Backsliding

Practicing did not go well this week. I only managed one day out of seven, today. It is so difficult to find those "ten-minute" practice times with so much to do at the moment, and various family issues.

My cello has been patient, though, and stayed perfectly in tune all week, waiting for me to devote some time to it today.

I hate going to my lesson unprepared, yet it may be worse to skip a lesson. I am contemplating taking a break from lessons (not playing) for the summer, as I am just a wee bit frazzled. :-)

I know what you mean. I have the summer off because my teacher goes off to be faculty at a summer camp, and I'm really looking forward to it. What a change from a few years ago.

Some weeks are like that. Practice just doesn't happen.

A breather won't kill you, so long as you schedule the return. After this last concert series, I am taking two weeks off. No cello. Then I have some pieces I want to polish over the summer.

Hang in there!

"Frazzle" has a way of interrupting our lives sometimes. But then we appreciate things more when they return to normal.

Sometimes we just have to let the "wookie" win. I'm off games until June 2nd and then it will be hurry up and get ready for the chamber music workshop.

Thanks for the comforting words. I ended up missing my lesson today anyway, due to work overflow. I think a breather is in order.

Taking a break sounds good to me. That's what I intend to do - for a couple weeks, anyway.
