Unfortunately, his piano had a big "do not touch" sign on it so I refrained from the "sneak in at 5am" routine that I had in Vegas last year.

Oh, well. I was back on the bench a few hours after we returned to port this morning.

Consider yourself dinged! Sounds like you and Mrs. F had a lovely time! Welcome back!

I may have to miss some days this week owing to working hours on new client project. I think it's going to be work, sleep and eat only (although I hope not).

Good luck with the project - hope you don't miss any days! Let us know at the end of the week.

I'm going to be gone from May 10th to the 27th our youngest granddaughter is graduating. These will be the first days I've missed since the first of January. I really feel like I'm improving - so much so that I uprgraded from my 76 key keyboard to a digital piano! yippie

Thanks for helping me to keep on track.

We're all in it together, helping each other Lyn!
What a lovely reason to be away from your piano time! Congratulations to your granddaughter!
And congrats to you on your improvements and your upgrade!

Hiya Cas. Can I be excused for today and possibly tomorrow? Work has foobared my hands. I can barely hold my tea cup or move the mouse. (typing is heck even.) I need a few days to let them heal up. I think I just overdid it or something and my carpal tunnel is on the rampage.

Thanks... I'll post back when I can use them again.

Ciao BeccaBb,sorry to hear you're in pain. I hear you. I've had too much computer time this past week too and I feel it.
(not as much as you are though!!!)

I'll put you out today and tomorrow, just update me when you're back and I'll fill in any days as necessary.
Take care!

Thank you Cas. My hand is a bit better today (I can type!) so I'm going to practice lightly today. I will not overdo it. smile

Last night I got the worst cramp ever in my right hand. It lasted about an hour and then just trailed off.... it feels better today but still I will be cautious. So back to it!

Becca - glad you're feeling better, but it sounds like you really need to take it easy.

Maybe do some massage of your arm - play with only left hand for a few days, and really really cut back on how much time you spend at the piano. If you're feeling tension at all when you are playing try to focus on relaxing when you play.
Check out if there are adjustments you can make to keep your arm relaxed when working at the computer.
I realized well after I had a serious problem than 85% of my problem was from the computer and playing the piano aggravated the problem. Fixed the computer problem and then had to heal and fix the piano problem too.

Be careful!

In the end I only missed Saturday this week, owing to a conference, but made up time on other days.

Take it easy, Becca!

I missed almost all of last week the 4th to the 11th as I was sick with a nasty flu, but I am back now trying to make up for the lost practice time.

After all the work you've been putting in on your pieces, what a shame!!! Let me know when you get back... who knows? There may be a piano available to you at the hotel.

Have a good week.

We got home earlier than we had planned - didn't want to be on the road over the memorial day weekend.
So I'm back home and started playing yesterday.

Hi Cheryl,

Forgot that I needed to ask you to put me on the excused list for May 21 and 22. A quick post-recital jaunt to Disney and Universal didn't offer up any piano opportunities. But the practice routine is back now that I've retruned to the land of the Muggles.

Ah! I missed that you had also said Universal.

We just saw an add for "Harry Potter world" Europe on a dvd that we watched last night. It looks like loads of fun!
...but no pianos!

It's a beautiful day in Colorado...Friday June 1 Until June 9th I'll be in Washington DC...half Teaching Professor Conference and half vacation. I'm taking some music but doubt there will be a piano. I'll see if the rollup fits in my suitcase. I've downloaded a piano book on playing for pleasure to my Kindle so I can read something piano related while I'm out. I get back on Saturday and then take off again the next week to go to Pittsburgh for an Ethics conference. THEN I'm home for the summer.
