I wished for leaves on my lawn during the fall season, now I have them and I need to go outside and rake them up.
I wished for nice weather, but I made myself busy so I wouldn't mind the dreary weather that this October brought us -- and I missed the changing landscape.
I wished for a different tree on the side of my driveway, and the existing tree died. We planted a new one and now I need to wait for it to grow.
I wished for the dog to be calm enough to stay in the yard by himself -- now he does -- but that only means he is getting old.
Is this what I really wanted?
