The word of the week

The word of the week is “rejection.” Sad! Rockclimbergirl doesn’t always get what she wants. I guess one way to look at it is that rejection is a learning experience that means that I’ve tried… another way to look at it is that I’m making progress on the fear of rejection, which will make it easier for me to take chances and try for things because I won’t be as afraid of the unpleasant feeling that results when you don’t get what you want. In theory.

On the other hand, I could use a break right about now. Universe? Please?

The upside is that tonight I get to climb at the gym with the girls; the other upside is that the weekend weather report is lovely, so there’s a chance of some time on real rock and/or playing outside in between my housework plans. I’ve been jonesing to get out to Exit 32 in North Bend for ages and finally got to whet my appetite last Friday. I prefer Exit 32 to Exit 38 (although, I haven’t fully explored Exit 38 yet — there are probably gems there that I just haven’t climbed yet, and there is a new crag being developed, Shakespeare Wall which is getting good reviews from folks who’ve visited).

Anyway – here’s hoping that your week is going better than mine, and that the too-good-to-be-true weather report holds. I’m very, very suspicious, since it’s Rhody Week up in good ‘ol Port Townsend, which generally means cloudy and overcast. We’ll see…
