Cameron Masters - Simday 20

46 simyears old:

I'm torn between two loves again.

This time it has to do with my career...not Stacy and Trinity, like some of you were probably thinking. Gotcha!

I love being the webmaster of Simmington Hills' website, and archiving all the history that goes on here, but I also love being a Scientist. I hardly have the time to formulate theories and concoctions because my Archive Librarian job keeps me so busy.

Because of this, I've decided to write a book. What better way to combine my love of the two. The book will be a scientific study on the possibilites of ghosts. I've titled it, simply, "Are Ghosts Among Us?"

I've nearly completed it, but I have to do one final step: stay for awhile in Simhead Cemetery. I don't know how long yet. It depends on what I see. I just hope Stacy will go for it.

For now, I'm working hard and enjoying my family. That means my cats too. I'm in love with my cats. I'm the only one in the house that takes care of them. Stacy couldn't go near the litter because of her pregnancy. And yes, we got another one. His name is Patches. And let me tell you...he is one journal entry all by himself! This dude has so much personality, you have to see him in action to believe it.

He and Princess got along right away and started playing together.

You may remember Princess was born to Judge Sabien and Tomika's cats, Pepper and Snowflake...essentially making her the heir to the 1st cats of Simmington Hills. *smiles* bare with me, now...

See, this is Princess. She looks just like her father Snowflake.

In fact, Sabien brought the boys by one day to play with Tyisha, and brought Pepper and Snowflake too, so they could see how well Princess had grown.

So, the way I see it. We mate her with Patches, they have some beautiful kittens, and we continue her legacy on through the generations. It's pretty important stuff, since we're the ones starting this town. I may even register her breed, so it will really be official. *That reminds me, I need to get her a collar!*


Sabien is my best friend. I don't know how the dude does it, but he never lets anyone shake him up. He recently got caught in the middle of a ruthless campaign to slander his name and his office. That new gossip magazine, THG, started it all. I wonder if we'll ever find out who's behind it? You can believe I'm digging into it.

Well, when he came over to drop the boys off, we always try to sneak in our old Sims State school cheer, when no one's looking.

'Isha-poo is so crazy about the boys, she loves hanging out with them. It's hard to tell which one she likes the most. I kid Sabien about being his relative one day. LOL! In all seriousness, though. I CAN WAIT. I want her to stay little for as long as possible.

I have to watch her though...One minute she's playing nice, and the next minute she's trying to play dirty.

Stacy had fixed us all some grape jello for a snack, and I tell you...Marchon had some very inquisitive thoughts on Politics. That boy might take his father's place one day. Very smart kid, that Marchon.

Rashid...hmmph. He still might need a little home training.

I know his parents have taught him not to go to other people's houses and jump on their beds. But, he's still a cool kid. He just has to learn how to act right, that's all.

Stacy Masters - Simday 20

38 simyears old:

My latest pregnancy was never ending. I don't know if it was from the stress of causing an uproar in the community when I mailed that letter to the Judge's office on Simday 16 causing a huge blow up in Simday's Paper. Judge C was practically hung out to dry about his response. I certainly didn't mean to fuel a slant campaign towards our future Mayor.

Well, I knew my baby was due around Simday 13, but that day came and went.

Dr. Dalton advised me that I was being too active, not gaining the necessary weight I needed to advance. In turn, the baby wasn't gaining the weight it needed either. Although it was healthy, we expected the baby would be small.

I needed to relax, but there was so much to do. I wanted to throw a birthday party for Tyisha. With Cameron at work all day, it was up to me to keep up with the household as best I could.

I tried to relax when he got home from work in the evenings, but so much was running through my mind. I needed to buy a table and chairs for the party, balloons, food...what was I going to prepare that was easy enough, but hearty enough to fill everyone's stomachs?

And, forget my little tomato garden outside. I would be surprised if they even turned out edible. My apple tree and tomatoes have pretty much gone rotten with neglect. Do you know that we got hit with ANOTHER $2,000 garden maintenance fine this period?! That's just money thrown away. Well, not thrown away, it does help the Administration...but, still. We're gonna have to do better. We don't have loads of money to give away.

Our beautiful daughter, Tyisha, deserved to have a birthday party to celebrate. She's our firstborn which makes her special, and she knows it. We have SO many pictures of this child displayed around the house.

It helps that my Yard Sale was semi-successful. The money we made from selling Cam's hideous 70's furniture, will help me throw this party.

I tried to think of a present that Tyisha would appreciate, and since we're all so attached to Princess, it would be nice to get another cat for Princess to play with. Maybe even have kittens with. I know the house is small and cramped, but it's worth it to have another cat around.


