Jeneric Jeneralities ~ by JenIG

Oh my heavens, I’m about to have a heart attack.  Coie, as I type this, is outside backing up the trailer so we can get our new Whirlpool fridge into the house.  And I’m just sure that she’s going to lurch sidewards and my brand new shiny appliance is going to topple over, bust thru the side of the trailer and plunk into the mud. I had to flee inside and blog to distract myself or else have an apoplectic fit.


Me and Coie and Ryann went to pick it up just now since Geoff the Great is still at work.  Coie called and found a great deal and we zipped over to Lowes (yes, Lowes) to grab it. I was feeling pretty proud about our big-girl selves, until the fellow who sold it to us wheeled it out to the parking lot and we realized that we hadn’t brought any rope to tie the thing down.  The guy was kind enough to toss us a ball of dental floss.  Apparently he’d just gotten off the clock and was in a big hurry to get home. He said, “Well… here yeh go” and stomped off across the parking lot.  I spose it wasn’t quite as thin as dental floss, but it sure was thin scrawny stuff.  No matter.  I am thankful for it.


And besides, we Igarashi girls are made of stern stuff (and when I say ‘we’, naturally I mean Coie and Ryann – I just sat in the suburban and listened to Mark Levin).  We tied it down something fierce and we *did* make it home without incident


On a side note, I’m convinced that God likes me.  How else can you explain that the VERY day that my fridge decided to conk out was the same day that Rosetta Stone sent me a check for our OH show?  Holy Moly that $$$ got here quick and I’m so so so super extra thankful for it.


Ok, I’m gonna go.  Once she gets the trailer backed into the court I might actually go out and try and help shimmy that brand new beautiful big 21 cubit foot box of frosty icy paradise into the kitchen.  Hooray for cold milk!


PS Stay tuned… Rosetta Stone said they may let me give away a brand new Version III Latin language program.  Wouldn’t that be awesome?  I’ll let you know soon…


PPS Me and Coie will be in Arlington, TX this weekend.  Any of you gonna be at that convention?  Make sure to stop by and say hi if you are!  And I’m going to get to see my Aunt Dora and Gramma Nile – I haven’t seen them in ten years. I’m excited.

    Lowes.. ha ha ha.
    Remind me and my partner in crime “C.E.” to tell you about our latest furniture hauling adventure. Oh, the adventures that girl takes me on.. she would probably blame me. BUT don’t listen to her, I am innocent I tell you!!
    And this post made me miss you bunches. When you get back from your trip to the Lone Star State, you are coming over to my house. That is an order! I don’t want any excuses……!!! ok.. have a safe and wonderful trip. Praying you & Coie make lots of $$$!

    Not that this is even the point, but I thought that you didn’t even like Mark Levin. But perhaps I am wrong. I often am. I cannot believe that you tied a refrigerator to your suburban. That freaks me out just thinking about it. YIKES!

    Woo-hoo for cold milk!
    (Unless you have a fridge with a wonky thermostat like ours…and then it’s usually 1/2 frozen milk.)

    It sounds like you had quite the adventure getting it home – lol.
    What a blessing about your check, though! (definitley a ‘God-thing.’ ) 😉

    Hello Friend!

    I can just hear the chipperness in your voice and it warms my heart! Miss you ALL! Do you have a convention in Atlanta this year?? You and Coie could stay here! We would t.o.t.a.l.l.y. beg you, or even kidnap you and MAKE you stay here!!! We’re leaving for Virginia in two weeks for Richard to do his internship. That will last until mid August. So, if you are in Atlanta while we are here…PLEASE consider staying with us…we’ll give you the guest suite with your own bathroom 🙂

    Much love and hugs to you and yours!

    Yay! for shiney new appliances. Actually I could do for a shiney new couch right now. I can’t believe y’all tackled bringing that thing home by yourself! And, Ashley was proud because she carried a 45 lb. bag of cat food. haha.

    Our “situation” is progressing, even since I blogged a little about it yesterday!!
