A Dymnd Family Remodeling
« on: July 08, 2012, 03:45:20 PM »
Hi everyone. Ok I have finally decided to be brave and post one of my Families. I want to share a personal project that I'm doing. Please be patient as this is my first time.  :D

You know that wonderful Union Cove that we have from our awesome Forum for our awesome Forum? Well there's a lil area that I consider Slumville. Nice homes but a bit rundown. Has a lot of potential. So my Sim family, Malissa, Caesar, Makaila Trent have moved into Faded Glory on Ambitious Alley 876. That little block above the stadium.



The idea is to buy the house cheap, live in it, spice it up, then sell it. Afterwards the Trents move on to a different house and do the same thing. Now here's the lot.







I'm thinking it would be a cool way to make money while not doing anything at all. Everyone is still living life as normal. Getting into trouble as normal. Just every chance the family gets a little cash to spare they'll make some improvements on the home. Which is what we do anyway right?

Hope you guys will enjoy watching how they progress. When I come back I'll introduce the family.

Thanks for viewing!

Ok I'm back. Sorry for removing a partial post earlier. Seems I hit post instead of preview.  :-[

Let me introduce you to the family:

The Trents have moved from place to place for many years. It is hard on the oldest but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Coming from the town of Appaloosa Plains, will this be the perfect town to settle in for good? To make a name for themselves that they can be proud of? Something other than Son of a Lamma? Crazy Baby Momma? Celebrity Diva? Well that one isn't all that bad.  8)

Malissa

Single Mom. Family Oriented. Hopeless Romantic. Neurotic.

Fleeing from the scum she painfully must call Baby Daddies. Now, after four long years, she is a successful CEO and is ready to leave the lying, cheating, and stealing nightmares behind. Bringing (or to some dragging) her two children to a town where she knows nothing and no one. But will all her heartache discourage her from loving again? Who knows and who cares!? One thing Malissa is great at is focus.

Her focus once was loving the manipulative heartbreaker clepto - who stole her heart and left her alone with a baby. Then she focused on loving the loner clepto - who stole her car and left her alone with another baby. Excellent job - two babes, no money, and no Prius. Perhaps it's time for a new focus. Wouldn't you agree? Now her plan was to put her business skills to work. What better way to avoid your own problems then to fix other problems?



Caesar

Teenager. Teenager. Teenager. What more can I say?

Average grades, rebellious, thinks his life sucks. Has the manipulative mojo of his father and the sensativity of his mother. So like most teens he is struggling emotionally and intellectually. Why should he have to suffer because mom has bad tastes in men? But deep down he know she only wants whats best for him and his sister.



He is really not happy to have left his first girlfriend behind and has a plan to make mom's life miserable. What is he going to do here? Will he ever love again? Or will they only see him as a sorry, sensitive, sap?



Takes very good care of his baby sister while mom is working hard and there's no one he loves more and would never leave her. He would do anything for her. Even sell his prize bug collection.



Jazmyn

Don't let her cuteness fool you. We are just so excited that she has none of her father in her. She is all the essence of her mother. And has her big brother wrapped around her wee wittle finger.



So now you have met the family. Will they be happy here or is Malissa just so dedicated to ignoring her heartache that she will uproot her life on a whim? Though a bit lost right now, Caesar is a great artist and also wants to succeed in the art of Science. What kind of life will he make here? And will Jazmyn do well here or will she tune it out focus on her imaginary friend?

It was a sad yet funny introduction to the family. I am curious to see how the home turns out!

So now that we have completed the formalities lets take a peak at the Trent's first day in their new place...



Everything is as it should be. Mom and Caesar are going at it.

"NO I will NOT clean up the shrubbery!" Pouts Caesar. "Why can't we hire people to do it? We are celebrities!!!"



"Stop being such a DIVA!! It doesn't suit you. There can only be one in this house and since I pay the bills, it will be me. Now if you don't get the shrubs up I won't get that pond re-done."



So since The Diva didn't like the way the house looked with her bedroom set, she chose to get all new furniture that was more appropriate for the ambiance of their new home. And since she hadn't started her job yet this would due just fine for now. The best part is that they can store it for the next home.



Phase 1: Furniture - complete

Phase 2: Neurotic episode is in effect



"Oh god mother ok, OK! I will remove the shrubs."

*Sniff, sniff* "Thank you, honey. I don't know what I would do without you. Now don't stop at this one. Let's get them all up."



...And so as our day comes to a close, so does the argument btw Divas.

BEFORE


AFTER


Phase 3: Pond Shrubbery - complete
(Is it me or does it look like Caesar just hid the shrubs instead of getting rid of them? I won't be telling.  :-X)

Maybe tomorrow someone would want to go to work?

I can't wait to see the final product!
Just a little FYI I don't think we are aloud to use colored ink on the forum. I'm clearly not a monitor, but I just thought I should mention it.

