This FRIGGIN' month has started FRIGGIN' AWE-SOME!!

I apologize for my "explicit" language.
Please, don't shield your eyes from my obsessive cursing. It's going to be okay.
You will say the same when you read on!!
I was the lucky recipient of several FRIGGIN' AWESOME things this month!!
Please don't be jealous...it makes you gain weight.
 Instead, just say "FRIGGIN' AWESOME" & 10 good things will happen to you!!
(this statement has not been approved by the FDA or anyone really...)
1. Time for sailing, digging clams, crabbing, & getting mussels off the beach.
Here's what 70 degree weather looks like on beautiful Whidbey Island!
Don't be jealous of awesome beautiful islands.
2. I can finally enjoy a baseball game because now I'm watching my son play.
Can you say time for big pretzels? Yum! 
Don't be jealous of him doing awesome.
3. The sun told my dad & me, it was time for some father-daughter motorcycle riding.
We rode side by side for 3 hours & toured 2 islands!
Don't be jealous of my awesome sore bum.
4. After posting that I got asked to beta read, doors creaked opened.
 I got propositioned by a few more people!
Don't be jealous of my awesome new fat red pen.
"Living RunAway"

I just got a few AWE-SOME beta readers
to help me finalize it!!
Don' be jealous of the crying & agonizing during awesome revisions.
*REMEMBER: 5 jealousies = 5lbs gained!!
say "FRIGGIN' AWESOME" in comments for each pound gained
***MAKE ME GAIN WEIGHT: what "FRIGGIN' AWESOME" things did you do this month that will make me jealous???

You sure you're not from Jersey? Friggin Awesome is our most common buzz phrase here. LOL

I'm happy this month started out so great for you and you're family! I'm not jelly- and I never hate. Even though my month started out awful. Here's hoping all of that junk is behind us now and the rest of the month of May will be friggin awesome for both of us!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Does it count if I say "Fricken" instead?

R. Mac Wheeler said...


My bike is in Tampa.

I've been in El Paso since Jan 7.

Not good geography.

Suze said...

:) I love your awesome new fat red pen.

Tammy Theriault said...

Jaybird: no, but I like the jelly phrase!

Debra: that will do:)

R.mac: that sucks!

Suze: I'll share :)

The Happy Whisk said...

Fat red pen made me a laugh.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Sounds like you're going through an awesome month. Hope it keeps up like this!

Andrew Leon said...

I do not envy your pen... except, maybe, as a weapon. Because that's one pen that is mightier than the sword.

Tammy Theriault said...

Whisk: you may borrow only :)

Natalie: me, too!

Andrew: yes sire tis true!

J. A. Bennett said...

You are friggin' awesome! Holding the jealousies in. I guess I should just eat carrots today :)

Ashley Chappell said...

That IS an awesome day - congrats on all fronts! I'd kill for beautiful weather and islands to sail around right now :-)
But I have to excuse myself - 'Frackin' is my choice word :-)

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I did ALL the freaking awesomes and my pants are still tight. I want a refund. What I paid nothing? Well darn. Guess I'll just have to be happy for you :)

Tammy Theriault said...

J.A.: I love carrots! I'll eat them with you!

Ashley: that's a good word, too!

Elizabeth: well, I told you you're a size 1 not 0!!
