I Need Help.

Dear DIY-ers Anonymous,
I need help. I am the first to admit this. I am ready to start with Step 1 and admit I have a problem.
This thing that I have, it is a sickness. I can't give it up, or even go a day without it, it seems. Last night I had planned to merely cut my tin panels to size and affix the templates. But no, I couldn't just leave it at that. Whereas I had previously stated that I could only punch one, MAYBE two panels in a sitting before losing feeling in my left hand, last night I cranked out THREE panels, in addition to trimming and adding templates to all the remaining pieces. What am I going to do? I have an addiction, and I fear it is going to consume me.
What will become of me when this project is finished, which at this rate will be tonight, rather than the end of the weekend as I had thought only yesterday. What will be my next vice? My log cabin quilt? Making a cover for my ironing board topper? Refinishing the old dresser in my garage? WHAT??? I need a sponsor, someone to moderate my activities and keep me under control...I fear for the life of my bedroom.....I'm feeling the inclination to paint again....I mean really, green walls are just not going to go with my new quilt....OH MY GOD!!!!!!
Really, I need help, please send someone to save me before my home becomes unrecognizable...

I would volunteer to be your mentor, but it would be a classic case of the blind leading the blind. I also feel somewhat responsible for your addiction.

Note to MonkeyGirl: Check it out. We've started an MEF movement! :-)

NV - Oh, don't worry, this addiction started looooong ago, I'm just getting a refresher course. Speakign of 'courses, I just finished teach my second jewelry class.

I would offer my help, but I don't think I would be a good sponsor. really, when I'm cleaning and trying to figure out what color I could paint the hall way that coordinate the various office/bedroom colors, I think I need the intervention.

If anything, I think that I could use your help. Because you actually finish your projects. I take on like 8 things at a time and it's a miracle if any of them are ever completed.

LOL well, from the sounds of it, at least I'm in good company!
