The Lazy Song

Round 8 - June 2041
 Last update/ Next update
Marshal White is 45, Shamella is 42, Evan & Ethan are 5 (Vanya de Muse is 5)

Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just want to lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up the phone, leave a message at the tone
Cuz today I swear I'm not doing anything, nothing at all

Shamella was happy to see that her sons seemed to be making friends at school. The summer had been filled with play dates from numerous children. Evan really seemed to be close with Hunter Picaso. The little boy came over fairly regularly, but never stayed very long as he wanted to go home and make sure his mom and sister were ok. He seemed to take his responsibility as the "man of the house" very seriously and Shamella thought it was very sweet.......

Ethan seemed to have gotten very close with Vanya de Muse. She was a very sweet girl, but there was something about her that made Shamella uncomfortable. She couldn't quite put her finger on what it was, but there was just something off about the child........

She wasn't rude or anything, quite the opposite in fact. And she had that shy innocence that kids had sometimes. She was always polite when asking for anything and she played quietly outside with Ethan........

But sometimes........her eyes seemed to hold more wisdom than any five year old should have. And there was always a force around her........a calming peacefulness that Shamella found comforting, but odd at the same time. She was sure she was imagining things, she had a tendency to over think things sometimes. But she couldn't quite shake the feeling.

Evan had ended the school year with a C average and Shamella had been talking to him about working a bit harder in school. She knew he was capable of doing better, but Evan would rather spend his time socializing with his classmates and playing on the playground. 

Marshal told her that she was overreacting, but she didn't want him getting into bad study habits. Evan was very much like Marshal, and he knew that the boy would be okay. He was only five years old after all. What five year old wouldn't rather play games than study?

Marshal was spending his summer working on an old junk car. They were still paying on their home and couldn't really afford a new one, but they did need another car. He was at the auto shop most of the day with the car and Shamella really needed her own car as well. He planned to open his own garage once they paid the house off and so he wanted to pay it off as soon as possible.

And while Shamella was worried about their study skills, Marshal was wondering about little Vanya. The boys were still in the "girls are yucky" stage, but one day they would take notice. And Vanya was a very pretty little girl, who would undoubtedly one day become a pretty teenager. And Marshal had a feeling that she may be the source of competition between his boys.....

* I swear I thought I had more pictures from this house! Nothing much really happened, it was just kind of a lazy summer for them

* Both boys are pretty good friends with Vanya and I could totally seem them both liking her when they're teens.......she is Tessa's daughter after all!

* I downloaded a cool garage a while back and I really do intend to let Marshal buy it. I just have to figure out a way for him to make money from it first. He's currently in a downloaded auto mechanics career and he's at level 6.

* I added a few wrinkles to both Marshal and Shamella this time:

Apparently Shamella isn't very pleased with the visible signs of aging lmao. I was in a giggle fit when I saw her make this face :)

* And up next.......the birth of the new alien baby! I already have the post written so I may publish it as early as tomorrow :)


  1. LOL! I have seen my simmies make the same face with new wrinkles :P Vanya is a sweetie I hope there isn't too much competition when they become teens.

  2. LOL, I've also seen Sims get annoyed after I add wrinkles! I think Anna was one of them, which was so fitting.

    Anyway, I love watching the boys' friendship with Vanya. I can definitely imagine how there might be some competition here 10 years down the track. This was about how Jack/Audrey/Charlie got started!

  3. Apple Valley - I guess no one likes getting older lol. Vanya is much more sweet than her mother Tessa! I suppose one of the twins could not be attracted to her, but she's so cute ya know? lol. I know sim attraction doesn't work like that, but I am interested in seeing what happens with them.

    Carla - I actually thought about that situation when I saw both boys playing with Vanya lol. I'm sure their teen years will be very interesting :)

  4. Vanya sure is a cutie! I hope she won't come in between the boys too badly, even if the drama can sometimes be nice. Makes for very interesting play and reading! ;)

  5. Loving her reaction to the wrinkles! Vanya is uber adorable, and it would be fitting for both boys to crush on her as teens, and maybe her on them too.

    Do tell what you decide with your auto mechanic shop. I have one in the game for Chris, but so far I'm just selling car stuff, and then having him refurb cars and sell those (which has only happened once, it takes him a while lol).


Thanks so much for reading and commenting! Awesomeness :)
