Chapter 1.4

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-19-02-28

Welcome back!  Birthdays were the main thing last time.  We start off with Lucille playing fetch with Lydia in the house.  Victoria is at work (alone), so she knows she can get away with this.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-19-17-54

Omar helps Oscar with his chess playing.

I still can’t believe there is no need to complete aspirations as a child for the Golden Trio.  Not, that I’m complaining.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-21-30-17

Good girl!

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-24-41-51

Bella Goth is aging up to adult, so she invited Victoria over for her birthday.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-29-12-58

She was the only guest, no cake was made, and they all hung out in a bedroom.

It ends up being the lamest birthday ever.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-32-13-28

Lydia has needed a bath for several days, she was so gross.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-33-27-98

Continuing on, Victoria is still working on helping kids with homework for four hours.

With her A, Bella doesn’t take as long as others for her homework.  In two sessions, Victoria has barely hit the hour mark.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-35-00-48

We changed houses again (don’t ask, I got bored) and The Count of Gnomington did get his halo back (after being put in the family inventory).  Dammit.  I’m sick of those packets.

It took me 6 hours to find them a house.  Yes, I’m serious.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-37-06-89

Only three left for this collection!

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 02-50-20-77

The “visitors” showed up at work.  Not a single one was revealed to be an alien (in fact, only this one dude showed up and he’s human).  I am starting to worry that there are no aliens in my game.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-05-42-62

If you wanted to there 3rd house, here it is.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-07-04-92

Lily Feng is next to show up to turn.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-08-51-88

Caleb called up Oscar for an outing and the whole family joined.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-14-32-01

More aspiration work on the chess games.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-15-35-79

She drank a fun potion.  It did not make her playful or even happy.  Brat.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-29-35-62

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-32-07-07

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-36-55-54

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-39-19-34

Victoria finally completes that objective and becomes level 7 in the parenting skill.

Victoria:  Thank God for C students and their slowness.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-53-20-89

This guy is a co-worker of Vic’s.  Omar heads out and is his 5th sim he had to meet.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 11-59-21-67

It’s Winterfest in the Vatore household.  I can’t believe it’s not been a full year yet.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-00-23-90

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-07-07-51

Everything was going great.  They all asked Father Winter for a present and everyone except Lucy was happy.  He gave poor Lucy a carrot.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-11-27-53

The moment it happened, I was too shocked to take a photo.  Victoria attacked Father Winter!  All the kids are pissed off.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-16-09-14

It amused me that Miss Grand Vampire got her ass kicked.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-20-02-44

Despite that, they all had a successful Winterfest even without the grand meal.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-24-06-79

Got to learn to write before you can do a novel.  Victoria finally does something other than Troll Teh Forums (which she does 100 times a day).

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-25-05-20

They all help Belladonna on her first project.  Not sure why she only just got one.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-27-17-84

Potions for Oscar.  He is near a shower.  Fire alarms have been installed.

I have only used this death trap once before.  It killed 5 sims.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-30-12-22

Lucille is out monkeying around.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-36-44-94

This adorable little guy came home with someone.  Don’t quote me, but I think his name is Li-Ning.  He belongs the San Myshuno couple, Bheeda.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-38-17-97

He does homework with Omar.   Sorry for walls down, but you can see Lucy playing for the top score in the Commander game.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-38-53-86

The triplets all spend their precious points on moodlet solvers (a fact that I will regret shortly) so they can continue to work on their aspirations (I was still under the impression that they had to be completed at this point).

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-50-35-44

Li goes home and Omar quickly calls him up so they can continue to work on their friendship.  After that, he will chat with him on the computer.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-52-35-87

Lydia is really getting on my nerves.  She is now to the point that she won’t go to sleep or eat.  She always needs attention and she’s in heat again.  I would have thought that as an elder, this would stop.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-53-49-42

Ah, here is where he chats with Li.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-55-08-88

Lydia:  I’d eat buy my bowl is empty.

Also, this is the first time Caleb has haunted since the first house, two seasons ago.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 12-58-43-94

Victoria:  I cannot command you to fix things, but you can go clean.

Lydia’s bowl is filled, but she won’t eat.  Argh!

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 13-00-39-84

First snowfall for me in the Sims 4!

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 13-16-53-23

Oscar was randomly playing alone and Bella sat down to chat.  She has nothing really to do, so she played with him.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 13-18-49-82

So, dear Lydia departs us.  I guess that may have been why she was acting so difficult the past couple of days.  I also wish I had all the kids’ 500 points back for moodlet solvers.

