Trading an Afternoon of Shopping for Painting the House

I planned to drive down to the outlets this afternoon in search of new summer clothes. I’m in need of a few shirts for work and a new pair of shoes. But somehow or another I never made it to the stores. As the day wore on, one thing after another distracted me from the goal of driving south.

I woke up late, met up with good friends for lunch, explored a few new houses in the neighborhood, planned dinner and headed out to the grocery store. Before I knew it the day was half-way over and I was no where near the mall.

Rather than shopping I went out to the pool house, grabbed a handful of paint brushes and headed upstairs. I spent the afternoon repainting windows and windowsills. Best of all I fixed up the house and didn’t spend a dime.
