Fun ~ what a great topic!
I'm right there with you on the concerts, Dallas ~ I love music and can enjoy it on a deeper level now that I'm sober. Last summer we saw Little Feat at an outdoor setting near-by and after the show I remarked to my husband "I'm sure glad I finally got to see Little Feat". He said, "Anne, we've seen them twice before."
It sure makes a world of difference when I remember
the concert. This summer we saw Dr. John & The Neville Bros., in the Spring we saw Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt, and next month we are going to see David Bromberg.
Same with Broadway shows ~ we've been going to one or two shows a year since we're married, 21 years ago. Difference is, now I enjoy them and remember them. Used to be that I'd be itching for the performance to be over so we could get out of there and hit the bar across the street. Coupla times, when I was still drinking, we'd arrive in the City a bit early so we'd stop at a bar before the show to kill time. Once I started drinking, I would have forfeited the expensive tickets for the show right across the street and just sat there and continued to drink, if my husband didn't have the good sense to pull me out of there.
I've gone back to college in sobriety to get my degree, and I enjoy learning.
I love exercising, I work out every morning before work, I bike ride on the weekends, I take yoga lessons.
I love socializing and laughing with friends.
The beach, swimming, kayaking, tubing, water-related fun is awesome.
I love creative outlets as well ~ I've taken a pottery class, a painting class, and a drawing class.
Vacations are lots of fun, also ~ week after next we'll be in Boston and Cape Cod and I can't wait!
Geez, Dallas, just about everything is fun these days because the weight of the world has been lifted off of my shoulders and I am freeeeee!
Love dem blues ~ hope it's a great show....
