Jeneric Jeneralities ~ by JenIG

I think I need to find an “I've Been UnDone
By Lending Tree” support group.  We did not close on Friday. We
may have lost the house for good.  We'll see.  But at least
we are most certainly getting out of Sewer Flats since it's being
condemned and all.  I suppose I should start looking for a new
rental.  I will miss my nudie neighbor, she's actually a pretty
neat lady.  I hope my new rental has a nice nudie neighbor to make
me feel at home.

Now, on to pleasanterish news.  Our winners for the Learning Calendars are:
and tulip

If you won, you must email me at with your addy so I can send you your most glorious prize.

tell me who your favorite blogger is (and give me the link to their
page) and THREE of your blogger friends will win a most fabulouso
Learning Calendar, compliments of YOU.

    Oh Jen,

    I am so sorry — What a trial your family is enduring! This too, will be used for His good and His glory. I assure you of that!

    My favorite blog is by Ann at Holy Experience – she has one here at HSB, but I think she updates the other more regularly:

    Praying for you, dear one!

    I dare not post a favorite since there are so many that I enjoy visiting. Are you trying to get me in trouble or something?

    I’m sorry about your Lending Tree troubles and hope things get resolved soon. That really stinks.

    that’s like asking who your favorite kid is…right in front of them. But right at this moment, I guess I’d have to say Janne at because she’s the coolest. She has nine kids, is dealing with autism, writes her own curriculum, has a way cool blog AND was the first person to figure out my blogroll thingy and posts lesson plans with me every Friday.

    awww man!

    I’d be willing to be your neighbor, minus the nudie part. I can’t believe all the stuff you’ve been through…doesn’t it make you wonder what God is going to do with all this? I mean, gosh, he must have some reason for allowing these things to happen. Did you ever witness to the neat nudie neighbor? I’m glad she’s neat. It can make the nudie part less nudie.

    For encouragement and eternal perspective, try and get this hymn in your head, it’ll make ya feel better: “It is well, It is well with my soul”

    Hello Mrs. IG!

    Wow! I was reading the new Winter issue and, as usual, your articles were fantastic! The Takers, Gakers, and Givers one especially hit me. I’m afraid I fall into the Gaker category too. We are soo blessed to have the Lord!

    Well, I must go,

    God bless you!

    Fave blog???

    I don’t have a fave. I read all my friends’ blogs, and I enjoy them all. But, if I had to pick one, I’d pick Felicity, because she’s only 8 and just such a doll. She’s this happy little girl who blogs frequently and about sweet, random things. I’d like to encourage her to keep writing by giving her my vote.

    Many blessings!

    I'm so sorry to hear about all of your house problems

    This is making me sad just to read about it. I can only imagine how you must be feeling. Hang in there. I know God has the right place for you (and it ISN’T Sewer Flats! lol) and maybe the Lending Tree thing is just to hold you off until God shows you a better place to be???

    Hang in there, sister!


    And what is this about everyone getting their new issue of TOS already? Mine is not here yet! WAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!

    I’m with Marsha… I won’t give into your “fav” blogger prank… no sir-ree mam…

    As for the house… I’m sorry you’re in such a “crappy” situation… I think it could be because you’re supposed to be in Minnesota and living next door to me, where it’s always a good for a laugh… There’s even been sitings of a woman wearing a bathing suit mowing the lawn nine months pregant… but if I didn’t do it, who would? tee hee… nothing nude though… I keep some things for the bedroom. You can all go to bed thanking God for small blessings…

    Praying for you dear sister,

    OK, I'll take the bait. . .

    At this moment, my fave is Eleanor at,ink

    She has the perfect combination of funny, interesting, and encouraging. Her blog makes me want to meet her IRL, KWIM? Hope your lending troubles are quickly resolved!

    Well, we don't have a nudie, but we do have an older lady who golfs from one neighbor's yard to the next without permission (no kidding) and gets angry if an unsuspecting person parks their car on the curb making her next shot harder. She frequently hits cars in the neighborhood without so much as yelling "fore". She's quite entertaining…

    Anyway, one of my current favorite bloggers is Dandelion Seeds – always lot's of good ideas and inspiration over there.

    Oh no!

    I hope you didn’t really lose your wonderful house! But if you did, just remember what we told you about Newport. Maybe that’ll make you feel better. Anyway, there’s plenty of room for you all here in Blount County.

    My most favorite blogger is my friend Tia at Every single one of her entries is like a beautiful poem. I honestly don’t know how she can be so deep and lyrical every single day–but she is.

    A Big BOOOO to Lending Tree!

    Jen, So sorry to hear about the Lending Tree problems. I will be praying for you and hoping there will be good news tomorrow.

    Here is a joke to cheer you up: What do you call cheese that’s not yours?

    Nacho Cheese! I know, pretty corny.

    Oh dear, it would be hard to have ONE favorite. There are so many.

    Jen, I am so sorry about your troubles with Lending Tree. I am praying that the owners of the home you are buying will be able to patiently wait for Lending Tree to get their act together and that this will be resolved quickly. Keep us posted.

    Hard to Pick a Favorite

    Hmmm… I could enter a whole lot of people, but I’ll narrow it down to just a few:

    My browser is freaking out, so I’ll have to come back and list the others in a second… (maybe it’s time to wipe the computer clean again?)…

    Good house hunting

    God has a place in mind for you and yours. Just be patient and prayerful. I just refinanced this old house because we needed a new air conditioner. The old one was over thirty years old and broke down twice this summer. The first time it did it was only 109 F out and we made shades and practically lived in our swimming pool. We are only Yuman yanno.

    Oh, it’s so hard to pick! Of course, if you and Gena could be in the contest, I would add you in also!

    she is new to blogging here and at the homestead but she is a longtime friend of mine online and I think the learning calendar would be right up her “unschooling” ally!
