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 :).
