Karen is pregnant and it seems like she has been that way for some time now, The Fall has passed and winter has begun. No Crops to be harvested, except for the occasional bumper cash crop of pineapples in the Hothouse that pumps up my balance of G. However a flock of 10 chickens and a barn filled to bursting with Cows and Sheep are daily tasks that keep me busy in real time, as time stops whilst indoors in Harvest Moon. They are quite a job to take care of, yet I cannot bear to sell them. The products from my animals I now mostly ship as raw and unmade, as there is no real need for me to earn money. I think that I am already a millionaire farmer who has no worry for cash. Whereas I would never previously nave bought food at the inn, now, I'm a regular customer whenever I pass by!
Anyway back to original reason for this post about whiling away the Winter. I want Karen to give birth as quickly as possible and I have resorted to going to bed as early as 6:30 am! (This just to make time pass as quickly as possible so that I can begin playing as a girl). Karen must think I'm nuts, but then again, she's also not too sane, as she pleads with her unborn child to stop tormenting her. I think that the end of the pregnancy is near, and I shall start contemplating what name I shall give the child when its born. I am truly curious as to its gender too!
