Not What I was Hoping For

Somethings just don't happen the way you hope/wish they would.

For example, last Wednesday, the Princess had her Battle of the Books competition. Out of  schools, they came in 4th. Of course, I was HOPING for 1st..... but.... it doesn't always work out that way! :)

Wednesday evening, I also didn't win the 7th largest PowerBall Jackpot.  (Of course, to be considered, I'd have to buy a ticket, and I didn't do that either!)

Thursday, I went for my follow-up with my neurosurgeon. He re-did my CT scan and determined that my aneurysms have not changed. They haven't grown, but they haven't gotten smaller. In all honesty, I was hoping God would just take them away--since my Doc said that they never go away without surgery. I was hoping God would prove him wrong. The good thing is that I'm healthy and don't have to go back until next February. (I am thinking about changing to a doctor closer to home. I'm not sure I want to drive to Charlotte just to be told "everything is fine".) The best part is that they haven't grown. There is still not much concern over them. :)  God is good! 

Yesterday, we sang some old songs with the Praise & Worship Team!  We sang some new ones too. I loved it!! I always love singing! This is never a let down! 

I'm hoping to have my VBS volunteer meeting next Sunday right after church. (I'm hoping it turns out well and I have LOTS of volunteers!)

Finally.... this morning, at the gym, I was hoping to do a 5K on the treadmill. (I'm allergic to everything that grows so this awesome Spring-like "Winter" weather we're having in NC is killing me!  PLUS.... I'm terrified of dogs! So I don't do outside if I don't have to!) Anyways..... I did 2 miles. I guess I should edge up to the 3.1 miles slowly and not try to do it all at one time.

I've gotten my mile time down to 14:09.  I did two miles today in 30:49. (Yes I slowed down on the 2nd mile!!)

What have you been hoping for in your world?
