And I need to change that! I’m beginning to think that the climbing gym is pretty safe and, with good hygiene, is safer yet. I need to stop in and make sure the padlock on my locker is still intact and see if they still have beanies in stock with the gym logo on them—they look really cool and would be, I’m sure, really warm! If I buy one, maybe I won’t have to use it. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to work? Either way, I’d like to get one. They look fun in the photo that the gym posted.
I miss climbing so much. The reason I haven’t been to the gym is that I don’t want to inadvertently carry something home to my mom’s house and expose her to it. I’m much less concerned about getting something myself. My system is strong and I am used to getting through really bad respiratory illnesses because I get one every year. So far, I haven’t had one this year and I’m hopeful that I don’t have to go through that this year. So far, so good. I need to get back to climbing, and soon. I’m going crazy…literally! I need my support system amongst the climbing community and the physical and mental health that comes with climbing. I just don’t know when the right time to go back is. As I said before, I don’t want to expose my mom to anything.
We no longer have a mask mandate in my state, but I wear a mask anyway. One more layer of prevention for myself and others. I don’t judge people who aren’t wearing them—that’s their choice and I can respect that. For me, it is the best way to avoid certain things, and I hope that others can respect me in the same way that I respect them. In short, it’s been a really long year. For everyone. I’m going back to the climbing gym soon. I just don’t know how soon. I’m waiting to see how the vaccine works, too. That’s a topic for another post.
