Back at it tomorrow. More expenses this week; next week's a question mark. Shares needed.

Thank all that's holy for heat waves.

This time last night, it was 17. The night before, 7, with a wind chill already well below zero. Tonight, it's 27 (even if the wind chill's much lower), coming off a high of 43, six degrees higher than the forecast predicted. I feel like I can breathe again a little bit.

It all starts up again tomorrow. We should be getting the house entirely closed in sometime this week; the front doors are due, although the day is still uncertain. It'll be a couple of weeks, at least, before the materials from Lowe's are delivered, which may give us room for the taping of everything upstairs but the bathroom (or maybe even that; I feel like I'm hearing a dozen different versions of what can happen). Thanks to a kind donor last night, and another one today (and profound thanks to you both), we'll be able to cover the week's labor and materials, but next week is a big question mark right now. So we need shares. Lots of them. Daily:
  • 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. Yeserday would have been Lin's birthday. It would be a fitting final gift to her to donate to Laura's safety net. Please T/R/share/donate to her fund if you can. Especially that last. It's needed.

Thanks, everyone.
