Sink In, 2013

Havar, fall, 2013
Bradford is 49, Suzanna is 48, Laci is 15, Lilly is 9, Lora is 8 and Lesia is 7




Another school year had started and Suzanna couldn't believe that Laci was seriously considering universities. It was an exciting, yet stressful time. Pierce University was her top choice as she wanted to attend school with her cousin, Veronika, but she was looking at aternatives as she knew that her grades were not as impressive as Veronika's grades. There was still time to increase grades, but Suzanna worried about Laci's graduate studies. How would they be able to afford veterinary school?




Suzanna knew just how expensive medical school could be and Laci's dreams were on par with those costs, however she tried not to think about those things while at work.




She had an intern for a few weeks that summer, but Naraj would be leaving in the next few simdays to start his program at Pierce University. 




Suzanna watched the happy couple enter the exam room. This was their first ultrasound since discovering they were pregnant simweeks ago. 




Rosemarie settled into the exam chair and Suzanna expertly swung the wand around to view internally.




"Well, here's baby number one and there's baby number two."


"Twins?"


"Yes, twins. Congratulations."




She washed her hands and rushed out of the hospital to meet her husband for lunch. She was running late.



"Sorry, I'm l-" she barely spoke before Bradford grabbed her in his arms and swung her around.




"You're very happy today."


"You would be too if you just found out that you won $400,000 in the lottery."




"Wha-wha-wha..."




After a few simdays of letting it sink in, the couple made an appointment with a financial advisor.




Thanks to her advice they set up trust funds for their daughters and started foundations for scholarships to law and medical school in their names. 


The educational director was so pleased with their donations that the schools were renamed in their names.




Their mortgage was now paid in full and they had plenty in their savings and their current income was more than enough to sustain them without drawing from their large savings.




In fact, thanks to the winnings, they were now the second richest family in the hood, behind the Warwick family.


"I guess we don't have to worry too much about Laci's school if we manage everything correctly."




"Yep, and now we can finally go on that family vacation."


----
ROS-Win the lottery, $400000-Bradford.


With thier winnings, they established the Bradford McMillian School of Law and the Suzanna Carr School of Medicine as well as the Carr-McMillian Medical Fellowship and McMillian Law Fellowship.


The family didn't have many bills and only had a small balance remaining on their mortgage. They both love their jobs, so they won't be quitting and as professionals in the legal and medical industry near the top of their careers, they really didn't need the winnings, hence their desire to set up foundations-after taking care of family of course.

  1. Congratulations to Bradford and Suzanna! It's great that they were able to set up the foundations with their winnings and not have to worry about Laci's school fees. I might have to add a few more things like that into my ROS, although exactly what I don't know, since Nuidya don't "do" money. :)

    1. You don't have to make the lottery money, I have a lottery ROS coming up and I'm making it an object instead of the cash. Perhaps the lottery could be a trip or scholarship. Thanks for reading and commenting.

  2. Whoa! $400,000! That's amazing. Laci can go to vet school several times over if she wants to now, lol! But I love that they're using some of their money to help future sims who might want to study in their fields. Very generous of them.

    The most my sims can win in the lottery is $60,000 but I think I'm going to change that and add an extra category, to allow for these really big kinds of wins!

    1. I only have two options x*100 and x*1000, they just happened to roll 400 for x and the option for the larger prize. They are very generous and blessed, they have more than enough before the lottery and their families are doing well, so the prize money isn't life changin for them. Thanks for commenting and reading.

    2. Ah, I see! Mine can only roll a six, on either 100, 1000 and 10,000. Might be nice to get some bigger numbers up there, so I think I'll adjust.

  3. Wow, what a fortunate turn of events! It's good that money fell into the hands of such generous and responsible sims. I wonder where they'll go on the family vacation!

  4. Haha love that Bradford was so happy, who wouldn't believe. This was a great family to win it. Sure other families could really use it (um who couldn't besides the Warwick family that is) but this is a very responsible family and theyve already made the money go far and help out the community on top of that.

    1. Yes, he was beyond excited. This family has a level head on their shoulders, I doubt you would have seen them two years later broke and in worse condition thanks to the lottery...now some other families wouldn't be as responsible :) thanks for reading and commenting,

  5. They are so lucky to win the lottery.I am totally surprised.I was just thinking how unfortunate that their daughter wants to attend medical school and her parents may not be able to afford it.Her parents,both being near the top of their careers wouldn't be too difficult, but still it could be a huge burden,especially if they have other kids interested in college and graduate studies.I like how they immediately decided to start scholarships and open schools.This was a great update.

    1. Sending four kids to university is a big burden especially if more than one wants to do graduate school, so the money has come in handy and thanks to Monique's bank accounts, it's already multiplying into a nice nest egg for the girls. Thanks for reading and commenting,
