Just wanted to drop a quick note (from work no less) to apologize for the long absence.  I had every intention to keep things moving along with this attempt but it's all feel apart on me.

I have played the Blaze family (well over a month ago now) but I never managed to get it posted.  I purchased a new computer.  A new computer is a wonderful thing...unless you are going from windows 7 to windows 10 and you can't find anything and you get frustrated easily and you want to throw something.  I installed origins and downloaded the sims 2 & 4.  I got my excel loaded so my spreadsheets would work.  I can no longer sim without my spreadsheets.  I gave up on real paper notebooks ages ago as I always seemed to spill something on them or leave them in a spot the dogs could get at.  Apparently notebooks make good dog toys.  Who knew?  Since I have only a couple of mods/fixes on TS4 and hardly any custom content, I got the sims 4 transferred over quickly.  I had absolutely every intention of following that up by transferring over the sims 2.  But my sims 2 download folder is massive (compared to TS4) and so I put it off.  And put it off.  And put it off.  And here I am a month down the road and I still haven't put the files on a flash drive and moved them over.  It's not like it would take long if I'd just get off my duff and do it but I haven't.  And now I've heard horror stories about people having to fiddle with the settings to get TS2 to work (graphics wise) with windows 10 and it doesn't make me want to start it.  I kind of miss my simmies but I've been playing TS4 so I don't miss them so much that I've gotten the job done.

Anyway (yes I'm aware I'm rambling now, I tend to do that) I really do have every intention of getting this done, hopefully this weekend, and trying to get a post up for the Blaze family since I have already played them anyway.  Things are getting busy here at work, which is my excuse for everything this time of the year, but I am going to try to get this done.  For those who don't know, I am an accountant by trade at a farmers cooperative in the great state of Alabama.  It really does start to turn into a madhouse once spring arrives and it has arrived here in the south.  Folks are spreading fertilizer and planting seed and we are the ones who sell them all that.  My work life will be busy from now until September.  I used to love the spring/summer but that was before I took this job.

So anyway, I have not fallen off the face of the earth.  I have also not kept up with everyone else's blogs (unless you email them in which case I have managed to read them on my phone).  Hope everyone else is having a lovely spring.  Happy simming everyone.  I hope you will see more of me soon.  (Huge apologies in advance if you don't.  I'm such a stinking procrastinator.)
