A pleasant surprise would do much to put your mind at rest now. You believe yourself to be at the mercy of someone else's decision and, as more time passes, are understandably wondering if you're setting yourself up for failure or disappointment. No news, they say, is good news. Even if you believe a process isn't moving forward or the only development might be a negative result, have some faith. The sky promises a good reason for optimism to replace pessimism, very soon.
