Life lately

It's been a while since I said anything about what's going on, so here ya go.

Ben is talking a lot more lately. This is a huge relief. It's like something clicked with him and he finally sees the value of communicating with us. His pronunciation isn't always great, but he's got the idea of what words are for. Finally.

Zoe can sit up on her own, and crawl short distances, and just yesterday pulled herself to standing. She is a really happy baby - everything is funny, and she smiles all the time.

I've started exercising in the mornings. Situps, pushups, and jogging. Wow, I am out of shape. What would have been a mere warmup half my life ago beats the hell out of me now. The pain I am in tells me I really need to do this.

Good things are also happening in the home front, but I'm not ready to put forth details. No, not another baby. I do expect not everyone will understand or approve. That's ok with me.

Work is work. I'd be lying if I said it was perfect, but I won't be talking about anything here that bothers me with it.

I'm trying to find a product arena that I can get into solo and make decent money at. I still want to make games. I know it's hard work, but so is everything else. I figure I have some domain knowledge there, so it'll be easier to do than many other fields.

Oh, and my cat just took a dump.

Not really. I just wanted to throw that in to see if anyone was paying attention.

Nice to hear everything is going well :-)
Hope it will get even better! Looking forward for you first app. I'm also thinking about releasing some application but the lack of ideas just kills me.

Didn't get it with a cat.

Heh - that's ok. It's just that there are so many annoying blogs out there that are just "Awww, isn't my cat soooo cute?", plus "My cat just took a crap" is an inside joke here at my office, so I kinda combined the two.

I appreciate your anticipation of my app! It will be at least a few months before I can get enough coding done to release even a beta, especially because I have some serious rebalancing in my life to do. Believe me, though, every website I control will have news of it posted. :)

You're right, there's plenty of such blogs. Mine for example ;-))

You know it's nice to see someone follows his/her own dreams. I hope your application will be a hit :-)

I'm working right now on something - my master thesis project. I hope it will find few users. Wish me luck ;-)

Since you're not having a new baby I can only guess that maybe you're bringing a woman into your life to live and love with you and your wife? I can't imagine it being anything else.
