Ch 2.8 ~ Emptiness and regret

Journal Entry 8

~Emptiness and regret~

I was in jail, for bribing an official, when mom passed on.  I will never forgive myself for not been there for Geraldine and Jefferson.

My deepest regret

My deepest regret

We had a problem with finding her remains.  They were not in the cemetery.  Eventually we realised they were still at Goerge Dean’s house.  Sadly he had passed on the day after mom.  Eventually a new couple moved into his house.  Geraldine went over and explained the situation to them and they were more than happy to give us mom’s remains.

She rests in the family cemetry at the back of our estate.  At first she was there alone…

…But after alot of red tape we eventually managed to get dad’s remains so that we could place them beside her.  At least they were together again.

Mom and dad, together again at last...

Jefferson was deeply affected by mom’s passing, it seemed as though he had only ever known pain and loss in his life.

Jefferson at mom's graveGeraldine became an adult just after mom died.  She had been in town to get her mind off things and did not want to have a party, but the townies were there to have an impromptu celebration with her anyway.

Whee!

Whee!

Oooo, tingle tingleGeraldine becomes an adultGeraldine poured all of her energies into her creativity and managed to finish three more novels.  She received her highest royalty check to date, $843. *Novels listed in ch 2.2*

She had also been commissioned by City Hall to do 12 paintings which would be put on display in various locations in town so as to beautify the surroundings.  She is still working on that at the moment.

Before we knew it, it was time for Evangeline and Valentia to start their journey as kids.  Grade school and all it’s adventures waited before them.

What's so tingly?

Just after this, it was little blondie’s turn.

Valentia... lol, even if you can't see

Evangeline... lol, even if you can't see

Valentia loved the swing that mom had bought for them when they were still babies.

I'm flying....

I'm flying....

Evangeline was more serious and diligently did her homework before having fun.

Phew, now I'm done!

Phew, now I'm done!

I spent my time working to avoid my grief and I got promoted to a Bank Robber shortly after mom died.   I now earned $128 per hour.  I was only a hop and a skip from achieving my LTW.

My heart ached terribly and I wished that mom was still around to share all these happenings with us.  Sometimes, I did get the feeling that she was with me, but I only ever felt her presence in my darkest hours of regret.

    I had tears in my eyes when I saw your picture of their graves… But then again, I’m sipping some deliciously chilled Pinot Grigio while I’m reading your blog…

      😀 I am glad I envoked feelings for you, lol, I thought i was the only nutjob! I am still hoping to see Morti and Jon together, so far they getting up on seperate days.

      I wailed my eyes out with Generation one and three I think it was in The Love of Matriachy!

      If it was nighttime, it would be with a glass of Merlot, but I usually do all my reading in the day.

    I’m finally catching up on my blog reading. Some of these pics got me really misty-eyed. I’m also jealous of your aging up pics, the way you captured the light show. I tried to do that and failed miserably.

    I’m loving reading this.

      Thanks for droppping by Sue D. Nim (:

      Lots of pause and snap.. but my pics are so far behind some of the blogs I follow.

      I have been focusing on detail and close up with my playing atm, so hopefully my pics in the next few chapters will really display the emotions my sims are feeling.

      I am glad you enjoying it!

      Sigh, yes, Jon and Morti 😀 What lovebirds they were.

      Check by later, I am just fixing the pages widget thingy-me-bob and I will be publishing 4 new chapters any moment now.

    That was so neat that you got both the tombstones back. Would you mind telling me exactly how you managed it? I might want to do that sometime and I can’t even think how I’d go about it.

    Also have to say I really like the way you keep up with all of Geraldine’s novels. *nods in approval*

      I am not sure if you can do this if you do not have a klepto, but I sent either Jefferson or Maxi, can’t remember which, down to the cemetery and they had the option to “pick up grave”.

      It then went into their inventory and I dragged it from there into the family cemetery to be with Morti again.

      As for Geraldine’s novel’s I just wish she got to write more.. unfortunately this blog is made up of pages and not posts, in hindsight it might have been alot more organised if it had been posts, but I wanted to keep Geraldine’s list of novels in one place, so chapter 2.2 was the only way I could do that and that is why I made a specific chapter for her.
