Hi Cas. I need to be excused (again) for yesterday and the day before. I have a lovely case of "nu-moan-ya" and haven't managed to do much of anything other than sleep or hack my lungs out. I will try to work a bit at the keys today.

Thanks Cas! and me too! I've never had this before and it's nasty. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy!

My hubby has had it twice!! Second time round I had to give him injections at home every morning - that was stressful for both of us...and I'm not sure who felt worse about it!

Get well soon,

I was away on a business trip with no piano on 9/30 and 10/1.

I've had five other days recently where I missed playing, the most recent one being 10/3. Back on the wagon as of last night 10/4.

I'm off again, been off for at least 3 weeks maybe longer. There's been some playing but not anywhere near daily. I've been trying to get back at it and have actually managed to forget parts of things. I think I'm going to continue to slack off a bit so I'm off the list for this year.


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

I think we all have periods where we feel less up to maintaining daily practice/playing. Sometimes MOYD is an incentive, sometimes the opposite.

Hope you find your groove soon, whatever it may be!

Hi I'm off to my business trip to UK tonight.
I won't be back until next Saturday night.
Although I may have access to a piano, I doubt if I can practice.
I have meetings back to back and I presume having to go out to eat with the folks I work with. So please excuse me for 7 days. Thanks

Safe travels Farm Girl - I'll watch for your update! I hope you do find a place to play during the week, that would be great!

Cheryl, I've missed a lot of days. Sept. 29 through Oct.15 we were visiting my mother-in-law and returned home to find out my mom had a major set back and had to have surgery. While this is all going on, hubby and I both came down with the cold of the century which lasted over 2 weeks. I tried to practice, but it's difficult when I was coughing so hard and long that my eyes were watering and I couldn't see the music. I finally did get some practice in, but now we have to travel again to see my mother-in-law. I'm not sure how long we'll be away. We just need to see her as often as possible right now. My mom's doing OK for the time being. Needless to say, the Nov. recital is out for me. I hoping to be able to record something for the Christmas thread, though. Will keep you posted. Thanks!

CMohr, I'm so sorry to hear that both your mom and your mother-in-law have been so unwell. I'm glad your mom is doing ok now and hope that continues to be the case. It sounds like your MIL is in much worse condition, and that has to be very hard to bear.

I've dropped off for quite a while after coming back from a 5.5 week long Japan trip. I have been excused for that, but for some reason after coming back, I've been feeling unmotivated to practice and it's a struggle to restore my routine of practicing every day.

So far I've had 2 months of on and off practice but not every day. I hope I can get back to the everyday practice because I remember I was looking forward to the practice everyday.

Maybe the reason is because I have forgotten so much after my trip that I struggle more to play the songs I knew and that is unmotivating.

Hi Tim, I had a really long break this summer too and it was hard to get back into the swing of things. I didn't have my lessons to help me through some trouble spots and felt totally stalled out - I understand how discouraging it can be to feel you are not only not making progress but maybe even losing ground! Yikes!

I can only encourage you to be patient with yourself - maybe have a look at some pieces at lower levels and have fun playing them and then start working back to those you were playing just before your long break --- look at the weak spots and focus on those, find something small but important to "conquer" and get some inspiration back! Good luck!

Thanks casinitaly! Your encouragement helped me get back onto the piano again and working on those forgotten songs. I'm feeling a bit more confident after a nice session back at the piano.

It's still a challenge to get onto the piano but hopefully after a few more days of practice, the habit will come back and I'll feel incomplete without my daily piano practice. laugh

Hey Raptor, I'm so glad I helped! Sometimes all we need is a friendly ear and a gentle nudge eh? I too hope you get to that "I can't have a day without piano!!!" feeling. I don't mean for MOYD purposes,... but for your heart's pleasure!

I have missed quite a bit of practice lately and haven't been here to be accountable. I wish to be removed from the MOYD list for this year. The MOYD list starts again on January 1st, correct? If so, I will rejoin at that time. Thanks and good luck to everyone else.
