Hello! I’m so happy to see you! The Zales (and their house) have landed in Appaloosa Plains. I just wasn’t ready to say goodbye to the last house, so I brought it with me. If I have problems, I’ll just begin again with a new house in a new Appaloosa Plains. I also didn’t want to lose that garden that Juniper worked so hard on. I played for a few minutes to see how the game ran, and then I quit for a few days. This post will begin a little differently.
Aside from there being no sidewalks in AP, The house fits in quite nicely.
So – I don’t have my notes, but I’m going to try to post this anyway… We’ll see how that goes.
This is Krypton inventing. Say Hi Krypton.
Lilac and Levi bond of making faces.
Such good kids.
Krypton! You’re on fire!
Young man! For a level 8 inventor, you’re awfully flammable today!
Lavender here is enjoying that fact that winter instantly ended and it’s summer again.
Krypton – you’re a mess.
He then rolled a wish to sell the inventing table. Sorry homie, no can do.
Aw, kids, you’re cute…
That’s not your bed though.
(Foreshadowing: I have taken this sleeping moment for granted.)
So, there ends my test play session, and here begins a proper update! You know what that means! Zale Check!Juniper is playing a football video game in the study.
Krypton is busy inventing.
I have no idea where he got that outfit. I tried to take him into CAS to fix it, and I was told he wasn’t wearing one of approved outfits for CAS. So the mystery remains. He favors it too, I have to constantly ask him to change into his “everyday”.
Due to her youngest children having stolen her bed, Samali has taken over one of theirs.
I do not blame her.
Lilac here looks like she’s just walking down a hallway…
…but I remember, even without my notes, that she has “clean up dishes” in her queue. Well alright!
Livid is asleep.
Wonderful, human, teenage Livid. Sleeping.
Lavender is upstairs watching the massive TV.
Leslie and Levi are in their own beds…
I’m pretty sure I cheated this on my test play session to get them out of Sam’s bed.
This is pretty much all Krypton does.
So there’s lots of pictures like this. At least he’s not wearing the mystery outfit, or on fire.
Lilac, you really are your mother’s daughter!
Hey! Look what Krypton made!
It’s a… thing.
He’s also managed to invent a miner!
I’ve never had one of those before!
He’s also invented the harvester!
It didn’t work though, he just got stressed out, dizzy, and threw up. Nice.
I finally got all the dead people out of Krypton’s pocket.
So many! I still think Imogene’s little grave there in front of Helen and Ramon is super sad. 😦
This is why I got the decensor mod…
You can actually see them playing with the bubbles! I love it!
They put all that time into animated bubbles, people should be able to see it!
Isn’t it adorable? I always hated how the censor thingie got in the way. I do feel a little pervy – especially when I “walked in” on Livid hopping in the shower… But I had Krypton go to the store and buy five bottles of bubble bath, now every tub has one (and a duckie!)
Lilac and Levi win this legacy. That’s HIS bed, and I believe he falls asleep.
His twin sister on the other hand, is about to drive me fully bonkers.
Lav and Grandma are tablet addicts.
Hi Sam! *waves*
The silly maid put all the toys away though. I should’ve thought of that.
ATTENTION! I have discovered why dishwashers break!
*whispers* It’s the children
Look! She CLIMBS on it when she puts her dishes away!
Seriously, Leslie!?! I don’t think that’s necessary!
Leslie’s adventure with sleep deprivation begins.
Innocently enough with a request for a bedtime story.
Sam, being a good mother complies, but doesn’t insist on Leslie going to her OWN bed.
Levi is a good son.
(I love how he thinks his house is “new” – Isn’t it oddly familiar?)
The eldest alien children do not require sleep, and are spending time together. Lavender looks grumpy – I wonder if she’s grumpy? I don’t remember.
So more of this is happening.
I might’ve taken it because he’s level 9 now! I’m starting to feel confident that we’re going to make his LTW!
Look who’s tired.
Look who just enjoyed a perfectly fine bedtime story on a perfectly fine bed.
And is not asleep.
Look who’s exhausted, has queued up “sleep until 7:00 am” IN THE TREEHOUSE.
It’s 6:47am. But fine, you go sleep in the treehouse.
It’s well after 7:00 when she begins her climb to slumber.
