Something has Changed

I missed several practices due to my work schedule at Macy's, and I was feeling so stressed about our chamber recital. It turned out that the recital was postponed due to my teacher's recent illness (she is better, thank the Lord).

I went to lesson today, and was amazed at how well I am playing now. It is as if something has changed, and I am just getting the hang of playing the cello. My son's senior recital is December 12th, and truthfully, I am not worried about it. I was deathly afraid of the chamber recital on the 28th of November, but this time, I am OK with it. I know we will do just fine (all of us!)

Great Lesson

I had a good lesson, and enjoyed playing Christmas Carol's with my teacher.

Great Chamber Rehersal

Yesterday was great! My lesson was super, and I made huge progress. I am still getting a little lost, but I was able to stick with the group, get back where I needed to be, and finish the piece properly. I am jazzed! Now to see if Macy's will give me those two Sunday's off? We will see...

Getting it -- Now just doing it?

Ok, so I am two for two on practice this week. I made the decision that I had to practice every day (as if I didn't already know that), but with working and some family tension issues, practice just went out the door. Ugh! I got back on the horse, did my due-diligence, and thankfully, I am not that off. Praying for a miracle -- our chamber recital is Nov. 28th!
