Challenge island rotation 5 -reeves, mc cullough, wheeler, and leive
Larger than normal update, but you’re getting four households. That makes up for it, right?
So let’s get to it!
Up first is the Reeves Family headed by Regina and Pong, the former Gardener. This family is my gardener/fisher family who’s a little
behind the times. That means limited career choices, sparkling food only, and limited marital choices. It’s okay. They’re kind of
The house is still pretty desolate but it’s slowly beginning to come together. Mostly thanks to Pong who’s blazing through
The kids are all happily skilling, blissfully unaware of just how poor they really are.
Although slightly less poor now.
Yes, I sent Regina to work pregnant. They had $89 simoleans to their name. I had to sell one of Pong’s precious fish to make sure the
nanny got paid to even do this.
Pong went off to skill while Regina went to bed.
“How much did you get?”
“A little over two grand.”
All in all it was a pretty successful party.
Although Teen Elvis Wannabe seems pretty surprised that he fell in love with Tabitha. Don’t worry Wannabe, she’ll grow up and forget
all about you. I promise.
After the party, not much really happened. The parents worked.
The kids went to school and brought home relatives for playmates.
And the grandparents stopped by to stalk the babies. Which became annoying because the poor baby needed his diaper changed and
wanted to grow up.
Here’s Johnathan after Damion finally put him down.
He’s a little awkward looking but he’ll grow into his features.
Right now he’s more interested in learning how to poop than to do much else.
He’s a Capricorn with stats of 10/3/2/10/7. Sigh... Another bed jumper.
This slide serves no useful purpose other than Ariel is frigging adorable. And apparently doesn’t understand the concept of
And this is what you get for hanging out in hot tubs all day! I am kind of amused at this.
Pong is now one promotion away from being the Hand of Poseidon. And slowly, slowly the front of the house is starting to look less
Regina’s also successfully managed to grow a set of eggplants so eggplant juice is definitely in this family’s future.
And after several glasses of the eggplant juice, Pong reaches the top of the oceanography career. Yay!
While Regina works on Culinary. Education hasn’t shown up yet in the paper, I’ve been looking.
I’m also amused that somehow Regina has managed to become overweight. It kind of suits her. Besides, who trusts a skinny chef.
With the yard coming along nicely it’s time to see about getting into the garden club.
They seemed to like it, or at least one of them liked the hot tub out back. But unfortunately my garden wasn’t large enough... WTH???
So several more trees were planted and I’ll try again next season.
That’s it from the boring Reeves.
Moving on to the slightly less boring McCullough’s and the OWBC household.
I have to admit it, I kind of love this house. It just feels so odd.
Kailee and Robert apparently stocked up on fish and boots at the family store. It’s not quite totally insane but it is a little nuts.
Because I need to be doing a career hunt and I’ve gotten the journalism career reward, it’s time for Robert to find something else.
A few careers in and we hit pay dirt. Education. That bookcase is massively indispensible. Now to find a forever career for Robert.
Something that runs at night would be nice so he can be home with the kids.
Unfortunately there weren’t any of those on the computer so he’ll stay in education for the moment.
Since job hunting is so exhausting it was time for a nice relaxing woohoo.
Risky woohoo! Seriously this is now my 6th risky woohoo pregnancy in this hood. Apparently 5% is just too high. Grumbles.
“You don’t need to inhale your pop tart.”
“So I was thinking, I don’t think my pregnancy counts for our third pregnancy.”
“That’s okay! Didn’t you hear the noise earlier?”
“Yeah, that scream of frustration?”
“Yep! That’s the universal signal for baby incoming.”
“That’s what caused this, yes.”
One thing I haven’t missed about playing an OWBC is the Drew Rule. Because of their low funds, the family only has one toilet and tub
and when they break it’s an issue.
And just to show my screams heard across the internet were not a fluke, here’s a pregnant Kailee now showing her bump. At least the
required pregnancies will be done soon.
Gotta love career rewards, they really help with skilling bad apples.
Adorable slide is adorable and serves no other purpose.
“That muffin’s a little dark, honey.”
“I made it myself. I like cooking. It’s my favoritest thing in the world.”
“Okay... Might want to get better at it. Don’t want to serve people burnt food.”
“Why not? The char adds flavor. And it’s better than your sparkly toaster pastry.”
“See, I told you my muffin was better!”
Meet Loki (yes, I went there) He’s got black hair, dark blue eyes and alien skin. Kind of like MCU!Loki.
The rest of the family was as excited as I was to see a boy alien kid.
Then it was back to work. Robert finished working on the engine, so it’s now on to the body.
Did you know that the happy holidays stuff stereo doesn’t wake people up? I didn’t.
It quickly got replaced with a real stereo. We need to keep the bad apple from skipping school because she’s too tired to go.
I haven’t missed bad apples. It’s a chore to keep their grades up. First there’s the making sure they’ve got high enough fun/motives to
do their homework.
Then there’s actually having to help them do it.
We interrupt my ranting to tell you that the car is finished. That’s one thing done. Several more to go!
Eeeeee!!! So cute!!!
No, I will not stop. He’s adorable and I love him.
“I think we’ve been relegated to spares, Thor.”
“I don’t think so. Loki’s an alien. I don’t think he’s eligible for heir.”
“He’s going to be mad when he grows up.”
“What makes you say that?”
“All of the stories I read online.”
Considering that’s his new baby mama standing next to him, I find it funny that Damion isn’t inclined to cheat. I’m beginning to feel
sorry for that townie considering that he’s shot her down several times.
But crazy sim hijinks aren’t why you’re here, although they might be, let’s get to the birthday boys!
Seth is pretty much a male version of his mother. He’s a Libra and has stats of 2/8/1/10/7.
And Osiris pretty much takes after his father. He’s a Libra with stats of 2/8/7/3/9.
The party was a success, mostly thanks to the fun stuff all over. Which brings us to the end of the season and on to another house.
This is my LTW hunt house where I try to see how many Different lifetime wants I can fulfil.
Deanna wants to be Education Minister while Nicole wants to have three children graduate from college.
And here’s their empty but pretty yellow house.
Deanna quickly got a job in Education while Nicole picked up Culinary. They need the money otherwise, I’d have just let Nicole be a
stay at home mom.
Much better than I expected.
I also totally love Dreadlocks Townie looking surprised and upset about his new Best Friends status with Tiffany.
Gotta love the sims!
The Family finally amassed enough money that I had Deanna call for another kid to adopt. I’m going to be adopting at least one child
in this house and depending on when I get the Marry 6 kids off want, possibly more.
