I'll tell you why:
- I had a toddler in the house. My friend Crystine says she painted her house with a toddler around, but she can also read a book while crocheting (she turns the pages with her toes). I'm not up for that kind of frustration. I could just see little footprints in paint all over my carpet. I didn't want to go there.
- I would have had to do it all over anyways. Last year I painted one wall. One wall. And it already needs to be repainted due to popped nails and general kid damage.
- I was writing books! Who has time for home improvement when in the middle of a major writing project?
