Yeah, its been a while…!
I decided to kick-start my blog again by putting all my cliffhangers together in one place. And by repeating my Sim-holidays tradition of a post without words, and a big family portrait – Serdar’s family this time. It’s a complicated family, so here’s a who’s-who:
Back: April Newson; Christine, Anna and Chris Green, with Jessica; Leo Depiesse; Aaron & Mari Green; Cory & Sam Green. Second/Sitting: Riley Green; Marsha Green; Helen Depiesse; Brandi & Serdar Green; Rose, Corinne & Noah Green. Front/Floor: Joel Green; Kody & Steven London (Mari’s son), with Stacey in front; Marina & Jody Green; Lizzie Bonacorrd.
And the other stories: Danny Tarro; Melissa Green; ???? (my first in-game teen pregnancy) – all I’m going to say on that one is that she’s in the family photo. There are actually three pregnant women in that photo, although I’m not saying who the other two are at this point. But, yeah, baby boom for Serdar’s family.
Outtakes: For anyone wondering why Sam is sulking on the sofa in the first picture of Cory’s family – this is how Christmas really started in their home:
Cory didn’t take it well:
Sheeesh, all she did was poke you in the shoulder! If anyone wonders why I write him as an emotional wreck half the time, well, there you go…
On another note, apart from r/l stuff and time issues, half the reason I’ve taken so long to post is that I’m having major trouble with Blogger – the new interface doesn’t work for me, I somehow unintentionally select pictures and move them around the place…or it duplicates the picture, when all I want to do is move it... this issue only started after they deleted the old interface, I’d been using the new one by choice without trouble before that.. and in a post with this many pictures, it is maddening.
I’m currently using Windows Live Writer to create posts instead (which is why there are some minor formatting inconsistancies in here - but, sorry, I'm not going to take even more time to fix it, when its 90% ok and I'm frustrated with this already!). This would be ok, except that Live Writer periodically freezes my computer. When you’re already short of time these technical problems can take all the fun out of doing this. So, I’m looking to possibly move my blog to a different host. Not sure when, or even if, I’ll do it – I may be able to work out the problems with Blogger or at least find a workable substitute for Live Writer – but its something I’m thinking about.
