Life is like a story. There are rules to follow and a background story to introduce you to the “characters”, but the bulk of the story develops over time and the ending hasn’t been decided at the very start. Or has it?
The neighbors are happy to see sims move into 5 Spruce Street (Hidden Springs) and hope that this eyesore gets fixed up. The sooner the better!
Euan and Patience realize that it is going to take a lot of creative thinking and elbow grease to make this rough gem sparkle again.
This area would make a nice starter garden.
Euan tried to move the fencing from the back corner but discovered that it was too warped and rotted to be of any use. The new fencing looks nice but will be painted at some point since white shows wear and tear more quickly than other colors.
Euan spent the rest of the day removing graffiti but didn’t appreciate the Sim U mascot making snarky comments during his “visit”.
“Go home, squid for brains, no one invited you!” Euan thought and continued whistling while he worked.
Patience quickly learns that dumpster diving is a disgusting way to earn simoleons.
She did find a nice couch and some gems/metals that more than made up for the stench and nausea.
There could be another reason for her tummy troubles.
Patience discovers a sweeter smelling way to make money.
Euan sells paintings while waiting for his garden to grow and become yet another source of much-needed income.
Patience isn’t sure which is worse … needing to unclog a toilet or going into labor at the exact moment she reaches for the plunger.
Addy’s Note: Surprise! SamelaRita made sure that the family grew sooner rather than later.
“Hurry up, Euan!”
Patience and Euan discover that while living on the outskirts of Hidden Springs is nice (less expensive & lovely views), it takes longer to get to places like the hospital.
Their cozy little home is about to get noisier and more crowded.
The triplets become toddlers on Thursday (Leisure Day) and that’s when things get busier than before.
Euan and Patience continue taking turns venturing outside so neither gets stir crazy from being housebound for days on end.
What a difference one week makes!
The McPhail family increases from 2 sims to 5.
Dumpster diving has “gifted” them a few decent pieces of furniture.
However, the most noticeable differences can be seen inside the house.
More changes to come in Week TWO!!!
