Category: Trailer Park Challenge


Welcome back to the White house! This is Babs, here, telling you all about how things are going in our trailer.

snapshot_80028a30_a1f60684

First thing when I get a nice new bed, my kids go and steal it.

snapshot_80028a30_c1f6070e

We were getting low on money, and work wasn’t gonna pay me for not going for two more days. I needed a date in a hurry. So it seemed like a great thing when Shea came by. But then he got all weird, and I had to send him home.

snapshot_80028a30_e1f60774

That girl, I swear, she doesn’t have an ounce of sense. Taking a bubble bath in the broken tub!

snapshot_80028a30_61f607e2

Then she stayed in there and played tub pirate. Silly girl.

snapshot_80028a30_a1f60800

That night was Ham Boy’s birthday! Everybody was super excited, except Ham Boy.

snapshot_80028a30_41f60829

He’s a cutie, and has his daddy’s nose.

All my kids look like their daddies. I kinda wish I had one that looked like me.

snapshot_80028a30_c1f630e3

Lady Bird is getting to be a real good singer. It’s a good thing since she wants to be a rock star someday.

snapshot_80028a30_a1f6311e

I guess being mean to her brother is also good training.

snapshot_80028a30_41f63150

Poor little Ham Boy’s got something wrong with his teeth. But I can’t afford no dentist, so he’ll have to put up with it.

snapshot_80028a30_81f631e0

Birdie cooked up some toaster pastries for everybody for breakfast. Awful nice of her.

snapshot_80028a30_21f6324f

She didn’t want to go to school. I made her, though. I don’t need no lazy teenager hanging around the house all day.

snapshot_80028a30_a1f632ff

The bills were $120! I only had a little over $200 in my purse, and work wasn’t going to pay me for not coming in for another day. I needed some money, like now.

snapshot_80028a30_41f6333e

So I went on a date. My guys are always so good about giving me those little gifts afterwards.

snapshot_80028a30_c1f63407

Birdie don’t go to school long enough. She was home before I was through my date. At least she stayed out on the sidewalk and played with the dog.

snapshot_80028a30_61f63454

Drew brought a girl home from school, but she didn’t want to play with Drew since he was stinky. Birdie didn’t mind the stink, though.

snapshot_80028a30_e1f636b1

I worked real hard and managed to do 2 dates in 1 day.

snapshot_80028a30_41f6371d

Then I taught Ham Boy to be a big boy and use the potty.

snapshot_80028a30_c1f6378c

My date left me a nice gift, but we already have one of those. So I guess we’ll sell it at the yard sale.

snapshot_80028a30_21f63818

Birdie went in to tuck in her little brother. Sweet girl.

snapshot_80028a30_a1f638c2

And Ham Boy loves Webster. Hmm. I got 3 kids, so I should probably think about getting another dog. Maybe with the yard sale money.

snapshot_80028a30_21f63951snapshot_80028a30_61f63b6e

I had a couple more friends over. I get kinda lonely if I don’t have a guy over.

snapshot_80028a30_41f63c52

Ham Boy loves getting tickled.

snapshot_80028a30_e1f63cc1

Drew brought Tommy Ottomas home from school. That boy can’t sing worth a darn.

snapshot_80028a30_21f63e1b

“Now, Birdie, always remember not to let any boys take advantage of you.”

“Actually, Momma, I don’t like boys anyway.”

 snapshot_8031f69e_43d4cfce

Birdie went over to her daddy’s house for her brother’s birthday. I guess it was a good time.

snapshot_8031f69e_23d61ca1

I heard Hun got married to Sarah, too. Guess I don’t have a chance no more.

snapshot_80028a30_83e8ba0a

Anyway, I was busy changing diapers. Silly Ham Boy’s potty trained, except for naps.

snapshot_80028a30_c3e8ba46

I made sure to have Makoto over for a date after that.

snapshot_80028a30_63e8badb

I tried to get him to knock me up, since work’s just about to quit paying me for not going, but it didn’t work.

snapshot_80028a30_83e8bbd1

Birdie keeps coming home when I’m in the middle of dates.

snapshot_80028a30_83e8bbec

Ham Boy sure does like to eat. He’ll even eat dog food if he doesn’t have a bottle.

snapshot_80028a30_63e8bd44

Look what came to our town! It’s our very own Wal Mart! I headed on down there ’cause it’s time for Birdie to get some new clothes.

snapshot_80028a30_43e8bdd9

It’s got a photo booth! About time I got some pictures of me to hang up back home, in case I forget what I look like.

snapshot_80028a30_43e8be1e

Then I met an old flame, and this time I was able to get knocked up!

snapshot_80028a30_43e8bef0

I didn’t forget to get Lady Bird’s new outfit, though.

 snapshot_80028a30_23e8bfa8

Our good old computer broke. Well, it was free, so no big deal, I guess. Drew said he wanted to take it apart so I let him have it.

snapshot_80028a30_63e8bfd2

“Birdie, how about you help me out and clean the place up? I’ll give you some new clothes if you help me out.”

