8.11: Campfire Songs

It wasn’t quite the vacation I had planned.

I was imagining lots of campfire songs and marshmallows. Perhaps Uncle Michel would cook up some fresh fish. Alice and I would fall madly in love and perhaps start on little ones of our own. Sappy, right? Well sometime you dream.

Life however, it’s not all roses. I should know better. I do know better. Life doesn’t really care what you think or dream. It just moves forward. Even when you’re ready, it still manages to surprise you. Our first night out and tragedy strikes.

And the Grim isn’t very big on charity. No matter how much one begs.

Although I’d rented the place for two more days, they weren’t much of a vacation. We just hung around the cabin.

I convinced him we should stay, didn’t want to lose our deposit. I would say it was fun, just the two of us.

We were all glad to get back home to familiar faces.

        • Aw, that’s stressful. I’ve just got these to left and they’re long due. So while there is sadness, it isn’t too much. Plus the last event to happen at camp, which I don’t write about since I failed to take a single shot, made me happy we’d gone. 8.12 is much happier, promise.

        • Shannon–this is so hard and we’ve all been through it and it can really rip up a person. So please reach out if you need a hug. You can PM me–or any of us,. I’m sure–at the forums, and we’ll be there with a cup of hot tea, a plate of blueberries, and a warm hug.

          • Thanks, Cathy! I appreciate it! Like your recent post, I’m playing through it. I may need a hug when Delaney’s time comes. I’ve been playing her since last November, but have decided no more youth potion. She’s had so much time now.

            • That’s a long time–I haven’t been with a Sim that long. Close, but not quite. I felt a twinge of sadness when I saw that screenshot of Delaney with Fiona in your recent chapter. Read my latest chapter for a new take on youth potion–in fact, you might want to read it before your next game-play session, as it offers an new type of option for our Sims.

  1. Love this post. I love Bane’s voice. Also, for decades (well, Sim decades) I’ve been striving to get that shot of the white-light of spirit in Grim’s hand. Your shot of it is beautiful! Maybe we can still it at Purple Day? Oh! Maybe we should have a Purple Day event for sharing favorite Grim photos!

    • I have some great Grim photos since grim is my absolute favorite character. So anytime there’s a reaping I take it real slow, just in case. We should share grim photos for sure. That and grims behaving…interestingly. Like when the grim showed up in my game at the new gym for a massage.
