11. Hollie

Round 6
Hollie Family

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 12-18-55-00

Back:  Rose, Asparagus, Joseph
Middle: Allen, Becky, Brian
Front: Starla, Lauren, Galaxia

Last season was spent getting all the kids trained and aged up.  Joseph went on a makeover rampage at his Barber Shop.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 12-41-38-67

All the kids were in aspiration failure, so it was a mad dash to get wants filled.  Two want creativity points, three want logic points and 1 doesn’t care, she just wants to get a skill point and ran off to read.  Asparagus has no pressing wants.  Joseph wants a baby (omg) and Rose wants to fall in love and have a baby.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-05-39-84

I found this in Rose’s inventory, which means she has to drink it.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-06-44-18

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-08-37-89

Before and After.   Wow, she needs a makeover.  STAT.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-28-51-78

The game seems to be a bit confused.  A snow day with no snow.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-38-11-01

*I lost my photoshop actions for Sims 2, so we are stuck with this for now*
The kids got sent to school anyway and Starla and Galaxia were taught to study.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-45-09-98

I might need to put lighting outside, but for now Becky and Joseph play chess in the dark.  Joseph needs logic points for a promotion.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-47-01-56

Brian and Galaxia are at –57/-50 relationship.  Neither of them have a fight memory, so he must have just been mean to her.  He also has a negative relationship with Rose.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-37-56-67 Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-49-14-14 Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 13-51-27-58

Promotions galore around here!

I did play more of the family, but the game crashed back to here (losing only about 4 sim hours of play).  Then I took a month off to play Sims 3 and 4 again.

Sims2EP9 2016-06-03 06-29-28-11

An updated look around town.  I really need to buy some decorating skills.  The town looks like crap.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 08-05-44-91

I found out quite quickly that Galaxia did not learn to study the day before.  The visible homework is hers too.   Today, Brian, Starla, Lauren and Becky all brought home A+’s.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 08-22-23-63

I think our main focus the rest of the season will be poor Rose.  All work and no play has been hard on our little (un)romance sim.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 08-27-39-28

We quickly save, because this is the second or third time we have played this day.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 08-39-31-12

Brian and Galaxia woke up to finish their homework while Asparagus made the kids dinner.  Right before eating, they had a pokefest and became enemies.  The fight started after they ate.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 08-41-54-74

Becky cheers them on, but poor Lauren is very upset to see her siblings fighting.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 09-09-02-13

Man, hair and makeup really made a difference!  Rose was ready to meet someone special.

Three hours and 4 community lots later, Rose has not met a single man with positive attraction.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 09-10-17-36

At least she’ll get a raise?

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 09-13-53-36

Maybe she’ll switch teams?

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 09-19-02-94

Someone has taught both the whole Hollie family and Bernadette here how to chest pound.  Rose is still a n00b at it, but she gave it a good try.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 09-20-19-62

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 09-20-32-01

Rose:  I was hoping to get to know you, not some stranger.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 09-26-24-42

Rose convinced Bernadette to go on a date with her instead.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 09-29-30-35

Rose gets her first kiss and her first dream date.  She even takes a souvenir home afterwards.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-10-34-63

The next day, Asparagus tops his career!

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-12-31-64

Omg omg.  I’m afraid to unpause now.  Asparagus was walking towards the front door and got struck by lightning.

Whew…he lived.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-15-13-36

Well, this was unexpected!  Everyone is platinum after work/school today.  I do notice a lot of missing A+ wants missing, so I guess they did good at school.

Unless you are Galaxia.  I’m not sure why she is platinum.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-16-59-74

Speaking of that little devil.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-19-08-41

Becky came home and immediately passed out, which was a fear.   This was closely followed by Rose who never got a chance to sleep after her date.  She also has a bit of morning sickness going on.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-22-16-11

Sadly, it has come to my attention that all of the kids have started to put on weight, which made me realize that not a single one has maxed their body skill yet.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-23-47-65

Oops.  Only three made it to bed today.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-27-22-41

Joseph has a baby want, so I am keeping him occupied by skilling.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-31-40-49

Rose wants to woohoo in a bed, so she calls up Bernadette for a date.  They will also work on Rose’s want to fall in love too.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-35-33-41

It actually goes faster than expected.  A dirty joke, a pillow fight and a slow dance was all that they needed.  Now they both want to get engaged, although Rose also fears getting engaged.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-37-46-26

Rose decided to do it right then since she was platinum and wouldn’t suffer too much from the fear fulfillment.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-39-20-83

Rose continues to baffle everyone with her indecisions.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-50-23-97

The kids were all reading their physiology books when Rose did her maternity spin while cleaning up the dishes.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 10-59-47-59

Super wonderful season for the adults!  All six kids finished their physiology books before heading to school (although three had to walk because they missed the bus).