My goodness guys thanks so much for viewing my story. I don't know what to say  :'(

(Mark this post that Platnum was speechless!)

Spork-tastic, it's ok if you aren't a Monitor. Being part of the forum makes you family in my book so your FYI's are A-OK with me.

Ok at first I wasn't going to use these because there wasn't much remodeling going on. But I am so excited that I just said, what the hay. I'm sharing my Sim family... with my Sim family.  ;D

Before I begin I want to thank whoever created the townies here in Union Cove. You are awesome. This was a happy surprise as these are my favorite TV family in movie history. From the original series to the later movies. But I must disclose that I used the correct spelling.

And on to the show - sorry I mean story...


So, we're on day two in the crappy new house. And it looks like some neighbors have come to welcome our new family to the neighborhood. I am proud to introduce...

Gomez and Morticia Addams!! (applause, applause)

"Greetings." Says the woman in a tone as dark as her dress, "My name is Morticia Addams. Welcome to the neighborhood dear."



Malissa stares in awe at her paleness and dark ensemble. "Hello. I'm Malissa. I absolutely love your dress. I am so happy you stopped by. I didn't think ANYone would want to come within 50 feet of this place."

"And this is my husband Gomez. Say hello darling."

"Hey! What do ya say!" Gomez greets excitedly.

Malissa responds quickly, "I don't want to be seen out here. Back in out old town the Paparazzi were viscous. Please, please come in. We were just making a salad."

She leads them into the kitchen. "This is my son, Caesar. Honey, come and meet Gomez and Morticia Addams. They came to welcome us to the neighborhood."

Caesar looked at him strangely and took his hand slowly. "Uh, hello! How's it goin? I'm Caesar. Say, has anyone told you you look a little like Raśl Juliį? Or what's that other guy's name? That one back in the old days?"



Malissa sighed and rolled her eyes. "Caesar! Don't be rude. And you are referring to John Astin. I'm not sure about Raśl, but I can see John Astin. Geez you make it sound like it was the Stone Age. I'm sorry Gomez. Sometimes I just want to bash him with a skillet." She playfully slapped him upside the head. "Do you have kids?"

Gomez laughed loudly, "HA HA! Oh yes. We have two little demons. And I'll tell ya. There are times we'd like to hang them in the dungeon by their toes for more than the usual couple of hours."

Caesar's face went blank.

Malissa laughed. "We're about to sit for dinner. We have plenty to share. If you don't mind the riddled lettuce. The house came with a horrid refrigerator. Heaven forbid it keeps anything fresh. I'll be replacing it as soon as I start working again."

"We'd love to. Wouldn't we darling?" Morticia said smoothly as she gestured Gomez to follow Malissa to a chair.

She grabbed two plates and sat down at the table. She said to Malissa, "Oh, my dear. Fridges aren't very good a rotting food evenly. You should come by sometime I'll show you a more efficient way."

Malissa coughed in reply. Nearly choking on her food.



"I thought we'd never get neighbors." Said Gomez snatching his last morsel quickly as Morticia gracefully took his plate. "I just can't understand how anyone could pass this up!"

Morticia chimed in dreamily handing the dishes to Malissa, "So dark. So dank. And the garden..." and glides over to the sofa

Gomez walked into the living room puzzled. "Yes, say where are all those lovely plants?!"



Malissa looked like she wanted to vomit. "Garden?!?! You mean those horrid dead branches? They were disgusting! I had my son remove them at once. It would look better if a missle landed in this yard."

Morticia looked up excitedly. "Oh Gomez, we must invite her to the next Addams Family Reunion. She would love the Missile drops! Oh Malissa you'd love the explosions, the lights, the carnage!"

Gomez ran and knelt by his love. "Oh Cara Mia, I love the way you talk explosions and carnage!" Then where pulled out some withered flowers and presented them to her.



"Bubele," Morticia responded lovingly.

Malissa looked at her new friends and shook her head. Will there be a love for her?

The Day of the Lizard...

After exchanging numbers, Morticia and Gomez bid farewell to their new neighbors.

After Malissa and Jazmyn were settled in bed, Caesar went out for a walk. He wondered what his old girlfriend was doing back home. Was she even thinking of him as he was thinking of her? The sunddenly he was snapped out of his trance by a lizard at his feet.



"Oh yea. You will be a great little irritation to the Parental Unit." Caesar picked up the lizard and ran home.

He pulled out his iguana tank he brought from home. He thought he'd never be able to find such a good friend as his spotted iguana. He was so sad he had to let him go. He pulled out the rocks and gravel sadly. He has lost everything coming to this stupid town. He moved over his turtle tank and began setting up.

"This is a good sign." He smiled. "She made me leave my lizard. And I find another one. Now you two play nice" He stares at his tanks with hopes for a good day at school tomorrow and heads to bed.


Monday Morning...

