No delivery yet. No end point, either. Sales and shares needed, though.

Newly-sealed bathroom tile.  Well, "new" as of Tuesday or so. In theory, the rest of the tile will arrive today, but it hasn't shown up yet. Wings thinks they won't show at all, but as usual, I am foolishly optimistic, even though I am also usually wrong.

Today is the archetypal example of that tendency on my part, of course. It's been a difficult summer, with a couple of hard markers for Wings last month and this, and my own of two days ago. Today is harder yet, a day that was supposed to be devoted to one endeavor, and is instead once again stuck in a holding pattern while we wait out circumstances beyond our control. I'm having a hard time with it, although on this, Wings is the optimist, insisting that he will make everything happen, and even better than originally planned.

For now, I'm reduced to jumping up and going outside every time I hear a large truck (which, on this highway, is practically every other vehicle), because if they do show up, the rain and the torn-up turf from the septic system mess mean that they can't just drive in and turn around anywhere they want. In the meantime, I'm trying to figure out how to juggle our funds to pay for labor and materials that can only be bought here, while trying to stretch our remaining gift cards as far as possible. Unfortunately, there is a LOT more to go, so we need to  make some sales, and I need to share the links:
  • Wings's site, for sales;
  • Lowe's cards via our Amazon wishlist;
  • Lowe's cards via the company site; and
  • Home Depot cards via the company site. The e-version using my e-mail address is great; I take the tablet to the store with me, and they scan it off the screen.
Not much has changed the last few days: I am going to be mostly unavailable — not for some of the reasons I expected, but still mostly unavailable nonetheless. It's also still true that I'm also mostly not very up for talking at the moment, not until we make enough progress that I can see that 1) there's actually an end point, and 2) we get to have a life out of it. Right now, it's not feeling like very much of either, and the fatigue is overwhelming for both of us.
