We were going to have his little celebration with just us but just before he blew out the candles, our cousin Zebulon came in the door and joined us. Amon did not mind. He made his wish and blew out his candles. Finally he was entering his teen years!
I got home right after my brother had finished his dinner. I guess he was more of a slob than I knew, because I snapped a picture of him 'cleaning the dishes' in his own special way. I just rolled my eyes and went up to my room. Today was my birthday but I had asked Mother not to do anything about it. I was getting to old for parties and it did not matter to me.
I also told Mother that I planned to move out tomorrow. She cried for a while, but said she knew this was coming. She actually told me that she had place a lot of money in a savings account that she was giving to me when I decided to go. She handed me a key to the family storage, and a check for nearly 30,000 simoleans. I tried to refuse it, but she insisted I take the money and whatever I wanted from storage. We hugged, then both went to bed.