“Only if I can do whatever I want with my hair.”

“Honey, it’s your head. Just clean the kitchen and the bathrooms.”

“Okay, Momma.”

snapshot_80028a30_83e8bfef

I took Drew out to the garden so we could take care of the plants. Man, all those bugs.

snapshot_80028a30_e3e8c039

Birdie’s a good little cleaner.

snapshot_80028a30_43e8c0df

Birdie got her makeover. The outfit’s cute. I wish she’d kept her pretty hair, but like I told her, it’s her head.

snapshot_80028a30_83e8c165

Ham Boy learned a nursery rhyme! He’s all teached up now for his birthday.

snapshot_80028a30_23e8c1f2

A nice dog named Alegra came by, and I hoped maybe she’d stay, but she ran off after a while.

snapshot_80028a30_c3e8c23f

Makoto brought over a karaoke machine, but we’ve already got one. Oh, well, the yard sale’s coming up soon.

snapshot_80028a30_83e8c2a2

It’s a good thing I got the Energizer to keep me happy. I don’t get any sleep with those darn kids always in my bed.

snapshot_80028a30_23e8c3ae.jpg

“Don’t eat your sparky cornflakes so fast, you’ll choke!”

“School bus is outside, Momma!”

snapshot_80028a30_43e8c441

Ham Boy needed a bath. Oh, boy, was he filthy. I don’t know what that child gets into.

snapshot_80028a30_43e8c488

I was feeling a little down, so of course it was time for a date!

snapshot_80028a30_e3e8c4e8

“Doggie food yummy!”

snapshot_80028a30_83e8c5a6

My girl’s such a good singer.

snapshot_80028a30_83e8c5e3

My guys keep bringing me those roses. The gift cards sure do help out.

snapshot_80028a30_c3e8c65csnapshot_80028a30_c3e8c66a

With the gift card and the money from my job for not going, I got a new bunk bed. Birdie’s got her own room now! There’s room for a top bunk in case she gets a sister.

snapshot_80028a30_43e8c6aa

“Happy birthday, punk!”

snapshot_80028a30_83e8c6e0

Amin and I fell in love! He’s my 19th love. Only one more to have what I always wanted.

snapshot_80028a30_03e8c71d

“Don’t worry, Ham Boy. Momma’s busy, but I’ll take care of you.”

snapshot_80028a30_83e8c79e

We’re having mac & cheese for the birthday meal. Thanks, Birdie!

snapshot_80028a30_a3e8c7bc

And now it’s time for them birthdays. Drew’s looking less like his daddy as he gets older. He wants to make lots of money, just like Birdie.

snapshot_80028a30_43e8c7d7

Ham Boy’s my little cowboy. He looks even more like his daddy.

snapshot_80028a30_23e8c878

Just a couple more days until I have another baby!

Just in time, too. I only had one more day of work paying me not to come.

snapshot_80028a30_43e8c890

These kids, always playing in the tub. I wish I had time to play in the tub.

snapshot_80028a30_03e8c935

Drew likes to cook as much as Birdie does. He made more mac & cheese. Good for me, since this baby’s making me hungry.

“Heh, did you know Momma got left at the alter?”

“I heard that, boy! Don’t make me come over there!”

snapshot_80028a30_c3e8c97c

Birdie tucked her brother in before she went to sleep in my bed.

snapshot_80028a30_43e8ca00

I got me a gold gardening badge!

snapshot_80028a30_23e8cad7

I also remembered to hang up my cool picture from the photo booth.

snapshot_80028a30_03eca8e7

As soon as it was light out, it was yard sale time! We didn’t have a ton of stuff to sell, but it was a pretty good haul. I had some rocks and bones, too, but I figured I’d let folks buy the good stuff first.

snapshot_80028a30_03ecaa17

Business was good! I was real busy.

snapshot_80028a30_83ecaac9

Those kids of mine weren’t any help at all. They just hung out with each other all day.

snapshot_80028a30_63ecab6b

We were running out of stuff to sell, so I tried to dig up some more junk. But I was too busy with selling stuff.

snapshot_80028a30_83ecac0f

Ham Boy spent most of the day fishing. It’ll be good for him to learn how to fish.

snapshot_80028a30_a3ecac21

I ended up selling everything, and making a whole lot of money! $11,000!

snapshot_80028a30_63ecac3f

I also met a super hot guy. I’ll have to see him again.

snapshot_80028a30_83ecacb1

I used some of the money to buy a top bunk bed.

snapshot_80028a30_a3ecad28

And then most of the money to build a greenhouse.

