Verde is doing very well in his job. He oversees the flight division and I have moved to the scout and sniper division. It's been my dream since joining the military to be a sniper. Training is brutal and intense, only the best make it out.
Thankfully, Verde's mother moved in with us when we moved to the townhouse. She is able to watch Esperanza during the day.
Esperanza is such a playful little girl, active too. She's always getting into something.
I love coming home and seeing her little face. She is one of the best things from my marriage to Verde.
I love him, truly and deeply, it just seems like S'Ahmisa hangs over us.
As soon as it seemed like he was over her and we moved into the townhouse, guess who moved next door. Yes, S'Ahmisa. We barely see her and her new family.
I am trying to make new friends, friends that don't include S'Amisha. Emma and I have hung out on occasion. I was waiting for her the other night because we were going ice skating.
This strange man started talking to me, but I didn't think much of it.
We had a great time skating but it was so cold.
When she suggested hot cocoa, I agreed.
When I went to pay, I discovered my wallet was missing. Ugh! I was robbed.
I had to go through the whole process of calling credit card companies and canceling accounts. Verde said that it happens to sims everyday, but not me! I am always so aware, I still don't understand how I was robbed. Thankfully the weather distracted me, yes, the weather.
This winter has seen record amounts of snow, which is great for playing with Esperanza,
spontaneous snow ball fights
and making snowmen.
Carmela made sure to stay inside with Pegao. She said her old bones couldn't take the chill.
She's not that old at all. I sometimes wonder if she will remarry. She is still running the art gallery, but she has a manager overseeing everything. She wants to pass the reins, but Verde has no interest in it, Rojo is irresponsible and Serendipity moved to another hood. I wonder if she would consider selling it.
She doesn't need a lot of money now, Verde and I are happy to cover her expenses since she saves us so much money by watching Esperanza.
Especially when I'm sick. I went to the clinic and they ran some tests. When I got the phone call I wasn't surprised.
Eating a bit more for meals,
feeling sick to my stomach,
it was all very familiar.
Verde and I are excited about the new addition. He surprised me as well. He said that he knew it was uncomfortable for us to live next door to S'Ahmisa and that we could move if I wanted.
Sometimes it does seem like he cares.
Baby #2 is due Fall 2016
