HC: Reboot

TS3W 2016-04-20 09-37-13-97

I apparently lost the whole batch of saves for this couple, including all the kids.  I think it is time for the reboot.  They deserved makeovers and will officially start the Homemaker Challenge from the beginning.  I won’t force Holly to find a new spouse since she and Libra are great together.

TS3W 2016-05-03 11-28-00-02

We are in a fresh, empty Sunset Valley.

Libra:  Yeah, because you tried to force us to live in the swamps of Twinbrook.
Holly:  Over our dead bodies!

Which is why we are, as mentioned, back in SV.

TS3W 2016-05-03 11-32-03-61

Since they have to live in squalor, they insisted that it be “pretty” squalor.  Pretty is subjective when you have to look at lilac and spiceberry all day long.  At some point, babies will be brought forth, and then they will decorate the extra room.

Libra has a LTW of Professional Author, which needs to be changed since it will be at least 20-30 years before they can buy a computer.  I went ahead and screwed around with her traits while I was at it.  We changed three, I believe.  Nurturing, Artistic and Family Oriented joined Ambitious and Hopeless Romantic.  Her new LTW is Master of the Arts (max painting and guitar).

TS3W 2016-05-03 11-44-04-51

New copies of sims means that they get cameras in their inventories! Score! Wooo!  Libra gets a dragon egg, guitar and easel and Holly gets a ballet barre and a chin up bar.  The hope is for the dragon to go out and find us treasure.

TS3W 2016-05-03 11-51-07-15

Libra talks to the egg about the weather.  I hope I can remember to keep it up for the next six hours.

TS3W 2016-05-03 11-51-26-20

Crazy old Holly is off to get a job in sports.  She appropriately (for once) dressed for the occasion.

TS3W 2016-05-03 11-59-43-79

After getting a job, Holly has all sorts of athletic wishes, just as Libra has painting and guitar wishes.  They can’t afford classes, of course, so they just get the first skill and wait for the baby dragon to hatch.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-08-13-06

Libra:  I sure hope you’re green.  We are forgoing food for you right now.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-09-17-01

Oh hell ya.  They named her Olive.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-11-22-21

Libra immediately sends her out to find something.

Libra:  Bring momma some money!

Well, she brought a $30 ruby. Not bad.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-13-47-55

Exhausted from her workout, Holly chats with Olive about gardening.  I think she should be more worried about the stray cat killing the paper, but whatever.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-16-45-44

With the ruby and the university packet sold, they almost have enough for a crib, so I thought it was time to get the first baby started.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-21-50-88

Holly:  Can you say pink?  How about diamond?

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-22-58-09

Looks like an emerald to me.  Maybe next time.  It values at $23.

They now have $219.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-24-50-49

Well, shit.  They may require a fire alarm before a crib.  Dammit.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-26-29-39

Well, the good news is they got insurance.  The bad news is they are $156 away from replacing the stove.  At least they can get a fire alarm AND a crib. Also, you can’t buy a cheaper stove to replace it either.  It has to be better than what they got (but then isn’t a cheap stove better than a burnt one?).

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-30-40-73

Libra:  You buy us one now that we can’t make fire?  Really?

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-33-20-72

I splurged and bought them barstools when I saw Libra standing to eat (because Holly was peeing), and not sitting on the toilet.  I figure a swing is only $60, cheaper than a crib by far.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-37-41-59

Yes, the correct sim is pregnant.  As soon as I saw this, I used SP to turn off Holly being allowed.  We are sticking to three kids, no fertility treatment.  I am also thinking of making this a Matriarchy.  If there are no girls before the last pregnancy, I will make Libra eat watermelons.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-41-53-81

After vomiting, a shower and cleaning up last night salad plates, Libra gets to the task of painting.  The baby dragon is stuck in Holly’s inventory until she wakes up.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-43-54-28

This was really awesome for about three seconds.  Then the bastard mailman delivered the bills ($72).

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-45-55-03

There is a sale at the grocery, so Holly (I need to remember to spellcheck and switch all the Jade’s I keep writing to Holly’s) is off to buy some fruit and a Lotto Ticket.

Big money!  No whammy’s!

Holly:  Wrong game, dumbass.

TS3W 2016-05-03 12-48-29-64

Hahahaha.  You better win big at the Lotto, toots.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-06-39-69

While Holly is at her first day of work, Libra heads to the Library because I just remembered that she has three skills as homemaker that she has to max.  (Cooking, gardening and handiness).

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-09-22-17

Oh and SP is finally immigrating in some sims.  Now go out and have babies!

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-11-51-18

Boo!  If she had more money to spend, she wouldn’t need to win the Lotto.  Duh.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-17-58-84

They may not have won the Lotto, but they did win overall.  After the maternity spin, she had the dragon bring a treasure.  It was a goldfish this time.  Gee, thanks.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-25-48-13

The second they had enough money, Libra wanted a crib.  They had exactly the right amount and now they have no money.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-29-34-24

Libra can’t plant all of her watermelons yet, but she does have a couple of things to start her garden with at least.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-31-16-37

YES!  This surpasses the morning Bloodstone ($84) by a lot.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-39-52-04

Libra randomly decided she had to learn bot building and writing, so a quick trip to the library was in order.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-51-24-70

Time jump:  After fixing the burnt stove the previous night, Libra spends her early morning in the garden.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-57-30-41

I have Libra queued up to get $100 worth of Lotto tickets.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-58-54-27

Well, shit.  I’m not sure how many she ended up with.  But, this is a great time for the two moms.

