Temperature Dropped, 2006

Peacar, winter, 2006

Johan is 45, Jadhira is 44, Myra and Naraj are 11, Udar is 2

Johan had finally finished his degree. He finished in record time thanks to lots of cramming and late night studying. In the end, it was the final papers he had to submit to journals that really killed him. Thankfully the papers and his thesis were behind him.

Obtaining his advanced degree had meant a lot of late nights which had meant a lot of nights tucking in his children after they have been sleep for hours.

Needless to say his intimate relationship with his wife suffered. Not for lack of trying on her part, but it seemed as if every time she approached him he was too tired or too stressed or too something.

"I'm tired of you pushing me away, Johan." Jadhira hissed as she jumped from the bed after another unsuccessful try.

"I'm tired, maybe tomorrow."

"That's what you said yesterday and the day before and last week! Do you know when the last time we woohoo'd?"

Johan tried to recall the date, "Last Monday?"

Jadhira rolled her eyes. "No, it's been six simweeks! Six freaking simweeks without woohoo!"

"Um...I'm sorry. It's been a stressful time."

"Whatever, I'm tired of your excuses. You're always tired or stressed or sleepy or sick or something!" she said grabbing her overcoat.

"Where are you going?"

"I need more batteries, unlike some sims I know, I do need regular orgasms."


Thankfully the twins and Udar were having a much easier life. Myra would indulge her mother who insisted on reading to her. Thankfully she convinced her that it was time to move from Choo Choo Chippy Train and to something a bit more age appropriate for a pre-teen, The Inside Story of Drag Racing.

Naraj was also enjoying his last few days as a pre-teen. He knew that he shouldn't enjoy playing with his toy cars and if the boys at school found out then he would be a dead sim and shunned at the lunch table. Hence the reason why he only played when he was sure that no one would walk in on him.

"I think you need to pack it tighter," Myra prompted.

Naraj nodded in agreement and added more snow to their creation.

"What are you two doing? Shouldn't your friends be here soon, you don't want to freeze before they arrive." Johan asked coming around to the back of the complex.

"We're working on a snow sculpture," Naraj explained. "Maybe we could submit it for art class and get an A."

"Maybe," Johan agreed. "Hey, who wants a quick swing?"

"I do!" Myra squealed dumping her handful of snow to jump into her father's arms.
Naraj watched in awe that Myra didn't promptly vomit afterwards. He could never tolerate being swung around very long and instead focused on his snowman.

"Hi Naraj! Hi Myra!"

"Dad, you can leave now." Myra reminded her father as more children began to arrive.

Jadhira and Johan had agreed to allow the twins to host a Christmas party. Thankfully the weather cooperated and delivered buckets of snow for the children to play in.

Myra, Naraj and their guests spent most of the afternoon having snowball fights,

giggling about entering secondary school next spring,

building snowmen and

just enjoying the cool weather.

Finally the children were called inside as the temperature dropped.

"So...uh...are you excited about going to secondary school next spring?" Abel asked.

"I am! Secondary school is where your life begins! You find out who you're going to marry and what you're going to be when you grow up. I can't wait!"

"I wish I was going too."

"You will, you have one more simyear and then you'll be in secondary school too. I'll still be in some of your classes though because of my...uh..."

"Your program?"

"Yea...I hate it, I don't like being different."

"It's ok. If you wasn't different, then you wouldn't be as special."

"You think I'm special?" Myra whispered.

"Yea...I think that you're-"

"Myra! You won't believe what Bryant said!" Grace Elise interrupted.

Abel watched as the cousins whispered

and giggled about whatever Bryant said to make his face go all splotchy and red.

"I think you're amazing," he whispered to himself.
  • ROS: Johan fulfill biggest want
  • For some reason Johan's ACR was reset and his One True Love was set to Julio how about no. #1-Johan doesn't like men, #2-Those two have a polite working relationship, the most they do is wave at each other.


  1. Aw, Abel's got his first little crush! Too cute!

    I'm glad Johan has finished his degree. Maybe he can pay more attention to Jadhira now. ;)

    By the way, that ACR weirdness you're talking about is the same thing I had with Abigail and Jesse a while back. Her One True Love kept changing to Vanessa Gentry. You may need to open Julio and Johan in SimPE and make sure they don't have any crush/love/other flags for each other (it's usually one-sided). I set Abigail's One back to Jesse a few times but it didn't stick until I fixed her and Vanessa in SimPE.

  2. Poor Jadhira, I hope you can get the ACR figured out, it's got to be pretty damaging to their relationship.

    Abel and his crush is super cute. Loved all the wintry snow pictures!

    It's great that Johan graduated!! What an accomplishment, now if the ACR gets fixed, he can start celebrating by spending time with his wife.

  3. -Carla, Abel has had a crush on Myra for a few simyears now. I think he first told me about it in this post:

    -Maisie, thanks. I finally have the ACR working, which is great and those two are making up for lost time too.


Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment! :)
