Welcome back to hell. We start off by Natalie crying over the broken dollhouse. It’s probably been broken for 2 generations now.
Krystal enjoys a few minutes in the toilet while mom is at work and cannot scold her.
Belladonna: Yeah, I have four grandkids underfoot and I need to quit my job.
After getting home from work, Robin got to scold Krystal for her toilet fun and then heads upstairs to start potty training.
Krystal refuses to go potty and get scolds twice for being defiant.
Belladonna takes over with Tiffany so that Robin can try and lift the blue face of Tyler on the family panel.
This does not work.
Krystal is mad at the world.
She is exhausted and refuses to go to bed, so she just naps on the floor.
She’s so cute. Too bad all 4 kids look alike.
Tyler is the only one not to get mom’s eyes. They are a brown, so they must come from Allen.
I have no clue what she went downstairs to the basement instead of the second floor to bed.
First and last look at Captain Robin. She quit work to stay home with the kids.
Might as well get a look at the garden.
It’s TV premiere night. It’s also the first time in forever they have just been able to chill out.
Robin was supposed to be making the lint thingy so it won’t catch on fire. Instead, she has to spend fixing hour…fixing it.
Maybe tomorrow they can do the lint thing.
I found Opal’s work reward and brought it out. The gym that was in that room is now gone.
It’s now the nursery. The door to the basement is now locked to the toddlers. No more climbing stairs for hours on end and passing out.
The seating area for breakfast, lunch and dinner is a hit.
Unless you’re Tyler. Then you sit in your sister’s bed and get crumbs on the sheet.
Mom is more than two feet away, so he has to cry through the cheese.
The older girls get their bath time. Poor Robin is diseased and will pass it on to both Bella and Rachel before the chapter is done.
Still potty training. It may look like they have the kids in hand, but it’s all lies. No one ever pays any attention to a single one of them.
Rachel heads out to Granite Falls again.
I believe it’s summer here.
Paige wanders by. *wave*
There are things to harvest! Wooo!
Are you kidding me right now?
Everything in Granite Falls and the Deep Woods are harvestable.
After spending a night gathering it all up, Rachel has a snack to prepare herself for the next task.
Eatting all the unidentified wild plants.
Four of them didn’t count because she already had them from the previous year. Grr.
A quick pick me up to reset for the trek back home for birthdays.
Robin: Okay girls, let’s get this going.
I’m not sure how, but they both got Happy Toddler. Natalie starts off better than Krystal though.
The younger twins always look sad. It’s depressing.
What the heck has come over Rachel?
Rachel: If I throw him up high enough, he just might slam into the ceiling and die. Then there will only be 3 left to kill off.
Tyler: You’re mean.
Rachel says screw those kid and heads back on vacation. Robin tags along with Brant.
Deep connection 3 and kiss 3. Then Robin sends Brant home.
Rachel has now eating 8 unidentified plants.
They play horseshoes for a day or two while waiting for more plants to sprout.
Oh get over it, Rachel. You hate your family.
Nothing Rachel needs grows in the fall. She has spent part of winter and all of spring (except one day for birthdays) and summer (except a day for birthdays two times I think) seasons here and now she has to wait two more again.
So, she hangs out collecting insects.
Allen dies, and Robin decides not to go home to sad babies.
They fished for a few days.
Only because I had not googled the mushrooms and was still hoping that they would sprout in the fall.
But, soon everything went dead.
And their 7 days of vacation comes to a halt.
Robin: Maybe next year.
Rachel: Screw that.
Tyler and his stench were leveling up something.
Natalie: I wish someone would pay attention to us.
Instead, I have them work for days on getting the relic collection under control. More than half of them need to be sent back to the archaeologist society.
Belladonna is the most wily. It’s been raining for days and she likes to sneak off to bathe in it. Then gets interrupted by me, which means she forgets to get dressed again.
They hardly ever leave this spot.
Tyler’s stench grows.
Tiffany’s does too. Rachel now has a new disease. Robin is being begged for baths, which she declines.
Tiffany: Give me bath or else!
She sat there and retaliates by crapping herself on purpose. I have no clue why she’s sparkling, but it can’t be good.
Robin finally gives in and does bath time.
And recalls that these kids are still at potty level 2.
We interrupt relic time for project. I haven’t even been telling the girls to do their homework. Oops.
Also, Belladonna has caught the disease.
Tyler finally gets potty to level 3.
Robin: I’m going to ignore you again now. Later, kid.
Tiffany: Pay attention to me!
Belladonna: Not now, come back later.
Last one is almost done.
Then Bella goes and checks the mail and accumulates 5 more.
Belladonna: Ready for your cake?
Don’t ask. Belladonna is going senile.
It was actually the thunder that is Tiffany stomping through the house. She heads off to take an angry poop.
She gets interrupted on the toilet or something.
Because I see this a little while later when she stomps back through the house.
Aww, so if we were playing a normal game, Robin would be just about to die too. I think Victor was 3 days older than her.
After doing some research, Rachel and I are finally over this apsiration and we will never do it again (I have only done it once before for the Drifter Challenge, I thought it sucked years ago, but seasons has made it so much worse).
Coolspear came out with a mod, but I was sad that it was not for EA world plants. He made me one just for the morel mushroom and the false morel, which makes it in season all year around (or all except winter). Rachel heads back to Granite Falls with Robin and they fish, collect bugs and Robin works on photography for a few days while waiting for this moment.
That’s a load off.
After taking 3 days to get from level 2 to 3, Robin has decided she hates this skill.
They arrive home and Robin takes a selfie and then my game froze. FROZE. I hadn’t saved in about a million sim weeks.
It got replayed and now Rachel spends her first night in the tent.
12 hours later, she emerges for some plasma and it did not count.
Got to get those retail perks now. The ladies of the Vatore family sell the itty bitty toy store and open a ladies clothing boutique on the same lot.
I didn’t pay attention to perks. I think they bought 2.
Robin then heads next door to open up the vet. She stays there about a decade.
Robin: This is a lie!
Grandpa Caleb is our level 5 employee. He has been here with Robin for days. In fact, she only closes the place when we get a notification that he needs a break. Robin then cleans the clinic and re-opens it a little while later. Caleb is going to be useless for a while.
It has been a few more days. Robin has gotten the clinic to a full 4 stars, but she keeps losing it and pretty much is stuck at 3.5 stars, where it has been since Generation 1.
Robin heads home and Rachel heads into her tent. 12 hours later, tent sleeping still does not count.
I then abandon my game to do some research on how to get the vet clinic to level 5 and to find out if vampire’s cannot get credit for tent sleeping.
Timeline wise: Natalie and Krystal are just about to be teens. Maybe next time, I’ll even mark down their traits and aspirations for you guys. If it isn’t clear, I’m so over this challenge. Outdoor Enthusiast broke me.
Right now, we still have these Aspirations left to do:
Outdoor Enthusiast – Rachel (4/4)
Serial Romantic – Robin (3/4) (needs to kiss 7 more people).
Friend of Animals – Ugh, I don’t wanna do it.
We also have to max all the skills. Left to do is:
Herbalism – Rachel – level 9
Photography – Robin – level 3
Top 10 Careers: Wahooooo!