Malissa got up quietly. She cherrished her short hour in the morning where she can gather her thoughts for the day.



"Ok so where do we start with this shack?" She said to the cactus, "There's so much to do. Well we need to make money so I guess I'll start with the garden. Yes, good plan." She nodded to the cactus and finished up her breakfast.

About thirty minutes later, she heard the sound of a horn outside.



She took a deep breath as the headed toward the car. She was so nervous but excited. Nobody knew anything about her past. Clean slate. "New beginning, new beginning," she recited to herself as she hopped in the passenger side.



"Good morning, Ms. Trent." Said the nice you lady kindly, "I'm Jo. Let me be the first to welcome you to High Products Industries."

She eyed the woman next to her. "Thank you. Good morning. You are a little.. uh.. underdressed to be my driver."



Jo eyed her back before pulling out. "No, ma'am you are just fine. And so am I." She cleared her throat watching the road. "We.. uh.. have been looking forward to your arrival. I hope you find a happy home with us at HPI."

HIGH PRODUCTS BUSINESS BUILDING


Jo pulled up in front of the buidling. "You have a great day, Ms. Trent. You'll have another driver escort you home. I'm off to head the corporate training camp. Gotta make sure our our new IT guys keep out High Products... well, High Products!" She smiled.

Malissa chuckled, understanding the attire. "Jo, you got spunk. And you have made my morning," and waved as she drove off. Then she headed for the door and took another deep breath. She exhaled.

"Showtime."



She walked in and stood at the fron desk. She was appalled.

"What's this!?! Where is the receptionist? This is a DISGRACE. I will need to hold a meeting about this first thing. Now who's going to direct me to my office? I hope MY assisstant has a better work ethic." And she was so worried about her first day...


Ceasar got up nervous about his first day of school. Then he remembered his new secret pet. He got up and headed for the shower expecting to get an earful from his mother about the lizard. When he saw the door closed he ran to the bathroom. He hurridly showered and got dressed. Maybe he'll be gone before she wakes up.

After getting dressed walked back to the kitchen. he suddenly stared strangly at the bowl on the table. He was sure he cleaned the kitchen.



Then he realized with relief that she had already gotten up and left. He forgot that she had to be at work early for her first day. He waited the sitter and headed for the bus.



"Wow what luck! She didn't even come into my room. Guess she really needed that hour to talk with the cactus.

When he got to school he had a new sense of calm. He felt good about his first day. A fresh start. New people new image. Nobody knew about his past. So far so good. And he didn't want to jinx it with worried about his old life in Appaloosa.



"New Begninning, new beginning," he recited to himself as he walked in the door.


Jazmyn woke up wondering where her big brother was. He can't be still sleep. Mom was already gone. But she was used to that. She looked around the dimly lit room.

"Boinky," she thought, "where is everyone?"

"Remember Jazzy?" Boinky thought to her, "Today is the first day of school. We have to meet the babysitter today."



"I don't want to meet the new sitter." Jazmyn pouted. "Everytime a sitter comes Caesar doesn't want to spend time with me."

"Oh don't be like that Jazzy. You know he's just making sure he's good enough to take care of you while he's at school. She has to be good for you to even stand a chance."

"Well that's not how I see it. I'm so glad we left that little goodie goodie at Apoosa."



Jazmyn smiled playfully. "I know it was hard on my big brother but it was for his own good." She glanced at Boinky and giggled. "Oh don't look at me like that. I'm not bad. I'm just picky. And my big brother needs to stop falling for babysitters. They don't even go to school. So they must be stupid. I know what's best for him."

Suddenly she heard the door open...

ERIKA FALCON


Jazmyn froze in her diaper as Boinky shudered and disappeared.

"Well hello sweety," said the girl sweetly as she walked over to her crib. "I'm Erika, how are you. You are soo adorable." It was like she was a different person.



Jazmyn reached for her. She didn't know if she was going to like anything about her but she was hungry and desperatly needed to chat with the potty. Erika picked her up out the crib and headed out the room.



"I can't believe that jerk broke up with me. He couldn't even tell me himself the idiot. He had his little sister tell him in a doodle?!?" She growled angrily uner her breath.



"I swear I need to quit this job and go back to school. Guys must think I'm stupid or something."

She put Jazmyn down so he could go potty. She wondered what this crazy stupid girl was talking about. "I hope she's not gonna gripe all day about some guy. But that was pretty mean to have the baby sister tell her. How could she doodle something that that. It would have been much better with blocks."

Now that she had emptied her bladder she wanted to fill her tummy with food.



But Erika wasn't paying attention to her. "Oh my goodness! This is appalling. Do I have to feed myself now?"

Erika turne around. "Ok Ok sweetie I'm sorry. Pipe down. I'm coming." She picks her up an puts Jazmyn in her highchair.



"Ok... now what," Jazmyn eyed her with disgust. "Maybe the doodle was easier for you to understand."
