Still not able to get back to work. Crew returns in five days. Shares needed.

Profound thanks to the folks who kicked in on the YouCaring page yesterday and today. The crew comes back on Monday (well, two members of it), and we need to be able to pay for both their labor and the materials they're going to need, and this will help make that happen.

We've got a long way to go, though.

We've got a long way to go in getting stuff done ahead of their return, too. Between tomorrow and Sunday, we need to finish the priming, finish the bathroom painting entirely, and with luck, at a minimum get the master bedroom/hall/closet base coats under way. Better would be to get it finished and get onto the spare bedroom, but that's unlikely, given my energy levels (nonexistent). I can't remember the last time I was this sick. I also wonder how much of it is aggravated by having to sleep every night in this place. We can't get out of here fast enough at this point, but the reality is that it's still months away yet, and that's only IF we can keep materials and labor funded consistently. There's going to have to be a final funding stage after this one's wrapped up, and it's going to be a lot. 

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. Now I have to make dinner, and after that, I may go straight to bed. I feel like I'll never catch up on all the sleep I lost last week (hard to sleep when you can't breathe, which is what pneumonia does), and I haven't been well enough yet to get out and do anything.
