Hello, and welcome back to our post SimNaNo updates. We had a successful SimNaNo this year and I’m excited to get to finishing up this challenge. This is likely going to be a little shorter than they have been, back to my usual length, but I’m curious if you readers prefer the shorter or longer posts. Leave a comment and let me know!

So I have partially crossed out finding a spouse in Selvadorada because we did find her, she’s just not a spouse yet. Not much else has happened yet, but we are getting close. Now onto the update.
We start with Rye doing a lot of work on the robots, and he even made and activated a CleanBot to try out. So far it’s been pretty interesting to have around and does seem to help with the cleaning a good bit.
Still in their outfits from the most recent party these three watch some TV. Oceana was starting to run out of time and we haven’t yet been able to see someone die, so she made a wish at the wishing well and managed to get her age reset to the start of her elder years again.
Reed headed off to his new acting gig and while chatting with a costar he finished up his charisma and completed his aspiration That is great news. He is going to finish up 2 skills and then will probably be allowed to leave to find his own way.
In the meantime, Reed picked up the Master Actor aspiration and got busy doing his job. This was a comedy show and he had to flirt and kiss his costar, which went great for him.
Lily came home with her final promotion. This is great news for Olive, but since this came up while we were with Reed at work we do not have the notice yet, so I hope it counts. I do want to get Lily through her aspiration since she’s on the last level, but then she will have completed her requirements too.
When we get home we see that Olive, in fact, has completed the Successful Lineage aspiration finally. She moves back to the Big Happy Family aspiration. She is still a few promotions away from getting her needed promotions for Master Chef, so hopefully we will reach this other one first.
Rye is also getting successful in his job and came home with his own promotion. I’m hoping he will get through the rest of his promotions quickly, but he is needing to focus on his aspiration right now.
Lily wanted to throw a fun dance party out at the ruins, but sadly, when every one arrived there was a massive thunderstorm going on. So everyone was fairly uncomfortable being out in the rain and lightning.
We do, however, manage to enjoy the bonfire for a short period of time and the crowd gathers and chats, Oceana plays some music, Reed performs a scene with another girl at the party for tips and a generally good time is had despite all the rain.
Once the party is over, Lily is getting closer and closer to being done with her aspiration. She also continues to work on her knitting. Olive tries to keep up with her kids and spends some time chatting with her.
All of that knitting, however, has paid off when Lily maxes out her knitting skill. That is one more skill down and we only have a handful more to go. I’m so happy to be as far as I am through this crazy goal.
While Oceana is up here making the wish I mentioned earlier, Olive manages to finally maximize her baking skill. All Olive needs now is to finish up some aspirations, and her work as one of the heiresses is done. She has done so well.
It was time for another data for Rye as he needed one more to finish up that first milestone. So he takes Analisa out for a lunch at the small restaurant on the next island over. They talked about many things, including the food, and had a great date.
The date ended good and they had a wonderful time together. I’m excited for having these guys be our final couple and am excited to get them married and start on kids. We are very close to be ready for that.
We attempted to have a weenie roast and quickly found out the “seats” I used were too big to place the way I had them and we had a couple of fires. We removed the benches eventually so everyone could roast marshmallows and enjoy the evening sitting on the beach.
We will ends this update with the exciting news that Petunia is starting a family. She is not married yet, as far as I know, but she is pregnant and often times they will get married within the next couple of days. I’m hoping she will and that it will count for Olive’s aspiration.
This update is a little shorter than I initially planned, but after the long posts of SimNaNo, I’m hoping you will enjoy something a little shorter, and the next post should see Analisa moving in and her and Rye getting married and preparing to start a family of their own.
