I’ve always tried to keep this blog as honest as possible. Sure I’m snarky and enjoy making thinly veiled references and inside jokes for my friends and loved ones. Yes I may have a bit of a dramatic bent. Sure I may oooh and ahhh over things that others find mediocre. But all of that is still honest. I’ve tried to keep this page as true to myself as possible.
Because of that. Because of the importance of that to me I haven’t been posting often at all. I don’t have writers block. I haven’t run out of things to talk about. I’ve been writing almost constantly actually… secreting it away to a place it will never see the light of day in an attempt to keep the peace. To retain a sense of equilibrium. But mostly, to maintain some privacy for K, Mike and I in what has been a difficult time.
There’s no good way to phrase it. To soften it. To make it any more or less better or worse than it is. Mike and I are divorcing.
I’m not going to get into the why. I will tell you that our daughter, our beautiful amazing phenomenal daughter knows. Our families have been informed. I haven’t made an effort to contact individual friends to let them know because as much as I don’t want them to be caught off guard… this is about us and I’m doing what I can do. Focusing on making sure that K and I, and Mike as well, get through this.
For me? This is very private. I can stand whispers. I can stand people questioning behind my back. I can let people wonder and discuss as long as they don’t involve me. Mike and I are not the same that way. He just needs to get it out there. To have the knowledge available. And so it’s for him that I’m writing this.
He and I have had a life together for the last 10 years. Not just as parents and husband & wife, but also working together on several podcasts and other productions. The only part of our union that is currently ending is our marriage. We’ll continue to be parents to K and we will continue to produce our shows both in studio and at events. To this point we’ve been able to remain friends and we both want very much for that to continue.

I am sorry to hear this, though I am very happy that there is maturity and dignity in how you are going about this. I look up to both of you a great deal.
Lots of love to you all. I’m here if you need anything.
I love you all, take care of each other,eHugs until later.
It’s always sad on some level to see a marriage end, but often it’s the path to the best possible future for everyone involved. In your case, I trust that you and Mike have thought things through and are making a well reasoned choice. I know you both will work to make your new relationship as healthy and positive as possible for K.
All the blogging, podcasting, tweeting, etc., that you’ve given us have put you and Mike in a bit of a public spotlight. That’s got to make this even more complicated that it already is. Let’s hope we in the community provide you support and space as you need each, and avoid the gossiping and other negativity.
My warmest thoughts to you, Mike and K.,
Love and hugs to all, you know where to find me if you need me.
i’m here too. loads of hugs travel towards you on the fibre optic stuff.
Thank you for sharing this difficult news. I think you both are wonderful people who will work this out in the best way possible. Let me know if you need anything. Hugs!
Cami ~ I hope the hurt is quick to subside, and that everyone can come out of this with new happiness. You’re a strong woman and K’s a lucky daughter.
Holy cripes! You two have such great chemistry on the air (err… on the internets…?) that this seems unbelievable. Most of the times that I have seen splits, it has been obvious for months, if not years, to everyone but the two people actually doing the splitting. In other words, they’re in denial until things become messy and awkward for everyone. It seems like you two should get medals or something because you are acting like mature, responsible adults in an otherwise crappy situation. (Thank goodness, for K’s sake!) Best of luck to you both, or rather, best of luck to all three of you.
Be well, stay strong, and take good care of yourself – this goes for Mike as well.
You know I love you all and am always here for whatever you need. You already knew that but I’ll just say it here for the record.
I’m sorry to hear it. As someone who’s been having a fairly challenging year, family-wise, myself, I have great sympathy for you all. I hope that you are able to come out on the other side with stronger relationships, even if they aren’t the same.
I’m so so sorry. Suck.
Holding a space in my heart for you three as you navigate this part of your story. I’m wishing peace and comfort to you.
