c'est dommage :(

They’re cutting down all my baby’s trees! He loved to hug those trees. There were four of them in front of our house, and he would run from tree to tree hugging them. I don’t know where he learned that. I mean, sure I’m a tree-hugging hippie, but I don’t think I’ve actually hugged one in front of him before. But he did. He hugged trees and it was cute. But he won’t be hugging those trees anymore 🙁

So, I have a shamefully dorky confession to make. You all know I am the biggest dork alive. I mean, there are no illusions of coolness here, so I’ll just come out with it. I write a little blog about my Simmies, narrating their adventures as I play them – something like a soap opera. It’s stupid most of the time, it attempts to be funny (it probably fails), it is ridiculously dramatic. But I check my site stats and people spend hours reading this thing, people come back every day to read it, so there must be some merit. Some of it may be irrelevant to people who don’t play the game, but anyway, I just wanted to say that it’s there. There, I feel better now.

Just plugging along. Starting chapter five, polishing up chapter four for my writers group to read. Man, I’m coming up on the half-way point soon. That’s a little exciting.

I think I’ve mourned and come to accept the fact that one of my characters does die. Yes, she does. It fits the story too. It’s going to be sad 🙁

I’m sorry, but how cute are they???
