House 002 Chapter 5
A couple of days ago I was worrying on the House 002 thread on the forums about completing the challenge in time since I had the whole start-of-the-challenge risky woohoo and heir birth. Vihisha suggested that I can move in other sims that have jobs. Why, what a great idea! So I moved in her simself’s triplets… (hehehe)
The first to move in was Casey. He’s level 6 in the journalism career, is a foodie, good and loves the outdoors. He left behind a wife and son Scott to live in an actual house with the Rover family.
Next to move in was Vernon. He’s a level 9 bodybuilder, (holy cow!) he’s lazy, outgoing and hates children. He was married to some guy but didn’t have any kids.
Last to move in was Jaden. He’s a level 5 writer, a dance machine, glutton and insane. He left behind a wife and son Santino.
With less worries over income, Mindy spends what little spare time she has reading the herbalism book she bought in Granite Falls.
Andrew pitches in by helping with the watering. It doesn’t happen very often though and unfortunately someone usually starts talking to him and he stops.
Willow ages to child and I’m very grateful that she can finally care of herself.
I stuck the triplets beds upstairs in the soon-to-be living room area at first but they never seemed to want to sleep in them even though they were claimed… I ended up putting in couches and a tv so their beds keep getting moved to other places around the house.
The monster-under-the-bed patch was yesterday and I was eager to see it. The excitement didn’t last long because, in this family, I can only control the mom so I couldn’t send everyone back to bed.
Another wonderful tip that I got in the forums was to graft my plants. I had strawberries and snapdragons so I grafted them onto each other so they would produce dragonfruit as well. Later I got a cutting from a cherry tree and grafted it onto the apple tree to make pomegranates and planted some lillys and grafted snapdragons to make orchids. She’s level 10 gardening now.
One more tip I got was to use potions. Twice I let all of her needs drop almost into all red (except bladder) and got her the moodlet solver potion. I’ve been trying to follow her whims more often now so I can get that potion more often.
Vernon was angry most of the time. Usually just because of there being kids around but also because the kids kept waking him up about the darned monsters every night and he’s lazy so it made him mad.
That’s a neat sim for ya, mopping puddles on the grass. Sheesh.
Mindy ventures to Sylvan Glade to escape the chaos of the house and get some lilys and a cherry tree cutting.
It took awhile for everything to spawn so she had a nice day alone and fished. She’s a loner, oh the irony.
The chaos of the house continues. If Mindy doesn’t have food cooked someone else tries to cook. It’s crazy.
Oh no tentacle monster!
That’s enough of that. With the special night light the kids finally start sleeping all night again.
I’m sad to announce that first Brock and then his husband Emerson died. This left Keith alone in the old house so when he aged to young adult I went into manage worlds and found a cute townie girl, merged her into his house and married them in CAS. Hopefully MC Command Center will have them making babies soon.
This is Jaden’s son Santino.
And this is Casey’s son Scott.
When I saw this guy crying I finally found the other urn for one of the ghosts that have been haunting the house. I had Mindy go put it in her inventory.
I see Emerson talking to the guys outside the day Brock died.
He was very sad and Mindy went to comfort him. He died the next day.
Wade thinks when it’s his turn to take over house 003 he won’t pass out all the time like his mom does… we’ll see.
I got a herb seed packet and planted some basil and parsley so Mindy was finally able to brew some herbal remedies.
I added a closet to their bedroom.
I decided that even though the bluebells made good money, it wasn’t worth all the work and sold them all.
There’s a new firepit out back… perfect for roasting beetles, yum.
Maybe not so yum after all? Mindy completed the 2nd part of her aspiration either way.
House value: $29,094. Household Funds: $9,027. I wasn’t sure what else I wanted to do to the house yet.
Wade (house 003 heir) is 2 days from aging to teen and Mindy still has the rest of her aspiration to complete. I think from here on out I’m not going to worry as much about things that will help make money and just concentrate on her aspiration.
