I made another basement level just for the hamper, old fridge and dirty clothes piles. It makes me really wish I hadn't bought a car the first day because then I could build one story up. Now that the kids are growing up Mom has nothing to do because she had to quit her job. I am having her spend all her time stocking the fridge. But darnit if I don't pay attention to her she is trying to get on the computer and make an inappropriate forum post!
Now to the bad news. Dad was 2 days from going elder when I decided to use my one time 10 day age freeze. He doesn't have any athletic so he wouldn't have been able to continue work. At that point he was level 8 in his career. Right now he's level 9 and his charisma and logic suck. I don't know if I'm going to be able to get education finished in time! If not I'm going to be sooooo mad! I know where I made my mistake. I spent so much time keeping his hygiene up and not keeping his friendships up and increasing logic.
As far as the age freeze goes I couldn't find any information on it online except that you can do it for the one time. I was confused on what to do as far as the kids aging. So what I did was wrote down the days each would age during the freeze and am aging them. I have lifted culinary so I am allowed to use the cake. If I did this wrong oh well. I would have been stuck with a baby, 2 toddlers and 2 children. At least this way the kids can up their skills even though I don't know what skills they will need for their jobs. So that's where I am now. Praying Dad gets promoted in the next week and skilling up the smelly kids like crazy.
