No painting today. Shares badly needed.

The post for Wings's site will come later, but I need to get this up early, and I'm already way behind on this day. Way behind on everything else, too. I can't paint (the hip spasms are moving steadily up my back now); the electricity bill has tapped us out; and there's no hope of me getting any writing (or anything else) done while my stress levels are what they are. 

That's where we are as of yesterday, in the photo up there. The downstairs bath is mostly done; some of the east wall yet to cover. Next week, they'll finish that, the utility room, the pantry cupboard, and the viga area on the north side of the living room, then move back to the east wall to start the second coat.

IF we can pay them. As of right now, we can't. 

We need shares, and we need sales, and the only way that happens is to get the links in front of as many people as possible. Here they are:
  • Wings's PayPal account, for donations to the house fund. Out of a $30K goal, we've raised an $4,200, leaving a balance yet to raise of $25,800 (grateful shout-out to E and TL for yesterday's donations). If that link doesn't work, it's tied to his e-mail address: wingsoftaos [at] newmex [dot] com. Also, that link? It's a direct one now, rather than via the "Donate" button, so it should work better.
  • His Web site, for sales (always preferable, and the base upon which the whole project hinges anyway, along with paying our day-to-day living expenses) — and just by the way, he's got some really incredible new works up now.
  • Our Amazon wishlist, which contains Lowe's cards that will allow us to purchase some materials more cheaply than here in town, and also allow us to divert the extra funds to labor costs.
Many thanks to everyone who's helped us get this far. As I said yesterday, I'm sorry this post is so negative, but I'm at the end of my rope on this, and there's still so very, very far for us to go.
