Thanks Mark.
Could you put me in the "Excused list" next week please ? I'm going to a music camp (strings only) and there won't be any piano...

I know it's too late to enter this year; I bought my first DP a week ago and yes, I've been practicing every day, but I'm excited to join next year! What fun!

I just keep plugging along whether I get the medal or not... it's more incentive to work for the medal, but I get the enjoyment of playing. And besides that, I'm learning pieces for a band I'm in:-)

Drop me this year.Too many missed days, all excusable, but not good enough for me. I'll try again next year when I expect conditions to improve.

Hi Mark,

I'm traveling to Lost Creek Ranch in Wyoming today, so I will need an excused absence for tomorrow and Saturday, unless the "rustic log cabin" we are staying in has a piano. crazy

Mark, I have a lot of travel coming up. Could you please put me on the excused list from September 17 through September 23 inclusive, then again from September 29 through October 7 inclusive, and again from December 9 through December 12 inclusive?

Thanks so much. Apart from travel days, I've managed to get in some bench time every day this year. I don't think I'd have been as diligent without this list. You know how it can be, all of a sudden it's 11:30 p.m., and you're thinking "Right, I know it's late. I know the noise by-law has kicked in. But I need to put in at least 15 minutes. I'll practice playing ppp, with the mute rail engaged."

17 days to go til the official deadline....(ok, personally I don't think I could stop even if I tried smile I hope to make it all the way to my 1st anniversary - I think it is really inspiring to be in the same boat with so many other enthusiasts (or should I say "addicts"? )

I'm sorry to inform you that I fell off the MOYD wagon yesterday cry . I had so much work and when I finished I was tired so went straight to bed, totally forgetting that I hadn't played that day. I would like to start again though, as of 24th September, if you'll have me blush

Hi Mark! Please don't hate me! Sorry haven't posted but tried to be good. Forgot ending date, Hope not too late. Did play at least few minutes almost every day, sometimes few minutes 2 or 3 times spaced out on busiest.

Adult lessons Sats 10 AM since 1/17/09, play again Sat evenings after work. Only misssed 2 lessons last yr and 4 this (working miniature shows/mother hospitalized). Play few hrs on Suns and Mons, days off, 1 hr mornings before work. Love my 1918 Ampico Chickering grand so much have trouble passing without playing a chord or two!

Almost lost my mother. Went into hospital Mar 28 with pneumonia and a coma on Mar 30. Made 2 hr 15 m trip to Lexington, OH in 1 hr 45m to help my dad until Apr 11. Missed 4 days spent in hospital but actually later on her little keyboard helped with stress. At 84 she is doing much better but not out of woods, permanent heart damage.

Missed Mar 13-14 and Aug 14-15 doing miniature shows (sole-own Molehill Miniatures dollhouse shop 14+ yrs). Caught up little playing 2 hrs with my sister Aug 16.

My tuner/restorer friend Cameron Dean, Kingsport, TN came Sep 13-15. Immediately after arriving 1 PM he tuned my Chickering and a bit on my 1919 Duo-Art Weber upright. Then we played for 5 hrs! Wonderful! Tues we worked on/tuned 1 of my classmate's and my teacher's piano. I was in there helping repair too! After working all day we played 2 hrs. Wed he worked on another classmate's piano and church's organ. Just before he left late that PM, we went to see a friend's Ebersole upright player he was giving Cameron but is now giving me to restore. Already learned so much from Cameron but this was over the top! Now just have to find room for the Ebersole!

So, even though have not been at the keyboard every day, have tried to make up for it on the days I do get to enjoy. Best RAGards, Linda

Thanks Mark for listening to my tale of whoa! Pun intended.

Really only missed about 9 days total, so I am proud of myself. But have to admit this forum did remind me to keep on the keys. Thanks again, even my teacher notices the difference.

Well I started playing piano in March of this year practiced pretty much every day except for when out of town on business. Never did think of signing up here. When is the sign up for 2011 MOYD?

Alas, Mark, I need to go on the excused list for Oct 30 and 31. There were half a dozen pianos on the cuise ship over the weekend, but they wouldn't unlock one to let me practice a bit. I jokingly reached in and played a few notes while one was being used for halloween photo opps, but I don't think I would call that "getting to the bench." It felt very weird to miss a day of practice.

Does the practise log website that Mark linked to in his OP no longer work?

It seemed helpful so I made an account, but I can't figure out how it works. I seems to me the site is broken. frown
