Picture from Pixabay, as always My mom died in September of 2003. She and my dad were married on this day – August 1st – in 1958. Yes, my dad is that old. On days like this, I remember the woman who she was at the end of her life. I wonder sometimes what things […]Read More Station Status Update – It would have been their 60th anniversary today
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
How many of us feel overwhelmed by everything we have to get done in a day/week/month? *raises hand* I know I do. I have a bad habit of putting things off to the last minute, forgetting about stuff that needs to be done, or stalling during the day and not getting everything done that needs […]Read More Station Status Update – The importance of creating a schedule when you have too much to do
(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
Yes, the Amberwoods Station shop got another update. This time I pulled most of the stuff off of it and focused primarily on steampunk. Yes. You read that right. I’m focusing on steampunk for now. I do have a couple Middle Aged Simmer items in there, and I will be adding a few more from that […]Read More Station Status Update: The shop got another 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!
