I have some news that I don’t think will surprise very many of you. In fact, unless there’s a legion of readers out there who never comment and therefore have never made me aware of their existence, I think the majority of you already know.
Last spring Ibis and I decided to separate, and I’ve since filed for divorce. I really hate getting into things this personal on my blog, but I’m planning to change my name back to Hooyenga and I thought that might raise a few questions if I didn’t say something. I’d rather not get into the particulars, but the split was amicable and we remain friendly.
I can’t begin to explain how wonderful my friends and family have been over the past several months. I’ve had a behind-the-scenes pep team/venting circle/wishing-they-could-buy-me-a-drink-but-can’t-because-they-live-in-the-intertoobs group that’s kept me smiling and looking towards the light at the end of all this.
I have another six weeks, give or take, until this is officially behind me, and I couldn’t do it without all of you.