Now our lot is all fancy-like.

snapshot_80028a30_23ecaeae

After all that, I really needed a date, so I invited Ashley over.

snapshot_80028a30_43ecafa2

Always good to see my kiddies making friends.

snapshot_80028a30_83ecb106

I stayed up late talking to the plants to make yummy vegetables, even though I was really hungry.

snapshot_80028a30_e3ecb1c1

I shouldn’t have done that. I had a miscarriage and lost the baby.

snapshot_80028a30_63ecb1d9

“Ham Boy! Come down out of the ceiling now!”

snapshot_80028a30_83ecb21e

I was super hungry, so I chowed down on a couple of plates of leftovers.

snapshot_80028a30_c3ecb2c6

Then I went to sleep for a really long time. When I got up, the kids were already at school.

snapshot_80028a30_c3ecb35b

I needed a date, of course, so I asked Jihoon to come over.

snapshot_80028a30_a3ecb38e

I’m glad my kiddies can keep each other company while I’m busy.

snapshot_80028a30_a3ecb40c

It’s nice that Birdie likes to cook, too. She’s always making yummy dinners.

snapshot_80028a30_23ecb423

I’m in love! With 20 guys! I think I’m gonna be happy forever.

snapshot_80028a30_a3ecb4d6

“Now that we’re besties, let’s woohoo again!”

It took me 3 tries to get knocked up. I had to do it right away on account of work only gave me 1 day off after my miscarriage.

 snapshot_80028a30_83ecb527

Ham Boy got a new haircut! He also got a bronze fishing badge. I guess he’ll help keep us all fed.

snapshot_80028a30_43ecb62c

I was super hungry now that I was knocked up again. Got to keep this baby fed so I don’t have another miscarriage!

snapshot_80028a30_e3ecb6c0

Drew and Ham Boy get along good.

snapshot_80028a30_e3ecb732

This baby was making me sick all the time.

snapshot_80028a30_43ecb77b

I still spent a lot of time out talking to the plants. If we save up enough money we can get a juice machine and I can make healthy juice for my kiddies.

snapshot_80028a30_83ecb792

Birdie always cleans up all the dog pee as soon as she gets home from school. She’s a good kid even if she don’t listen to me.

snapshot_80028a30_63ecb882.jpg

I think Webster might be lonely. Maybe we should get him a friend.

Birdie and Ham Boy are having a water balloon fight! See, that’s what kids should be doing in the summer, playing in the yard.

snapshot_80028a30_03ecb8f6

Then Ham Boy asked Birdie to help him with his homework. One less thing for me to do.

snapshot_80028a30_23f07fb0

I cooked up one of those fish Ham Boy caught. It was yummy.

snapshot_80028a30_c3f07ff7

Either the fish made me fat, or this baby’s showing itself. I kinda want another girl.

snapshot_80028a30_03f0801b

Pretty sure Ham Boy did get fat from the fish.

snapshot_80028a30_63f08060

I actually got to sleep in my own bed! Had to share it with Birdie, of course.

snapshot_80028a30_83f082c3

I headed down to the Wal-Mart to buy some new clothes for Drew.

snapshot_80028a30_43f082ef

I also met a really hot guy.

snapshot_80028a30_a3f08404

We had ourselves a great time.

snapshot_80028a30_83f084c9.jpg

Back home, I found a letter from one of my sweeties in the mailbox!

snapshot_80028a30_23f085ee

Ham Boy won a spelling bee, and won us more than 200 bucks!

Sharla Ottomas over there came home on the bus with Drew.

snapshot_80028a30_23f086fc

The kiddies had a great water balloon fight.

snapshot_80028a30_a3f0886d

They kept playing until it got late.

snapshot_80028a30_43f08957

Aw, Drew made sure to tuck his brother in.

That’s it for now. See you later!

Hey, everybody, it’s Babs again. Boy, have I had a time! Let me tell you all about it.

snapshot_80028a30_a031c5daIt was my wedding day, and all my friends and Hun’s showed up in their fanciest clothes.

snapshot_80028a30_2031c62c

We rented us a fancy wedding arch, and of course we got a keg.

snapshot_80028a30_6031c693

Everybody was real excited about the keg.

snapshot_80028a30_4031c6b7

“Hun, I’m so, so sorry about yesterday. I promise it won’t happen again. Hey, mister, are you our minister?”

