Wall tile almost done; floors, more interior plaster, exterior plaster, and septic all begin next week. Shares needed.

Just two of the tile guys today, and they'll be back tomorrow. That's part of what they did today up there — cutting the tiles to fit the pitch of the ceiling. They'll be all finished with the walls tomorrow, if their current pace holds, and they'll start the floor on Monday. 

Sherm will be back with his crew over the weekend; the plumbers starting Monday; and Philip and his crew starting next Thursday. We at least got a bit of a reprieve for tomorrow, with an appointment rescheduled for June, which is a relief since we're supposed to have snow and icy roads tomorrow morning. Yes, we got snow this morning, too.

I'm on Day 2 of a monster migraine, so it's mostly cut-and-paste from here on in. As I've said previously, there's one caveat WRT to the Lowe's cards: They can be purchased in any denomination, I believe (I think the site said $10 to $2,000). I had to select denominations, though, for the wish list, which is why they're what they are, but people can always change it to a lesser amount. It all goes toward the interior work. Anyway, links are here:
We're okay for a little while longer in terms of cash flow, but that will change all too soon (and soon is  getting nearer by the day; massive payouts this week and next for the two biggest expenses, septic install and exterior plaster). 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. And if you do want to kick in a few pennies, the PayPal link is here.
I'm given to understand that Karen has made, or mostly made, her moving expenses goal, and that Lauralee has gotten a temporary reprieve from the court. There's another match on for Karen right now, to finish out the moving expenses and, as I understand it, give her a little breathing room for incidentals and maybe a start toward the next phase of what she needs for what I find myself thinking of as her "survival fund." I'm sure Lauralee can also still use the scratch while she makes whatever arrangements can be made for herself, her daughters, and their dog, so her link is here.
Many thanks and much love to everyone. Just like last night, I'm beat, and I have to get back to work. It's endless.
