Well, it IS pretty major! But it doesn’t affect my upper body. So, in theory, I should be able to sit at the piano and do something!

Good luck dynamobt!
I know it's your lower body, but it is major surgery. Rest up all you need and don't rush back too soon.

And I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that it is SO important to be diligent about doing the PT exercises they will give you to do. Even more important than your piano practice, and that's saying a lot smile smile

Hello,
Please excuse me for 21 March to 11 April. I went on a cruise where I heard a lot of good music, but didn't play a note. (BTW, I like that cruise ships are sticking with live bands rather than the "karaoke" approach).
Thanks.

Patrick.

May I be excused for April 10? I had to work until really late, so I had to go directly to the theatre show I booked last September and arrived late (and much tired) at home.
For pure luck I had already put the ticket in my backpack!

Dear Everyone on MOYD and especially SwissMS for managing it -

I haven't joined, mainly because, especially at the beginning of my return to piano, I would have been the source of way more than my fair share of "please excuse me" and "back on the wagon" notices - but I did want to say thank you to all of you for letting me be a lurker on the thread and for giving me the ongoing inspiration to finish off a hard day with even 5 minutes at the piano. It really works, and in an interesting way, being motivated to do "just 5 minutes" has also led to better practice habits - "just 5 minutes" has evolved from "just 5 minutes, play through with mistakes" to "just 5 minutes, pick one spot and untangle it".

I can't claim to be 100% following the above, but I'm doing better, and thank you all for helping me make that happen!

Hello, I need to be excused from April 18-20. My son had surgery (he's ok) and I was at the hospital unable to practice. Back at it today! Thanks.

Please excuse me for April the 26th and 27th. I was massively stressed out and distracted by my dissertation deadline at Uni and, as much as I kept telling myself that I would get to the piano 'later', I'm afraid it just didn't happen on those days. Back at it today though. On the plus side, my dissertation was submitted in time. smile

You guys are so good at checking in! I joined last year, but for some reason felt the stress of checking in when I didn't play and the dishonesty if I didn't report it too much. Turns out seldom (actually never) does a day go by when I don't spend at least an hour at the piano, unless obligations away from home keep me from wake to sleep time, but nonetheless I haven't participated formally this year. Keep it up!

cmb13- It sounds like you are participating in MOYD is a stealth sort of way! When piano is a passion, it calls you to the bench naturally!

I missed 4/9 due to having company and the hubbub prevented me from practicing. But I made up for it the next day. 😎

Ugh. I missed Thursday May 3. I feel so guilty. But 90° in the Mid-Atlantic and I came home to a house 90° inside too. I got my playing in today in the morning before the heat ramped up again. Sure hope my a/c guy gets here tomorrow.
