After having spent a week with Tina Traveller, we now focus on her mother, Trisha, who is 61. By the way, her lifetime want has changed - she now does not want to earn 100.000 Simoleons anymore, but instead would love to be a Mad Scientist like her daughter will hopefully be some day. Of course, it is too late for her to achieve that; but I'll try and make the rest of her life as good as possible for her.
Trisha still lives in the house left to her by Carlos Contender, the true love of her life. It is lonely there all on her own, and more than once she has been thinking of having her daughter move in with her, now that she has graduated.That Monday morning, she feels rather unwell. One more reason to call her daughter, she thinks. Maybe seeing her mother so frail will soften her heart.And in fact, Tina does not hesitate one moment when Trisha asks her to move in.Maybe it's also got to do with Tina having seen for herself how hard it can be to get comfortable financially, maybe the prospect of getting to use her Mom's flash car to drive to work was a contributing factor... anyway, she's here for good now (and that is one household less for me to play next round, yay!).After Tina has left, Sharla Ottomas walks by and is greeted by Trisha.The two ladies take advantage of the pool in the back yard for a while.Then Tina thinks she should be getting the place in order, now that Tina has finally agreed to live with her, and does some badly needed gardening.Where will Tina sleep? That's easy! The upstairs gym Carlos was so proud of has never meant much to Trisha.
It is converted into a spacious loft for Tina, where she can sleep, study, has her own bathroom and even enough room to entertain her friends, if she likes.
Later, when Trisha falls asleep, Tina decides to surprise her mother and makes burgers for just the two of them.
