This was the Dalton house weeks ago.
At times I thought Trinity was gonna blow another gasket! She'd just stand there staring into the mess for minutes at a time. The last thing she needed after working at the hospital was to come home to disorganization. It was grating on everybody's nerves, including mine.
Trinity reminded him of that one evening.
Lars here and he knows good people. Shoot, he's the one that built this house, he's perfect for the job." Trinity said almost begging.
"I did ask him, but it was during the football game on New Years. I don't think he wanted to talk about work, with Minena in town and all. He just kinda shushed me and shrugged it off. Not like him at all. He's always trying to make a few more bucks. After his lightning accident...I just didn't want to bring it up again. " Keith shrugged. But Trinity gave him that crazy look of hers.
Keith got on the phone and called Lars to see if he'd be willing to help with the remodeling for an affordable fee. He wasn't expecting the guy to come over right then and there, but he did. Lars offered to start building the fireplace and finish taking up the floors and stripping the rest of the wallpaper, right away. Keith made it easy because he already had all the materials there.
Trinity fried some catfish because Lars had worked up a hearty appetite. He'd complained a few times that he hadn't eaten anything before rushing over. She and Keith hadn't eaten either, after feeding the kids and putting them to bed.
"I had a ball working on it, you're very welcome." Lars was exhausted though, truthfully. This was his first remodel job since leaving the hospital, but he felt he owed Dr. Dalton for saving his life.
The next day all remodeling plans halted to a dead stop. Keith got a call from Jolie Dawson in Apple Valley requesting that he design her living room and dining room in a cozy cottage chic style. She sent him pictures of her home and they passed fabrics back and forth, finally coming up with a design that Jolie loved. As they worked together on this project long distance, the thought came to mind that Jolie was really good at expressing ideas. She's full of creativity and hunts fabric swatches as often as she hunts new cookbook recipes. He was ecstatic that she accepted the position of Design Consultant for SimCity Furniture Online. Not only that, but she also offered to design his livingroom! Leaving him more time to deal with the constant rise of customers at the store.
He and Jolie felt they made a great team. It wasn't long before Keith had put the finishing touches on all the custom pieces. Jolie flew into Simmington Hills to meet him at SimCity Furniture Store and to fill out her employment records. She wanted to be at the Dalton home to help install the furniture and see Trinity's face, firsthand, at the reveal!
"So where is everything? I thought you were going to show me what you did?" Jolie asked.
"It's not here, it's in boxes at the house. Everything is completely ready for install this afternoon. I'll be sending Trinity and the kids away, so she won't see it until we're all finished." Keith said excitedly.
"Ohhh, you're not going to believe how I used them. You just wait and see." Keith smiled.
The phone rang, so Keith had to get back to work. Jolie went back to the hotel to wait on his call. She would meet him at home to get to work.
"Oh hi, Keith, I'm so glad you picked up. I heard you were doing some remodeling?"
"I've actually got it covered, Minena, but I certainly appreciate you calling. I thought you were changing career fields, though?" Keith asked.
They chatted for awhile, then Keith hurried to open the store and start the day. He couldn't wait to get home to finally finish what he'd started. He left one of the sales girls in charge to run the store in his absence.
Trinity and the kids left to go to the movies at the library while Keith and Jolie worked.
"Ta-daaaah!" Keith shouted.
"Mmm, you get this." Trinity smooches her guy and whispers that there's more where that came from.
The kids played outside in the light snowfall, not particularly caring about all the fuss inside. They loved making forts out of those boxes. Now they knew they had to be on their best behavior and not mess up Mommy's new 'precious'. They weren't in a hurry to come in.
"Ok, I've got 'er all set up, take a seat and I'll just snap your pic real quick." Keith said, directing her to the hunter green Embassy Tile chair he made. He couldn't see how those tiles would be of any use, but the idea came to him at the last minute and Jolie adored it. He now calls it his 'boss chair'.
Trinity made her slow and tantalizing walk up the staircase...shedding her clothes as she went.
"Shhh, did you hear that?" Terris goes to the foot of the stairs.
The twins burst into fits of "gew-gew" faces and noises; falling out in the floor.
"You guys BETTER NOT BE TRACKING SNOW INTO MY NEW LIVINGROOM!"
The kids run into the foyer to take off their wet shoes and coats and huddle there for few minutes before entering the house again.
Whew! I finally finished this rotation. Sorry for the wait, if I've still got any readers out there. :P I've been really really busy.
This couple Woohoo's twice a day, I swear! I can't keep them out of the bedroom. (At least they have the decency to go to the bedroom, right?)LOL! Trinity's a cougar, that's all I'm saying. She loves her some Keith. She really acted like getting this new room made her horny! I could barely get Jolie outta there, she was calling Keith to the bed. I had to have her come back downstairs and say goodbye to Jolie. That's the least she could do, right? Be courteous, Trinity, dag. Then Keith stares at her butt walking up the steps...*bleeping horny Sims*
