Journal Entry 12
~The absent-minded mom~
With all the excitement with the finishing off of the legacy home as well as the whole Kentucky Fried Sim debacle over, things went back to semi-normal.
I loved my job as a Master Thief, for one thing, I never got arrested anymore (bonus!!). I forgot to show you the nifty little trophy I received from my boss for reaching the top. Call it the Oscar of Thievery perhaps, if you will(pity it’s not real gold!).
I was the mastermind behind one of the biggest and most famous heists in Riverview history! Let’s just say that one morning when the mayor arrived at work, the icon of the city, The Golden Llama statue, was missing and I was $4000 richer. *snicker*
I thought future generations might be interested in seeing the original floor plan for the New Legacy Home.
On the first floor we have a gym, library, creative room, formal lounge, tv room off kitchen with open plan dining area, guest loo and two spare bedrooms with a shared bathroom.
This is still a work in process, hence the large open area.
This floor includes all the bedrooms, 5 of which are en-suite, a nursery leading to a playroom and another bedroom which shares the nursery bathroom at this stage. There is also a computer room with its own loo and 2 balconies.
As you can see by the open space this is also not complete but a work in progress as money allows.
There is also an undeveloped basement under both the main Legacy House as well as the First Generation starter home, which can be used at a later stage.
There is a small family cemetery in the back garden just off the entrance to the dining room.
We decided to keep mom’s original home on the property as a museum of sorts and a reminder of where we started. Mom, or at least the spirit of mom, still goes there alot and uses the TV, computer and beds.
Geraldine, I am sad to say, is one of the most absent-minded mom’s I have come across! I don’t understand it, as she has not one absent-minded bone in her body, but she just seems to ‘forget’ she has kids on some days.
Thankfully the house is full of family more than willing to lend a hand when Geraldine’s head is in the clouds.
She has been absorbed in her latest novel though, and also spends alot of time painting as usual. She has been trying to get Valentia and Evangeline to pose for family portraits, but they always have an excuse.
“My hair is not right today”
“I’m too tired, and besides I have homework”
Teenagers I guess.
Frankly I don’t care if you need the loo, Geraldine! Your babies are crying again!! *eyeball roll*
Needless to say, this young gentleman became a regular “visitor” in our home.
Hopefully the babies will grow up ok and all this crying won’t have a negative effect on their personalities!
