Lavender Fayers, Orchid Fayers, Maple Fayers, Spruce Fayers

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 10-53-46-27

Before we begin, my defaults went missing, so I am using PeachT’s Candybar now.  I also added Almighty Hat’s Ideal Plantsim mod.  I’m not actually sure anyone will be spawning anymore babies, but just in case.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 12-23-47-84

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 12-24-12-11

Orchid had met Tobias in the off season (and even has 3 bolts with him) and so last seasons taxes were paid first thing.  It has been awhile since I have been on this lot, so I had a quick comm lot check.
Orchid (daughter is Maple) owns Pets R Us and Fayers Fabulous Produce
Lavender (son is Spruce) owns Fayers Fabulous Fun.

They both have an inventory full of fish, so I am hoping that the garden starts producing so they can go sell it all.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 12-55-04-33

Maple and Spruce take a break to water themselves.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-10-37-24

Woo finally some mouthwatering fruits and veggies are showing up.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-12-24-49

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-12-30-23

This is a career household too, so hopefully the promotions are as plentiful as the chance cards.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-16-58-20

Any plant that is not ecstatically happy gets talked to.   It’s one way to pass the long night.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-30-28-43

Toddler check.  Maple has maxed charisma and whatever else that showed up when she was born from mom.  Spruce gets to level 9 charisma from the bunny head.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-42-58-02

Orchid and Lavender head to the market/flower shop and do some business.  This one has an auto-register.  I usually make everyone get a gold register badge before that is allowed, but I must have forgotten when I put it in.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-46-18-67

The town must have been desperate for fresh produce because the ranks flew by faster than they could restock.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-51-49-76

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-52-11-39

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-53-35-07

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 13-55-15-95

Some fast downtime for chatting (love bottomed out) and restocking.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-13-50-41

Orchid finally gets that tv she has always wanted.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-14-04-11

Still flying through the ranks.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-15-53-07

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-16-54-67

They are almost out of inventory, so they might have to go home soon.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-25-34-24

I forgot the flower making stands out back.  The shop is closed for a few days.  Lavender has a gold badge already, but Orchid has only just gotten her bronze one.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-28-49-81

Instead of a bathroom, they have a shower room.  It goes unused since it has been raining for days.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-35-13-60

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-36-18-90

Now that Orchid has a gold badge and Lavender has made a mass amount of flowers, they top up their love bars and then get ready for the next business day.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-42-42-96

Orchid said yes because her aspiration is in the red.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-43-10-07

He’s not much to look at and she ends the date as soon as she hits platinum.  She has a business to run anyway.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-47-49-03

Almost made it to the end..

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-52-50-34

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-53-00-06

And there it is.  Alisha Bryan gives us the last star.

I’m super excited to see everyone’s fresh groceries when I get around to their lots.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-53-34-48

On in case you were wondering, when Lavender wasn’t restocking or flower arranging, she was out fishing with Olive O’Hara in the rain.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 14-56-34-06

Before leaving, restocking was done.  I had previously renovated the upstairs.  I got rid of all of the build/buy plants and filled it with ones they made.

Lavender got her silver restocking badge right here.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-07-52-62

After returning home, the sisters head out to Lavender’s lot, Fayers Fabulous Fun.  Orchid has 3 bolts with this girl, Kim Page.  We later find out that she is level 9 in politics, so we might see a new name in town at some point.

Ticket prices are set at $9,999.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-21-09-95

Lots of fishing going on for our playables.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-21-21-19

Kim enjoys paying $10,000 an hour to blow bubbles.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-23-10-25

Apparently there is no wilt state.  I had to hurry and put in a shower and make them both hit it fast.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-25-33-65

Bars are all maxed.  They earned about $500,000, so I dropped the entrance fee to $8 and let them meditate on triple speed.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-31-37-62

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-33-57-03

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-34-40-87

Donald makes an appearance.  It has been forever since he actually handed out reviews and awards.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-35-44-54

I’m not sure what is going on between Dominic and (brother) Oleander.  Dom keeps poking Oleander and he just cries over it.

Could Dominic be upset that he sent the twins to live with Paul last house?

