Curse #50 - ADDD

I know of ADD, but I think I have ADDD.  What you've never heard of that? ADDD is Attention Deficit Decorating Disorder.

Let me explain.

My ADDD really showed itself on Cyber Monday.  For their Cyber Monday special, Kirkland's had free shipping on all orders, and since I do not have a Kirkland's near me I had to check it out.

For over a year, I had been looking for the right shower curtain for our bathroom.  Because our bathtub is only connected at two walls, I needed two shower curtains.

On Cyber Monday, I found the perfect shower curtain on sale at Kirkland's $12.  I found a 10% off coupon code that would cover sales tax, and with free shipping my total came to $24 for both shower curtains!

Shad was sitting across from me, and I told him, "I want to get this shower curtain.  It's a great deal, but then again I really don't want to buy this shower curtain." Shad asked me why and I went on to explain.

If I buy the curtain, I will have to put it up as soon as I get it.

If I put the curtain up, I will notice that the green paint from the previous tenants is absolutely unbearable.

If I paint the walls, I will have to fix up the light fixture.

If I fix up the light fixture I will have to fix the medicine cabinet.

Me getting a shower curtain is just like giving a mouse a cookie.  It's starts a domino effect that I didn't know if I wanted to start.  However, I couldn't resist the deal and bought the shower curtain, and just as I suspected I was ripping down wall border the very same day.  Who cares if the living room and dining room still need curtains, my ADDD kicked in and the bathroom was all I could think about.

Over the next few days, I'll be sharing a few projects from the room.....if my ADDD doesn't kick in.
