Welcome back to Arbor Watch. I know it has been an insanely long time since I’ve updated. Real life hasunfortunately kept me away from simming, sucks when that happens. Anyways, I’m back and bringing an update along for the ride.
Nothing like a leaky bathtub to welcome us backto the Vegas. Luckily Komei has his lucky wrench and has it all in hand.
Komei and Amber are still madly in love with eachother. You know guys, you do have to open the store eventually right?
Of course Amber’s Tales basically runs itself now so I ended up taking random pictures of things like butterflies.
Amber and Komei head home in time to meet thegirls home from school. Abby’s birthday is coming up this rotation so this is her last few days to max her charisma skill. Come on baby don’t fail me now.
Finally Abby has her world peace speech ready and maxed Charisma skill! Woot! Entertainment here we come.
Everybody gets leftovers for dinner. Well Komei and Abby do. Sam’s on a diet apparently. Simfast has to get boring.
Day Two starts early as usual with Amber and Komei at the daily grind of skilling.
The girls are off to school. It’s Abby’s last *sniffle* they all grow so fast.
I sent Amber and Komei off to the bookstore again. Iadmit I’m playing favorites with the two business. I love the bookstore. I can’t wait to expand it to look likeBarnes & Nobles before they took all the comfy couches out.
Angie finally got a gold cashier badge. I had Komeigive her a well deserved raise. Hopefully she won’t be stuck as a teen much longer. If I remember to grow her up with Abby.
The girls bring more vacation sims home from school. I wish they’d bring Julian or his siblings home instead of the vacation townies. It’s hard to keep a goodrelationship with them. Although it’s not like they needfriends for jobs or anything to think about it. Well Abby will eventually.
Abby spends her time with Hannah teaching her tricks.
Finally the hour arrives. I’m so excited. Arbor Watch first natural born adult sim. Squee.
Oh Abby, not something I would’ve of picked butyou do look nice in that. However, I’m still going to have Komei make you something else.
Oh don’t do that, there’s no college. You can’t go to a college that doesn’t exist.
I hope you’re telling what’s her face to skedaddle. No more vacation sims.
Newly dressed and a little saner, Abby is fixing the broken shower. What’s with all the plumbing leaking all of a sudden?
It’s doggie bath time. Next time we’re doing a BACC with cats.
Day Three begins with a new addition to the household. Meet little Sumo only puppy of Strength and Hannah.
Abby begins to learn her father’s trade. Although I’ll probably let Sammie take over Komei’s Klothes. Abby can help out in the mean time.
No entertainment jobs available yet. But it Anna from the NEW Pokémon Legacy for ever to find her entertainment job.
To not neglect Komei’s Klothes, I send Abby andKomei up there. Abby takes the opportunity to a little spouse hunting. Juan Harris is first in line,but she’s going to have to wait until next rotation.
Back at home, Komei takes a nap while Abby makes lunch for everyone.
Amber helps Sumo out by bringing him uponto the porch. Poor little thing was getting buried in snow.
Komei was surprisingly the only one up at four in the morning on Day Four. Come to think of it. I’ve heard older people have a harder time sleeping late. Maybe that’s the thing with Komei and Amber.
I feel bad for making Komei work at the time. Today he gets to play with puppies, he’s so cute.
The rest of the day is somber.Everyone just kind of does their own thing.
Sammie is the only one that has any energy,but she was at school when Chloe passed on.
Day Five finds Komei the only one up early again. Other than the dogs of course.
Day Five means RENO DAY!!!!!! There wasn’t a real good way toexpand the house outward on the first floor. So I added the secondfloor, the Vega are the first family to have a two story house. Theydidn’t have a whole lot of money to furnish. But Abby and Sammiedon’t have to share a room anymore. Eventually there will another bedroom upstairs and probably another den/family room area. Maybe a study, dunno yet.
Here’s a picture of the outside of the house. The snow makes a nice effect.
Amber and Abby spend most of the day hard at workto recoup some of the money from the renovations.
They’re able to sell enough to get Abby a brand new double bed.
Abby also gets a computer in hopes that shecan find her dream job. Though no luck yet.
That’s it for the Vega’s this time around.Bit of a short update, but with no small children there’s not a lot going on. Anyways on to the Cookes.
