The weather has been nasty with rain, ice, sleet and snow for the past 48 hours. The schools and after school activities were closed. Every learning activity moved online.
For my son this is out of routine. He needs to be out of the house at least once a day. Yesterday we managed it. But today even with the snow we decided to go to our community rec center for his evening exercise.
The roads though treated were slippery. But driving on the road seemed to be a better choice for us than being at home since my son’s anxiety was shooting up.
I was wondering if were we going to be the only family that would be at the gym? To my surprise the gym was buzzing with activities . The basketball courts were full, the fitness center mostly occupied and the swimming pool even had a birthday party.
I was thinking everyone had their own priority and made their own decisions to venture out in this weather. The same is true now as the pandemic reaches the endemic stage as people begin to choose what activity they need to do or not to do. We balance the pros and cons.
If not for my son I would have just stayed home and watched TV , but I did walk for a good forty minutes today. It was refreshing after being couped up in the house for the past 48 hours .😀
