Well, it's official. After approximately 3 years, 3 months, the relationship/poly-fi quad/squad/cult/fire team/tasty snack with a crunchy center/gang known as The Smoosh has dissolved back into (as near as we can tell right now) its original two couples. I'm afraid that I can't really offer much in the way of details at this point, and possibly not ever. As recently as yesterday afternoon I thought that everything was going exceedingly well, so this is a huge life change in a very short period of time, and I'm pretty thoroughly stunned by it all.
I may not be as active online for a little while as we try to pick up the pieces, and I may not be quick to answer e-mail (like I ever am!). Or I may be online constantly, looking for some kind of distraction. Most likely it'll be short spurts of both, but it's waaaaay too early to tell right now for sure. I may also be craving activities and distractions in meat space, so I may be hitting up those of you who are local.
As far as the inevitable "is it an amicable split?" question goes, I don't know about the long term. All things considered tonight's Conversation was relatively hostility-free, which is good sign. Time will tell.
