Don't Leave the House.

David is out of the country on business this week, and I had planned on visiting family. At the last minute I had to stay here because we had to have some A/C repair done. Luckily, it's government housing, so we aren't responsible. On top of that, this house is only 6 months old, so it's still under warranty. Apparently when they were nailing in the baseboards, someone nailed through the A/C line and it's been leaking slowly ever since. So I'm stuck here while they fix it and won't be going to my parents house. Without someone to cook for or clean up after, I am extremely bored. I really, really want to go shopping today. I know I can find some great deals, but I have to keep reminding myself that no matter how great the deal is (unless it's free!) that if we don't need it, it's still a waste. And frankly...WE DON'T NEED IT. I decided the best way to combat my shopping urge was to reorganize my stock pile. It worked really well because not only did it get something accomplished that need to be done, (my stockpile was looking like a stock mountain) but it made me realize all the stuff we had, and that no, I didn't need to leave the house and bring MORE stuff in. I also found some things I had laying around that my sister would love, so I'm taking them to her next week.
I have tons of stuff to keep my busy this week when I really put my mind to it. My truck needs to be washed, the grass could be cut, my garden should be weeded, and my microwave needs a good scrub down. Plenty to do and no time to shop=a No Spend Day!!!!!
What are you up to this fine spring day?
