Last round in the Eich house, Ericka picked a fight with just about every man in the neighborhood (not really but it seems like it). Tyrone and Julio both got careers in the athletic field and Tyrone excelled even though it's not his career of choice. Unfortunately Julio didn't have as much luck but continues to climb the athletic ladder to reach his life time want. Tia grew into a child and Darren grew into a teen declaring a life of knowledge. Lets see what they got up to in Round 2:
Here's a picture of the Eich's house ((sorry its dark)):
And the interior: First Floor
And here's Darren with his makeover and LTW:
We'll start off the week with Darren trying to get his first kiss. He invited over his friend Opal Raymond who he has a crush on.
At first she seems to reciprocate Darren's crush
but then she rejects him. Aw, poor Darren :(
Tia also has some bad news
((ugh, I don't remember leaving these kids in such bad shape))
Ericka wanted to go to a community lot, so she stopped by the mall.
She runs into Shannon Perry the good witch who shares her love of grilled cheese.
Kelly Teer also wobbles by with her gigantic twin baby belly ((this was a pretty good picture of Kelly's pregnancy that I wasn't able to get while playing their lot))
Back at the house, Tyrone gets a good chance card
And Juilo comes home with a promotion
That evening, Tyrone helps Tia with her homework to try and bring that D up to an A
((So I totally lost Tia's homework, whoops. She did homework for like 2 days straight to catch up, I think there were 4 on the pile))
The next day, Julio and Tyrone both bring home promotions
Ericka also did something useful and earned a cooking plaque
Tia was so busy catching up on her homework that I completely missed her transition
here she is all grown up, and now for her aspiration:
and wait for the lifetime want...
((well this is goign to be interesting...))
Well on the plus side, Tyrone gets another good chance card
and Julio gets another promotion
((side note: Julio has a huge crush on that guy he keeps bringing home from work -- 3 bolts of chemistry))
Tia heads out to the mall to buy herself a birthday present
((she got stuck with bad gym clothes and something else))
She also picks up cell phones for her and Darren
That evening, the headmaster came over for dinner
Tyrone gave him a nice tour of the house
And then they enjoyed a nice dinner of Salmon
Luckily the tour and dinner impressed him enough that he overlooked Tia's C in school
Unfortunately I had Ericka cooking dessert when she left for work, and she forgot to take the Berry Pie out of the oven
I don't know what's up with my sims and setting desserts on fire lately
It seems to be the Eich's lucky night because that evening, Tyrone is able to find a position in the Law career (after Darren fixed the computer)
Here are some shots of the the Eich kids in their new school uniforms
Don't they look spiffy?
And we'll round out the week in the Eich household with two more promotions
Scoring: 1 point for Ericka's cooking hobby plaque
((well that wraps up Eich round 2. This round was so-so nothing major really happened other than I almost lost the kids to the social worker for losing Tia's homework -- they really should add a feature like in university where all you have to do is click the kids and tell them to do homework instead of having to find it in the house. I really really really don't like Tia now... that lifetime want is going to be difficult ::grumble::. Other than that, I'm glad that the men are now on track with their respective careers. I wasn't able to get a teen career in the medical track for Darren yet though, so he's just been working on the associated skills. It's really nice to have teens that want to learn mechanical so they can fix things. Stay tuned for the Devivio's next))
