Another long Gap

Friday, June 8th, 2012

As is my habit, I’ve gone a long time without posting. ¬†Since I last posted, ¬†I’ve changed companies again, we had our baby girl, Meredith, and sent our oldest to High School.

I’m now working for Harmonic, on digital video servers, using Linux. ¬†So now I’m really becoming operating system agnostic. ¬†I started working for them in March 2011.

Meredith was born May 15th 2011 and we love her tons.  Its been tough having a toddler and a teenager at the same time.

It took about 6-8 months after Meredith was born before I got back to working on an app. ¬†I carved out 4 hours a week were I could work on it. ¬†I had hoped to complete my first app before I turned 40 in mid-March but didn’t quite make that deadline. ¬†but more about that in my next post.

I finally have a basic app working. ¬†Yeah me. ¬†Every time you click the button it increments the number after the Hello in the text box. ¬†You know… Hello 1, Hello 2, Hello 3…screen-shot-2011-01-21-at-82148-am.png

House for sale during a housing slump.

Monday, September 10th, 2007

We’ve had our house for sale for nearly 2 months and nothing is happening.¬† Nobody comes to look at the house.¬† Just nothing.¬† It is extremely frustrating.¬†¬† Probably just having expectations that are too high.¬† I don’t know where all the buyers went.¬†¬† Hope that¬†people start coming around soon.¬†

Past Due

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Yesterday was the baby’s due date.¬† Christy did have 4 or 5 contractions last night but they were irregular and short.¬† Soooo the waiting continues.¬†

No little one yet.

Monday, March 19th, 2007

We went to the Dr. today.¬† No progress.¬† So it looks like will be another week or two before the kid¬†makes his first showing.¬† Just hoping he doesn’t come on April 1st.¬† ¬†
