Hope in Dumpsters: Snowmen Winter

People Watching | Rules | 3 to Go

We are almost through this challenge, I am on day 15 of 21. We send Bobbie out to her favorite dumpster to get started for the day and see there is quite a crowd at the dump today. Let’s go take a look.

This couple, the girl in the blue shirt and the buy in the blue shorts are flirting up a storm, blowing kisses to each other, giving flowers, etc.

They move outside and continue doing the exact same thing. I’m not sure why you would want your “date” to be at the dump, but hey, to each their own.

Not a whole lot interesting happens this day, and as the day turns to night we have Bobbie wrap up her diving and lay out the finds for day 15 on the lawn.

A couple more wall hangings again…those are another very popular item to throw away, another grill, a new dishwasher, a couple more chairs, a flamingo to match our other one and then the assortment of bugs.

Bobbie starts getting ready for bed and gets upset because the toilet is clogged. Sadly, she is in too bad of a mood to fix it, needing a shower, sleep, and someone to talk to.

During the night, while I watched Bobbie dream, the snow started coming down, and by morning we had a bit of a winter wonderland outside. Bobbie takes some time in the morning to get ready to head out and then she runs to the dump.

There are quite a few people at the dump this morning and so we let Bobbie do a little socializing with the woman who is inside the small building on the lot.

After getting some social time in it’s time for Bobbie to start her diving for the day. While Bobbie dies, as you know what it looks like for her legs to be sticking out of a dumpster, we watch the people who all came to the dump to….build snowmen apparently.

Then we spy some “drama” happening there in the back of that first picture above and head over to check it out.

It’s the same woman who called a guy a floppy lama and seemed to have a broken heart during the last update. I’m not sure this is the same guy as the hair is different, but maybe this is his “cold” outfit. Either way, she is still thinking about a broken heart and doesn’t seem to like this guy much.

I notice the chair she is upset about sitting a short distance from her in the junk yard. Perhaps this guy threw out her chair and she is upset at him for not discussing it with her first. Now it’s “junk”. You can see Bobbie’s legs just in the background of this picture.

Then I notice there is a snow cloud coming from the area by the building and head over to check it out. It is a very “exciting” day at the dump today.

Well as it turns out there was no fight going on, but rather this man destroying a snowman. I’m not sure if it was his snowman, or if he decided this particular snowman had to go for some reason, but it is soon destroyed.

After this very exciting day at the dump, Bobbie finishes up her diving for the day and we lay out her finds on the lawn, and go into build mode because there is too much snow to see all of is clearly.

WE FOUND A BED!!! This is very exciting. We go ahead and keep the bed Bobbie has been using as it is technically better than this bed, but we place this bed in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Then we move the lamps and table inside as well. The gems and bugs are picked up, and the bugs are dropped off to be studied and Bobbie heads to cut her gems.

Bobbie watches the machine do it’s work, looked over by the very creepy picture that sits on the wall behind her. We have reached the point where we have a pear cut and thus that’s what we make.

While the final gems were being cut this townie came over and just stood watching Bobbie cut her gems. After the gems were finished he took her over to the side and started dancing with her. Since Bobbie is usually devoid of much social interactions I let her have some fun.

While she slept that night, sadly, a black and white being visited, and was very unwelcome.

I tried to get Bobbie up in enough time to call the cops, but sadly the burglar got away with the super nice stereo that Bobbie had pulled out of the dumpster a while ago. We are very sad about burglary but luckily Bobbie has a few more days left and we have dug up plenty of stereos.

I will remember your face burglar. With that unfortunate turn of events, and the wrap up of day 16 I think it’s a good time to call this update. There are only 5 more days left in this challenge, and then we will begin a DITFT. I have decided that I will give Bobbie 7 days as a young adult after this challenge is done to get started on her DITFT career.

So she will have the 21 days from this challenge, and another 7, giving her a total of 28 days as a young adult and then she will be allowed to grow up. I am not going to start her over, and will leave her in this house, with whatever limited money she will have left at the end of the challenge.

Items bought since beginning: Toilet, Refrigerator, Bed, Counter (1), Shower (which she has had and I forgot I had bought)

I have been playing sims since TS1 and even played a little bit of the PS2 version and the mobile versions over time. Once I discovered challenges for TS2 I never looked back. I love the sims, the families I've been able to make, and play through the years and connecting with people about them. I work from home doing Salesforce Data Validation for my company, have 2 cats I adore and have a million hobbies I feel like I will never have time to completely explore.

  1. The dump was a happening place for lovebirds in my game too. So bizarre.
    Oh no, a burglar! Poor Bobbie.. though I mean really, I wonder if the thief knew she was making off with a stereo covered in dumpster drippings. LOL
