Tonight my friend and I went to The Passion Play. This was my 3rd year to see it. They put on a really good play each year. It is all volunteers from several churches in the area. Every time I cry when they whip Jesus and crucify him. Tonight, though, I couldn't stop crying. I cried even when Jesus showed up after rising from the dead and leaving the tomb. I cried all during the song "He's Alive." I cried when Jesus was ascending to heaven. And I cried when they had the call to the altar. Well, I've not been embarrased to know Jesus or be a Christian, but have been to go up in front of everyone and admit I hadn't gone up to the altar before. This time, though, I went up there. And I was still crying when I went up and was standing there. I think I finally quit when I got back to my seat. I have never had that happen before. Though I have always believed in Jesus Christ, I think that Easter will mean more to me this year for some reason.
I hope that everyone has a blessed Easter.

I'm having extreme problems with finances now and have been trying to figure how to get to the doctor's office without having to use my gas. It ends up a question of having to walk about a mile from the bus stop. Well, I am not used to walking a mile. So I am trying to get to walking more by next week.
Today I walked twice around the lake at Washington Park. That turned out to be a half mile each round, so I got the mile on that walk. Added to the rest of the walking I did today I got over 2 miles. I know I'm not ready to do that every day, but I will get there. I am also hoping that I can get up to a 5k by May when they have the Furry Scurry at that park (that one goes around the entire park). I don't know that I can actually join in because of the cost to register, but maybe I can follow them or something.
Now, if the weather will just stay such that I can handle walking in it.

Orzo looks like he is getting a little better with Cassie except when she tries to get in my lap or starts to follow him. I sure hope so. Last night I didn't get much sleep because I was afraid he'd get in a fight with her again.
Today Cassie and I went to look for a collar for her, but didn't find one I liked very well. So she is wearing Venture's. I couldn't find any of the other collars I kept around. We did get some training treats and started teaching her the "sit" command. I also took her over to the vet clinic for introduction. We were going to go for a walk afterward, but my gut started acting up again. This afternoon it started snowing again, too, after being 57 earlier in the day.
I have been trying to keep my calories and carbs under control. I have been a little under most days, but up over 1200 some days, so I think it works out. I just want to get back to healthy. Now I have even more reason with Cassie and Orzo here in my life.

Today ended up a rushed day to get a new dog. I called a friend to ask about ACD lines and what would be good for a possible therapy dog, which I would like to bry to do with one. She said she had one that she would give me who is very sweet and laid back that she thought would be good. We were going to meet next month, but she was about half way here today, so we met today. Cassie does love people and she is just fine having a cat around. Orzo (the cat), unfortunately, does not like having Cassie around. He attacked her. So I will have to keep Cassie in a crate when I am gone unless it is warm enough to leave her outside in a run at those times.
It's comfortable having a cat and dog in the house again. I just hope it doesn't take too long for Orzo to get along with Cassie. Cassie will give me a nice walking pardner, too, so maybe I can eventually get up to walking a 5k. I know that doesn't sound like much, but it will be quite a bit for me.