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 11-04-01-46

Nothing beats 60 pop ups for leveling.  They needed to get it out of the way because not only was it the last day of Fall, it was also the quads’ birthday tonight.

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 11-08-14-84

There was no time to throw a party, but at least they all got cake.  Right?

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 11-13-32-03

Sims2EP9 2016-07-21 11-11-21-74

I didn’t notice Lauren’s doubled aspiration, so she gets a grilled cheese secondary.

…..and then my power went out (110F degree heat index at 9am).  So, now I have to replay from who knows where I last saved and I don’t wanna.  Hopefully I get this played before August at this rate.

That above statement made me laugh.  It’s August 30th.  I have recently had my computer die, so I just went through a huge upgrade that ended up not going so well and I was without a computer for a lot longer than I would have liked.   For you guys, I just had my power outtage, for me, it has been months (in June and it is now just about September).  Rose has not topped her career (she’s level 8), but she does have Bernadette as a partner.  The quads are still child sized.  Please note that I lost all my psp actions, but I did have a major graphics card update.  You can see my new setup here.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 15-51-07-46

So, here is Rose after getting an early morning promotion to level 9.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 15-48-58-93

The way she got her early promotion.  I was about to send her back to work….but

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 16-08-44-29

Oops, I forgot that she had a great time on her date.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 17-57-58-88

After she vomited and went back to work, Asparagus came home and got his ltw completed yet again.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 18-00-46-22

Asparagus and Ashlee were chatting about his promotion when one of our new teens, Noah Hudson, walked by.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 18-03-18-65

Very productive day today!

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 18-06-26-09

Unfortunately, the kids were dropping like flies.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 18-09-57-83

I caught them celebrating their promotions.  I did not hear a lullaby thankfully.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 18-50-24-43

With a baby incoming, Rose called up Bernadette for a date.  She did not have a fear of engagement, so she proposed right off.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 18-58-13-33

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 18-58-25-62

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 18-59-12-57

The date was almost perfect after the engagement.  They ran up to the only double bed and had a bit fun.  Rose lost her fear of marriage and so they tied the knot and Bernadette moves in with $13,000.  Rose takes the last name of Robertson.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 19-15-38-59

Soon after, all the overweight kids started having their teen birthdays (again).  Please refer to the shots above as they will all just keep the stat rolls above.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 19-36-51-30

Birthdays were a big mess!  They all need some exercise, that’s for sure.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 19-49-13-34

I guess I have it set to randomize gender preference, which is a cool idea.  Everyone is straight except Lauren, who is now bi.

Rose and Bernadette have now moved out, making the house a bit smaller and easier to deal with.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 19-52-42-00

Joseph gets a good chance card and promotion.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 19-56-04-38

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 19-58-02-15

ACR got a workout after school.  Brian and Sherry O’Hara and Allen with Melody Tinker.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 20-00-53-79

Joseph nabs another promotion today.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 20-01-55-92

Everyone has the flu and only Brian can make the soup.  It’s so busy today that they had a hard time keeping the visitors out of the platters.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 20-05-13-12

Even Becky got her first kiss.  I was not happy that he’s an adult, but oh well.

The rest of that night was having all the kids reading physiology books.  The quads and Starla all maxed their body skill.  Galaxia was having fun issues and didn’t finish her book.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 20-23-04-21

It is not only Friday morning, but it is also the first day of Winter.  I do not have my Office installed, so I cannot get to my spreadsheet.

Sims2EP9 2016-08-30 20-58-38-56

…Office is now installed and they apparently paid $8,700 in taxes at the beginning of the season.
