Bad winds, but no rain. No time, either, & too many expenses. Shares needed, and badly.

Yes, I've used that photo before, too. Still no time to deal with the computer issues.

No time for anything, actually, but that doesn't stop anyone else for demanding labor (or money). I have gotten absolutely nothing done today that was on my list, and that's the same as the rest of this month, because no matter how hard I try, I cannot get 1) sufficient resources to turn people loose to do their thing, and 2) cannot get other people to go to do their thing and quit expecting us to do their work for them. Yes, I'm extremely crabby right now; I just spent the last hour battling bad storm winds (tornado weather that ultimately seems to be bypassing us, at least for the moment) that produced only a couple dozen raindrops. It managed to tear plenty of stuff apart, though.

I'm at the point where I'm losing my mind: We're so close, and yet so damn far from being able to move into the house, and every single second I spend in this toxic tin can is driving me that much closer to the edge. It's hotter than hell, dusty, smoky, moldy, miserable; I have no space and no useable, functional fixtures and appliances; and coming up and seven years of this is about six years too long. I have got to get us out of here, but we can't do it without other folks sharing our links. Because I have hours' worth of more work ahead of me, I'm cutting and pasting from last night from this point forward, and I really, really need people to share the links:
I am one month out from a big deadline and I have no way of getting it all done. Certainly not without shares, and not without raising a WHOLE LOT more money, whether via donations or sales. I am up against it now and at my wits' end, what little I have left, anyway, and I can expect very little sleep for the next four weeks. We need help, and badly, to make a lot of this stuff happen. It's not just the $2,500 for materials/labor next week; it's $1,700 for the electric, and ungodly amount for the flooring, $4K for the exterior top coat, and none of that includes the kitchen appliances and cabinets, water heater, or the disaster that is the septic system.
Here are the links, because we are going to need shares every single day just to put a dent in it all. Please, PLEASE share them, consistently:
  • First, to donate, the PayPal link is here
  • Second, for sales (which we really need to make, and I'll be highlighting some of his high-end stuff on the site this week), 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 finally, 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. [Shout-out also to the generous person (tm, maybe?) who bought the molasses, which is how we medicate the horses, and to the three folks who sent Lowe's gift cards.] A note here: To tile the downstairs, we'll need to go to Home Depot, which doesn't sell gift cards through Amazon; they can be purchased through the company's Web site here.
Many thanks and much love to everyone. I have to go back to work now; in for another long day, and very long night. I'm out for a good long while dealing with all this stuff.
