Currently following the life of a Bluebeard

2.5 Twins and Robots

4 Comments

Today was the twin’s first birthday.

I sighed.

It also marked a year since my parents died.

They died the night I gave birth to Aiden and Yanni.

I watched as Aiden played with his peg box and Yanni beat the xylophone.

They both had my mother’s hair and my father’s eyes.

I loved my boys so much, and it felt like in a way, my parents were still with us.

It was bed time, and as usual, Yanni was hiding.

He wasn’t crazy about bed time.

Screenshot-19

I tucked the boys in and looked at the wall paper. This room was past due for a makeover.

Screenshot-21

I stepped out on the back porch and put on my snow boots.

I walked to the small garden were my parents rested.

Screenshot-24

“I miss you guys.” I whispered.

Taking care of twins was definitely a challenge.

Jeff’s job was keeping him extremely busy.

Zach tried to help.

Screenshot-22

Zelda….Zelda tried too.

“Mom…” she yelled from the study. “…what was I getting again?”

“Yanni’s bottle.” I said, possibly for the third time.

“Oh yeah.”

With Jeff’s long hours, and I really was trying to keep up with the twins, a teenager and an absent-minded daughter.

One night I was teaching Aiden how to talk…

Screenshot-28

My phone rang.

“Mrs. Bluebeard, this is Officer Glass. We have Zach in custody. We caught him shoplifting.”

Screenshot-29

My hands started to shake.

“What do I need to do?”

“Well, he is still a minor…so I can just bring him home, as long as you are there.”

“Thank you Officer. I am home.”

Screenshot-30

I was furious. No….I was beyond furious.

“How could you be shoplifting! Why?!?” I yelled.

Screenshot-32

“I…I…”

“We have enough money for you to buy anything you need!”

“I…I…”he stuttered. “I don’t know  Mom. I’m sorry….”

“Don’t do it again.”

Screenshot-31

Zelda stood in the hallway.

She was crying. I sighed.

“Go to bed Zach. Zelda, go pick out a book sweetheart. I’ll read you a story.”

Screenshot-25

The boys woke up at the same time the next morning.

Early.

Screenshot-26

I had hardly slept the night before.

I got the boys settled  and walked to the kitchen.

“Wow, Mom. You look rough.” Zach said.

Screenshot-35

“Wait…that’s not what I meant. I mean, I know it’s probably because of me…Look, let me watch the boys and Zelda. You could go to the spa or something.”

And so I did.

Screenshot-36

“What about your hair?” the stylist said.

“Cut it.” I said.

A make-over was just what I needed.

I felt like a completely new person.

Finally, after all these years, and a lot of hard work, the time portal had been stabilized.

The company wanted Jeff…and me…to go to the future, research and build a robot for the present time.

Screenshot-118

I knew we shouldn’t be gone long (in present time), but I asked a friend, and neighbor, Sheila Tucker to come watch the kids.

Jeff and I stepped through the portal.

His first time wasn’t so fun.

Screenshot-81

Jeff began by interviewing the resident robot.

Screenshot-83

The next morning we went to the Bot Shop.

I was particularly interested in the Nannybot.

Screenshot-87

While Jeff was drawn to a more aggressive model.

Screenshot-91

And although Jeff and I weren’t on vacation, we did enjoy some time alone.

Screenshot-100

After quite a bit of research at the library,

Screenshot-123

Jeff was ready to build his first robot.

Screenshot-134

He was felling pretty confident, and I must say I was impressed.

He adjusted the robot’s trait chips.

Screenshot-135

We were almost ready to go home….there was just something I needed to do first.

I looked up Bluebeard in the directory.

I got the address and went to visit.

The house was awesome.

I was greeted by a nice lady.

“Hi. I’m Bianca Bluebeard…is Diane home?”

She hugged me.

Screenshot-82

 “I’m her sister-in-law, Mary. Diane isn’t here right now.” she leaned in and whispered,”I’m house-sitting. She and my brother are on their second honeymoon. It’s their 20th anniversary!”

We talked for a little longer, and it was a relief to hear that everyone was doing well.

The next morning, Jeff, the robot and I were ready to go home.

Screenshot-136

When we got home, Jeff packed a few things.

He had to deliver the robot to Hidden Springs, and unfortunately that meant he would be gone for a week.

At least he made it home in time for the boy’s 8th birthday.

Screenshot-41

Not even a week later, Zelda turned 15.

She was turning into a lovely lady.

Screenshot-46

Zach was phenomenal with the guitar.

Jeff  and I were so proud.

Screenshot-141

***

One crisp Spring evening, Zelda accompanied me to the Tucker’s house for a get together.

I’m not sure if I had forgotten that their son Marshall had turned into a teenager, or that Zelda was a teenager…

He introduced himself.

Screenshot-145

She was instantly smitten.

By the end of the evening, the both were.

Screenshot-147

I was not prepared for my daughter’s flirtatious giggles…

Screenshot-149

I cleared my throat, thanked Sheila for a lovely evening, and announced that it was time to go home.

Zelda was not happy with me.

Screenshot-150

Too bad!

***

Zach was only days away from graduating.

I was sitting in the kitchen watching Yanni play in the new sand box.

Screenshot-21

Zelda came running through the door.

“MOM!” she yelled with a panic.”

“What’s the matter Zelda?”

She was out of breath…

“Some college guys….in the park…they dared Zach to….guitar duel…Grimm…Cemetery!”

I got in the car.

I hope I make it in time….

  1. I like Bianca’s new hairdo! It’s sad to hear Marcus and Pandora have died, I loved them they were a great couple 😦
    Great chapter as always! 🙂

    • I like the new hairdo too. To be honest, the bun has a bald spot that I was always trying to take pictures around, and it got on my final nerve. Lol.
      After traveling to the future, my game started lagging-bad. I had practically do flips to get everything right again. I hate that I wasn’t able to go into more detail on their passing, but they did pass of natural causes. 🙂
      Thank you!

  2. So what do you think of that Grim lot on the store was it worth the money? I love your writing style the story flows so well, and your characters are great.

    • It was a gift..It is cool, and has lots of cool features…
      My favorite Sims news site is SimsVip.com
      They always have in depth reports on all the store items.
      Thank you!
