This will be a pictureless update until I can either figure out how to compress the images for the game play on the Mac to be around the same size they are on the PC or until I can dig out my thumb drive and copy them over to the PC and convert them there since the file sizes are around a mega byte when I take them and I really have to drop the visual quality a lot more than I normally do in order to bring them in line with the file size of the images I normally upload.

Now for the update:

I have taken some pictures of the house, those will be the first thing I post once I get them uploaded, so at least I can say I didn't forget to do that.

On Monday, Zac's first day of work he met Molly French after work and they seemed to hit it off really well.  I think she already has a child in game, but is single so this may be his one true love.  Although, because I generally do not enjoy playing the children, even though I think the toddlers are cute, I think I will wait until her little one is at least a child before asking her to move in if I decide to go that route.

On Tuesday, Zac got a promotion!  Yeah, we can buy that bookcase he has been drooling over.

On Wednesday, he rolled the want for a second bookcase.?  We don't even have the first one full, why would he need a second bookcase?

On Thursday, remembered to plant the apple and lettuce plants from the fridge, just one of each, he still had some left over so he would not starve, I am trying to avoid quick meals even though they cost nothing and are "quick".

On Friday, he rolled the want for another bookcase again.  I know he is a bookworm but this seems a bit silly, the first still just has the books it came with because he is too poor to afford anything else, although I did finally invest in a sofa.  He also got one more promotion before the weekend hit.  If I remember I will post images of his two uniforms he has worn so far.

On Saturday, he invited Molly French over and they are now dating.  It probably helps that she is Flirty because they weren't even friends yet and she was letting him makeout with her.  Hopefully she will not mind being strung along for a while, while I wait for her kid to age up; I really need to have him go over and meet her child so I can monitor when she ages more easily.

Well, that was one week since the week started on a Sunday.  Next week, attempt to actually take that writing class he keeps rolling the want for and meet Molly's daughter.  Not too worried about the skilling just yet, I'm playing on Epic so he has plenty of time. 
If it helps at all, if Molly and her daughter come around and he buys a birthday cake then it will be possible to get the daughter to age up early. (I'm sure this will work - I recently had an 'accident' with the cake and aged up someone well before they should have).

It's amusing about the bookcases. Maybe he is ultimately planning on having his own library and is sorting out the shelving now?

I hope that you are enjoying get back into it.
Thank you for the reminder of that, hopefully I will still remember when I get impatient and decide he is ready to be an adult before his birthday rolls around. I've done that before when a failed Legacy start founder started stalking a child. Fortunately the child turned teen by the next time she saw him but every want that rolled was about this teen. So I aged him up on her lot so she could actually date him because they were already at 100/100 friendship and it was getting creepy. I want to keep him on his own for a while because I have a hard time keeping multi-Sim homes alive frequently, mainly because all Sims 3 family have massive gardens by the end of the first week and I am trying to keep his from getting to big but big enough that he doesn't need to shop for food. I was also smart and remembered to set the sprinklers at the beginning of the gardening instead of forgetting until he was able to upgrade them, so they will just be on all of the time until he can upgrade them.

The bookcase thing was ridiculous, every time I cleared it, it would come up again a few Sim hours later.

So far so good, I just have to take it slow and not worry too much about the pictures. I'll eventually get them sorted out but since this is more about playing to get back in the habit of playing, I don't feel the need to photograph every little thing he does. Once I get back to my Suichi Legacy and my Sims 2 projects, then I will have photograph overload going on ;-)
Your enjoyment is more important that pictures, I like that you talk about what you are doing. Not having a friend in r/l who plays, I appreciate people like you, on lj, who share - in whatever way.

I'm with you about being creepy, the attraction that your failed Legacy founder had with a child. Logically, I know they are just pixels but I sort of see them as having a life of their own and I'd not be totally happy.

I had problems with all the adults in the Gemstones being devoted to the sprinklers, out in their bathing suits dancing in the water spray, to the neglect of the children. I'm hoping that this was just related to their personalities and that not every sim will have sprinkler fetish. I'd be interested to hear if you have a problem keeping Zac away.
I have lost many a family member to sprinklers, but now I know that whenever someone has left the action I told them to do that they have most likely gone out to have some fun in the water. I actually have been directing Zac to go play in them as soon as he gets home from work because his fun drops rather quickly, once I think it is green enough I'll send him to eat and then to bed. Children are the worst with the sprinklers because I have had a couple nearly fail school due to too much sprinkler dancing time.
