I had to go downtown today and sure had a time getting there and back. I took the amount of money I needed for a round trip ticket. But I couldn't get the ticket machine to work so tried another one. The second one turned out to be for parking, not the bus/light rail ticket. I had enough to get a one way ticket and went and got on the first train that came along. Wrong train. At least I could get the free shuttle from either one, so I got to see some scenery I haven't seen in years and since they have changed a lot of things. Then I had to walk south to get to where I was going but had the wrong address, so was confused trying to find the place. I had trouble finding the room I needed to get to, too. What a comedy of errors.
On the way back, I knew where I needed to end up, but I needed to get some money to get the return ticket, so had to find a bank. Of course, I had passed the kind I needed and had to go back a ways. I finally got to the return light rail station and had learned a lesson and made sure I got the right train this time.
With all that running around I did manage to get some exercise. Now for some sleep.

It was a really nice, sunny, warm day today after a week of cold. Cassie and I stopped at the park on the way home from church today. We walked the mile around the park. On one side I noticed that there is a pull-up place. Now, I've never been able to do pull-ups, even when I weighed 110, so I knew I couldn't now, but it was something different to do. I thought maybe just pulling on there might be some strength training for my arms. So I did a few pulls on it. Then we continued around to where there is something for stretching and I did a couple stretches on it. I was surprised that I could reach my right foot up and lean forward with no problem once it was up there (bent knee). That was nice to find out.
This morning I got a text from my friend that her son was going home from the hospital today. He had surgery to remove a tumor from his brain just Friday afternoon. Praise the Lord for his quick recovery.

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.
