Even with Kevin's help we weren't able to get very far with the guide because it turns out it has lots of errors in it (the work days for Tourism are off for one) and so now I don't feel like I can trust the information.  Kevin did help me decide what order to purchase the LifeTime Rewards which I had spent at least four hours on previously trying to sort out but was constantly finding myself unable to focus.  Today the focus isn't too horrible so I will be trying to play again soon, but first I am going through YouTube and finding videos for some of my favorite songs and adding them to my favorites list so I can set them as a playlist and then queue them up before playing the game; music frequently helps to keep me going and in a good mood when my head starts to go down so it is always good to have it available, particularly if I am going to be doing something that requires concentration.

Kevin also helped me sort out my computer desk/coffee table to make it easier for me to see the screen and the birds in the backyard at the same time along with being able to actually reach the things I typically need like notepaper and pencils.  One of the things we have learned with the mental fogging is it really helps to have things organized well so that even if I am really confused that day I can still find what I need and that it is in an obvious place and easy to reach.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Still Wednesday:

After the promotion to level 2 in the Tourism career I sent Alex off to the burger joint in the game Big Surf Burger.  Because I was trying to score 5,000 LifeTime Reward points I bought him a Chess Table and then set him to painting because he needed something to relieve stress.

Thursday:

The easel glitched and he could not use it.  I could move it and then put it back and it would work for one painting but then he couldn't use it again and he could not sell the painting directly from the easel.  I eventually sold it and then re-bought it because he does need it to help with improving his invisible room score.  It was still glitching so I moved it outside and that actually seems to have fixed it.  I am not sure if it was something else in the room blocking it or maybe that specific spot is glitched.  Fortunately the game allows for only 50 days in one game so hopefully it will not kill game play.  I may move some of the other furniture around to the other two "rooms".

Then I had him go to the museum and the library because they were easy wishes to get more points and finally had enough for Steel Bladder which was the first one I wanted to get off my list of rewards.

Sent Alex to work for his first day at level 2, had him do one of each task that was open to see what effect each had on his boss and coworker relationships so I could pick the one that would help the coworker and not hurt the boss score.

Fold brochures (ended up being the winner because it actually made both happy, which the guide does not indicate)
Flick paper clips (the bad choice)
Answer the phone
Hospitality Training

The ones to open were:
Write flashy report
Casino night
Web agency Selection
Sandwich man

After the work shift he was massively stressed (he actually had the moodlet Overworked) so I sent him to the pool behind the hotel and had him dance at the stereo and he talked to one of his coworkers (might have been his boss, not sure).

Friday:

Took the Logic class and then he was 6 minute late for work.

Had him Fold brochures until he unlocked Write flashy reports, then had him do that one and boom he got promoted.  I wasn't expecting the second promotion to come about faster than the first promotion, but I am not going to complain.

Ended game play for the day while I try and decide how I want to move the furniture around (I am thinking the bedroom is going to go in the second floor room and the non-kitchen/non-bathroom other stuff will go in the smaller of the two rooms on the ground floor since the kitchen takes up so much room and I want to keep it in the same room as the dinning and bath.  I may add a wall and door for the bathroom, but I am not sure yet.
