Bad but better edition. Shares and signal boosts needed.

Well, this morning was the first in a week that I didn't wake up feeling like I was going to die. We're both still feeling like absolute crap, but that's a thousand times better than a day or two ago. Not doing much yet, though, because we cannot afford to lose another week to a relapse. I need to get back to painting the upstairs, but that's got to wait a little longer.

I also need to find a way to boost sales. They're always abysmal at this time of year, with the closure (and no doubt worse this year with the terrible ski season), but even our online sales have slowed to virtually nothing, thanks to the mess in D.C. If we could just sell his concha belt, that would take care of a chunk of materials costs for the next few weeks. That plus a couple of other big-ticket items? We'd be heading into April okay. Unfortunately, this market is not that.

Here's the cut and paste part:
  • 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.
