I went to church this morning. They had one of the special services they have during the year. Debbie Milligan from Healing Wings Ministries was there. She does mainly a singing ministry, but also a message and she goes all over the country ministering to people. Most of the music she does is something that she wrote. We always enjoy when she comes.
Later I came and got Cassie and went to meet Spark Team members at the park for a walk around the park. It was a nice, sunny day.

I just cannot see any hope anymore. I survived the cancer, but the radiation has affected me so that I cannot go back to work outside the house. I am lucky if I can go outside the house without major problems. So I cannot pay my bills. I have not been buying anything but necessities and I have nothing left on credit and no money. I have been told to move from the house I grew up in to government subsidized housing, but I had a friend there (in this town) who was beaten almost to death when she tried to do her laundry. The cops wouldn't do a thing about it. What point is there in conquering cancer and trying to get my health back when I face moving to a place where all I can do is sit inside the locked apartment in fear and never do anything again. Every month I face the bills I cannot pay. Before I had something I could borrow from, but no more. There isn't anything left in that account to borrow from. NOTHING! I don't know what to do anymore.

Today one of my teams started May challenge. For this I chose to do the squats and also am trying to do reverse crunches (challenge also has a choice for crunches or squats). Now those reverse crunches can be a problem. You see, I have a dog, Cassie. Cassie loves people. Those reverse crunches are just too tempting for her since I am on the floor. So she just couldn't resist to get her nose in my face and ears. I did get some reverse crunches done, but I wasn't exactly in the right position because I kept having to fight her off. Ah, well, that is the fun of having a dog. If she hadn't been right there, the cat would have been.

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.
