My oh my...it seems that we start out this entry with Jackie behaving inappropriately again...but then again that is one of his traits. I believe I like playing inappropriate Sims. Jackie went downtown on a Saturday afternoon to report his development in charisma to the courthouse, in the meantime I played the house. I noticed when I checked his status, he was talking to this woman. Just as I zoomed in on him, he was laying one on her. Heh. he did not lose his 'eternally faithful' status. Hm. The two went on to carry a conversation to 'get to know' each other better. Jackie, you Casanova, you!
At this point in time, Marion moves out. "It's about time," she quipped. "I have supported this family long enough. Let my brother the doctor, my brother the journalist, and my brother the scientist be the financiers. I wanna go to the firehouse every Wednesday night and play bingo. I am officially in retirement!" So off she went.
The same day her Aunt Marion moved out, Kaley had a birthday. What a cutie-patootie!
Everyday after Rosanna was through cleaning, Henry would always ask if she wanted to hang out. Of course she would always say yes. These two were so attracted to each other, no influence was needed from me to get them to pay attention to each other. They would carry on, all on their own. Hugging, kissing, making out. I happened to check what was available for Henry, and Propose Marriage was now in the menu. And so it was, as Henry was also wishing for it. A wedding party was planned for later that day, as the proposal took place at 3 am and everyone was tired and and needed sleep.
Before the party, Peter worked with his little sister some on speech development. Hm. Looks like Peter inherited his dad's and grandpa's muscles. Kaley learned to talk in one session.
The wedding took place in the Cartwright back yard. Heh, looks like Rosanne's formal attire is a pair of jeans.
Become An International Super Spy - Boo! The founder, Shane Cartwright already did this
No Sense of Humor
However, I really like this couple. They were moved out as unplayables in Sunset Valley, moved in with Marion. You will see them again in Monte Vista as a splinter from the founding family. Rosanne is 9 days to aging up to adult.
This guy stood in the back yard all night long after the party was long over and kept throwing rice over and over. Heh. He stayed until morning, and then all the next day making himself at home eating, watching TV and talking with the new maid (who happened to look alot like Rosanne). Finally Wendy asked him to leave.
Melodie Parent came home on the bus with Peter. These two started throwing hearts for each other. But then....here is where Melodie's heart is...
??? What? I have never seen a Sim make it so blatently known they just want to be with another Sim because of simoleons. Get a pleasant memory of marrying a rich Sim..yes...but not saying right out, I wanna be with you because you have money? lolol I chuckled when I read this. It is true, the Cartwrights are up to almost a quarter mil now. Money is not an issue.
In the meantime, Wendy is three points away from fullfilling her LTW, and keeps throwing wishes to join the medical career. I don't think so.
This is Selena Bolech. She came home on the bus with Humphrey the next day. The game is throwing some nice potential mates. Heh. I wonder what bug is in Selena's bonnet???
Peter and Melodie went on a date, and was caught out late. The police brought Peter home in a police car with a screaming siren, and Jackie wasted no time reading his son the riot act.
Peter's dating snafu did not deter Jackie from reaching the top of his career the next day. Being the last of the Cartwright triplets to reach the top of his career, he is three days from his birthday to elderhood. Finally Jackie!!!
It was time for Kaley to grow up to child, and naturally a birthday party was held in the back yard. The Cartwrights had been moving swiftly up the financial ladder and finally remodeled a new patio area in the side yard, and also moved the garden to that side. Being that Henry had moved out of the house with Rosanna, there was now no one who could garden all the fantastic plants. Henry had recently received notice that he could now plant eggs and cheese, but then moved away. The gardening would now be up to Wendy who was a natural green thumb, but still had to develop her gardening skill.
The birthday party was a near disaster, not even close to the parties the Cartwrights normally hosted with lots of food and music. The birthday girl was so exhausted from playing all day long she cried and cried. Her parents would place her in the crib, only to be taken out again in an attempt to get her to blow out the birthday candles. Finally her Uncle Gene was able to persuade her to blow out the candles, and none too soon as a couple of guests had left exclaiming what a lame party it was.
Kaley finally blew out the candles, and took on the trait Evil.