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-37-58-22

Speaking of the Russell household.  Julia came, paid her $8, threw a tantrum and then stormed off.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-38-37-22

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-44-12-42

Another Russell.  Paul is here whining.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-46-16-55

No worries though. He has enough fun to give us rank 9.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-49-42-24

I saw Asparagus kissing Joseph and got confused.  It’s been so long since I have played that I forgot they are married.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-52-31-32

Lavender has a date with this guy so she can become platinum.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-56-02-30


Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-56-50-21

I didn’t realize Ellie was on the lot for a few seconds. Orchid gets a quick date because she was pretty unhappy too.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 15-57-22-95

Apparently Ellie doesn’t care who she marries as long as marriage is involved.  I lock them both in for her.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 16-00-33-01

The date was pretty lame.  Neither one actually wanted to be on it.  As soon as they reached rank 10, I had her end the date.

Author’s note:  Glitchy lot!  They closed the lot and tried to head home, but couldn’t leave.  They would run around waving their hands even when no one was there.  Sadly, I had saved right before this too.  It took several hours, but I did fix it, but I broke a lot trying.  I couldn’t load the home lot because they were at the comm lot.  When I would load into that, they were invisible and I was in build mode.   I turned it into a residential lot, that didn’t work.  I made a CAS sim and moved them into the lot.  That didn’t work.  I ended up moving out the CAS sim (she moved in with Ellie and Alisha).  I loaded that lot, teleported in Orchid and Lavender.  I had Lavender sell the community lot.  I still couldn’t load the home lot.  I couldn’t delete the community lot because the game insisted that Orchid and Lavender were still there.  I then thought, what about the babies.  I then teleported them and moved them in with the moms.  I was FINALLY able to delete the community lot.  The four of them moved out and moved back home.  I placed a new park, I had Lavender buy it again and then I gave them their money back.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 16-51-24-45

This is what it looked like when you were on a different lot and wanted to go to a community one.  Even though Orchid and Lavender were apparently there, it was unplayable/visitable.  I did leave it listed that they had a level 10 business, because I did actually get it there.  I will do it officially at some point too.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-15-57-00

Back at home and back in business, Orchid and Lavender head off to work.  Nanny D waited until poor Maple was almost dehydrated before giving her a bath.  Thanks to Arathea for the link to that bath.  It’s awesome since I don’t allow sims to have tubs unless they have pets/toddlers.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-17-07-10

Lavender tops her career!  Orchid is slacking at hers though.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-19-21-85

Birthday time!  The season got a bit messed up with the snafu, but I knew it was the last day when they went to the park.  I just advanced the day to Saturday and went from there.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-28-49-54

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-23-14-11

Spruce went first even though Maples is a bit older than him.  He wants to top athletics.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-28-55-21

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-27-00-98

Maple wants to be a Celebrity Chef.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-52-41-09

So, in order for Maple to do her aspiration, she first had to take money and buy a restaurant.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 17-55-38-07

I’ve never actually had success running a real restaurant.  I usually just put up a stand and sell flapjacks.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 18-00-33-79

I’m not sure what I’m doing, but so far so good.  Spruce does the host thing, which helped him get sales badges.  Maple had a maxed cooking skill, so that was what she did for a bit.  They traded back and forth until they both had gold sales badges and Spruce’s 0 cooking skill made it up to level 6.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 18-17-02-61

Yeah, I don’t know what I’m doing, but thanks.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 18-19-14-51

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 18-19-34-54

It’s pretty bad that it took me 5 ranks to realize that there was a door outside that led up to this club area.  No wonder they were getting stars when the restaurant was empty.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 18-27-12-98

Finally!  Now let’s escape while we can.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 19-18-26-32

They also own a pet shop.  It was at rank 0, so they must have neglected it really, really bad.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 19-34-29-27

The place is super tiny, so Spruce and Maple are kept out of the way by utilizing brand new robot stations.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 19-42-17-59

Yay, Donald is back!

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 19-43-42-26

Spruce got a nice break from robotics to restock and got a badge.  Thanks to Donald, we have another award too.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 19-51-28-60

They sold and sold their little hearts out and soon they got back to rank 5.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 19-52-57-47

Before leaving, ACR got Orchid and Kim to kiss.  There is an opening in politics, so maybe next season they can try out a relationship.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 21-31-36-75

Back home for good, they get the whole garden harvested and replanted…well when there weren’t stopping so that they could chat with Doreen.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-12 21-37-12-09

Taxes:  $33,800

The kids turned out great.  I am so glad I was able to figure out how to fix it.  I guess there was an invisible sim stuck there, but I had saved after Orchid and Lavender disappeared so I couldn’t use the batbox to fix ti.
