This morning actually wasn’t too bad and I got a chance to catch up on all my e-mails from the weekend when I wasn’t in my office and our e-mail server was down. After lunch which I didn’t eat – I sat in my office and stitched because I just wasn’t hungry because of the stress that started shortly before lunch – the real “fun” began. We worked on an issue and at 3 I took a break and went and practiced for a couple of hours. It only amounted to about 50-60 minutes of playing with all my little breaks, but I did do 6-7 minutes of playing before a break instead of my usual 5 so that’s a good thing! And I added partial number 5 today so that’s another good thing. My lower partials sounded really strong at the beginning, but then as my chops got tired things went down hill. But I am defitinely making progress and I’m very happy about that.
After I got my horn put away and was planning on heading to dinner, that’s when the major stress hit. We finally came up with a solution to the problem so at least things are taken care of for now. I finally left for chow about 1845 and even then I wasn’t really hungry. But since I have to walk past the chow hall to get home I decided to stop in and get some food. I had a grilled cheese, peas with mushrooms, and chocolate pudding. And good company while eating. Once home, I grabbed a shower and changed into a borrowed pair of PT shorts. In all the “fun” today, I forgot that I needed to pick up my laundry by 1900 so I could have shorts. At least I have a friend who wears the same size PTs and she didn’t mind me borrowing shorts. I stitched some and I chatted with Ryan and other friends and now I’m heading to bed.
