Max really wasn't sure what to do anymore. They were up to their eyes in debt and he questioned if he would live to see the day the farmhouse was complete. He never made enough at the store to really help matters.
Things only got worse when winter hit and brought the bad weather with it. Max walked into the store one morning to find half the counter top and floor covered in snow. The roof was another thing that was added to the list of things to be repaired!
Tina celebrated her thirteenth birthday and lost all interest in helping with the farm. Max was stunned that Joanne was so down to earth but Tina was wild. They were like chalk and cheese. He was glad that Joanne was very mature for her age and was able to handle the farm as Max had his hands full trying to keep Tina under control...
Notes: The farm really is an abomination. I used Round Barn General Store for Max's store and then it snowed indoors so there's obviously something wrong with the round roof. I had Max sell it and pay off some of the loan and despite my lack of building skills, i'll be building him his own little store. I did do a quick test with a home business but then the randomers were fishing in Max's pond and it bugged my happiness so community lot business it is! I'm not sure if Max will be getting a full time job or not, I suppose i'll see after i've built his store. If he does get a job then it'll be up to Joanne and Tina to run the store between them. Should be interesting, especially since Tina rolled Romance and doesn't care much about the farm!
