Several weeks ago I was shopping at Sam’s Club and saw these smaller rubber boots. I have tall rubber boots that used to live in my van. I would like to blame the children for their disappearance. . . although it could have been me. I wore them. The children wore them. They may be in the basement. But, even when they lived in my van, they took up a bit of room.
Well, I knew I had boots at home. So I kept walking in Sam’s Club that day!
About two weeks later, I was back in Sam’s Club. This time I had thought about the smaller boots. They made sense. The less room they would take in the van would be a good thing. And, rubber boots come in handy when I am walking around new construction. So that day I bought the boots.
Today, maybe two or three weeks later, the boots were used!! New construction is almost always muddy when I visit the homes. I know there are days that the mud actually dries. It just never seems to be when I am at the muddy places!
Tonight I am thankful for thoughtfully buying the rubber boots! I am really trying not to impulse buy things because they look like they would come in handy. I am trying to be more intentional. So I am extra glad I took two weeks, thought about the purchase, and had these boots in the van today!