She will be fun to play!
The day after Kaley grew up, her brother Humphrey took her to the pool. She kept splashing Sims in the face. Humphrey was not pleased. Humphrey however had been on a diet, and lost a good bit of weight that day. He came away from the pool looking much slimmer.
That night Wendy had a gig at the local diner to play guitar at a fundraiser for a local politician. When the fundraiser was over:
Wendy was a master guitarist, and thus a Master of the Arts. Everything she does now will be included in the Completion Challenge.
Kaley has the evil trait, and wastes no time sneaking up on everyone. Jackie really loves to spend time outside, especially since he had this wonderful patio installed, and had a gardening area developed for Wendy. Since Wendy has reached her lifetime goal, she can now spend time gardening, for which she is a natural. (I love these big flowers, they throw big pieces of 'sunshine' around which gives the Sim a 'sunshine' moodlet that lasts an hour. Nice.)
It was time for Jackie and Henry to grow up. In the usual Cartwright fashion, a big party was held on the side yard, now the nice remodeled patio. Jackie aged up first. I think the smoking jacket outfit will change.
Gene the world renowned surgeon was next. Gene never really fell in love with any Sims hard and fast, but the girl two pictures up with the blue female mowhawk flashed a 'heartbroken' thought with Gene's picture in it when he aged. They did date a couple of times, but it never developed along like the Henry and Rosanna relationship did. That girl lives next door to the Cartwrights, and is actually a Sim I made of my daughter who also plays TS3. If anyone is interested, she is available for download on the exchange.
Sim Xrabbite (Holly) followed Gene in the house and cried and cried. Gene immediately retried from his job so he could spend time romancing Xrabbite. :) I can't say no to my daughter, even in pixel form.
This is where I will end this entry of generation 2 for the Cartwrights in Sunset Valley. The next entry will move onto Generation 3. Next I will put a couple of cursory pictures and notes about what happened to Henry and Rosanna in Monte Vista. This is how I plan to blog the splinter families...just a few pictures and notes, mostly factual. The main part of the blog will be the founding family in Sunset Valley.
The Cartwrights in Monte Vista:
Henry and Rosanna moved into a lovely home in Monte Vista. Henry immediately set about getting his garden started, so he could have a Perfect Garden. He brought along perfect seeds from Sunset Valley to get it started.
After entertaining the folks who came by to welcome them to the neighborhood, Isabella and Bianca Monty, and Edwardo and Carlotta GilsCarbo, Rosanna visited the police station and got a job in law enforcement. Henry entertained the idea of quitting his job as a mad scientist but decided against it because the couple only had $1,800 in liquid cash. He hoped to get a couple of harvests under his belt from the garden, then he could think about retirement and staying home with his lovely Rosanne and taking care of his vegetable garden.
It wasn't long before Rosanne found out she was pregnant. (Hoping to get the hidden trait of 'no messes' since Rosanne was a maid in Sunset Valley). She is hoping for a girl.
A buglar came and stole the bathtub. heh. Luckily Henry had worked a couple of days and was able to replace it quickly. I thought maybe Roseann's 'brave' trait would kick in and she would fight the buglar, but no such luck.
Rosanne and Henry have a son who they named Breckin. So I pull out the NRaas Master Controller to see if he has any hidden traits.
Woah....he has two. He most certainly picked up the neat trait from his mother...but where did he get the burglar one? I check Henry.
There it is. Okay then I figure it came from the founder Shane Cartwright, who was in law enforcement. :) Yay for Completion Challenge points! Now Breckin just needs to meet his LTW. But then this leads me to think...why didn't Henry stop the buglar who took the bathtub? *shrug*
Henry takes a page from his brother's book and ages up into a smoking jacket. That will change. He aged up while upgrading a stereo for Goopy's dad, Eduardo GilsCarbo. Notice this picture is strategicaly placed so we don't see Rosanne's feet. Her workout clothes include the awesome flippers. heh
That is it for Generation 2. Stay tuned for :
The Cartwrights - Generation 3. :) *ASimWen is now gonna watch the Oscars*.
Have fun everybody, and keep on Simmin'!