I don’t care if you sleep in there all day…
Nope… she heads off to school instead.
But doesn’t quite make it to the bus.
She then goes inside and heads to her room. I almost rejoiced!
But she’s just “napping”
Krypton’s father sense is tingling.
I must not finish these waffles. I smell child home from school.
Aw, the little peanut looks nervous.
I almost felt bad for her. Almost.
Krypton: WHY ARE YOU NOT IN SCHOOL YOU SLEEPY CREATURE?
Then immediately let off the hook and sent to school.
I wish I could have her nap in class.
Krypton himself is feeling a little drained…
And decides that Leslie’s bed will do nicely. Heck, someone should use it.
This kid continues to be my favorite.
Oh look who’s tired?
I pull Krypton away from his skilling and intervene. GO TO BED.
She nods approvingly, then queues up ask someone for a story.
NO! GO TO BED.
I will NOT read you to sleep! GO TO BED.
NO! Do NOT ask your mother for a story.
GO TO BED!
I had Krypton attempt to send her to bed at least 6 times. This is how successful we were.
Krypton: I give up.
I hate you, Leslie Zale.
She then drags Lilac into her stinky, sleepless existence.
I can’t care any more.
Krypton goes back to work.
We have skills to master.
Levi! No! Not you too!
You’re supposed to be the good one!
Do my eyes deceive me?
I don’t know which one of you did it, but that is a sleeping Leslie behind you. I also want to point out how incredibly different Lilac and Livid are. Considering they’re triplets!
Apparently all my suffering with non-sleeping Sims, I became rather obsessed with it, as I took these following two screen shots:
Yup, sleeping Sims.
This one however, I can understand a little bit more. Levi remains the good son.
And Lavender is an excellent sister.
Juniper her is 89 days old.
She could go at any time. This makes me sad. Considering I didn’t even want her, I have grown incredibly attached.
As one of five siblings, alone time with your parents must be hard to come by.Lavender makes an effort and joins them. While being stared at by a laundry gnome.
Enjoy it! The last shot of these two as CHILDREN.
They are pretty stinkin’ cute though. And for being twins, are very different looking. Levi looks like his father, and Leslie like her mother.
The Zales don’t really know anyone in AP, and I haven’t plopped down spares or SimSelves, but the kids had met a few acquaintances at school, so I invited them. This kid is uh… Dorothy Button! (GO MEMORY!)
I like her, I think she has a unique look, and I love her large eyes.
And, as it would figure, if I like her, Leslie doesn’t.
Too bad, she’s even at your birthday party.
Yup! Levi and Leslie are aging into teens!
Party complete with floor pancakes.
Levi goes first, and has uh… Bot Fan! Yeah! Bot fan, locked in. And that means he’s a… artistic, eccentric, athletic bot fan! If memory serves, which I think it does!
He looks like a chubby Krypton. I add green streaks to his green hair just because.
Calm down Lilac – you can have a piece of cake in a moment.
Hi nameless kid! *waves*
I have never been so happy to see a Sim stop being a CHILD.
Ha, she’s scared. Good.
Oh man, can I remember her traits? I know she was stuck with Supernatural Fan – which considering I have it turned off will be tricky, but she herself IS supernatural so… I know she’s grumpy, loves the outdoors, and… damn. I can’t recall the last one.
And she’s pretty cute. And will continue to rock short hair.
And with that, dearest Sam completes her LTW!
Man, you’ve hardly seen her this post. She just totters around and reads books. I frequently have to go into her inventory and put all the books back on the book shelf. I promise to pay more attention to her soon. And when Krypton completes his LTW I’ll send them on lots of dates and stuff.
Apparently Levi didn’t like being called a “chubby Krypton”…
Feel the burn, buddy.
And, like all good Zale parties, we end with a broken appliance.
I knew it was you, Leslie.
Thank you Krypton.
Now back to work.

Funny afterthought: I have the most entertaining spam messages, but this one is my favorite:
Microsoft has been coy about revealing the number of Surface tablets
that it has sold thus far. However, they require you to put up your home as collateral, so you risk losing your home
if yoou makke late payments or fail to make them at all.
You will get the bundled wireless keyboard and mouse which will
give you great typing experience.
Good heavens! You can lose your house! But what a great typing experience. HA!