“Minister? What’s that now?”

snapshot_80028a30_2031c76f

“Hun, I love you so much…”

snapshot_80028a30_8031c78b

“Hold up. I can’t do this.”

snapshot_80028a30_2031c792

“I just…I can’t marry you, Babs. Not after what you did.”

snapshot_80028a30_a031c7a0

“Hun, please! We’re having a baby! Please take the ring!”

snapshot_80028a30_a031c7a8

“I can’t. I just can’t. I’m done.”

snapshot_80028a30_4031c7ea

“Catch ya later.”

“You left me at the altar, and you’re finger gunning me?”

snapshot_80028a30_2031c802

Everybody was talking about us. At least some people seemed really upset, and maybe even mad at Hun. That made me feel a little better.

snapshot_80028a30_a031c855

Hun went straight for the keg.

snapshot_80028a30_2031c86a

I was real hungry, so I went inside and chowed down on about eight plates of Jell-O.

snapshot_80028a30_8031c978

Then I went back outside and cheered myself up a little by meeting some new hot guys.

snapshot_80028a30_a031c9b5 The party got interrupted when I went into labor! Look at all those sweet boys standing around worrying about me.

snapshot_80028a30_4031ca01

 I didn’t see Hun, but I guess he had found a private room to go be upset in.

snapshot_80028a30_c031ca27

 I had a little baby girl! I decided to call her Lady Bird. The blonde hair kinda surprised me, though.

snapshot_80028a30_e031cb91

 I was so excited that I could finally have me some punch.

snapshot_80028a30_4031cbf2snapshot_80028a30_2031cbfe

 We got some baby stuff, ’cause babies need stuff and all.

snapshot_80028a30_6031cc30

 “Great. Your mother just left you on the grass. And what kind of crazy name is Lady Bird, anyway?”

snapshot_80028a30_4031cc5c

 The wedding party was a disaster.

snapshot_80028a30_e031cd06

“This is horrible! What am I going to do?”

snapshot_80028a30_8031cd99“Hey there, hot stuff.”

snapshot_80028a30_c031ce0e

Making out always makes me feel better.

snapshot_80028a30_a031ce90

“You sure are a cute little thing, Lady Bird. Too bad your daddy’s a jerk who left me at the altar.

snapshot_80028a30_e031ced9

“Babs? No, she’s not here right now. You should try calling back when she isn’t at work.”

snapshot_80028a30_0031cef9

“What are you doing telling people I’m not home?”

Even while I was yelling at Hun, I was wishing I could give him a big smacking kiss on the lips and make everything better.

snapshot_80028a30_4031cf08

“It was some guy! Just another one of your lovers! I suppose that’s all I am to you, too, just another notch on your belt!”

snapshot_80028a30_c031cf56

Oh, he made me so mad, I could spit!

snapshot_80028a30_c031cfb0

He really teed me off when he went and slept in the bed. It’s my bed! I’m sure as heck not sleeping on the couch in my own house!

snapshot_80028a30_8031d016

Well, Lady Bird’ll need a bed someday. And I figured I might as well get bunk beds.

snapshot_80028a30_c031d1e4

“Listen, this isn’t working. I think maybe you should move out, since you cheated on me.”

“Move out? This is my trailer, jerk! Remember how you had no place to go, so I let you stay here with me?”

snapshot_80028a30_8031d1f5

“Well, then, I think I should take Lady Bird with me. And Lady Bird is a terrible name. I’m going to rename her Princess Beyonce.”

“Ew! What do you want to call her? No way are you getting my baby! Get out of here, or I’m calling the cops!”

snapshot_80028a30_c031d254

“Bye.”

“I’ll call you. I still want time with my daughter.”

“Whatever.”

snapshot_80028a30_0031d281

I invited Kevin over, so Hun could see us kissing as his cab drove away.

What a jerk. “Princess Beyonce”? Really?

snapshot_8031f69e_4031fb32snapshot_8031f69e_8031fd88

I heard Hun moved into a nice little apartment on the edge of town.

snapshot_8031f69e_6031f710

I have no idea how he managed to afford the rent, since he only left with about $600.

snapshot_80028a30_a031ff1b

My carpool came, but of course I couldn’t go and leave Lady Bird all alone. Plus, I was on a date! But I did get to wondering what was going to happen when my vacation days ran out.

snapshot_80028a30_8031fffb

It’s a good thing Kevin stayed. We had a great time.

snapshot_80028a30_6031ffea

Hun stole my newspaper! He knew I needed that for compost!

snapshot_80028a30_c0320066

Lady Bird was a good baby. She fussed a little when she was hungry, and that was it.

snapshot_80028a30_203200fd

I figured I might as well eat all the tomatoes that didn’t get sold at the yard sale, so I stuck ’em in the fridge.

