I managed to take advantage of someone's unguarded picnic basket to get a free and filling meal. Every penny I don't have to spend counts.
Suddenly, it was my birthday. I invited everyone I know plus a few people showed up that I didn't know. But it was such a great party that they were *all* my friends by the end.
Since I'd really love 20 friends, this was a great discovery for me. Good party + gate crasher == new friend.
Good thing I'm a legendary party host. Otherwise the guests might have complained about the dishes or me.
River can't seem to help herself. She's always cleaning when she visits. It seems to make her happy so if that's what she wants to do.
We both had fun doing this.
I finally managed to afford a double bed and so River could spend the night. My first fantasy book is worth 818 each week for 6 weeks. My bank account with the Sunday royalties went up to 2,900 Simoleons.
I still paint from time to time. It's far more fun then writing.
The guests are queuing up for the next party. I don't know Cyclone or Christopher but I will before they leave.
It's odd how parties can go. This one was another epic, even though the guests spent forever just standing around. When this party was done, I had acquired enough friends to make my life goal.
To celebrate, I proposed to River.
And she accepted.
It's so great to have River around.
Mum, I know you wanted me to wait until I had enough money to properly care for a family. But I failed. I asked River to move in with me. She brought in 5000 Simoleons and she has a job as a journalist so she earns regular money. That wasn't a lot of money and
we've spent most of it on a computer and desk so I can work here instead of the library. Plus River took a class so she'll be better at her job now. Oh, and we got a nicer bed. Much better.
