Brief hiatus. Also overworked and underesourced. Shares needed.

No energy or time for anything but a cut-and-paste job. The day went to hell right off the bat this morning, and the already overloaded task list got pushed back even further. Not much sleep on tap for the remainder of the weekend. In the short term, the crew is [mostly] taking the coming week off, save for a couple of very specific tasks for Monday morning only. It's not money this time; this week was covered. One of the guys needs the time off himself, and Spirit knows we need a break at this point. We're overscheduled and overworked on all fronts, and there will be way more than enough to do even without them here.

Still, work isn't covered much beyond the following week. We need shares, and badly:
  • 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 Lowe's gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. We're having to spring for lumber, lath, and plaster material locally (some of the lumber and a badly-needed saw were bought today). The rest of what makes it habitable — flooring, paint, appliances, etc. — are coming from Lowe's, which is giving us the best selection and price, and therefore best bang for our buck, but it's still a lot. A LOT. And so one of the best, most immediate ways to help at this point is with Lowe's gift cards. I have three separate denominations posted on the wishlist, but cards in any amount whatsoever are useful; they all go into the same pool.
Still, 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. Please T/R/share/donate to her fund if you can. Especially that last. It's needed.

Yes, I know I owe everybody replies and so forth. I'm falling further and further behind, and that's one of the reasons we decided not to work with a short crew this week; we have too much to get done, and too little time as it is. But we have to get it done, and I'm increasingly feeling the stress of this project in ways that are not good for my blood pressure (to say nothing of my sanity). So please continue to share all the links above, also daily. 

Thanks, everyone.
