So there will be two posts today because I was able to do today's play as well and then rest long enough to be able to type again for a little bit.  At least the mental fogging makes me appreciate what I can do that much more, although I really would like to get a bit more playing in this evening if it is possible for me to do without completely exhausting my brain.

Still Friday:

Bought a yoga mat for him and a Kitesurf board because he wanted to try the Kitesurfing.  There are no instructions in the guide on how to do Kitesurfing so after he had a nap I sent him to the beach to try and figure it out.  To do Kitesurfing you have to have the Sim already swimming and the Kitesurf board in their personal inventory.  Once they are swimming, click on any of the icons that will take you into the menus where you can find all of the mood information as well as how they are doing on their lifetime wants.  Click on the second to last one on the right hand side (it looks like a backpack) and then find the Kitesurf board (I am still having a hard time navigating this area but I was eventually able to get to it).  Once you have selected it the Sim auto-pops onto the board and then you use the controller to navigate the same way you have him walk or run.  Best to do it where there is a lot of open water because my Sim kept running aground and I would have to start the process over.  Does improve Athletic skill.


Yoga and then to work

Staff Scheduling (good)
Broom Closet Nap (bad)
Employee Training (bad)
Towel Fabric Research (neutral)

Clean the manager's office

To Unlock:
Free Towels
Penthouse Cleaning
Order Extra Towels (says Supplies in the guide)

Sent him to do more Surfing and I got a pop-up telling me the Town had Evolved and that the Surf Shop had been upgraded.  All I can say is "what?"

Sunday (day off)

Handiness Class
Cooking Class
Someone he doesn't know died and he gets a -50 point moodlet, that is so unfair.

Monday (day off)

Was able to purchase the Fast Learner reward, the next one I am working towards is Never Dull.

Bought a Workout Bench he will probably never use because he wanted it.  Did the Charisma Opportunity "A Charming Experiment" and then sent him to a Charisma class.  The rest of the day I had him run around the town because with the Taxis you miss most of it; it is actually a pretty nice town, wish there was a way to copy it into the regular game.



Free Towels

Clean the manager's office (bad)
Free Towels (very bad, nearly lost the promotion I was set to get at the end of the day, fortunately was able to do enough of the Staff Scheduling to make up the deduction).

Promotion received!  Still haven't figured out how to "find" stuff but maybe if I wait to try and play again after Kevin gets home from work I can ask him to help me figure it out, he is usually much better at those kind of things in games.
