We are mainly sims2 players/modders - though I did create for sims3 a LOOOOONG time go it did not hold my interest. Most of us are hanging about waiting for sims4.
PS : Welcome to leefish
There's one thing I feel needs to be said. Raising a family is an incredibly powerful way to validate your own existence, but so is bettering yourself. Both are ways to give life meaning. Both are extremely worthy life goals.
Adding to your knowledge base through study is a way to increase your value for yourself, your family and friends, your entire community. Doing so after having been a mother to four children, at an age where most people would say "I've done my bit for king and country", is brave and commendable. There's nothing selfish about it! The selfish people our age would sit down and say "I'm done. Now it's time for me, for hobbies, fun, etc." But YOU say "I'm not done, I can do more!"
POWER TO YOU, Lynda. I'm proud of you!
