It's been forever (well, a couple months) since I've posted anything. I get busy, and writing on LJ is one of those things that tends to get forgotten. (I still read and comment occasionally though.)
Also, I dunno why, but I tend to hesitate to post good news. I'm over-careful about the idea that I might be bragging. But I can not do otherwise the way life is at the moment, so quick update:
Over the last couple of months I've been doing all the user interface coding for OmniFocus for the iPhone. Went to the Apple World Wide Developer Conference down in SF in June, where I met a bunch of cool people, drank a whole lot, and had an absolutely wonderful time. The aforementioned app I've been working on won an Apple Design Award. Had my yearly review at work a few weeks later - everyone (well almost) loves me. Got a giant raise. The iPhone app store opened up today. My app has been as high as #3 in the top sellers, but is currently down to #10. Lots of great reviews and happy people.
The kids are wonderful. We have them in daycare for 3 days a week over the summer and having Beth able to play with other kids her own age is wonderful. Miles is growing up fast, and is becoming a really thoughtful, nice kid. (With the occasional period of being a little stinker teasing his sister.)
Having the kids in daycare has been wonderful for Hollie and I too. We can do things like go out to lunch and actually talk. We're both really happy.
I'm making it to Seattle once every couple weeks or so these days, which is great for work, and also for seeing friends and being social.
Life is good.
