I can be honest and say that I am pretty much a part-time recluse. I work and I go home. I am perfectly content to be home reading, watching tv and crafting.
To be social, I will hang out with my best friend at her house on the Lake.
I decided in 2014 that I would make a sincere effort to get outside of the house at least once a month. I figure I should start small.
Last week was my socializing for the month of January. On Saturday night, I volunteered to be the reporter/photographer at the Kellie Pickler concert.
I got all dressed up and off to my first country music concert I went.
I had a good time. I had conversations with folks around as a reporter and just as a person. I danced to Pickler’s music and took some pretty awesome photos.
I actually stayed out to 11:30 p.m. Normally, I stay up late around the house but outside the house, I am in by 9 p.m.
After getting a few hours of sleep, I got up early on Sunday and drove to Pickleland to visit three old friends. I felt like I was in the Thanksgiving episode of Will and Grace where they had the egg timer set to visit each of their family members. I had a great time seeing everyone but realized it needed to be a leisurely weekend visit.
I got home about 7 p.m. I was happy but exhausted. Being sociable is hard work. My best friend wants to be part of my “be more social” exercise. She has asked me to select an event for both of us in February.
