We had to scramble around to find a place we could afford that would fit all five of us on a really tight budget.
But we found it! It’s a cute little duplex close to the Courthouse so that Hetal will have a quick commute to work.
Of course, the house was about ALL we could afford.
At least everyone has a place to sleep, including the kitties.
If we eat in shifts, we’ll be all right until we can get a bit more money coming in.
Fortunately, Hetal wasn’t asking for all that much. We have each other, a roof over our heads, and a bedroom.
That bedroom part is very important.
I really hope she likes our new home. We wanted to scamper upstairs and get some alone time before Hetal’s mother got home from hanging out with her best friend.
But it was a new place, and we were trying too hard.
Nothing quite worked out as we planned.
Fortunately, Hetal said she had a better idea.
Our wedding night ended up just fine.
And I got to sleep by my wife for the very first time. Wife! Can you believe that!
I had sweet dreams. I hope Hetal did too.
When I got up the next morning, Hetal was already downstairs cooking me breakfast. I could get used to this.
Then came the moment of truth. My mother-in-law came home. Her name is Jin, and she looks terrifying.
But she immediately started cleaning all the dishes. Finally someone was cleaning up around here!
Cheshire headed outside a made a new friend.
I hope Dinah doesn’t get jealous!
I decided to have some fun with Jin.
It turns out I’m scarier than she is!
Of course, that might not have been the best idea for family relationships.
The view out the window is lovely. I can see just a bit of the fire house from here too.
But I swear, these crumb-filled plats just get left around everywhere! I just put my dirty plate down on the counter, and it’s still here! Disgusting!
Blah blah blah, yadda yadda. Talk to the hand. It’s talking to you.
I made sure that Dinah got extra cuddles while Cheshire was out roughhousing with some strange kitty.
But as I bent over, I had the most awful feeling.
Ugh! I hope I don’t have the stomach flu! That’s not the way to spend your honeymoon.
We now have idiots, and we’ve moved into an apartment! So far, the idiots are taking better care of the place than Allison did.
Gameplay note: I have Same Sex Try for Baby set on Twallan’s mod to impregnate randomly, so I have no idea who will turn up pregnant for a given baby chime.
The new apartment is 4603 Scarlet Lane.
Also, since Jenn was interested, here’s the link to the Cheshire Cat.
I discovered after falling in love with it that there is NO PLACE to put a double bed in either bedroom. Well then. Not sure what the logic was in that.After Allison and Hetal failed to get to the bed that I thought I had placed correctly, I managed to place one via moveobjects that works fine and looks OK. However, the long-term plan is to put it on a wider lot and expand the whole structure several squares. The Wonderlands can’t afford that right now of course.
Otherwise, the place is adorable. Money is tight, and it’s kind of fun for it to be tight. I’ve added a handicap to this legacy that I can’t buy No Bills Ever, so it should be longer before the household assets explode. I had to strip out most of the furniture to buy this place, even with the money Hetal and Jin brought in. Then after I started playing, I realized that the inflated price was coming from a ton of art on the walls. So they’re living on folding chairs, but they have a big Nicely Decorated moodlet all the time. I’m going to leave it that way because it seems so appropriate for Insanity :).
The new place is cute! And the rooms are nicely decorated. I'm glad that Hetal and Allison finally found a place to "celebrate", too.
Jin is awesome. I need to find her in my game and become friends.
I can't wait to meet the baby! Still planning on doing a whole pregnancy in one post? What mod do you use for Same Sex Babies? I might need that for Sebastian and Puzzle.
I really like all the art on the walls. And since I have no decorating instinct, it will be easier to add furniture than decorations anyway :).
I'm going to take a stab at getting all the way to the birth of the kid in the next post. I've only played about half a day farther than that, so I'd be essentially caught up again. Since this is a genetic legacy, I want to have a minimum of 3 kids in each generation. We'll see how that goes in this little apartment.
I just have Twallan's Woohooer for same-sex Woohoo. I assumed you already had that, since Sebastian and Puzzle were autonomously jumping in the sack all the time. I didn't think Woohoo could be autonomous without a mod.
Oooh! I do have WooHooer! I guess I've never really played with the settings… I'll have to do that next time I'm in game!
Three kids in that little apartment and no way to control them? I can't wait to see that!
The only thing I find creepy about Woohooer is that whenever I click a woohoo object and select Woohoo, it gives me the option of doing it with anyone on the lot. So when Allison frolics with Hetal, she also has the option to choose Jin. Ick.
However, autonomous Whoohoo is awesome. Allison and Hetal are really into each other :).
Yay, she is pregnant already!! 🙂 This is getting really exciting now. Glad that you have your idiots around!
The apartment IS very small though. Good luck with that.^^
I love the new house and I can't wait to see the new baby. I don't think that's the correct way to bond with your new scary witch mother-in-law though!!!
Thanks for the link! I might introduce Cheshire to Cookie one day soon. Neat house, but I think the duplex is for single sims, which is why you can only fit a twin bed.
I couldn't survive without my no bills reward.
Babies! I can't wait to see how he/she turns out.
I knew it was made with a single bed, but I hadn't realized it was physically impossible to place a double bed until I tried. And really — how often do sims stay single for a long time?
I really like the place, though. I wanted the place to be small because they're really strapped for money right now. I haven't tried expanding it, but here's hoping.
Good ol' shower woo-hoo saves the day. Or night. 🙂
That is insane that they made a house with no good place for a double bed, but it did look like a very small room. Glad you found a way to *squeeze* one in. *I killz me*
Funny that the idiots are cleaner than your *controlled* sim. 😉 I don't use any money cheats either, its more fun to work for it. And I agree that having the artwork with no chairs/table is just the right touch for this household.
The M-I-L doesn't look so mean, although if Allison keeps it up that will probably change… and she's a witch too, will witches autonomously throw spells and potions if they are in your household? That could be cool.
The kitty- she(?) looks kinda like my bob-tail calico, but my girl has more patches of color all over.
Baby already on the way, Allison wasted no time. Yay!
Somehow Blogger lost my WP account, and now I can't log back in. Stupid thing. And I lost the comment I typed.
I like the idea of having them move into a tiny house that they can barely afford, more realistic than the traditional way of building one room at a time. And the art on the walls makes total sense in a house of idiots; the passive moodlets are more important than chairs!
