So. Um. Huh.

Well.

This is not an entry I particularly wanted to write, but since it'd be weird if I didn't--I record so many details of my life, and it'd be pretty obvious eventually if I was leaving it out--it looks like James and I are splitting.

Yeah, kinda sucks.

We're doing a trial seperation first. It's all very amicable and almost desperately congenial, nobody's really at fault, but, well....we had a bunch of good years, we got each other's careers started, and I've got no regrets. Still, we're both obsessive workaholics, and after awhile we just grew apart. We're great partners on the practical stuff, but eventually that's not gonna keep stuff going. So we'll take a few months, get the finances worked out, and I'll find a place of my own and...guess we'll see where life takes us after that. I'm not sure if I can make a living on my own on art and writing, but I'll give it a damn good try, and more than that, one cannot expect from life.

I'm alternating between calm and wrecked, as one might expect. Still, I'm taking it pretty well. The nice thing about the axe falling is that you're not worrying about whether the axe is going to fall.

So...well, there we are.

Funny the way life goes, sometimes. But as Grandma used to say--"This, too, shall pass."


I'm sorry you both have to go through such a hard time, and no matter how amicable, the change itself is still hard.

No one looking from the outside really knows how it is on the inside of the relationship. I am happy to see the solid display of support and friendship without judgement shown in other comments.

Good luck.

Eaaagh, now I just feel terrible.

Dare I ask what happened...?

I really hope it works out for the best... whatever the best solution may be.

Just another random reader going "huhwhaWAITHUH?" and wishing well for a couple very awesome people I've never met.

I'm sorry. I hope it goes as smoothly as such unpleasantnesses can go.

I'm so sorry, and I wish you well.

*another lurker chimes in*

I'm sorry to hear this; you've mentioned him so often that it was obvious that you two got along well. I hope this works out in the best possible way, hun... :(

Oh, wow...I'm very sorry to read that. In the posts where he's mentioned, it seemed you got along well.

I remember a while back you mentioned wanting to write, but you weren't sure if you could make a living at it. Have you considered self-publishing at lulu.com? I mention it because you already have a following from "Digger" and this journal so it might work for you.

I hope things work out for the best for you and James (and the cats).

Well, ouch. My condolences and best wishes for the future.

I sincerely hope that you will come through this and be able to continue to be friends.

I'm sorry to hear that. Let us know if there is anything that we can do to help you. Having a pack of somewhat rabid fans has got to count for something, after all.

I need a roommate. How do you feel about Ohio?

Hey, sorry to hear this! I hope it all works out in whatever proves to be the best way for the both of you.

Bugger.

I hope you can avoid the unpleasantness a lot of breakups have. Good luck to you both.

So sorry to hear about it. *hugs* I hope things work out for you. I really hope your art and writing can be sufficient for living on your own. I had a question about the cats, but saw that answered somewhere else. Take care of yourself and if there's anything we fans can do, let us know. You'll have a horde of volunteers!

this, too, shall pass

you know, as much as i've heard that phrase, it really took hearing a good friend of mine put it into her own words to drive it home for me. and even still, it can be hard to keep to and really believe in. i wish you the best of luck and, hey, maybe this will spark a demand for print. "must help ursula make money!" ok, not the best joke i've made. but, along with all the rest of your fans, i'm sending you my love and strength
