I'm really into music, playing and listening. I play the flute and piano, and have been for about 9 years. My music preferences are very wide, I will listen to almost everything, even not a huge fan of rap and country but I can handle a little of each. I'm really into animals and have been a vegetarian for 2 years. I have one cat named Scooter. I have absolutely the best friends in whole entire world and I'm not sure where I would be without them and my mom. Also when I'm not playing sims you can find me on Clubpogo (sn CowboySnoop). My favorite tv show is Gilmore Girls, but I also like Everwood, American Idol, Scrubs, One Tree Hill, Will and Grace, The Bedford Diaries, 4 Kings, The Loop, Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Alias.

Kirkendall Round 1

Well not much you can do with one teen raising 2 toddlers and a child, so not much happened. Darcy and Jacquan grew up well, were only potty trained but they were happy. Temperance grew into a teen, and rolled fortune *LTW Own 5 Top Rated Business's*. Esmond did awful in school, not really sure how that happened, but when I left the lot he had a D- in school, so he won't be going off to univeristy with the rest of the CAS teen's, I will have him wait another week and go with Temperance, which leaves the boys at home, ugh I hope they don't roll romance. Hm... anything else... I don't think so, oh well Esmond has a crush on Miles Upton, which totally wasn't planned but funny.

Corcoran Round 1

Honestly after playing the Potts family last time, I mainly played this lot on 2x speed just because she was soooo much easier, so not that much went on, she didn't go downtown to look for a husband, but she did manage to get herself knocked up twice *hey she's not married, so yes knocked up*, plus it wasn't even the same man, but both were fellow fellowshipers, you will find out one of them this week, but you will have to wait until the next update for the other. I will do more about getting her married next week, but I'm not sure I'm going to let her have kids with them, I have this thing about wanting all her kids to have different fathers, not really sure why.. but we will see how that plays out.

I started this week right off the bat with getting Corky a job in the Military career track (it was just the highest paying job at the moment) on the first day, since I already had heard the little lullaby. The second I got on Corky's lot she called up Marshall for a date, and well lets just say it ended up with her running for the bathroom the next morning. Oh and also it broke up Marshall and Layce, since she happened to walk by when they were making out on the lawn (since the welcome wagon was inside her house). So from the point Marshall left, to when she went into labor I played it on 2x.

Little Caitlin was born on Thursday. She grew to toddler on Saturday, and learned how to talk and was potty trained by Sunday. Also she has 3 points in Charisma.

Corky was needing a little mood booster on Sunday afternoon afterwork, and desperately wanted to add to her little family, so she called up another friend she had met a few weeks back when she was at the Pott's business. They had a good time and Corky was feeling much better, and was excited again when she found herself running for the bathroom yet again the next morning.

Corky had 1 or 2 promotions, since a job isn't really important to her, I didn't really pay attention, I just need her to be bringing in a little money for them.

That was basically it, you will find out who the father of the baby is when it is born during her next round!

Main Page

Hi! Over at the Prosperity Challenge yahoo group some people decided to start a group prosperity, and the Fellowship is what they got out of it, with 13 base families. You can read all about it, or download and play along with us at Wen's Prosperity Page.

How I'm playing this challenge

Round 1

Potts Round 1

Here we have Alexandria, her child Ryan, and her four toddlers Logan, Luke, Lilly and Lydia

All the toddlers grew up well into children even though they didn't learn any skills, but they were semi happy. I actually only used a nanny for a few hours, because she wasn't any help she just kept getting bottles out of the fridge and nothing else, and besides them being untrained things went pretty well.

Alex finally got a job in her preferred career, the medical tract, on Thursday, and has had a few promotions. Also Matthew switched from Slacker to Medical also, after he realized he wanted to d more with he's life instead of just partying, and follow he's life long dream of becoming chief of staff.

On the first day of school for all 5 kids, she taught all of them to study.

