Historical Sim (11/11)

  1. Today I was able to go up and down the stairs the same way as before my fall. It's wobbly but at least I can do that. Unfortunately there is no lessening of the throbbing, or the shooting pains, or the pain in general. I am exhausted because I cannot get a good night's sleep as the shooting and stabbing pains keep me awake. Jake has taken to sleeping in his dog bed that is underneath my desk. He is sticking to me quite closely and checking on me a lot. The new friend I thought I'd made, yeah she hasn't ever contacted me, so I guess that's a bust. Walking around is still a challenge because my left leg isn't very stable and goes wonky from time to time. It has made carrying food from the kitchen to my desk a challenge. I have dropped what I made onto the floor and Jake is more than happy to get an unexpected meal. It simply doesn't occur to him that he is eating MY meal. On the bright side he does a very impressive clean up of any accidental droppage of food. He just goes into hoover mode and the mess disappears. His version of care is so sweet, he gently licks around the bruised area of my right knee, careful to never lick the actual bruised part. How he knows not to touch that area is a mystery to me. Every once in a while, while he is in his dog bed, under my desk, he will reach out with a paw and gently place that paw on my right foot. I do believe that he knows how much that gesture touches my heart. When I do need to lay down, he's taken to bringing a ball upstairs into my bed that he pushes under my chin. He doesn't want to play with the ball, he just wants to make sure his favourite toy is close to me and that he is sharing it with me for comfort. He insists on a full face cleaning and then nods off. I need to now.
  2. And just when I thought things were as bad as they were going to get....guess what??? On my right side, from my hip to my waist, it has also been completely bruised. I'm kinda like a very dark coloured rainbow. A rather ugly coloured rainbow to boot. I wondered why my side was also having shooting pains. Now I know! I hope there are no more surprises. I'm about at the end of my rope.
  3. Well things took a turn for the worse. My left foot has some kind of injury as well and putting weight on that foot in order to get around is very painful. It also makes going up and down the stairs an exercise in determination for me. Food is downstairs on the main floor, bedroom and bathroom are on the upper floor. Jake is having a difficut time as well as he is so upset whenever I cry from either pain or frustration. It's a tad bit difficult right now to try and maintain my wacky sense of humour.
  4. I have searched everywhere but cannot find the cord I need to transfer the photos on my phone to my laptop. Then I tried to get facebook on my cell phone, again I couldn't get that figured out. In any case, the photos I have of my injuries from today might be a wee bit too graphic, which was why I tried to get my cell phone to have facebook on it.
  5. 3 years ago I had a very bad fall going up the stairs in my home. Today, 2 hours ago I had another horrible fall outside in the parking lot at the shoppers drugmart, after getting my booster shot. My elbow is horribly scraped and my knee is scraped in a couple of spots and is horrifically bruised pretty much entirely. My knee and elbow are also throbbing pretty much non stop. I had made some great progress in going up and down the stairs but now all that progress is completely lost. A lot of people immediately came to help me after the fall, some woman looked after Jake, while others struggled with assisting me to get into our truck. It was not an easy task as my knee kept giving out, but eventually they did get me into the truck. I made a new friend though. Heather refused to leave my side until Dave could get out to the truck. He was inside getting his booster shop and had no idea what had happened to me. Although Heather probably had errands she was running, she put everything on hold just to stay with me. We talked a lot and discovered we have many things in common and we exchanged names and numbers. Yes, I have been crying a lot, but this is very painful, constantly throbbing with the occasional stabbing pains shooting through both my elbow and my knee. I ask that you keep me in mind while you pray and for some more patience for uploads. I actually had 4 outfits all ready, but sitting at my laptop is just too uncomfortable right now. Thank you for your prayers and continued patience. May God bless each and everyone of you. With Love MissionMouse
  6. OH MY GOSH!!!! I just found out that my next door neighbour works for a freah food delivery service. He has no idea we are about to become besties!! And NO, not for free things, it's just going to be so awesome that I can order foods that I like without Dave grouching. I like my vegetables, Dave not so much. I like different fruits than Dave. This is just so awesome cause I can order things without asking Dave to make a grocery run just for stuff I like!
  7. I have an excellent paid virus protection installed and I have it set up to scan my laptop on a daily basis. It does have a free version but because I upload things for others to download, I take that as my responsibility to provide a download that is virus free. It was recommended to me by an IT professional when I was discussing with him what I did. Turned out this guy's wife is a huge Sims 2 fan and was jealous that he knew *MissionMouse* Now this was a hilarious situation because I was overwhelmed to find I actually had *fans* He called his wife from his workplace and told her he had a surprise for her and then put the phone on speaker phone. That was the most hilarious phone call I have ever had. She kept saying, "NO, you are not MissionMouse" and I kept saying "I can't believe I have fans" To prove to her I was who I said I was, I told her what my next 2 uploads would be. Only thing was, I forgot to ask her what was her name.
  8. I got rid of it!!!! Stupid thing is called a *Preview Pane* If you click on that button, that extended section disappears!!! I had no idea it was called something.
  9. No Alet, it happens with every folder I have. It really ticks me off when I am in Sims2 Bodyshop and I have the projects file open, and also the files where I have all my recolours to make my new stuff so I can upload it. It's made my files all a tad bit smaller so that darn thing at the end is also a part of what I open. I can still make my stuff in Bodyshop, it's just that this extra space that I hate. When I looked into it, it was explained that this is *Windows File Explorer* Now it can be turned off, BUT you lose necessary files, so turning it off is not an option. There is not an option to hide that extended part. At least not one that I could find.
  10. The first picture--it says 18 items. This is how my folders look when I open them. This just happened today and I have googled and googled for a way to get that end section to disappear. I can't find anything that helps me and this is seriously messing me up. It is an entirely separate section and even though it has a divider, that divider cannot be moved. I did NOT downlaod anything, nor have I updated windows 10. This XXXX thing has just appeared out of nowhere and I HATE IT!!! 🤬 The second picture is the beginning of that folder, and the first picture is the end of the folder. I cut out the middle of the folder. I am so fed up with trying to fix this and getting nowhere.
  11. I thought that as well Rebecah, but there arre some files that for some reason when I try to resize them from 1024 to 512 automatically crash my paint program. I'll figure it out eventually, I just don't know what happened to change things like that.
  12. Good Grief, I got the game working, but now Bodyshop has gone bonkers. I have googled everything I can think of but it doesn't help me to do what I want to do. All of my SIms2 bodyshop files used to come up as 512 X 512. Now they don't, they come up as 1024 X 1024. I prefer them at 512 X 512. There is a fix for making them all 1024, but not one for making them 512. After two days of trying to figure this out, the lightbulb finally turned on for me. I just replace the *other* files with 512 that I already have. There is a piece of information that has to do with changing some numbers in the *configue* place, but they only change the size to 1024. I'm curious to see if I change those 3 settings to be all 2 or all 3, instead of all to be 0, what will happen. If I try to be brave and try that I may come back looking like a burnt Sim. It might be a huge disaster, but I'll probably have a funny story to share.