snapshot_80028a30_00320139

I also got a microwave, so I could cook food up right instead of taking forever with the stove. I figured, if the company was gonna give me money every day to not go to work, why not?

snapshot_80028a30_803201bb

Soon enough, it was time for Lady Bird’s birthday!

snapshot_80028a30_003201e1

She grew up to be a cute little thing.

snapshot_80028a30_4032028f

While she took her nap, I went out and harvested my veggies. I was kinda glad to be done with gardening for the year.

snapshot_80028a30_a032030d

Somebody told me about this fancy milk that would make kids smart. Well, Lady Bird wanted to learn walking and talking and stuff, and I didn’t want to spend forever teaching her, so I figured I’d try it out.

snapshot_80028a30_2032034b

It seemed like it worked, since she learned to walk pretty quick. That’s good that I don’t have to carry her no more.

snapshot_80028a30_c0320405

I think I had some bad baloney or something.

snapshot_80028a30_0032041e

I was glad Lady Bird was big enough to keep herself busy with her toy, ’cause I didn’t feel so hot.

snapshot_80028a30_00320497

I had me some ramen, and then put Lady Bird in her crib and went to take a nap myself.

snapshot_80028a30_003204c8

“MAAAAAAAAAMAAAAAAAAAA!”

snapshot_80028a30_6032050f

Oh, boy, another baby! Kevin’s the daddy, probably.

snapshot_80028a30_40320583

With Hun coming around and stealing the paper, I thought it’d be good to have a nice big dog around. But Rover didn’t stay long.

snapshot_80028a30_c03205dcI asked Kevin over to tell him about the baby, but I got distracted when he brought his cute friend Castor.

snapshot_80028a30_203206dcI don’t know why Kevin thought it would be a good idea to just barge into the bedroom.

snapshot_80028a30_c03206f6He was all mad at me and stuff, so I never got a chance to talk to him before he left.

I still love the guy, though.

snapshot_80028a30_e03207b4Well, things weren’t working out with my baby daddies, so I figured I’d better find some new guys to kiss. After I finished my Lean Cuisine.

snapshot_80028a30_4032088a‘Course, Lady Bird kept me pretty busy. She’s a cute kid, but I don’t know how she got so dirty.

snapshot_80028a30_a032092csnapshot_80028a30_603209b7

 I got her some more toys, since she’s gonna have a brother or sister to share them with.

snapshot_80028a30_c0320948

She was so happy with her toys that I finally got a good sleep in. Seems like the first time since she was born.

snapshot_80028a30_40320a71

I was having a nice date with mailman #2…

snapshot_80028a30_20320ad4

When I popped into the 3rd trimester.

I kinda think I want to be done with babies after this.

snapshot_80028a30_80320bd0

“Say ‘bottle’, Lady Bird.”

My baby girl was just as smart for talking as she was for walking.

snapshot_80028a30_c0320c87

I got another stray dog to come inside, but she ran off, too.

snapshot_80028a30_c0320d0d

It’s always nice when my dates give me pretty presents. I put the vase on the desk, where I can see it every time I play SSX 3.

snapshot_80028a30_40321118

I decided to put in a little pond, in case I get the urge to go fishing. I hope there are boots in it. Someday I’ll buy a juicer and make me some boot juice!

snapshot_80028a30_403212fc

Phil came over for some fun.

snapshot_80028a30_c0321338

And then Lady Bird walked in on us! She was bored or something, I guess. Don’t know why when she’s got all those toys.

snapshot_80028a30_e032138a

I went outside to enjoy the sunshine for a bit, and went into labor!

snapshot_80028a30_203213d4

It was a boy this time. I named him Andrew.

snapshot_80028a30_20321564

I finally got a stray dog interested enough to stick around! Maybe Webster just really likes kids.

snapshot_80028a30_40321598

I got him his very own doggie house.

snapshot_80028a30_40321602

That night was Lady Bird’s birthday! It was a good thing, since Andrew couldn’t stay in the bouncy chair forever.

snapshot_80028a30_2032161e

Lady Bird is still real cute, and I found some good clothes for her in the charity bin. That’s good – I got a little money saved up, and I’m still getting money from my job that I never go to, but I can’t really afford to spend a whole day’s pay on new clothes.

snapshot_80028a30_c0321689

Lady Bird had some fun playing with Webster before she went to bed. I want her to have a fun time, so I’m not gonna make her do stuff. If she wants to spend all her time playing with the dog, that’s fine by me.

snapshot_80028a30_c03216fd

The dog kept trying to destroy the trash can, so I went out to see if I could dig up a nice bone for him.

snapshot_80028a30_c0321774

Every once in a while I still think about what a jerk Hun was to leave me at the altar.

snapshot_80028a30_e0321a7d

“Mommy, you make the best cereal.”