She then decided she needed a husband to help her out, she wanted the boys to grow up with a male influence *not that anythings wrong with this, but the boys liked the doll house a little to much*. So she went downtown to the bowling alley, and met Matthew Cho. They hit it off really well, and even went on a date at this place, and ended up having a dream date. The next day she called him up and invited him over for a date at her house *the kids were home from school, but I kept them busy either studying or sleeping so that mommy could have some "me time"*. They had another dream date, and both had wants to marry each other, so they did, and he brought §70,000 *yup she bagged Mr. Big*, and right after went to work.

I decided to do a little experiment on this family so I had Matthew start a community lot business *my first*, and got it to rank 10 (but not sure if its still there.. explain that in a second)

Ok on Sunday morning, at 2 am, Alex got home from her job, so Matthew decided to go to he's business since she could watch the kids. Well he got home and she started yelling and waving her arms and the camera kept zooming in.. hm.. but nothing so I change where I'm viewing, then 2 sec.'s later same thing, so yes she was pregnant but the first bump wouldn't come out. After various moving in and out of different places, and I think I'm going to have to delete her, I move them back into the main house (I figured if I had to get rid of her might as well put other back in the other house), and you know what?? The bump was there!!! So I'm so excited, the week was restarted to Monday at 8 am, so I'm just going to leave them there, so I lose a day, but I figure I can deal with that, because if I play it another day I'll just get off some other round down the road. So yup yup that was my week. Off to Corky's house, muchhhhh easier week this time.

Yessam Round 1

I started my week at the Yessam's, so I could just get my feet wet in the fellowship, not to easy and not extremely hard.

In this house we find Mamma J, her daughter Jenn, and her son-in-law Rich.

I'm not really sure what this family spent their money on, but they were constantly almost in the hole, but I finally got them enough to buy a poker table and open a business. Mamma J was the first to get a job, in the Science career, and was fired on her first day on the job, for taking something off of the burner. But went out and got a job in the Atletic career track, and has had 1 promotion, she is now a Locker Room Attendent. Jenn was a second to get a job, in the Law Enforcement track, and has had 2 promotions, and is now a Patrol Officer. Rich finally got into the Culinary track on Saturday, and has had 1 promotion, and is now a Drive Thru Clerk.

On the 2nd day I decided to try and have Mamma J, change her aspiration, she rolled Family *thank god*, and now has a LTW of 6 grandchildren *completely doable*. That same day Rich called and adopted a child, a little girl named Elle. Plus Jenn gave birth to Grace on Thursday, and is now pregnant again, on her 2nd bump. Mamma J, taught Grace how to talk, and potty trained her, since I had Rich busy trying to skill *since he was out of work so long*, and Jenn was busy either pregnant or trying to get as many promotions as possible before her 2nd child was born.

Also Mamma J instantly had a connection with Howie Busto when he was part of the welcome wagon, and had a dream date with him. But they are not going to get married, I really want him to have he's own children, and we can all guess why that is, even though I'm one of those ones that hates having ugly children, but I think I can make an exception for that family just because it is so funny.

Start Up

I downloaded Prosperity on my main computer after reading all of your blogs, but never got it started, and now my main computer has gone to computer heaven, so I lost my first prosperity group. I was only going to put Sims 2 base game on my main computer, and then realized I'd miss uni, so put that in, then realized I had to have the chemistry part so put that on, and was just playing around lightly so I didn't have withdrawls. Well then for my birthday my mom got me FFS, which I was going to wait until I got another computer, but of course I couldn't, plus the patch had just come out so I couldn't resist. Then I started reading Wen's and Alexis's fellowship again, and got the itch all over again, so finally I put OFB in this computer. So now I have all of the packs, and have started the Fellowship again, grr *I blame all of you lol*. Well since my graphics card is awful on this computer *even though its brand new*, and my sims can be a pain sometimes *not the lots except the picture part, just the neighborhood view, goes all gray sometimes so I have a hard time getting on the lots*, I'm not taking picture or anything sorry, it gets to buggy. So this is mainly just going to be an overview, more for my benefit then anyone elses, but you are welcome to follow along.
