Chapter 3.5

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 20-52-08-37

Welcome back to hell.  We start off by Natalie crying over the broken dollhouse.  It’s probably been broken for 2 generations now.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 20-52-46-56

Krystal enjoys a few minutes in the toilet while mom is at work and cannot scold her.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 20-53-28-50

Belladonna:  Yeah, I have four grandkids underfoot and I need to quit my job.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 20-57-00-97

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-00-35-62

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-01-33-30

Krystal is mad at the world.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-01-57-70

She is exhausted and refuses to go to bed, so she just naps on the floor.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-11-11-49

She’s so cute.  Too bad all 4 kids look alike.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-11-19-00

Tyler is the only one not to get mom’s eyes.  They are a brown, so they must come from Allen.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-14-30-88

I have no clue what she went downstairs to the basement instead of the second floor to bed.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-17-27-57

First and last look at Captain Robin.  She quit work to stay home with the kids.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-20-34-08

Might as well get a look at the garden.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-21-29-61

It’s TV premiere night.  It’s also the first time in forever they have just been able to chill out.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-23-50-82

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-25-03-17

I found Opal’s work reward and brought it out.  The gym that was in that room is now gone.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-27-13-73

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-26-51-88

The seating area for breakfast, lunch and dinner is a hit.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-27-13-73

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-30-46-04

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-31-32-38

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-31-49-50

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-34-14-29

Rachel heads out to Granite Falls again.

I believe it’s summer here.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-37-03-99

Paige wanders by.  *wave*

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-39-04-03

There are things to harvest!  Wooo!

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-41-32-28

Are you kidding me right now?

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-42-17-13

Everything in Granite Falls and the Deep Woods are harvestable.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-47-04-27

After spending a night gathering it all up, Rachel has a snack to prepare herself for the next task.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-57-05-63

Eatting all the unidentified wild plants.

Four of them didn’t count because she already had them from the previous year.  Grr.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 21-58-45-05

A quick pick me up to reset for the trek back home for birthdays.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-04-50-65

Robin:  Okay girls, let’s get this going.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-18-47-89

Natalie –

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-19-30-06

Krytal –

I’m not sure how, but they both got Happy Toddler.  Natalie starts off better than Krystal though.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-20-29-53

The younger twins always look sad.  It’s depressing.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-24-24-72

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-25-56-65

Tyler:  You’re mean.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-36-38-00

Rachel says screw those kid and heads back on vacation.  Robin tags along with Brant.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-37-47-72

Deep connection 3 and kiss 3.  Then Robin sends Brant home.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-40-00-89

Rachel has now eating 8 unidentified plants.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-41-40-31

They play horseshoes for a day or two while waiting for more plants to sprout.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-46-28-97

Oh get over it, Rachel.  You hate your family.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-49-36-50


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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-52-18-68

So, she hangs out collecting insects.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-56-46-21

Allen dies, and Robin decides not to go home to sad babies.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-57-38-30

They fished for a few days.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 22-59-04-89

Only because I had not googled the mushrooms and was still hoping that they would sprout in the fall.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-07-55-05

But, soon everything went dead.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-09-47-07

And their 7 days of vacation comes to a halt.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-30-31-92

Robin:  Maybe next year.

Rachel: Screw that.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-32-26-19

Tyler and his stench were leveling up something.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-48-20-18

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-52-50-60

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-54-17-41

They hardly ever leave this spot.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-56-08-23

Tyler’s stench grows.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-58-12-89

Tiffany’s does too.  Rachel now has a new disease.  Robin is being begged for baths, which she declines.

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-58-24-50

Tiffany:  Give me bath or else!

TS4_x64 2018-09-13 23-59-47-05

She sat there and retaliates by crapping herself on purpose.  I have no clue why she’s sparkling, but it can’t be good.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-07-56-33

Robin finally gives in and does bath time.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-09-22-70

And recalls that these kids are still at potty level 2.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-14-11-03

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-15-43-42

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-24-46-54

Tyler finally gets potty to level 3.

Robin:  I’m going to ignore you again now.  Later, kid.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-26-30-75

Tiffany:  Pay attention to me!

Belladonna:  Not now, come back later.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-27-42-85

Last one is almost done.

Then Bella goes and checks the mail and accumulates 5 more.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-31-16-99

Belladonna:  Ready for your cake?

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-32-13-93

Don’t ask.   Belladonna is going senile.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-33-14-84

It was actually the thunder that is Tiffany stomping through the house.  She heads off to take an angry poop.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-33-33-58

She gets interrupted on the toilet or something.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 00-35-12-02

Because I see this a little while later when she stomps back through the house.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 06-29-30-96

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 06-37-46-96

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 06-58-06-08

That’s a load off.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 07-04-14-55

After taking 3 days to get from level 2 to 3, Robin has decided she hates this skill.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 07-15-10-25

They arrive home and Robin takes a selfie and then my game froze.  FROZE.  I hadn’t saved in about a million sim weeks.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 07-24-15-24

It got replayed and now Rachel spends her first night in the tent.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 07-34-01-60

12 hours later, she emerges for some plasma and it did not count.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 07-59-48-73

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 08-07-12-98

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 08-13-53-81

I didn’t pay attention to perks.  I think they bought 2.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 08-21-54-94

Robin then heads next door to open up the vet.  She stays there about a decade.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 09-07-04-97

Robin:  This is a lie!

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 09-23-47-79

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 09-37-55-04

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.

TS4_x64 2018-09-14 09-52-22-75

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!

Robin Specific:
Max Vet Skill – Done
Adopt a dog and fully train it
Max Pet Training
Run the Vet Clinic – ongoing.
Run the Retail shop – ongoing
Have 1 pregnancy.
