House 002 Chapter 1

Mindy Rover looked over her new grassy lot with excitement.  After all these years of hearing her daddy Brock’s stories about how he started out with nothing she had been eager to do the same.  As soon as she had the candles blown out on her cake she said her farewells and made her way to Willow Creek.  Everything was so green here.  She loved it already!

The first sim she notices is the gardener.  It’s an old elderly lady.  When the lady sees her she gets a surprised look on her face and leaves shortly after.

She forgot to use the restroom before she left the house and starts gathering collectables to sell as soon as she can find them, hoping she won’t lose control of her batter before she has enough money for a pee bush.

While she’s at it, she collects frogs as well.  Daddy Brock swears by frog breeding being a good source of income.

Her Dad Emerson shows up and doesn’t seem too thrilled to see her empty lot.  He just doesn’t understand.

She manages to get a pee bush in time but by then she’s starving.  There are no more collectables so she fishes and jackpot!  She lands a big salmon worth almost enough for a cooler of food!

She’s stinky but she’s happy.  She knows it’s only a matter of time before she gets herself a shower.

Luckily there’s a park bench by the garden area near her house.  She surely doesn’t want to nap in her pee bush!

In the morning, all of the collectables are up and she sells them and makes more than enough for her shower.

Luckily she has enough left to pay the bills when they arrive.  She wonders why the mail lady is making that face? It seems like all of the service sims are leery of her for some reason.

The next day she has enough money for a tent.  Things are really looking up.

She had originally planned to seek a job when she moved to her empty lot but after considering the different jobs available she feared she would not have time to fulfill her lifetime dream of being a herbalist.  So she decided to plant a huge garden instead.  This was a tough choice since she could have sold the plants that she put in the ground, but she tried looking at it as an investment in the future.

She was feeling lonely and hungry, tired of the food in her cooler, so she called a pizza delivery service.  The delivery boy practically threw the pizza at her, giving her a worried look, wouldn’t talk to her and ran away.  She was really beginning to worry about these service sims.

Thankfully, the pizza was delicious.

TS4_x64 2016-06-16 18-51-46-74

She invested more plants into her garden.  Hopefully, they would be harvestable soon.

When she got lonely this time instead of ordering pizza she called her little brother Keith and invited him to visit her for the day.  They had lots of fun chatting about everything happening at her old house.

Chapter 002.2

Chapter notes:

I have no idea why I decided to go more story-style when writing this.  Nothing was planned out… all of the service sims had those goofy looks on their faces when I noticed them and paused the game to get a shot of them!  It makes it kinda funny though.  This is only four days.  I’m thinking she’s done well already.  Too bad all of her prospects turned out to be duds.  It is pretty boring just watching her.

        1. Oh really? It seems like most people speed through the challenge in only a few sittings. I’m trying to force myself to enjoy it and take my time.

            1. Interesting. My concern now is completing her aspiration in time. We’ll see. Luckily I did a just in case save.


    1. It’s been fun moving locations each house. All of the service sims had those odd looks on their faces when I paused the game to take a pic. I laughed so hard!
