Drove to Atlanta this past weekend for a wedding. (Lovely weather and views of autumn foliage, but it was a LONG drive.) Anyway, I missed practice on Saturday (10/15). It was good to come home to my piano on Sunday evening.

I didn't practice or play on the 17th & 18th because of a migraine.


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

Aw, ouch ouch ouch....... that's nasty. Did you put some vitamin E cream or aloe vera on it? I hope you heal quickly.

I've had my days of practicing with just the left because I had too much tension in the right and had to rest it for a while....it was weeks actually ...very boring.

I'm BACK!! The breast surgery went well on Tuesday and the pathology report was negative meaning they got all the rogue cells. I'll have intensive radiation therapy next week and then should be cancer free.

Played my Christmas music this morning. Doing the happy dance...

Yeah I probably fell off like half a year, and these days I can't even find the motivation to play at all.

That's sounds very unhappy Quagles.
I hope you feel like hopping back on the wagon soon.
Wisebuff has a point - just play to entertain yourself and maybe you'll feel inspired.

I signed up for MOYD at the beginning of the year, but I had a couple of breaks during the year. I spent 10 weeks in the US in the summer, without a piano. We also did a couple of weekend trips where I wasn't able to play. At home, I have played at least a little everyday, and have 356 hours for the year so far. Do I still qualify or am I officially "off the wagon"?

I have to confess I have not touched a piano for three days. My hands and wrists have been too sore even for the computer.

Today I have practiced for 15 min. It felt good even though I screwed up terribly. At least I'm back on the wagon.

I'm back home from a stressful trip...I did, at the last minute, decide to take my keyboard with. I'm glad I did - I had some pretty big chunks of time to myself and got to practice. My little problem now is that my "piece 'o junk" keyboard now has four keys that don't sound at all. Time for a new one, Santa! wink Anyway, I only missed one day at the piano (keyboard) - yesterday, Oct. 25th, because of tons of travel and exhaustion.


Think less - play more

I have a question, what if I don't see my name on the list and I joined on time, without missing any days? I hope its not because I don't constantly post. With an extremely busy lifestyle, I try my best to post at least every month.

Hi Banon07 - no, you don't have to report in, or update if you are playing regularly.

I remember that you registered - and I checked the 1st page of this thread.
I see I have you as a late register of 9 April - what happened is that your name is on the same line as another member, so yours doesn't stand out.Sorry about that!!!


If I've made a mistake and you joined in January just let me know and I'll correct it!

Hi All! Not posted as planned but have been playing at least a few minutes every day. Most mornings manage an hour or more before work and often play again some evenings. On Sundays and Mondays, off days, play for several hours if not running errands.

I too like Little_Blue_Engine suffer from migraines and hate to say that I missed my day off 10/24 due to one. Did play a few notes and Penny our youngest cat (2yr tabby) sat on the bench next to me instead of behind the music rest as usual. She played a few too. Does that count? Actually, she is pretty good on her own but you never know when she will be in the mood, usually at 3:30 AM. crazy

Worked on Fur Elise along with Cory Hall, "BachScholar" on Youtube. Able to play some of it actually faster but can match from memory note for note except for the 2 1/2 line B section (fast part) and A-C-E section. Can play, but slower. So, I have been practicing.

My teacher is very pleased with my progress. I even adlibbed an additional ending and, despite the fact he is rather strict about playing major pieces as written, he said, "I think Mozart would have really approved of that!" Thought you would enjoy the inside joke. grin

Hi.

I missed practice of any kind yesterday. I
had company from early on until 2 am in the morning. Although I did enjoy the out of town company I found myself longing for even 5 minutes at the piano.

Back at the piano this AM. Thank you God

I was too scared from all the ghouls & goblins to practice tonight ...

... sigh. We had people over for dinner and then, by the time I had taken the boy out treak & treating it was way too late. It's the first time I've been home this year, with my piano, and not managed any practice.

Normal service will be resumed tomorrow and I'll see if I can sneak a few extra minutes in!! smile

I signed up in April...and by "I signed up on time" I meant before Septemeber 30th smile I think that's where I was a bit confused, I signed on late but before the cut off date!

Yup! I had mine out a couple of weeks ago (but I used the Silent feature so no one would know I was playing Christmas music before Halloween!)
