I left the house!

There is actually a world out there!  

After three days at home, I finally left the house.  Almost forgot how to drive.  Just kidding.  As I've mentioned before, I do try and stay home as much as possible.  Just to go out for the sake of going out feels wasteful to me.  To some people, staying home so much would probably drive them crazy.  For me, I am perfectly content in doing so.  So, where did I go?...

First place was to church.  I admit that it was tempting to skip, but once I was there, I was happy I had gone.   We attend a very small Christian church of maybe 30 people or so, and that is when most of the regulars are there.  My dh and I do believe in supporting our church financially and that is part of our budget.  I never flinch when writing and giving that check.  

After church I came back home to let our boys (dogs) out and to make a quick lunch.  Then I headed the opposite direction of our church to go to work for a few hours.  I like going to work on Sundays because the office is quiet.  It usually listen to Dave Ramsey in the background as I go about my work.  

A quick stop to our local grocery store completed my big day out in the world.  While it was certainly not what most would consider an exciting day, it was an intentional day.  I accomplished what I set out to do and stayed within budget.  It was a good day.  



  1. I'm the same way. Content to stay at home for days, but then I need to get out for a bit, at least. With all the snow DH has felt like he needs to drive me (LOL - these are flat, plowed streets, so I'd be fine) but Sunday I finally went to the store by myself for the first time in weeks. I felt like I hadn't driven in forever!

    1. Funny that you say that about your DH feeling like he needs to drive you around on snowy days. My DH feels the same way when he is home. Um, how do I ever manage during the weeks he is away? lol Still, it is nice that they are concerned about our safety!

  2. If I didn't have to go to work everyday I could easily stay home everyday. I do try and get errands done during the week if I have any. I go before work or at lunch and that doesn't allow any browsing or impulse shopping. If I can stay home from 5PM on Friday until 8AM on Monday I am a happy camper!

    1. I'm with you on that! Also helps save money by not shopping!
