W is for Waiting

I’m not participating in the A-Z Toolbox thing, but I totally have a W for today. I’m tired of WAITING!! This doesn’t have anything (that’s a boldfaced lie) to do with waiting for agents to get back to me (LOL), but all the other things that have my life in a holding pattern. Like:

  • a box from my grandma full of See’s Candy. It’s supposed to be here today and I can’t leave until it arrives. I don’t want my precious chocolates to melt!

  • my homemade blueberry-struesel muffins to get out of the oven.

  • my awesome sister (aka Nanny) to get here. She’s staying ALL summer. WOOT!

  • Baby No. 3 to make her arrival. I’m a really bad pregnant lady.

  • Spring to really get here.

  • my puppy to stop acting like a puppy (that’s only going to take five years)

  • that brilliant idea that’s going to move my plot to my next imaginary plot point.

What kind of things are you guys waiting for?

    I hate to say I’m waiting for the weekend to get here, because then I’m not enjoying the moment, but alas, it’s true. Hope your muffins turned out good – yum!

    I am so bad at waiting, I’m 36 weeks pregnant and sooooo tired of having a gynormous belly! I went early last time around, so I’m crossing my fingers, but it’s not looking good… I have two friends who are pregnant and usually go two weeks over their due date–I’m pretty sure I would die.

    @Red Boot Pearl: I’m 34 weeks and DYING to get this baby here. Went to a playgroup today and had lots of people offer their start-labor-remedies. YUCK! I keep telling myself, “If I can just make it till May 13th…” but it seems so far away.

    Good luck, get some rest, and enjoy!

    Try seven years for the puppy to start acting like a puppy. Unless you get another puppy, in which case Puppy #1 grows up fast and looks at you in that way that says, “was I this obnoxious?”

  • Gina Blechman

    I’m working to get my query and synopsis to their most perfect forms by the end of the week so that I can then spend lots of time waiting (and stressing…and eating chocolate and cheese & crackers) for agents to reply.

    I’m waiting for my writing to be perfect 🙂 I’m going to be waiting for a loooooong time. So, I’m also waiting for patience. And waiting and waiting. ha!

    I was waiting for my spring vacation week to come… but now its here. Woot!
