I must have unknowingly deleted it or may have overwritten it with another save.

So the Reese legacy ended with Antonia having had a full life with her husband, J.

I am inspired by Nikki's new family so will start on a new legacy soon.

I lost several saves back when they changed how to save...

I did what you're doing, Anita - restarted - thankfully, I have exported all my builds so I will always have them :D

(I did so with all the cc, LOL! My One Drive is 1/2 a terabyte full! heheheheh)

Ohhhh Anita! I loved the story of Antonia, J, and Jolene! I was so looking forward to seeing what he thought about her young man! Your story telling was awesome too and so many twists and turns in the story! I was not expecting Antonia to pass away so soon (probably all those trips to the bar! LOL)

I can't wait for you to start your new story!



Thank you so much Crissi for my beautiful signature! *hugs*
