I am an addict

Posted by sara1955 on May 6, 2012

No, I do use drugs or alcohol to calm my nerves. I am, instead, addicted to patterns, fabrics, crafting supplies, crafting and writing groups (online), books, and research. It is quite a problem. But, it is one I have no intention of changing because I LOVE my addictions.

I am on so many mailing lists for group talks on crochet, knitting, writing, tatting, history, and recipes that it’s just silly. I don’t have time to read them all. So, I create folders to hold the emails. That way I can go read them later. Do I read them later? Ummm . . . . no! LOL  Most of the emails I receive are digests, so I can go online to read them. So, do I get rid of the email? Ummm ….

You see where the problem lies. I need a personal assistant/secretary to get rid of all this unnecessary stuff.

I craft, read, and write, sometimes actually for pay, most of the time for enjoyment, and almost always to give something special to someone. I have very few items that I keep for myself. So these addictions are in the way of the time I could use for doing the things I like to do. They’re counterproductive. But, will I change? Ummm . . . probably not J

In the meantime, I have all my little emails waiting for me to take time to do something with them (we’re talking in the thousands), and crafting supplies waiting for my hands to attack them, and books waiting to be read then reviewed, and research projects waiting for me to take time to read and write about them (I’m working on a novel). But . . . oh look! Another pattern for me to grab and save!!! I’m off again!
