On What is Up?:

1. The Annual Internet ‘Thankfulness Tea Party’ is coming up on Saturday or Sunday, (take your pick) of this up coming weekend. You are all invited. Just a reminder so you can have what you need on hand. Food, drink, music, paper and pen, and Time set aside to write the things you are thankful for. Theme, friends and family are optional, but always fun.

I go all out with a lace and linen table cloth and napkins, flowers and doilies, Victorian style tea party. But as I’ve been doing this for decades I would never expect anyone else to go that far.

2. I’ve gotten back on the exercise band wagon and worked off one of those 10 pounds already. Hard work using only my upper body.

3. My knee is still healing. I bumped it the other day and it swelled up again. I can walk carefully on it for a half an hour a day now. Still not up to exercise speed, but some is better then none.

Oh, and I have my sense of smell back. You don’t know how much you use it until it is gone.

4. Carl’s The Sims 3 Guide & Walkthrough http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com has given me my sanity and my Sims 3 game back. It was a Windows 7 problem I was having. Apparently the game was made before there was a Windows 7 so they are not as compatible as hoped. His guide helped me configure things so I can now play the game. Why couldn’t EA Games do that?

I’m still having trouble with it crashing when there is a mirror on the lot, but other then that I’m doing good. If I sneak up on them from behind and delete them I’m good to go. Some of the houses I need to go into when traveling have been a challenge but do-able if I keep the mirrors off screen as I play.

And there are Mummies! Lots of Mummies in Egyptian tombs. (Some in China and France.) And I now know how to have my Sims be turned into a mummy too.

Thank you Carl wherever in the world you may be. My frugal self was having a problem with spending any amount of money on a game that didn’t work and risked damaging my computer at the same time.

Yay! Glad to see you have your Sims 3 back--and with mummies. I am going to the store tomorrow to get food for my tea party--so very excited!
