Chapter 1.7

Wow!  Been a single mom proved to be harder than I thought. I did not even have time to update my journal regularly.

I don’t know if it was the stress I was under in the last while of my pregnancy, but Maxi was a very difficult baby.  She was colicy and cried alot.  I did not get much sleep, and hardly ate.  When she eventually passed out, so did I.  Luckily I had my garden to pick stuff to nibble on as I really had no time for cooking.

** not that i had a stove anyways **

However, when Maxi would peer at me through the pink folds of her blanket, it made it all worth it.

The first night

I barely had two cents to rub together so there was no money for a babysitter.

I really needed time to think and sort out how I felt about that cheating dog Jon.  I still could not believe he had done that to me!  I thought our love was special and different… obviously I was wrong!  I felt like i was going stir-crazy.

As you can see, I really am “pauper sally” as I did not even have money to decorate the baby room *lol* .  The cot cost an arm an a leg, but at least Maxi had somewhere comfy to snuggle in.  I was so far out of my depth compared to the pampered “Princess AppleBlossom” lifestyle I had left behind in Pleasantview.

Having stared at those bleak gray walls myself, my first goal was to get the room decorated and buy some toys so I used the small maternity allowance I was getting from work to do that.  Windows and a light bulb were my next goal *lol* .

Maxi and me

I think that looks nice. I hoped the cheery flowers would help Maxi cry less and possibly I would have less vengeful, murderous thoughts about that cheating dog.

It is amazing the various ingenious ways one can invent for an agonising and painful death in the wee hours of the morning.

One particularly ingenious idea, was building a tiny room outside with nothing but a really uncomfortable sofa and a coffee machine.  Invite that cheating dog over, lure him into the room, then get the handyman to remove the door with the cheating dog trapped inside.  No toilet, no food but only a cofee machine… oh the possibilities for humilation are endless!  MWAHAHAHA

Of course there are flaws in the plan… for one thing I don’t have money, for another I hardly doubt I could convince the handyman of no ill intention!

Yes siree! I had gone stir-cray o.O

I saw an announcement in the Riverview Times.  Constance Shelley gave birth to a healthy baby boy.  His name was Lamar Shelley. My blood boiled!

    I love Morticia, she’s a very ‘real’ sim in the way she thinks and articulates what she’s feeling.

      I loved Morti, though I was a bit worried when I first saw her random traits and how they would effect how she came across in the story.
      But oddly enough, LOL, she turned out to be much like myself (‘Cept I don’t randomly steal neighbours potplants *cough*) and I found it much easier to get her emotions across on paper than I thought.
      Of course all the disasters were also an inspiration in moments when I had no idea which way the story would go.

      The rough story line I had in my mind before I went to CAS and made her, is not how it ended up being at all. Though I have stuck to the “stong woman” theme, and I am please with the results none the less.

      Thanks for reading Rad, your comments are appretiated.

    Morticia is a great mum. I love the way she did the baby room. I hope she is going to put her thinking about the ‘cheating dog’ into action. Murder would be too good though… just rob him blind! :0

      Lol moondaisy 😀

      You know women.. *eyeball roll* ->

      “But… I love him!” *sigh*

      Morti felt bad about robbing, even though she does not have the ‘good’ trait, the want to return a stolen item often popped up.

    I’m glued – I HAVE to know what happens to this blaggard Jon!

    • worsiedog · November 2, 2009

      More than likely not the the result you would like.

    OH noes not the dreaded box of doom!

    I hope Morti can get that lightbulb she’s been dreaming of pretty soon. I have been feeling pretty sorry for her and the baby hangin’ out there in the dark.

    • worsiedog · November 12, 2009

      LOL Catherine.. specially when they get the “scared of the dark” moodlet inside, yet they don’t mind been in the dark outside

      *rolls eyes*
