Good News!

After a bunch of Dr.'s appointments and poking and prodding...whatever was on my left ovary is gone! Hooray! God answers prayer for sure!

In other news...I am in the midst of working on my reading list, and have completed one book. I will make sure to post when it is finished. I now have #23, a Texas Driver's License...check! I have started #41, crocheting a blanket...check! My friend Zach needed some vocals on a song he recorded, so, #46, I did that!...Check! And... #44, the hedges have been trimmed (although, I cannot take credit...Amber did it while I was gone) sort of check! And finally... #38 I redid the pictures in my bedroom. Check! It's coming along. I'll post pictures soon. So far...I am also keeping up on journaling, blogging (mostly), and date nights! (not doing so well on the working out...I'll get better though!)

Believe it or not...

they selected one of my pictures! They didn't have thousands of entry's or anything, but today I was surpised to hear that the City of Carrollton selected one of my photos for 2nd prize. Not too shabby. Plus, I get $100. And the winner is....

# 20

Good news! I have accomplished a goal! Actually...I have accomplished more than one, but I will wait and post about those when I get a picture.

First, let me apologize for not being particularly timely with this post. I wrote this big long post about goals, and then I didn't post for over a week.
This has been a really crazy week for me, though. In fact, I could really use all of your prayers. I have been having some health issues, and the doctors found a large growth, among other things, on one of my ovaries. Over the next few weeks I am going to be having a lot of tests done to see what we do from here. At this point we do not know if the growth is cancerous or not, but given my age, we are optimistic that it is not. So, will all the Dr.'s appointments and such, it has been a fairly busy and stressful time.
I am doing great though! I really am sure that God has this whole thing in his hands! So, on to the good part!

The city that we live in, Carrollton, TX is rebuilding its website. So, they had a contest where people could submit photos of the city. This was a perfect opportunity to accomplish something on my list! I have absolutely no expectations of winning anything, but it was definitely fun. You could submit 10 photos, so I figured I needed all the chances I could get!
