Another storm due in a few hours; wiring mess continues apace. Shares badly needed.

Yes, I'm posting things a little backwards tonight. Wings is dropping his newest collection tonight, having just finished it a short time ago, but with seven pieces, it's going to take me some time to get it posted.

For now: Shares. We need them. I also need something to give on this wiring mess, because I'm more than a little tired of being jerked around. Tomorrow is the current guy's last shot at it. I'm sick of being told it'll be done by a specific day and then no one even showing up.

I'm losing my ability to be philosophical about all this. Since January 1st, it has been one damn thing after another, in nightmare proportions, and I'm about done. My body can't maintain this pace, nor these stress levels, particularly when the weather is the mess that it is and my pain levels are jacked to eleven accordingly. The next storm is on the way, natch — due to hit late tonight and continue into Tuesday.

Much as I purely loathe it, I have to turn my focus again to fundraising in earnest. There's no choice; we have to get this done. So we need shares, consistently, daily, to everyone's networks, preferably with a personal endorsement:
  • Shares of our YouCaring page via the widgets provided, especially the widget code, which has once again been moved back to the purple box at the lower right-hand side of the page, that produces the image shown just above:
  • Shares of Wings's site; sales also fund the construction (indeed, they are the baseline for it). Testimonials help.
  • I've added Lowes gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. Those will really, really help with materials costs from this point forward. We need to keep the cash freed up for labor as much as possible, but we're going to have to buy a water heater, kitchen fixtures, flooring, and a host of other material items in the days and weeks to come, and this is the best place to do it. 
And before you share our links, please go share Laura's. Lin's spirit is where the water meets the light, but Laura will still need our help for a while. A fitting immediate legacy for Lin would have been funding her YouCaring effort fully by year's end, to provide Laura with the assurance of a safety net. There has been zero movement on it for at least a week, probably more. This is not acceptable to me; Lin's memory deserves better, and so does Laura, who has given so very, very much of herself in recent months for someone so many claimed to love. Please T/R/share/donate to her fund if you can. Especially that last. It's needed.

Thanks, everyone.

Also, the new collection will be up at Wings's site in an hour or so, so please watch for it and share that, as well.