TS3W 2016-05-03 13-59-28-24

TS3W 2016-05-03 14-00-50-84

Libra was close enough to the hospital that I let her go instead of trekking across town to go home.  I did make Holly go straight back to work because we really can’t afford any performance loss.

Oh, and it’s a boy.  His name is Almond and he had Hopeless Romantic and Couch Potato locked in.  He likes Island Life, Pumpkin Pie and Yellow.

TS3W 2016-05-03 14-01-44-59

Oh and his wings waited an hour to show up.  I will probably color his wings yellow to honor his favorite color when he is older.

TS3W 2016-05-03 14-12-22-28

No word on the Lotto, but Holly staying at work that night really paid off.

TS3W 2016-05-03 14-12-43-49

You are a mess.

TS3W 2016-05-03 14-16-39-19

Libra is pregnant again and starving, so Holly raced in to care for the starving and lonely Al.

TS3W 2016-05-03 14-22-26-91

I forgot that they could help!  Yippee.

TS3W 2016-05-03 14-37-11-44

I missed the new maternity spin because Al was screeching as loud as he could and woke up Holly.

TS3W 2016-05-03 15-50-30-71

Look who had a birthday.  Little Almond sure got a good mix of both moms.

TS3W 2016-05-03 16-46-10-37

He is so adorable.  Although, I can’t wait for a sibling for him so that we can mute some of that yellow.

TS3W 2016-05-03 16-49-34-32

Yeah, so I hope you enjoy looking at him.  He’ll be this way for at least five days unless he maxes all his toddler skills.

TS3W 2016-05-03 16-50-39-62

Almond:  Mommy, I walking.
Libra:  Good boy!

TS3W 2016-05-03 16-52-35-37

Libra and Holly went to bed in the middle of the day, so poor Almond is stuck here for the day.  At least he can play and learn handiness.

TS3W 2016-05-03 17-56-47-82

Late night gardening while Holly runs off to a party.  I would have stalked Holly at the party, but the couple that threw the party went to bed.  I had her just turn around and go home.

TS3W 2016-05-03 18-50-01-26

Almond has moved on to talking and Holly has just got level seven in athletics.

TS3W 2016-05-03 18-51-44-34

If you were wondering where Libra is, the poor thing is finally getting around to doing some cleaning.

TS3W 2016-05-03 18-58-34-73

I am happy to report that food was cooked without incident.

TS3W 2016-05-03 19-02-38-66

Libra finally hit level 5 gardening and can now plant her watermelons.

TS3W 2016-05-03 19-11-03-96

Holly is at a party again at the same house with the same guests.  The pink haired guy is kind of cute.  I hope he breeds.  Otherwise, Holly looks about as bored as I feel and heads home.

TS3W 2016-05-04 06-49-28-07

By the time Holly got home and ate, the baby was coming.  I had Libra sneak to the nursery before Holly went to bed to avoid a freak out.

TS3W 2016-05-04 06-51-54-83

It’s a girl!  Peanut, like her brother, had the traits locked in.  She is Athletic with a good sense of humor.  She likes Kids, PB&J and Purple.

TS3W 2016-05-04 07-00-45-23

I hate to say it, but I think Holly should have been the homemaker.  She spends more time with the kids than Libra, who doesn’t have a job.  Holly is always wanting to get demoted/quit job and Libra has three wants a day to join the music, business or ghost buster careers.

TS3W 2016-05-04 07-06-31-92

After three days in the playpen, Almond was set free so he could learn to potty.

TS3W 2016-05-04 07-07-20-91

I will say that when Libra does spend time with Almond, she really goes all out.  She just wants to be a working parent.

So, Libra got her girl want, but Holly wants a boy next time.  I am going to have to break my no fertility treatment promise because I want another girl for an heiress option (or just give up the matriarchy idea).

TS3W 2016-05-04 07-19-35-06

Holly:  I was already on my way here!
Libra:  That bitch insinuated that I was a shitty mother.  I’m proving her wrong.
Holly:  Fine, but I hope you don’t mind that I’m going to stand here and throw a fit now.

TS3W 2016-05-04 07-22-16-85

She snuck in when I wasn’t looking!

TS3W 2016-05-04 07-23-27-75

Woot!  Libra is now off to take a painting class (finally) since Holly has the day off from work.  Holly will then be able to and take an athletics class after Libra comes home.

On that note, let’s end this on a high note.

Points: 1

Walk, Talk, Potty: Almond +1

10 points for each pink diamond the 6th generation take to their new home   *headdesk*

I wish I had seen this before I sold that one.  Omg.

    1. Me too! There is still one more to have also. I might wait a bit so that I am not buried in toddlers and babies though. I might go for twins since they both have opposite wants for gender.

  1. This challenge looks like fun, especially the part about only having one income at a time; might makes things more difficult for future generations, instead of always having way too much money.

    Almond is adorable! But then, all Tart offspring usually are. Hopefully they’ll have another girl for Peanut’s competition.

    1. Due to EA Officials “update” all links were broken. I have not had a chance to search for it again, hence why I haven’t updated any of the challenges. If I find it today, I will update the List Page. Sorry!