“I’m not really that good at cooking, Birdie.”

snapshot_80028a30_20321acd

Lady Bird headed off for her first day of school. That girl runs everywhere.

snapshot_80028a30_60321bae

Ben came over for a date.

I shoulda asked him to marry me. I bet Ben wouldn’t have left me at the altar.

snapshot_80028a30_80321c9c

“Hey, kid, what’s up?”

“Playing a game. Who are you?”

“I’m Ben’s friend. He asked me to come over with him.”

“Oh. Just don’t slap my mom. That’s what usually happens when guys bring their friends over.”

snapshot_80028a30_60321e03

Drew kept me busy with his stinky diapers. I hate changing diapers.

snapshot_80028a30_20321e3a

I was so glad when it was time for his birthday. Birdie was excited, too.

snapshot_80028a30_e0321e62

Aw, ain’t he a little guy. Looks just like his daddy, bless his heart.

snapshot_80028a30_60321f09

That special milk seemed to work real good for Lady Bird, so I gave Drew some too.

snapshot_80028a30_a0321fba

Yep, Webster definitely likes the kiddies.

snapshot_80028a30_8032202f

“Mommy, what’s the capital of Simlandia?”

“Oh, honey, I don’t know. Don’t you worry about all that school stuff. You don’t have to be fancy or nothing, just pass on through.”

Anyway, I think that’s about it this time.

Author’s Notes:

The rules say a new spouse can be moved in if the spouse dies, but they say nothing about a prospective spouse moving out. I figured Hun moving out would be more in the spirit of the challenge than killing him off would be, so I’m just going to attempt to follow the rules by not moving in a replacement. I am playing him, for the moment – he lives in an apartment and is best friends with Lady Bird, because I didn’t see how that could hurt anything. I toyed with the idea of playing all Babs’ baby daddies, but decided against it. I’m planning to play moved out spares once I get to that point, and don’t want to bog myself down with a bunch of baby daddies first. I do have a special place in my heart for Hun, though. He lost a nice gig as a townie barista for Babs, and then she cheated on him and stole all his money (he came in with $10,000, and left with only $600). I want to make him happy, so I’ll play him at least until he gets his LTW.

Welcome to a brand new Trailer Park Challenge! See the rules here.

I just can’t help myself. This challenge has gotten into my head, and I felt like I just had to play it. It’s just…so…trashy.

Without further ado, I’ll turn things over to your narrator for the proceedings.

snapshot_80028a30_60028a8b

Huh? Oh. Hi, there! I’m Barbara White, Babs for short. I just moved out on my own, and I am so excited! Ready to go out and find me some lovin’. In fact, if I could find 20 cute guys to love on, that would be just peachy.

snapshot_80028a30_40028d4csnapshot_80028a30_60028d56

And here’s my place! It’s real nice. Real wood floors and everything. Even got an extra bedroom for when I have kiddies. Not much furniture, but that’s okay, I have what I need. I call it The White House, ’cause my last name’s White, get it?

snapshot_80028a30_c0028dff

Not a lot to do around my place, so I figured I’d head out. I’d go to Wal-mart, but there’s no Wal-mart in this town, so I came down here to the Round Barn General Store instead. Definitely my kind of place!

snapshot_80028a30_e0028f4a

I met a cute guy right off the bat! Ben’s really sweet, and he has great fashion sense!

snapshot_80028a30_6002e0d0

Wow, some of these people are super serious about their darts!

snapshot_80028a30_a002e472

Anyway, Ben and I got along great.

snapshot_80028a30_2002e7e3

I also met another cute guy named Kevin, but he wanted to get way too serious, too fast. So I decided to go on home.

snapshot_80028a30_6002e8cc

I had a few extra dollars in my pocket, so I decided I’d plant a garden. I love green growing things. If I ever have kids, they’re gonna spend a lot of time outside playing.

snapshot_80028a30_8002e91a

Ben brung me some roses! Wasn’t that sweet? He gave me a little gift card, too, which is good since I spent all my money on the garden.

snapshot_80028a30_c002e9b2snapshot_80028a30_6002eb08

I spent the whole day meeting guys. It was a great day.

snapshot_80028a30_0002eb77

Not only is Jace another cute guy, but he offered to fix me up with one of his friends!

snapshot_80028a30_6002eb95

I really liked Ashley. Only thing is, he’s a college guy. I don’t know, something about too much book learnin’ makes me twitchy. Anyway, we had a nice date.

snapshot_80028a30_c002ec63

I thought I saw something shiny in the ground, but I dug and dug, all night long, and all I found were rocks and bones.

