Um. Once Again I Am Title-Stumped

Ok, I just got too much dangity stuff to say.  Let’s see if I can get it all down without sidetracking myself. 


But first, I just want to say that as much as I love Fall, I always always ALWAYS forget about the annoying inevitables that it brings.  I have a pretty mellow disposition (um…according to me) but there are a few things that drive me totally nuts.  The # 1 offender is hearing, or seeing, people eat.  Anybody.  I just can’t stand it.  Potlucks are a killer for me. And the second runner up is hearing people snort.  And without fail, every time Fall comes rolling around, all seven of my family members get hit with allergies and they wheeze, sniff and snort until I’m ready to staple everybody’s nose shut.    


Ok, where was I?  ah, yes, Maria FINALLY got back from her vacation that was entirely too long.  Hopefully she’ll post some pictures soon.


And, thanks to my friends Kellyque777 and DeeDeeUK for giving me a “You Make Me Smile” award.  You guys are swelliferic.  I am still waiting for somebody to nominate me for a: “You Make Me Roll My Eyes Every Time I Read Your Dumb Blog” award. It’s just a matter of time.  And yes, Christi, of *course* quixotic is a real word.  I don’t just totally make these up (most of the time).


Ok, what else am I about to forget?  AH! I could not forget this… we have another A.T.I.C coming up on Oct 12 at the Pigeon Forge Park (same as last time).  This is a FREE garage sale.  Just show up with any stuff you don’t want anymore and feel free to browse thru all the tables and take anything – and as much as – you want.  Maria has the full details / directions / etc, so email her and then show up! tnmomtomanyblessings at  It’s a *lot* of fun.  Coie is in charge of hauling all of the leftovers to a Salvation Army.  Unless somebody else wants to take it all and sell it on Ebay.


AND if you have not signed up for the Abingdon barn dance, you ought to do that soon.  We are *so* looking forward to this event, and best of all, the end result of our magnificent fun is aid and support for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Ethiopia.  The church is growing over there, and what an exciting thing to be involved in supplying their direct needs (medicine, vitamins, church buildings, bibles)!  If you are in, or near, my area (Morristown / Knoxville), there is a group of us meeting at (or near) my house to caravan up (it will take about an hour and a half).  Email me if you want to join our traveling party.


Lastly, my excellent, hardworking, dedicated, devoted, darling husband got a substantial raise.  His boss thinks he’s absolutely marvelous (I could have told him that).  Isn’t that wonderful?  Some of you know that the last six months have been relatively trying for us.  But these last couple of weeks we’ve been so blessed and flooded with gifts abundant (in all different forms).  What a kind and generous God we serve.  He is able to meet and surpass all of our needs.


Ephesians 3:20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen

    Yay, congrats to Geoff on the raise! And, you know, there have been times I've rolled my eyes when reading your blog, but never without a smile or without laughing! LOL! I can't read your blog without getting odd looks from my hubby because there's always something that makes me laugh. And I don't think it's dumb at all…I've really learned a lot and have been blessed by reading your blog!

    Hooray for Geoff the Great! Hooray for garage sales and free stuff, Coie and the barndance!

    I daresay this has been a great week for the Igarashi Mtn Clan. And that makes me happy.

    All those things so like so much fun. Of course living in Idaho, I don't think I'll make any of them. 😉

    LOL… quixotic. quixotic. quixotic. Ya know, because of the q, the x, AND the c, that is a HARD word for me to type fast. LOL. And it IS a real word. How funny.

    Now, what about "swelliferic"? That one's an Igarism, right? And, no… urban dictionaries don't count. ^_^ Only Igtionaries count.

    You crack me up!

    I love your headlines. You are definitly in a class by yourself! Even if you can't think of one, you are still the funniest (oops "most fun") person I know.

    And I might have to make up an award for you: The "You make ME roll around when I read your blog award." ME ROFLING. Every time.

    Hugs and congrats!

    you *totally* always make up words. Fortunately for you, half of us don't know it when you do, so you trick us into just thinking you're WAAAAY more smart than the rest of us with your "extended vocabulary".. Shouldn't have said anything- now we all know you're a fraud.

    j/k. you're pretty smart. but not as much as your little sister-I'm spectacularitiously brilliant.

    and I'm fantaboulously thrilled that Geoff got a raise- praise God!

    btw.. i remember you sending me away from the table because I wouldn't quit scraping my teeth with my fork when I ate. I didn't care about having to get sent away for a while, it was just hilarious watching you get so infuriated after warning me 10 trillion times. aren't I a brat??? well, WAS a brat. I'm simmering down.
