I’m Surrounded By Idiots Chapter 5

It wasn’t long before Serena started to get morning sickness. She knew she must be pregnant.


Karma grew into an adult with the aspiration of “Dense Dunce”. She immediately broke down.


I just had to post this picture to show how weird she looked. Quite scary.


She changed her hairstyle. A bang falling a bit over her eyes would probably distract the extremely large eyes.


She’s constantly talking to the soccer ball. She’s loosing her mind because her aspiration is so low.


Serena is about 4 months pregnant and starting to show. She painted a picture for the baby’s room.


Oliver is doing much to help around the house. He’s mostly reading the paper or sleeping. Serena doesn’t even think he has a job.


Serena is getting closer to her due date.


Oliver was cooking and managed to cause a fire. Serena doesn’t seem bothered by this.


Karma decides to get a job in the education career. [I am allowed one free command per Sim throughout their lifetime, for Karma I used it to get her a job.]


Baby girl Treena is born. She has her father’s grey eyes and black brows. Oliver is looking very pale after playing outside in the snow for too long.


Charles is so happy to be a grandfather. He adores Treena. He only wishes his wife could have seen her.


Oliver obviously has a job in the police department. [When I changed his clothes, I noticed that he’s a Romance aspiration. I am allowed to change clothes, but I have to close the things in order not to see the wants and needs, but I could see the aspiration thing.]


Serena hires Nanny Heidi since she was her nanny when she grew up. Heidi is very old now, but she is still capable of looking after kids.


[Ok, I had paused the game in order to go make dinner, but when I came back I realized the game hadn’t been paused!!! I was away from the computer for like 2 hours, if not more! 3 days went by! Serena had just found out that she was pregnant again, and when I came back to the computer, I found her sleeping on the floor, her needs were extremely low, close to dying even!! And she was on her third day of her pregnancy. When I looked at her memories, she had witnessed a fire, and had been scared by her mother’s ghost. It’s a miracle that she is alive and that nobody died.]


[Oh, and when I checked on Treena, I realized that she was now a toddler.]


After taking care of a few things to get back in order, Serena taught Treena to walk.


She went to give Oliver a backrub, but he refused. He was too much of in a bad mood.


Charles was looking through the telescope when he started having chest pain.


Charles died at 79 years of age. Serena knew he couldn’t live forever, but she was devastated to loose him.


Charles received a gold tombstone. I think it’s because he reached his LTW. It’s the first time I ever see one.


That same night that her father passed away, baby girl Jabelle was born.


Oliver was scared by Sarah’s ghost. She passed away of old age, one would think she wouldn't go around spooking people.


Oliver broke down. His aspiration is always so low. He probably didn’t want a baby, and then being scared by Sarah probably made it worse.


Karma helps with the kids. She’s a good aunt and loves those kids. But she really wants plastic surgery.


Finally she has it done. She got the plastic surgeon to give her a nose and lips. He told her he couldn't fix the size of her eyes because she would go blind.


Although she’s far from being beautiful, she feels beautiful now that she looks more “human”.


Oliver was so tired and confused that he went to bed even though Karma was sleeping there. He immediately got up, changed bed, got up again and would go to this bed again, and so on, for quite a few times.


Whenever he gets up he says he’s starving. Serena has put out some food for him, but he doesn’t go.


Karma managed to set the food on fire.


Finally, Oliver takes a shower and eats.



  1. Thank you so much. I thought I was going to have to beg for you to consider letting Karma get plastic surgery. She looks much better. However, I don't understand why her mother is haunting the house. Aren't ghost supposed to haunt, when they didn't like the way they died? I wouldn't know, because I don't any ghost in my neighborhood...not that I'm aware of anyway.

    It's a surprise nobody had died by the time you got back to the game, it reminds me of a challenge I read once.

    You start out with a sim, give him everything he needs to survive and have fun, and go off and do your own thing, and check back in a few hours...not much of a challenge, but it's entertaing.

  2. Charles hasn't spooked anyone yet, but she has a few times already. Maybe because her aspiration was low, I have no idea.
    I have read of such a challenge too. I think a few minutes later than I was and Serena would have died. Her needs were extremely low.

  3. Sims will haunt even if they achieved their lifetime want if you don't delete their gravestones. Suggestion: move gravestones far away from house so that the ghosts aren't as inclined to go all that distance just to scare a few sims.
