May 2023 Updates

I haven't come up with a snappy title for these announcement posts yet. If you have an idea, leave a comment! I'm back to KMS part time, but I'm also starting a new job tomorrow, so we'll see where that leaves me. I still don't have a full diagnosis, but improvements have been made and… Continue reading May 2023 Updates


Missives from the Recovery Cave

Greetings, everyone. It's been a while, hasn't it? I'm not back yet, not completely, but I find myself in other gap between temp jobs so I am once again able to put all of my (still limited) energy into KMS. I am still planning on keeping a low profile, so to speak, until at least… Continue reading Missives from the Recovery Cave



This is not a post I wanted to write, but if you've been following along on Twitter, Ravelry, or on Patreon, then you know that in the past few months my health issues have gotten to the point where I can no longer manage a "side hustle" of any kind; I'm barely getting through the… Continue reading Hiatus


A departure

This week we’re taking a break from our usual content to talk about something that has deeply impacted my life, and has once again reared it’s ugly head: Domestic violence. This conversation might be triggering for some, so if you’re not ready for this discussion, feel free to check back next week when we return… Continue reading A departure


New Patron Goals

In the interest of keeping a roof over my head, I've recently tweaked my Patreon just slightly. All the membership levels are the same, but I've added some new membership-based goals. My Patreon has been fairly stagnant for a while. I'm not entirely sure why, other than "just offering text rewards/author patreons are hard." So,… Continue reading New Patron Goals


Back in Black

It's been a while, hasn't it? But I did need that time off. I'm not sure I would have been able to meet any of my deadlines for July or August if I'd been concentrating on the blog, too. We moved the last weekend of July; not far, but if you saw my Twitter feed… Continue reading Back in Black



I'm back! We have internet again and things are slightly less crazy. I love living in Kent/Seattle. Everyone has been so wonderful here, and I really love the location. Both physically and mentally, I feel healthier than I have in a really long time. I'm still getting back into the swing of blogging. After more… Continue reading Return


Thinking Ahead

The past few months have been difficult. I'm currently working with 2 different doctors to try to solve my personal energy crisis. Some days, I can do all the things. Some days, I sleep for 13 hours and spend my waking time wishing for a nap. Needless to say, this has had a drastic impact… Continue reading Thinking Ahead


What’s Old is Now New Again

Warning: This post is about to get political. I spent the 4th of July watching WWII movies. The world had become a terrifying place. In the last two years we have seen so many awful changes in the US. There's more violence. People struggle to make ends meet as industries not supported by the current… Continue reading What’s Old is Now New Again


General Life Update

Back in August, I shared about a difficult situation Ash and I were going through. If you've followed my twitter feed at all, then you might know that things got incredibly bad there for a while. We thought we were going to lose our apartment, and our only hope was relying on a rather unhealthy… Continue reading General Life Update
