The sound of primer is screaming joints. Shares needed. Badly.

No, I have no photos; I couldn't download them even if I'd remembered to take them. I have no e-mail right now, either. The space issues on my laptop are going to make me lose my mind, if the other stressors around here don't do the job first. I'm at the stage of actively searching for a solid wall so I ca go bang my head against it. It would be as productive as anything else right now, and it might hold the added benefit of amnesia. Heaven knows there are things I'd like to be able to forget, even if only for an evening or so, right now.

At any rate, yes, priming proceeds apace, and no, I didn't even think to get photos, because I can't hear anything beyond the screaming of my joints right now. If I'm lucky, I'll get back to color tomorrow. For now, I have to come up with a way to gin up sales, given that Cree and vehicle issues wiped out everything we'd made via recent ones. I also need to find a way to jump-start donations, because it's about to get very expensive once again, and there's no hope of rest or sanity until the house is just done

So. Shares. We need them. 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.
