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."

one more hug from a stranger

(Anonymous)
Yeah, I'm too lazy to sign up for an ID just for one post... Ursula, I know you don't know me from Adam, and I'll probably faint if you actually respond to this post, but I'm gonna say it anyway, and it's a dead serious offer - I live in the Triangle, not too far from you, and my husband and I have a house that's bigger than we need so I have three rooms that you'd be welcome to call your own until you figure out what's next. The house is old and in desperate need of redecorating but the important stuff all works and it comes with some cool amenities like broadband internet and my cooking (I really am a good cook, ask my husband :-D ) You'd even have your own outside door, and of course Ben is welcome.

Aw, thank you! Y'know, I don't think it'll come to that, but there's a chance...

Oh my, you did respond, 'scuse me while I faint............ ya know, that offer isn't totally altruistic, one of those three rooms is stuck in the middle of a remodel and the other contains 10 years of junk that's in desperate need of sorting and removal so someone moving in would provide much needed motivation :-D
