Ida Dortmans is an ex-townie, who moved to Clayton Village in order to start working as a maid. Some of you may remember seeing her flirting with Bennett Nova on community lots during previous rounds.

Her aspiration is Family/Fortune.

During her townie years, she got involved with another townie, Lars. Now she wants to move forward with him.

 photo ScreenShot9022.jpg

She's already been hired as a maid by several of the other residents in Clayfield.

The City of Clayfield hired Ida to work as the head of cleaning services in the Memorial Hospital, meaning that she'll get to live in a staff apartment on the top floor of the Hospital. As a staff member, she's able to eat for free in the cafeteria.

She didn't hesitate to call Lars over the first day.

They were already in love, so Lars moved in.

It happens that Lars is already a member of the Hospital staff!

So he proposed to her, right there on the parking lot.

Although he does want to make a commitment to Ida, he has couple of crushes already to other townies.

They had their wedding at the city hall and Ida took Lars' last name.

The hospital gift shop is already doing quite well.

Ida makes pottery for the gift shop and that way earns little extra.

Both of them want to start their own family right away.

Poor Isilme came by one day and experienced the horrors of a breaking elevator!
Seriously, it sounds like straight out of horror movie..

 photo ScreenShot9061.jpg

Baby is on it's way!

 photo ScreenShot9062.jpg

During daytime, Lars works as the repair man in the hospital.

But he doesn't seem to be doing pretty good job, since the elevator is breaking all the time.
(Which is funny, since I've never seen that in my game before)

Elvis managed to spent over 500§ in the gift shop!

On his day off, Lars went to visit the Science Center. There Steve had started selling smart milk and thinking caps.

He also got to know some of the most loved members of the community.

Ida is about to pop any minute.

This pregnancy is very tough on Ida.

She's constantly passing out and having nightmares.

 photo ScreenShot9093.jpg

And clearly she thinks that the cook in the cafeteria doesn't know what he's doing.

 photo ScreenShot9094.jpg
 photo ScreenShot9095.jpg

Since Ida has to spend most of her time eating or in bed, Lars has to do some last minute shopping for the baby.

 photo ScreenShot9096.jpg

He also met some of his friends during the shopping spree.

 photo ScreenShot9097.jpg

And finally, it was time for Ida to sign in as a patient.

Game notes:
- The Memorial Hospital is zoned as residential lot, which makes it easier to have sims stay there. The gift shop runs as a home business. Sims who are staying in the hospital have to play a fee which is 300§ per night. The staff members (or other sims) who live in apartments, pay rent 100§/day.
- Korey Thackray and some of the teens from TC work in the gift shop.
