Picture is from Pixabay, as always. Okay, as I said yesterday, let me introduce you to the Green Man nightmares. It’s dark. I’m in an area that looks very similar to the neighborhood I grew up in when I lived in southern Idaho. But it’s completely blanketed in a fog that glows a dark emerald […]Read More Station Status Update – The “Green Man” nightmares (NOT based on the Green Man of mythology)
A good representation of what life’s like right now… I am utterly exhausted so this is going to be a very short post. My life seems to be quite chaotic, often inflammatory for my poor temper/nerves, and the PTSD is flaring constantly. It’s blazing through my brain like the wildfires plaguing CA and OR. I’ve […]Read More Station Status Update – Life sucks some days
(I created this image myself using a PNG image from pixabay.com and GIMP. For having never really done much with GIMP, I’m rather pleased with the result.) As the image says, I’m doing a charity livestream on Saturday 7/21/18 to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). I’ve done a lot of research and […]Read More Station Status Update – A charity livestream and a promise I HOPE to be able to keep
So just a rundown on what’s been going on and why I’m not posting as much as I used to here: The move to Portland has been postponed until next spring (March or April) because we just can’t afford it right now and there are things we have to get before we can move – […]Read More Station Status Update – More info on moving and a general life update
Okay, so I promised this last week but…stuff happened. Let me start out by saying this – no, the situation with the roommates isn’t any better. We’re at a stalemate right now and just trying to co-exist without stepping on each other’s toes. We’re at least back to being civil so that’s a good thing. […]Read More Station Status Update: Moving info update
Hi everyone! This is a follow up to the “I’ve gone nuclear” post. Let’s cut to the chase here – housing everyone in Oregon sucks. Everywhere you go you’re looking at anywhere between $2500-$4000 just to get into an apartment, and that’s if you’re lucky. And rent isn’t cheap either. Many studio apartments – and we’re talking 300-400 […]Read More Calling all artists, poets, and clever people! Help a desperate shopkeeper here!
I woke up angry, probably because of my roommate situation imploding. And the worst thing is the particular roommate who caused the situation? Won’t ever admit the fact that they’re the cause. They’ll blame US for everything. Yet they are the one responsible for every bit of stress caused to both me and my husband […]Read More Station Status Update – Why I need to move NOW!!!
(No, I didn’t take this picture – but I wish I did. As always, any photos/images used here, unless directly stated, come from Pixabay.) So it’s April. Spring. And I’m finding I don’t have a lot of energy to enjoy what few sunny days I see on the coast. Not just because of the hours […]Read More Station Status Update – April 2018
Hi everyone~ You may have noticed that Amberwoods Station has been fairly quiet of late. That’s because I’m usually so exhausted by the time I have a moment to blog I’d rather spend what energy I do have on working on the novel – which is on its second draft and, well, moving slowly. I’ll update […]Read More Station Status Update – Why I haven’t been here much
