Sub-zero temps again tonight. More cash outlay today. Shares badly needed.

No photos tonight. I've been awake since three, up since four, and we've both been on the run all day long on house-related errands spread far and wide. We didn't get home until just before dark, and after a whole day in unrelievedly, bitterly cold winds (sub-zero temps until about 9 AM; sub-zero wind chills even thereafter), we're both wiped out. As it happens, it is exactly nine degrees above zero at this moment, with a wind chill of one, and both will go well below zero tonight. I literally had to wear my earmuffs indoors this morning, it was so freaking cold in here.

This whole month has been ungodly expensive, and today was no exception. We're going to have to raise additional monies soon, whether via the YouCaring effort or through sales, or we're going to have to lay the crew off for a while. Between the rewiring mess and the plumbing and the gas line and the labor and everything else, we'll be cutting it very close again very, very soon.

There's no other way around it. We need shares:
  • 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.
