Thought this would be a fairly easy, yet challenging, challenge.  I totally do not understand how, why or what the heck I'm doing! :'(  Still trying to figure it out.  I know Honey Beeman must make for that only a measly $1,000 in two weeks.  (sigh)  Not giving up, just regrouping.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

So ... um ... a Sim just died on my retail lot, what are my options for dealing with the urn? :o I've never had this happen before in a challenge so I'm asking here, not only for this challenge but regarding future ones too.

I had 5 deaths by the end, summer heatwave got 'em good.

Nothing in the rules for these one. You can either put it in your in your inventory and forget it or release the poor soul to the netherworld.

A very nice person got me Seasons, Jungle Adventure and Fitness Stuff out of the blue, so I was able to give this a go. Thank you very nice person.

Bea Arthur (Bea rhymes with Bee) ended up with 28120 at 8am on MondaySunday of week 3.

Unlike the Sims 3 version of Seasons which I disliked immensely, I didn't mind this one too much.

I thought day 1 of week 3 would be Sunday? Can someone please clarify this for me? I'm nearing the end of week 2 in my game and I want to make sure I finish on the right day. I checked the calendar but it's not helping. :-\

I did not even catch the "Monday" part of your post, Dek. Yeah, if you indeed did go an extra day...hmmmm. Ugh. :( Open up your file please, and double-check on that.

I'm really not sure how you figure out how much she, Honey Beeman, made, but on Sunday day 3 her household income was $27,997.  Nothing left in retail and a lot of honey cake left to sell.  Hope I did it right but nevertheless, I'm done.

Sorry about that @Deklitch, something that happened in real life has got me anxious lately and when I get like that I question and double check everything. *Sigh* I wondered if it was just a typo, I'm glad that's all it was. I should really go and wrap my challenge up now. *Shuffles out sheepishly*

Hehe -- you have definitely proven yourself as a "heavy hitter" this year, Rainbow. I'll be curious how you do in this one. There's such a huge gap between 1st and 2nd right now.

No problem @Rainbow Dash I am pleased you asked. If you hadn't, and I had realised it myself much later, I would have felt awful. Anxiety is an awful thing, having suffered with it since at least my late 20s (and probably earlier) I know it well. You have my sympathy.

My work as an accountant and doing payruns that run Monday to Sunday makes me think of Monday as Day 1 and Sunday as Day 7. I almost always give my responses at least first to challenges that end on day 1 of a week as finishing on Monday, but normally pick up the error. I think in this case, it was a combo of it being late Sunday night/early Monday morning and me needing to go to bed to dream about financial statements that made me not pick it up before posting.

@sone Yikes, five deaths?! :o Makes me glad I only had the one in my game, I kept the urn in my Sim's inventory as I didn't want the ghost upsetting my customers. (Vlad already had that position filled, lol).

You really think so @Metropolis Man? That's really nice of you to say, thank you. :) I always think I can do better, I'm a Capricorn so go figure, I'm such a scrub, lol.

There are plenty of people here who are better at money making challenges than I am, not my strength I'm afraid but I practiced a lot for this one and I got off to a late start. (I waited to hear the teams ruling on something, I'm sure you can guess what it was, lol).

My little Honey Bee was a busy little bee, earning $135,250 in the end. :)

I actually had a go at this challenge.  I usually just lurk, and enjoying reading about the different challenges, but I thought this seemed quite easy and straight forward and I just might do okay at it.

My Sim had in her account by Week 3 Sunday 8am a total of $73,239

Is this your first tournament challenge @crstasse? Because if so, that's really impressive. :)

I can relate, I used to lurk around all the challenges for years, I used feel intimidated by all the rules but then I started reading every thread and became interested. I was so excited to see a Vampire challenge last year (I'm a huge occult/supernatural fan) I decided to jump in and I finally became a regular player this year.

I guess what I'm just to say is that you remind me of how I first got into these challenges, it's good to see someone come out of lurking and give it a go, I hope you stick around. :)

Thank you so much for making me feel welcome :) I really like challenges and play a lot of them just not in a competitive field like this, even though this is more fun competitive challenges I sometimes just get a bit overwhelmed by the rules.  I'm glad I gave this one a go. 

Your enthusiasm and positive comment really makes me want to continue with these challenges.  Thanks  :)

Aw thanks you're welcome @crstasse, I'm the same, I also play in non competitive challenges and wanted to give these ones a go for a long time. I always practice and ask the Challenge Team a million questions, it helps to put the rules more in perspective for me and makes me feel a little more secure. Like you, I try to (Mostly) pick the ones I think are fun or I might be good at, it's a good way to ease into I think. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. :)
