As a result of nobody stepping forward and kidnapping me, I have decided to take matters into my own hands. And since it is impossible for a person to brainwash (de-brainwash?) herself into correct behavior, I'll just have to use a different form of therapy (because Retail Therapy is not working out so good for me).
I have decided to Do Something with my attic.
For four years I have procrastinated, but now I am finally ready to go forth and Clean Up the Place. I'm even going to paint - using a cool technique I learned on Decorating Cents. I will curb my impulsive spending by focusing all of my energy on rehabilitating this half-finished, sweltering hole of an attic!
Of course, this is going to require some shopping and cost some money, you know.
But I refuse to enjoy it!
