God doesn't want me to paint

coolbeanswAugust 15, 2012

Decided to do the painting in my hall bath reno -- too small to hire a painter, I think. Bought and painted swatches of 4 different colors, all icky. Settled on 5th color, and bought a gallon. Primed the walls today and managed to fall off the step stool and land wrist-first on my new porcelain tile floor. Aaaargh. Spent an hour in the ER to learn wrist is sprained, not fractured. Yeah! Five hours later -- with much icing, bandaging, and Advil -- decided to try to paint, before the toilet and sink are installed tomorrow morning. Opened the paint and discovered .... It's the wrong color!!

Thanks for listening.

At least you didn't break the new tile ;)

Sorry, and hope you're pain-free soon!