snapshot_80028a30_2002ecae

In the morning, I decided maybe I’d better get me a job. I’d rather not work – momma always said work was for suckers – but a girl’s got to eat. So I got a job as a dishwasher. I get free food every shift!

snapshot_80028a30_0002edc2

Ashley brought me some more of those roses with the gift cards, so I got a desk for the free computer that guy gave me when I moved in. Things are getting fancy now! I’m glad people around here are so nice.

snapshot_80028a30_4002efcc

Peter Ottomas came over for a good time. He’s married, but he says his wife don’t care. I’m cool with that.

snapshot_80028a30_2002f03b

I got a promotion after my very first day at the job! They gave me a bonus, too, so I came home with five hundred simoleons! I’m rich!

snapshot_80028a30_e002f0e1

I’ve got lights now, and carpet in the bedroom!

snapshot_80028a30_8002f2dc

I had the next day off, so I invited the mailman, Pao, over for a date.

snapshot_80028a30_400bbf67

I was bored before bed, so I headed on down to the park downtown. I figured I’d see if I could catch a nice fish to fry up for dinner.

snapshot_80028a30_600bc056

I caught a boot! Maybe someday I can buy a juicer, and then I can make boot juice just like Momma used to make.

snapshot_80028a30_000bc0fa

Somebody left some hot dogs on the grill! I mean, they were a little crispy, but who cares? Free food!

snapshot_80028a30_400bc1df

I went on a nice outing with a cute blond guy, but then this weird old lady showed up with her knitting, so I figured I’d better get on home.

snapshot_80028a30_200bc6d3

I was in a real good mood when I got home, and not tired at all. I didn’t have much to do at home, so I figured I’d look for that shiny thing I saw. And I found it! A big old treasure chest!

snapshot_80028a30_200bc71d

Then Pau came over and left me a gift – a karaoke set of my very own! I never knew I wanted one.

snapshot_80028a30_200bc825

In the morning, I invited over Hun. I met him the night before at the park, but he couldn’t talk much ’cause he was at work. He’s got a really good job, with a fancy title and everything – he’s a barista!

snapshot_80028a30_200bc8d2

Hun and I hung out and had a great day.

snapshot_80028a30_000bca14

Another hard day of work. Man, I’m just so tired when I get home.

snapshot_80028a30_e00bcc00

All I want to do after work is have a nice relaxing evening in with a friend.

snapshot_80028a30_e00bcc9e

Well, I ain’t getting any younger, you know. Oh, wait, I am!

snapshot_80028a30_e00bcce9

One of my sweeties sent me a love letter!

snapshot_80028a30_600bcd5a

I make a lot of money at my job. Like, a hundred and fifty simoleons every time I go in. And my dates keep leaving me those roses with gift cards. So I was able to get my place decked out with fancy carpet, and even some linoleum in the kitchen and bathroom. Plus, I hung up my boots and some maps I found while I was digging, to really brighten the place up.

snapshot_80028a30_200bd028

“I want to be a billionaire…”

snapshot_80028a30_c00bd048

“Wow, your friend is a terrible singer.”

“I know. Want to woohoo?”

“Isn’t that why we’re here in our underwear?”

snapshot_80028a30_000bd0aa

Something weird happened before the guys left. Joshua flirted with me, and Ashley got this weird look on his face, and said, “We’re not best friends anymore.” I mean, he didn’t get mad or slap him or nothing, he was real calm about it.

I was confused. I thought the whole reason Ashley wanted to bring Joshua along was to have a 3-way, but I guess not.

snapshot_80028a30_600bd0f7

Anyway, after they left, some of my friends brought by some awesome gifts! I put the pinball machine in inventory, so I don’t spend all my money on it.

snapshot_80028a30_a00bd1c8

I figured I’d try out the telescope, though. What can I say? I was bored.

snapshot_80028a30_a00bd1f2

I got tired of looking at the sky, and started to look at the neighbors instead. Then this guy came over and yelled at me! How’d he even know I was watching his house? Jerk.

snapshot_80028a30_c0127d7c

I wasn’t ready for bed yet, so I headed back to the general store for some window shopping.

snapshot_80028a30_60127e2d

Free food rocks. I love me some wieners.

snapshot_80028a30_20127fd1

Sheldon, the other mailman, came over for a nice date.

snapshot_80028a30_601280cc

After Sheldon left, Hun came over. He had some bad news: he got fired from his job and evicted from his place. I’ve got lots of room, so I figured I’d ask him to move in with me. Live in woohoo buddy!

