My name is Julie...and I'm a "junkaholic"
There was no "light bulb moment" or sudden revelation with this admission. I've known for years that I have a serious addiction to junk!!
I hunt for it, dig for it, lug it, accumulate it, repurpose and resurrect it. Sometimes I set it free to a good home or greedily hoarde it for myself. I've had cuts, bruises, sprained fingers, and aching muscles because of it.
My heart races with anticipation when I pull up to an estate or garage sale...when I wait in line to get my number at an auction...or when I walk through the gate at a flea market!
Some people would read this and say "you have a serious problem"!! But they just don't get it! I'm comforted by the thought that I'm not alone. All my kindred spirits can relate to this feeling of which I speak. I want no drug and there is no cure---Just a good JUNK FIX!! It puts peace in my mind and contentment in my soul knowing that I'm doing what I love!!!
