Errands and exhaustion edition. Shares badly needed.

No painting today after all; just errands and exhaustion. For both of us. This past week was an absolute nightmare, for too many reasons to explain here. Losing Cree was only one small part of it.

As of today, we're reconstituting the crew. Wings fired the electrician last week; there will be another shake-up, too. The crew (two returnees) will be off until March 6th, so that we can regroup a little bit physically. The drain on us has been indescribable, and we've been paying for it health-wise. No more. But even with two weeks off, though, the expenses will continue to mount. I'll be back to painting (and possibly starting the priming of the bedroom) tomorrow, but we're going to need to buy flooring and the materials for the interior plastering downstairs very, very soon. We need to make sales, and 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 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.
