Round 3: The Uptons

Round 3: The Uptons

Howdy. Here we are in round three at the Upton home. It is another one of those houses (like the
Schurzenjagers) where none of the original CAS characters longer reside. It started out with Miles and his studly Knowledge Sim grandpa Marshall. Marshall married fellow Fortune Sim Marisa Bendett, and last round had a daughter named Ocean, who grew up to child in the same round. At the end of round two, Marisa and Marshall had just had a son Jupiter. Miles had left for University where he shacked up with his girlfriend, Aquamarine Rosada. So let us proceed with round three.

I really did think Marshall had a coupla days left for his hula party. Since I had not pursued his LTW or anything, (it was an impossible career want) I had to have worries about him dying in platinum. Well, luckily he was in plat. He died on Monday night. He had to put infant Jupiter on the floor during a bottle feeding to accept Grim's invitation to the great hula party in the sky. I was astounded. It looked like he had plenty of space left on his life bar. Oh well. Buh-bye Marshall!

Cool inheritance picture. Marshall's death added $35,000 to the family funds. I didn't go nutz changing things though. They had most of the stuff they needed to live, after all. I did put down some new floor coverings and did some wallpapering. Having the extra cash would just make it easier to buy the expensive stuff Marisa would need for a plat boost to energize to keep skilling, working, and promoting. Miles got $9,600 whilst away at Uni. That will be nice to have there when I get back to the dorm he shares with Aqua.

Well well. Looks like Marisa had to step in and take over birthday duties from Marshall. Isn't Jupiter a handsome fellow? The one thing I have to say from reading all the blogs on Fellowship I, is that Marshall Upton makes good looking kids.

Here is Jupter pitching in to help make family friends so his mom can get promoted in her job. Errr....look who it is. Rich Yessam. Can't he make adult friends? First it was
Lilly Potts, now it is another child, Jupiter Upton. Oh well. No matter. Rich is tied up takin' care of Dave the Alien now, and the newest addition to his family, Ralph.

Uh-oh. It looks like Marisa is getting overwhelmed with all the responsibilities that come along with being a single parent. Now she is starting to realize how much she leaned on Marshall to run the household.

Being that Marisa has all that nice inheritance money now, and is starting to pull in a fine payceck from the Athletic Career, she gets on the phone to order maid and gardener service. Way to go, goldigger...errr...I mean Marisa!

Awww, Marshall died on Monday, and here on Wednesday he is haunting already. He is sad. He misses his family. He didn't do any scaring since I did not get rid of his bed. He just floated around looking at stuff. Poor, poor Marshall.

Well, looky here who came home on the bus with Ocean! That Busto kid shows up everywhere. I am eyeballing these two for a possible match. It didn't take long at all for their daily number to reach 100. There is a chemistry there!

Here is Jupiter's grow up picture. As you can see, Ocean has grown up too. Gad! I didn't get her birthday portrait from toddler to child either. Dern. She looks more like Marisa. Jupiter looks more like Marshall. Anyhow, Ocean is Popularity Sim with an LTW to be a Celebrity Chef. She is 1 neat, 8 outgoing, 10 active, 3 playful, and 3 nice, and is a Gemini.

Awww! Isn't Jupiter a cutie! I haven't paired him up yet. It is hard to keep track of everyone in this hood. I will take a look at the two houses that have the 'marry off 6 kids' want and see if there is a girly there for him. That is where we leave the Uptons for this round. Marisa promoted to....ummmm.....Coach. Next round she will hit Hall of Famer, and a perm plat.

POINTS THIS ROUND: Marshall passes, 1 plat headstone.

Rich, hmm, that is so wrong making only kid friends...makes you wonder. I love Marisa's head thingy, looks cool. :) Yeah Bassel Busto!

Love to see some of the faces they look so different.

Sometimes I don't get why the age-meter does that. I'm glad you had Marshall plat though. Awww, poor, poor Marshall, he misses his family. Jupiter is such a cutie!!!

Yes, Marshall does make good looking kids. His daughter with Corky in my game is a beauty, and his sons with the Diva are hotties. Jupiter is a cutie...he's going to be a heart breaker, just like his father I'm sure! Ocean is pretty too, but she has that flat nose of Marisa's. *LOL* Hook her up with Bassel. They'd have some good looking kids. Hehe.
