Since Jason is at the top of his career now, he gets to spend a lot more time at home. He and Krysten are eating breakfast here while the kids have gone to school.

boomer644

I took this picture just to point and laugh at you.

Bonnie: “That’s depressing.”

boomer645

It’s time to put the bear down, Opal. We’re your friends. We’re saying this because we care.

boomer646

Another breakfast together.

boomer647

More gardening because I’m just so happy that it’s working. 😭

boomer648

Jason’s summer lewk.

boomer649

Calling all units, we’ve got another school bus blockage in action. Requesting backup.

boomer650

Bonnie loses her job with a bad chance card.

boomer651

Doesn’t matter to me since she’s already topped it and is an overachiever.

boomer652

I thought politics would be a great career for Krysten since she’s been skilling her charisma. She’s hired on at level 5.

boomer653

So Jason quits.

boomer654

Bonnie: “I thought it would finally be my time to shine! Then stupid Dustin Broke puts on the Limpy costume! He doesn’t even care about the mascot art!!!”

Benji: “I think I know just the thing to cheer you up.”

boomer655

Benji: “Slap the butt! No?”

boomer656

Barty: “Watch this, Mom!”

boomer657

boomer658

boomer659

Barty grows up pretty happily.

boomer660

His friend Bim also ages up.

boomer661

And here he is with some transparent hair.

boomer662

Benji wouldn’t age up on his own, so he gets a cake.

Benji: “Why are you still wearing that?”

Bonnie: “Just let me have this for the rest of the day.”

boomer663

boomer664

boomer665

He feels great about it, and GO AWAY HOBBY PEEPS.

boomer666

I wanted to give him some glasses, but they’re all transparent oh heccin hell.

boomer667

Now that Jason has quit his job, he can finally work on that novel that he started writing before Bernard was born.

boomer668

These two get some woohoo in before Krysten’s carpool shows up on her first day of work.

Both: “For LUCK!”

boomer669

Benji copies Bonnie’s painting because she’s more skilled and he’s trying to learn.

boomer670

Why aren’t you getting in the carpool?!!! This is the same thing that happened with Brylee. I also tried to get her to use their car to go to work, but she wouldn’t get in it either and it seemed to glitch the car.

boomer671

And we’ve just put the finishing touches on the other fixer upper. Coincidence???? I have no idea, help!

So I quit without saving.

boomer672

Jason: “Well, hello there. Welcome to the bathroom.”

Jason’s intense eyes got me like… 🤤

Anyway, I only lost a few in-game hours. But we’ve gone back to before the fixer upper was finished.

boomer673

So let’s sell this, because it’s my best guess as to what is causing problems.

boomer674

Woohoo again.

Both: “For LUCK!”

boomer675

And she still wouldn’t get in the carpool. 😰

boomer676

So to stay in their good graces, she just called in sick.

boomer677

While Jason is actually sick.

boomer679

boomer681

I had her quit and then cheated her into the same position. Idk what I’m doing, and since it’s Friday I won’t know if this worked for a few days UGH.

boomer678

Oh yeah, Benji has an A+, but who cares?

boomer680

Thanks Audrey! (I remember her name because she just keeps showing up.)

boomer682

boomer683

Bonnie ages up in the middle of painting.

boomer684

She feels OK about it.

Bonnie: “Fix my outfit, NOW.”

boomer685

Baylie ages up with no cake necessary.

boomer686

She’s horribly disappointed.

boomer688

But with some help from the therapist, she’s feeling better about life.

boomer687

I’ve always thought of Bonnie as our little princess, ever since she wouldn’t stop whining as an infant for no fucking reason because your mood was green, Bonnie! What the hell did you want?! I just want to know… *ahem* So I tried to go for a princess-y lewk.

Melody Tinker seems to like what she sees. Still a chick magnet.

boomer689

And Baylie’s got an I-hate-everyone-and-want-to-only-interact-with-dogs-for-a-living lewk.

Honestly same.
