Primer and no pix edition. Shares needed.

I'm about to lose my mind.

I had photos to post tonight — before and after shots for the upstairs bath — but my laptop refuses to download them, and I cannot offload them anywhere else. How the fuck do professional photogs and image designers do he jobs with these things, anyway? It's been nothing but grief for well over a year, and now, it simply will not do anything, and I'm at my wits' end. No, don't anyone give me a bunch of tech steps that will supposedly work; my brain shut down somewhere around the first of the year when my pain levels jacked up, and I couldn't follow instructions if you paid me.

Anyway. Today was primer for the upstairs bath, and if my knees and hips and ankles and feet were screaming earlier, I don't know what the word is for it now, but it's that. Tomorrow will be the first base color coat; Monday, the second color (textured glaze). The third color for the last glaze coat was out of stock, so we have to wait on that, but I can start priming the bedroom in the meantime. I can't actually articulate the relief I feel at the prospect of a couple of weeks to do my thing without having the crew here. I'm so tired. [For those interested, the horses are adjusting better than expected, so that's one less thing we have to worry about right now.]

Even with two weeks off, though, the expenses will continue to mount, and so 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.
