Saturday night's fundraiser blew past my hopes.  The full amount raised was $760 dollars, give or take a bit.

I've transferred enough to my bank account to more than cover the check for the oil delivery that will arrive this afternoon.  The car insurance renewal is done and paid.  I'll be able to get to my massage therapist and physical therapist this week, my health permitting, as well as go back to see the doc-in-a-box to have my lungs checked again.

Now I'm going to be a big sap:

You guys are the absolute best.  I can't go to my family, as they all are in straitened circumstances themselves.  My husband doesn't want to ask his parents for more than what they already do.  All of you who helped out are real-life angels.  I wish there was a way to reach through the wires to hug each and every one of you.

Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.

2:00 PM PT: Thought you folks would want to know, the oil delivery was just made.  100 gallons are in the tank, just in time for the cold snap.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
