So, that "very early morning" thing? Apparently the appointment was canceled "back in March," and nobody bothered to tell us. (Of course, "back in March" was before it was actually made, so . . . .) Anyway, that screwed with the entire schedule we had planned out for the day. On the upside, we got to see our friends from out of town again briefly, ad we also got some painting done.

That up there is what the spare room looks like right now. I got three walls done; Wings got the ceiling done; and the north wall and the edging remain to be done tomorrow. That kind of speed with this kind of work takes a lot out of me, though, and while I was hoping to have it done for Tony to work up there tomorrow, his stuff will have to wait for Wednesday. He's been lathing the lower story on the exterior while we were working upstairs, and if the weather forecast is accurate, Sherm and his crew will be here tomorrow and Wednesday (or not, because climate change is really screwing us right now, monsoonal thunderheads notwithstanding). 

At any rate, this day has me absolutely beat, and the rest of the week is going to be more of the same, so as with last night, I'm just cutting and pasting from the previous night's post:
We're okay at the moment on [the cash] front (although how long that will last is anybody's guess, given that we're in the final and by far the most expensive stages). So as I said last night, right now, the best ways to help are as follows: by sharing the link to Wings's site (preferably with a testimonial, if you have some of his work), because sales are gonna keep this thing rolling; and sharing the link to our wishlist (which badly needs updating), with an emphasis on the Lowe's gift cards, because those are what will help us pay for all the stuff that will make this place liveable, like a water heater and flooring and so forth.
As I also said, as far as folks in need of immediate help with donations. Lauralee needs help badly right now. So does Karen. Please share their links, and kick in if you can. They're both on much tighter timetables, and there are health and safety concerns at issue for both of them. We'll be good for a little for both as soon as we can, but right now, we have a $1,425 repair bill for the truck hanging over us that has to be paid next week. After that, I can calculate where we are a little better, and squeeze some out of our most recent sale for each of them, I hope. 
I have a lot to do tonight for [tomorrow]; it's going to be a very busy, very stress-filled week here. Many thanks and much love to everyone. As to everything else, I'm going to keep saying this: It's time to fight.
