Hi, I’m back for another one house update. This one is more because there’s going to be an heir poll at the end.
We like heir polls.
So here’s where we left my Trailer Park Family, the Hardens. They still needed one more pregnancy and money to buy a greenhouse
lamp. Because plantsim!Bonnie needs sun.
Pauline is off at college and I’ll play her at the end of the rotation.
Let’s get started.
The kids were spying on their neighbors....
Seriously, Hayleigh came home from school and immediately started looking through the telescope. IMMEDIATELY!!! The only things
that would unchain her were if some one called her over (which I admit I used liberally) or her bladder got the better of her.
And there are things to do and people to meet.
Which meant that I spend a lot of time throwing parties. Parties that led to uncomfortable conversations like...
“Remember that time I kissed you?”
“Yeah, I totally do! Let’s never talk about that again!”
“I think I’m going to kill my husband.”
“Well, if you do and need help hiding the body you know who to call.”
“I think things are a little crazy around here.”
I laughed and then went and found Arya, who was getting a juice while watching her nephew potty. Not really all that crazy.
“And I-ai-ai-ai will always stalk yooooouuuuu!!!”
“Will you stop!”
“So what’s your family like.”
“I don’t know, I just got one.”
“You mean you’re adopted?”
“Can I be adopted too?”
“I didn’t know you could read.”
“I know a lot of four letter words.”
“That you do.”
Nothing says uncontrollable teens like tub pirating.
I hate overly playful sims. They drive me up a wall. They’ll kill themselves trying to have fun and playful kids trigger social worker
visits. Seriously, they’ll jump on the bed until they overheat and are starving. The only time I lost my kids was because of this. Give
me serious sims any day.
“Hey son, congrats on growing up!”
“Thanks! Didn’t much have a choice.”
“Still good on you for growing up well.”
“Probably’ll be the only time.”
“Mom, can you help me with my homework?”
“Sure, baby, I got my GED around here somewhere.”
“On second thought maybe I’ll just have some food.”
“Mmmm... Food,” Hayleigh hummed to herself, listening in on her little sister’s conversation. “I could sure go for something grilled.”
“Damn. Too big for babby griller. I’m disappointed.”
“Did I hear you threaten to eat your brother?”
“Of course not!”
“Oh good. I was worried for a minute there.”
“No need to worry, I don’t even have any cooking skills.”
“Want to fix that?”
“Does it require actual cooking? If so, then no.”
“Isn’t this better than cooking?”
“I suppose so. The burning lady is amusing.”
“You have a morbid fascination with fire.”
“I think I’ll leave you here. Chores to do and all that.”
“Now when I die, don’t let nobody eat me.”
“Why would you think that, Momma?”
“Oh no reason...”
“I think I need a drink,” Brent muttered.
Stu looked over at his son. “The keg’s right outside.”
Meanwhile, Hayleigh wasn’t doing as well with making friends. Mostly since her ideas of friends making included noogies, pranks, and
Rock, Paper, Scissors. This is when I broke out the townie spawner and made some more teens. I realized having only 6 teens wasn’t
going to be enough. Not when two of the three girls were already married in.
And then Heck grew up. Not that he was happy about that.
And after a diaper change, it’d be Debbie’s turn too.
She’s kind of a good mix of features. Although all of the kids are looking a lot like Stu and less like Bonnie.
Hayleigh continued to attract my attention. Simply because she’s so dynamic. She’d get up and stalk her siblings.
Quite literally. Boundaries? Hayleigh doesn’t know what those are.
“So, you’re a kid now?” Hayleigh said, eyeing Heck. “Just to let you know, school sucks. You’re gonna hate it. It’s a soul sucking place
that drains all the fun out of life.”
“It’s not that bad,” Suzie protested. “Recess is fun.”
“There’s no recess in High School,” Brent chimed in.
“So go anything to say, Heck?” Hayleigh challenged.
Heck shrugged. “Thanks for the warning, sis.”
Suzie scrunched up her face. “You probably shouldn’t believe everything Hayleigh says.”
“That’s good advice,” Brent agreed. “Sorry sis,” he added looking at Hayleigh.
Heck just shrugged and went back to his pop tart. He wasn’t going to instigate his big sister further. Especially not since he had vague
memories of her wanting to eat him.
“You know those things are going to kill you.”
“Have a drink. Tiki drinks are much better.”
Betty died leaving a distraught family and money to seven sims.
And this is where I’m not going to be following the rules. I have no20khandouts in my game from Pescado. With the family funds
hovering right around 1000 most days I’m not going to have money to move the spares out.
Betty left the family 16,000 simoleans I bought two statues one for 6k and one for 5k and shoved them in inventory. Then with the
remaining 5k I bought what I needed to get for them. Namely a bed and a bathtub.
When the kids are closer to moving out, I’ll take the statues out and sell them. That way the kids get at least 1600 which is the
minimum needed to buy their own lot.
Then, since Betty isn’t the founder she got shunted off to the local cemetery. I think she was happy to finally leave the place. Even if it
took dying to do so.
And so life moved on, as it does.
Older siblings taunted younger ones.
Jimmy, the forgotten child, also has a birthday. He looked so much like Debbie that I had to double check to make sure he wasn’t a first
born effect kid. He wasn’t. Stu’s genetics are just really strong.
Brent and Multi-buns then settled into the get to know you thing. They have two solid bolts, but I probably won’t grow her up for him.
“Don’t worry big brother. I think you’re golden.”
“I can’t wait to noogie you.”
“So wanna be besties?”
“Outside, he wants to make his own special friends.”
Brent grunted and tried to extricate himself from Hayleigh’s grip without much success. He was looking forward to growing up, if only
to escape the morning noogies.
So that’s we’re going to leave you.
Now stay tuned for some important information about the heir poll. I’ve got to hold it now since Hayleigh and Brent are three days
from adult and that’s shorter than my rotation.
So here are the kids who are eligible for heir. I admit I am pre-rolling this mostly so that I don’t get screwed by the dice if say you vote
for my youngest and then he rolls knowledge. Pauline is already out of the running so I am not even bothering to include her. I am
listing those kids who pre-rolled knowledge here, but they will not be on my actual poll.
LTW: Marry off 6 Children
Pros: Kind of has a teen girlfriend. Doable Lifetime want.
Cons: Kind of boring. Not born in game. OMG the playful.
LTW: Media Magnate
Pros: Genetics are awesome. Has a teen boyfriend.
Cons: Not born in game sim. Has enemies. OMG! The playful.
NOT IN THE RUNNING!
That’s okay, I have a plan for her.
Pros: Likely to have a doable LTW, Genetics are awesome.
Cons: Not descended from the founder.
Pros: Born in game, Decent mix of parents. Likely will get a doable LTW
Cons: OMG the playful! Not terribly fond of her.
Pros: Well, the house will be empty when he’s ready to breed. Born in game.
Cons: I don’t know him very well. It will be a long time before he’s able to breed.
So there are your choices:
Please vote in the poll on my LJ.
I hope you enjoyed! Happy Simming!
