Gordon had better get his act together or he is going to miss out on seeing his son grow up! I would want to know what he was up to, also. ♥

RosemaryMarie March 14, 2018 - 9:41 am

Thank you, Marj! 🙂 I couldn’t agree more. <3

Gordon’s unwillingness to change makes me think that Stella might be better off without him. She has a cute little baby now, after all 🙂

RosemaryMarie March 14, 2018 - 10:06 am

She sure does. 😀 This baby is so good in game, not fussy at all, which is nice. You might be right about Gordon and that Stella might need to make a life without him.

Ah, you admitted to being Kymber and not just RosemaryMarie 😛
Stella is soo pretty. And something is definitely really fishy about Gordon. But you still leave us with no answers, you cruel human being, haha.

RosemaryMarie March 14, 2018 - 9:47 pm

Yes! LOLOL I figured if everyone is calling me that, I should just use it. 😛 I even thought about switching my identity on wordpress to “Kymber” instead of “RosemaryMarie” but I didn’t want to confuse anyone.

I’m sorry for being cruel. :O You’re right about Gordon. If he’s not up to something bad, he needs to figure out soon that he’s risking losing his family.

Gordon is being so insensitive! I wonder if there’s another woman in the picture or something else that he isn’t willing/allowed to share with his wife… hmmm!
The baby is extra cute! <3 Watch out Gordon, or you'll lose them both!

RosemaryMarie March 14, 2018 - 9:49 pm

True dat. Gordon has no sensitivity whatsoever. I love Clementine. She’s a sweet baby. 😀 You’re very right to tell Gordon to get with it!

Jes2G March 14, 2018 - 11:41 am

This dude…

RosemaryMarie March 14, 2018 - 9:51 pm

Right? That’s my thought, too. lol

Clementine is such a pretty name. Gordon needs to get his act together. I know that in the 1920’s is wasn’t as easy for a wife to leave her husband as it is today (not that it is easy today either). But it is not impossible. The 20’s were also a time of freedom and new found independance for women!!
BTW: I love how you edited the first picture with just Stella in color and everyting else in B&W.

RosemaryMarie March 14, 2018 - 9:54 pm

I like the name Clementine, too. 🙂 Oh, boy, does Gordon need to get his act together. You’re so right about the 20s and how things were changing. 🙂 Stella really needs to decide what to do.

Thank you so much! <3 I was experimenting and liked how it turned it. :D

I’m with everyone else. Gordon, my man. What is your deal!?! I hope Mary figures it out for poor Stella. At least Gordon did one thing right. He made a gorgeous baby! 😀

RosemaryMarie March 14, 2018 - 9:57 pm

LOL Gordon, my man, get it together! 😛 I hope Mary does, too. Gordon did do that much! LOL

I love the name Clementine! I’m thinking, if she has the means to start her life over again…this might be the time. No father, is perhaps better than a grouchy, absent one for weeks at a time. Her emotional state will be better and she can focus on her little girl instead.

RosemaryMarie March 14, 2018 - 10:03 pm

I love that name, too, and it just really felt 1920-ish to me. Believe me, Stella has the means. All the money is hers. I’ve been playing this particular save for a really long time and she is quite wealthy in her own right. I agree with you about her her emotional state and focusing on her little girl. It might be a nice change for her.

bmitjessesue March 17, 2018 - 12:59 pm

I believe, if I was a single woman having a baby, I would name hers something special and cute like that! Husbands and their opinions on the name of the child….just ruin everything. I had some great ones for my kids…. 🙁

RosemaryMarie March 17, 2018 - 1:15 pm

Meeee, too! LOL It’s too bad they have to put their 2 cents in. 😛

bmitjessesue March 17, 2018 - 9:02 pm

hahahahahaha…off with the men!

Love this story set in the 1920s.

It was such a fascinating and interesting decade.

RosemaryMarie March 15, 2018 - 8:41 am

Thank you so much. I think it was a fascinating decade, too. 🙂

heatherfeather19 March 21, 2018 - 8:31 pm

I’m glad Stella confronted Gordon. It’s just too bad that Gordon doesn’t think he needs to change, even though having a baby would be the perfect reason for him to create a better bond with his wife. I don’t know if he is hiding anything or not, but Stella shouldn’t be alone for weeks on end with a newborn! Good thing she has Mary there now.

RosemaryMarie March 22, 2018 - 11:23 am

Thank you, Heather. I agree with you. Without Mary, I think Stella would not know what to do.

joliesattic March 23, 2018 - 2:50 pm

If I had her means, he’d be gone. Easy to say, huh? lol

RosemaryMarie March 23, 2018 - 5:37 pm

Right? I think I would be, too. I’m trying to follow what she wants to do and I’m getting a little impatient with her. lol

Is distrust just a human trait, that is as old as the seven daughters of Eve?

Very sadly, the pain of distrust is a costly monster to the one who bears it, whatever the truth.

It would seem that Gordon does not bear any part of that cost.

But, why don’t we, ‘wait and see’?

Love your style RosemaryMarie! Keep up the good work.

RosemaryMarie April 7, 2018 - 9:16 am

Thank you so much. 🙂 I really like what you said about distrust.

Wow I am so thrilled that you stopped and took time to like one of my recent posts, because then I was able to see what your blog is all about.

I love the story and the Sims imagery and now need to backtrack and catch up on what I have missed, and I agree Gordon needs to get his act together! 💖

Kymber July 1, 2018 - 7:16 am

Thank you so much for your kind words, Cheryl. 🙂 I really love your blog and decided to follow. I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stop here and I hope you will continue to like it. As for Gordon, you said it! 😀 <3

I thought it was very clever to weave Gordon’s nebulous intent into the story by starting out that Stella is due to deliver and she notices Gordon is extra attentive. Normally, a husband should be attentive to his pregnant wife but for Godon that is out of character and so the seeds of suspicion grow. The ladies are definitely on to ole groucy Gordon. This is story telling at its finest. You rock, Kymber!

Kymber August 20, 2018 - 1:01 pm

Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. I appreciate them a great deal.

Hyperion August 20, 2018 - 5:39 pm

My pleasure. 😊