The day of the party, I was outside most of the day arranging everything. Trying not to get too distracted, but Princess and Tyisha were having so much fun, I had to join in for a minute.

I couldn't have asked for better weather. This Spring has been filled with thunderstorms, almost everyday. Tyisha brings sunshine to any situation, so her birthday was going to be beautiful, I could tell.

All our friends started showing up: Tomika and her boys, Rashid and Marchon, Emerita, Honey and Keva, Sierra Spencer, and Trinity. You ask, "Why was Trinity invited?" Well, she's my doctor. And we're friends. Cameron was the one hung up on her, not vice versa. And he's cool about it now. I forgave him for ditching me for her a long time ago. We know if either of us steps out of line there are two penguin costumes in the closet just waiting to see the light of day again. LOL!

I got a call from Erline Valdes in the midst of greeting everyone. She called to say she and her twin brother, Elmer, wouldn't be able to make it, but their mother was there to represent. That was really thoughtful. We love the Valdes' because they were our neighbors over at Cedar Two Flats. We've become great friends. 'Rita also works with my husband on the website, taking the Census information.

We also had the kids, Charles and Christina Wise over, (CPS Principal/Teacher Maxine Wise's son and daughter). Maxine was invited but I guess she still has beef with me. We had a small altercation in SimCity. Nothing major so I won't go into it. Obviously, it was major to her though...she keeps knocking my trashcan over. Not very mature, if you ask me. I'm still not quite sure if I want Tyisha to attend her school. Of course, Cameron doesn't want to hear it. He's trying to mediate the situation.

True enough, Tyisha needs to be in a better school to prepare her for college, and CPS is equipped to do that. *I'm gonna get Cam' for having my baby out in the rain!*


I ended up serving a spinach quiche for the party. My first time making it, and I guess it wasn't that good 'cause nobody ate it.

Even though we put our dining table and chairs in storage for the party, people were in and out our refrigerator eating snacks all evening. Refusing to come near my spinach quiche!

That didn't matter in the end. They were all there to share in our special day.

My baby grew up! Too bad her father was at work and missed it.

We did her makeover as soon as she finished her cake. She was ready to shed her baby girl looks.

Isn't she gorgeous? Looking just like her Daddy!

A couple days later, Tyrone was born. Much to me and my doctor's delight! Thus ending the longest pregnancy in SH so far (Simday 11 to Simday 20). He weighed 4lbs, so Trinity had to keep him in the hospital for a short while. (The Simday's paper reported a couple days, but it was only for a few hours.)

Kimberly Spencer - Simday 20

Summer is just around the corner, and boy do I have plans! Plans for my husband, that is...

I'm so ready for the weather to change it's been too rainy this Spring. Couldn't enjoy it. Plus, the death of my daughter Shauna made things even more dismal around here. We've bounced back though. I've bounced back. I'm planning on having another baby, whether Sergio wants one or not. He's the one about to hit middle-age, not me. LOL! I think it would be nice for Sierra to have a sister, too. I hope to get pregnant again and have a girl.

Don't misunderstand me...My son, Shaun is a delight to have around the house. He's everything I ever hoped for in a son.

He's a joy to everyone including Sierra. She loves him, although I think she loves our animals a lot more than any of us.

I have taught her how to fish. You'd think a prissy little girl would have a problem with sticking a worm on a hook, not this child. Oh noooo...she wants to bait ALL the hooks! LOL! I love to fish with her because that's when she and I can really talk. We've become so close and I couldn't have it any other way. Sierra is going to be a very bright and interesting adult. I can tell by the questions she asks. Not just the questions themselves, but the way she asks them. You'd have to be there to know what I mean. Oh! and lets not forget to mention pretty, that little girl is gorgeous and a ham for the cameras.

Well, I do all the fishing for The Hills right now, and its kinda wearing me thin. I did it all through my pregnancy with Shaun, too. Hopefully, I'll have some help at the end of this period. I've already gained a Bronze badge and I'm catching some pretty hefty sized fish! Too bad I don't have a picture to prove it, you'll just have to trust me on that.

If I'm not fishing, I'm spending time with my kids and decorating our home. I try to teach Shaun a nursery rhyme we used to sing as children. Like his big sister, he wants to be around the cows, so we go in there and sit on the hay and sing. (Well, his singing actually sounds a lot like he's snoring, but I'm hoping he'll get better the more we practice.)

Here's a couple more pics of my handsome boy.
