Day of [relative] rest, otherwise known as a sick day. Shares badly needed.

Still no e-mail. This bug is still with us, too — both of us. Bad enough, in fact, that we decided against painting today. It's bitterly cold, the wind has blown at gale force nonstop for three days straight, and our resistance is at a low ebb physically, so better to make today a rare day of [relative] rest. Regular chores, yes; work on the house, no. We have a hugely busy week coming up, and we have to be able to deal with it.

We also have huge expenses coming up. I don't know how we're going to do this, absent drastic change. I am bullheaded, and I will keep plodding forward, but there are such things as immovable objects, and lack of funds is a one hell of a big and immovable one. 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. 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. We're going to have to take care of the flooring very, very soon.
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.

In the meantime, please also take a moment to share the links above.

Thanks, everyone.