Also, you can see in the back there that my first tomato crop came in.

snapshot_80028a30_401284fd

Turns out Hun has some savings – $10,000 in the bank! We talked about maybe buying a truck or something, but we decided to go for something even more exciting instead – a double wide! We got ourselves a trailer with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and one a them fancy “mud rooms”! And there was even enough left for a couch and a tv. We’re rich!

snapshot_80028a30_401285af

I had to go to work right after, but Hun stayed home and met the neighbors. He’s real friendly, and wants to have a bunch of best friends.

snapshot_80028a30_2012869f

I got a promotion to shift manager. The bonus was nice, but it makes me a little nervous to have all that responsibility.

snapshot_80028a30_401288cd

It was awesome to have somebody already there to have a date with when I got home.

snapshot_80028a30_80128932

To finish up our date, we broke in the new couch.

snapshot_80028a30_00128985

Hun likes sports a lot, so he hung out watching the game while I headed downtown.

snapshot_80028a30_20128c08

This town is full of hot guys to date!

snapshot_80028a30_c0128dd7

Hun got a new ‘do, since he didn’t have to have a fancy buzz cut for his job no more. And he grew a sweet mustache.

snapshot_80028a30_40210056

“Woah, babe, you’re hot stuff. Want to woohoo again?”

“I’m really hungry, Hun. Maybe after I have my baloney sandwich.”

snapshot_80028a30_e02100af

Then I barfed up my baloney sandwich. Made me wonder if I was knocked up.

snapshot_80028a30_c0210279

I had to go to work. Hun got lonely, so he had some of the neighbors over for a little get together.

snapshot_80028a30_40210400

I got a promotion! I’m a hostess. It’s pretty hard work, though. I’m ok with it, I guess, but I definitely don’t want to be a waitress. That’s way too hard.

snapshot_80028a30_c0210560

Hun really got into it at the karaoke machine.

snapshot_80028a30_a02105d1

I kinda got into it with Ethan. Yeah, I know, he’s old, but he’s hot for an old guy.

snapshot_80028a30_a0210703

“Hey, babe, want to make out?”

“I can’t. I think I got the flu at work.”

snapshot_80028a30_20210803

“Hey babe, want to woohoo?”

“I’m sick, and apparently pregnant, and in horrible pajamas. Maybe later.”

snapshot_80028a30_20210871

I was a little nervous about the baby and all, but falling in love with the mailman made me feel better.

snapshot_80028a30_402109f5

“Hun, will you make an honest woman out of me?”

snapshot_80028a30_80210a07

“Sure, babe! Hey, nice bling!”

snapshot_80028a30_80210d16

We went to bed early that night, since we had a big day coming up. We moved into the biggest room at the back of the trailer, since I figured it’d be good to have the baby next to the kitchen.

snapshot_80028a30_c0210f02

The next day, it was yard sale time! My momma always said you should have a yard sale every summer. So we put out all the stuff I dug up, and the tomatoes, and that pinball machine somebody left on the porch, and the old counters we replaced when I got my last promotion.

snapshot_80028a30_c0210f8f

Peter Ottomas showed up right away, and flirted with me. Turns out Hun didn’t like that much.

snapshot_80028a30_00210fbf

He was kinda broke up about it.

snapshot_80028a30_80210fd1

“Come on, dude! Surely you knew that Babs gets around with every guy in town! Now would you ring me up already?”

snapshot_80028a30_4021106b

Yep, definitely preggers. Too bad my baby daddy is mad at me. And we’re supposed to get married tomorrow.

snapshot_80028a30_c02111fa

“I’m so sorry, sweetie. I promise not to flirt with any more guys in front of you.”

“That’s not the same thing as promising not to flirt with any more guys.”

snapshot_80028a30_a0211290

The yard sale did good, I guess. We sold most of the stuff. I put the tomatoes in the fridge, and the rest of the stuff back in my inventory for next year.

snapshot_80028a30_c021149d

I got a shower head and curtain for the tub, but that’s about it. I figured it’d be better to save the money for the baby.

snapshot_80028a30_8021134d

“I’m so sorry, Hun! I don’t know what to do! We gotta get married tomorrow, before this baby comes.”

“Is the baby even mine?”

“Of course it is!”

snapshot_80028a30_802114c3

Hun wouldn’t even sleep in the bed with me.

We’re supposed to have a wedding tomorrow. I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

Author’s Notes:

I’m playing this for fun, when I need a break from my fabulously wealthy and ridiculously functional BaCC families. I can’t promise regular updates of any sort. I’m not really planning to have a plot, other than what the game throws me, but I’m not going to turn it down, either.

I’ve tried not to break any rules, so if you see anything, let me know. The only thing I wasn’t sure on was the money Hun brought in – the rules say for 8-10k to buy a truck and a junk car, and for 10-12k to build a doublewide, and Hun brought exactly 10k. I figured the doublewide would be more useful to them, so that’s what I went with.

See you next time here at The White House!
