Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.


I'm splitting off the discussion about horses to the "off topic" board.

Yoda - Please don't post any more giant pictures in the forum. I'm going to shrink these. But that's work, so next time I'll have to just delete them.

Also, please don't post any more horse pictures in the main boards. If you want to post horse pictures, shrink them so they don't mess up the board formatting, and then post them in the Off Topic board.

another horse from Yoda (removed from check-in board)

Here is a pic of Dusty, my bestest bud:

Do you ride those horses?

Do you ride those horses? What size are they?

The horses are about 12

The horses are about 12 inches tall. Some are plastic and some are resin and a few porcelain/china. Sometimes I go to "live" shows where we line the horses up on tables to compete for ribbons and trophies. I have paid from $12 to $1500 for them. It is becoming a serious problem as I am now 9 months behind on my mortgage and my mortgage holders are NOT happy.

Here is one that looks like my real horse. They will have to pry this one from my dead cold hands.

I especially love showing my little horses in the performance division. Here is one of my cross country jumpers (with excess sticky wax - ignore that):

Yoda - D.A., maybe?

I keep recommending fellowships to you, but this just pops out at me. If you are spending money to add to your horse collection instead of paying your mortgage, you have a serious compulsive spending problem. There's a 12-step fellowship that deals with that directly: Debtor's Anonymous (D.A.). They also help people with underearning and I go to D.A. meetings because of that. It's a very useful fellowship, but it's not in all cities. It started in New York City, and New York still has the most meetings. You can check on the Web if there are meetings in your area.

At this point I will take all the help I can get...

because my life is spinning out of control. DA sounds like exactly what I need. I have been watching another horse auction ending on ebay tonight and have soooo had to keep my fingers off the bid icon. He is only $69 but my debtors would surely like to see that $69.

I did not see a local meeting when I googled DA but I did send them an e-mail asking for locations.

As far as me and my relationship with Mary Jane - I would not find it hard at all to end our long friendship. Actually this year has been pretty lean as I feel that less money up in smoke is more to spend on plastic horses.

So I guess I am a multitude of problems. Surely there must be others here who are or who have been totally overwhelmed as I now am.

I did not get any decluttering done today but I did feed and hug my horse. In my world if my horse is happy I am happy. I would have fed and hugged my kid but he went to sleep early.

no worries, Yoda, you're just...

...a garden variety addict - or as they say in AA, "another bozo on the bus". We all feel that our problems are uniquely terrible, but they're not. We addictive types are all pretty much the same. We all do just about everything compulsively and obsessively - by nature. But we can learn another way.

AA is in every city in the US, and in most cities across the world. You can definitely find an AA meeting in your area. There is no other fellowship that deals so directly with the problem of an addictive personality. You will love the meetings. Everybody is just like you, and we laugh at ourselves and our obsessions. It feels like coming home. AA will show you the way out. And with your daily pot smoking and addictive personality, drugs and alcohol are a big danger to you. You shouldn't go near them again. I'm nearly 10 years clean and sober myself.

There are phone meetings for DA. You could go to face-to-face AA meetings, and do phone meetings for DA. The phone info is somewhere on the DA Web site.

Get OFF eBay now!!!! I'm gonna check on you in the morning, okay?

Go pick up 10 things in one room of your place and put them away or throw them out. Do that instead of eBay, okay?

See you tomorrow.

pushy, pushy, pushy...


Closed ebay tab. Oh, god, it's killing me!!! I N-E-E-E-E-E-D MORE HORSES!!

Okay, I did it!! Ten things, decluttered. Photobucket - Video and Image HostingHey that was pretty easy! I didn't even have to get off my bed since there was a trash bag already in here. Maybe tomorrow I can declutter until I can see floor again.

See? You can do it if you try. :)