This is my first pet death in Sims 4 and it was pretty sad.

Unless you’re Lucille.  Then you want advice on being a ninja.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 13-21-22-79

Omar and Victoria crying it out together.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 13-22-36-87

The rest drown their sorrows in grilled cheese.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 13-48-44-45

Victoria:  I just don’t think I can go to work today.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 13-49-57-82

At least someone has points.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 13-57-46-92

Victoria has 8 vacation days (has never taken one before) and so, she calls in and heads to the bar with Marcus.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-01-47-91

Her plans for Marcus are foiled when Caleb showed up.  So, she wanders over and starts chatting with that J dude.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-02-45-90

Victoria:  Look, I know you’re noncommital and that’s fine.  I just need a sperm donation.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-03-37-68

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-04-02-57

J:  We better test our compatibility.
Victoria:  Definitely.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-06-06-55

Victoria:  This was a successful test.  Please stop by my house later tonight when my kids are asleep.  Thanks.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-09-00-28

Bella sent a sad text to Li and he invited her over.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-10-11-55

They chatted for a bit while he ate and she did her homework.

Li:  You’re such a nerd.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-12-58-83

J comes over as scheduled.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 14-14-54-09

Victoria:  Thanks for breaking my computer, dumbass.

They finally mosey on upstairs where he makes a successful deposit.  Victoria becomes just friends with him and sends him home.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 17-17-11-06

Oscar can finally make the emotion potions he needs.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 17-18-07-94

One last bath before Belladonna’s birthday.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 17-20-30-19

Omar is kind of hard to get friends for.  He’s just going from skill to skill doing a little bit at a time while he work son getting Ti-Ning (not Li) as a best friend.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 17-23-52-13

Motor skill is done outside on the monkey bars.  She needed fresh air after being tied to the computer for so long.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 17-24-49-77

Uh oh.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 17-26-26-74

It’s time for our first teen!

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 17-44-39-70


TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-04-32-21


Traits:  Erratic, Gloomy, Creatively Gifted, Top-Notch Toddler, High Metabolism
Aspiration: Bodybuilder

LMAO  She’s so not athletic.  Oh well.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-10-20-48

Dark meditation to start off teendom.  With her A as a child, she starts with a B in high school.  She needs her energy replenished so she can do her homework and extra credit.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-14-16-44

Her picture is added to the wall immediately.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-17-23-17

Oscar:  Can’t you see I’m trying to get my last mental point.  Stop that noise!
Lucille:  Can’t stop.  I need to max two more skills.  Slacker.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-19-49-35

Belladonna:  Who’s bright idea was this bodybuilding crap?

Not mine man.  Blame the mod.

It’s seriously painful to watch her try and do this.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-31-21-25

Lucille:  You’re such a loser.  Are you really still on your first milestone?
Omar:  I’m just not social enough for this aspiration.  That’s all.

I’m probably done forcing this kid to even try.  I’ll just have him concentrate on his actual childhood goals.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-44-16-04

Victoria:  How dare you shout forbidden words while I’m sitting RIGHT HERE.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-44-23-52

Belladonna:  I learned it by watching you!

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-46-17-83

My biggest concern (other than the three best friends thing) is getting their emotions under control.

They must also each earn at least three positive character value if you have Parenthood installed

Seriously?  These kids are doing okay in some areas but emotional control is, well, out of control with empathy not far behind.  They all head off to volunteer with family before the big festivities tonight.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-47-03-77

Well, that works too.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 18-50-40-17

Watching the Countdown on New Years Eve.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 19-02-36-30

All the volunteering has rubbed off.  Oscar is doing wonderous things right now.

Oscar:  Shoveling snow is not wonderous.

Yes it is.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 19-07-18-61

He then heads up and finally maxes his mental skill and gets his aspiration done.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 19-10-56-53

Victoria is annoying all the kids.  I mean seriously annoying them.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 19-14-25-38

But she finally manages to get into Full Parent Mode for her (second) aspiration of Super Parent.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 19-14-57-73

Omar:  Why are you having another baby, mom?
Victoria:  Because some dumbshit forgot we needed a Bad Apple.


TS4_x64 2018-08-09 19-17-38-47

Lucille:  Yay, I won’t be the baby anymore.  Can I go take a bath now?

Poor Lucille was still playing the piano.  I forgot all about her and she wouldn’t stop without intervention.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 19-18-27-30

Omg, he did it.

Omar:  Take that you friendless losers.

TS4_x64 2018-08-09 19-20-16-72

Of course, it’s sad the Ti-Ning had already become a teen.
