Blueberry Island – Winter 3 – Do

Hi all and welcome back!

Last time we visited the Do family, it was still just Lilly and Emily. Lilly took care of baby, then toddler, than child Emily alone, but let her father Eric Robinson visit to see and bond with her. Lilly and Eric grew closer again as well and at the end of the season he moved in with Lilly and Emily. Emily was over the moon to have her parents living together.

Things had changed quite a bit in the Do household. Eric had moved in at the end of last season, and not only did that mean that Emily now had her father around, it also meant that money struggles were no longer a thing. Lilly had to get used to that still, actually. Eric had carefully suggested to give the house an upgrade in terms of furniture and decoration, and Lilly had been pleased at the thought that this was finally possible. It still felt a little strange, though.

If she wanted, she could even quit her job, but that wasn’t going to happen. She liked being a teacher way too much.

Emily brought her cousin Isaac home from school. They had a fun time together and became friends.

Eric had to admit he was a little bored. He loved being with Emily and with Lilly, too, but there was so little to do. His businesses were running themselves, his job was alright… But he was feeling antsy. He wondered… Maybe family life wasn’t his thing after all? He hoped he was wrong.

Eric and Emily became best friends.

The next day was a Snow Day, so Eric took the day off to play outside with Emily.

In the afternoon, they made their way over to Amin’s Ice Skating Rink.

They had a lot of fun ice skating together and Eric was very grateful for his daughter and his life. He’d find something new to do to get over his boredom. He wasn’t going to give up the life he had now – it was amazing.

Lilly came home with a promotion to University Guest Lecturer.

To treat herself, she finally went to by herself a new outfit at Bigfoot Fashion.

Then they all spent a nice quiet evening at home.

Eric took a bath and had a good think about his life. He’d had a lot of fun as a Romance Sim, but now he felt like it didn’t fit him and his new life anymore. He’d taken everything from it that he could, but it was time for something new. A new challenge.

So he got himself a new aspiration with the ReYuNu Senso Orb. Unfortunately, it didn’t fix the problem I’d hoped it would. His LTW has been stuck on 20 Simultaneous Best Friends, even though he already achieved that… The Orb didn’t help, unfortunately. I rerolled with the Aspiration Adjuster (part of the InSIMenator), and now he wants to be a Celebrity Chef. Finally something new to work on!

Eric and Lilly were both very happy and relieved. “You didn’t need to change yourself for me, of course, but I saw you were restless. I’m just happy you get to be truly happy again.”

Eric couldn’t find a job in Culinary right away, so he decided to write a memoir about his life and success in business.

On Saturday, Eric found a job as a waiter. It was a bit of a transition from being a Business Tycoon to being a waiter, but he was looking forward to it and ready for the adventure.

He came home with a promotion to Prep Cook right away!

And that’s it for this season for the Do family – not a lot happened. I didn’t really know what to do with Eric, which is why I let him reroll, which was a good idea. He now has a goal again! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this update – Happy Simming!
