2kute Raises the Roof!




As many of you already know, I have several health issues. I have had three TIAs (strokes) being that two of those were last year. I suffer from fibromyalgia, neuropathy, migraines, seizures.... and some other stuff with long names. The doctors can't do much for me anymore, just keep me on medicine to control the migraines. The pain from the fibromyalgia is just ever present as there is nothing that really helps.
For some unexplainable reason when I am up in the mountains I feel better.  The doctors say it's psychological, I say it's God's doing.
My sweet husband, Mr Kute, sole provider of our household since I became ill back in 2003, has been working 70+ hours/week to support us and is at the same time building a small house for us up in NC. He is doing most of the work himself with some help. We have been building since 2010, slowly, out of pocket so we don't add a second mortgage to our already tight budget.
He works here and every break he gets we drive up and he does a little work there.
Last week we were there and on the way down back to FL, I asked him how much it would cost us to purchase materials for the roof over the front porch. The house has a roof already but we couldn't afford the roof over the porch. He told me it would be around $600.
I thought that it was something that I could crochet like a mad woman and raise that amount. I really want to do this, I really want my roof and I want to look at it and feel good about myself, that I helped my husband.
So I talked to some friends from etsy  on facebook. These sweet people that I have only met online have offered to donate a few items to help me.
You see, when I told Mr Kute that I wanted to make money for the roof, he grinned and being married to the man for almost 32 years I know what he was thinking - 'it's gonna take her forever to raise that kind of money'.
Well, he was not counting that I had so many awesome friends.
