W is for Waiting: What do cucumber sandwiches, lemons and my writing have in common?

After debating the things W could be for (Work, Writing, Werewolves, the 5 W's and Wicked all came to mind), I decided to steal from Summer. Thanks Summer!
What am I waiting on?
  • Book 3 of the Hunger Games, Mockingjay, which I plan to purchase on August 24th.
  • My next library trip... things are getting a bit feeble in the reading department around here. I polished off Intertwined and Soulless this past week, and expect to finish I Capture The Castle on the plane tomorrow.
  • My next Borders trip. I loved Soulless, and I want to buy Changeless, which I don't expect to be immediately available at the library. I got some great books recs the other day in my reading post (thanks guys!) so I think I might go a little crazy. :)
  • Seeing M.J. tomorrow. This has been a quick three-day business trip, but I still sorta miss the husband.
  • For it to feel like summer. I think I need more laziness for it to feel like summer is here. At least I did get my grades back from this spring semester Statistics course: 99 on my final paper, 94 on my final exam, and an A in the class. Not bad given the number of times I thought I was failing! *Cue music* School's out for the summah...
  • Seeing my mom in a few weeks. I'm planning high tea, lots of Veronica Mars and The Scarlet Pimpernel, and some serious shopping. (Yes, cucumber sandwiches and Richard Grant -- we do a lot of anglophile things together. The woman did name me Guinevere, after all).
  • To finally turn the withering lemons in the fruit basket in the kitchen into a lemon meringue pie. I might actually have to buy more lemons.
  • To get back into a good writing groove. Speaking of which, I think I'll go write a novel now.
What are you waiting on?

I hate when I buy produce and don't use it in time and it goes bad. Then I feel wasteful. Good luck with your waiting!

Aubrie, some days I feel I spend much of my life just trying to keep up with produce. And thanks!

I'm waiting on four agents to reply to the full manuscripts they've requested. Pins and needles time.

I'm waiting to see how many votes I get in Melissa Marr's short story contest.

Check out my entry,

and if you like it, vote for it. If not, that's all right. Not every story can be a home run. Roland

Waiting for Glee to come on! I know super exciting right!

I'm waiting for life to slow down a little so I can have more time to work on my writing. Sounds silly, since I actually enjoy being busy, but right now I'm at a point where I'm TOO busy. Looks like things will wind down in July, when my job ends and I'll be settled in a new home. Just a few more months...

I know what it's like to be apart from hubby for a while, due to trips and such. Glad you're seeing MJ soon!

I'm waiting for the end of the year when I can walk out of my classroom and have some time to breatheand think and write.

May 28th, when we close on the sale of our house and the purchase of our new one. :-)

I hope you don't have to wait for too long as these are all groovy things to wait for!


Congratulations with your exam results!

Your lemon meringue pie sounds yummy!

Oh and I'm waiting for lunch! LOL!
Take care

Waiting on my editor to give me a thumbs-up/thumbs-down on my latest proposal. It's only been a little more than 24 hours since I hit send, but who's counting??
