The 40-Year-Old Music Virgin

Day 121: Life gets in the way sometimes...

Rate this Entry
My hiatus is officially over and it's time for an update.

Since my last post I:
  1. moved my family out of one house and into another,
  2. had a serious bout of bronchitis and pneumonia,
  3. was promoted at work,
  4. turned 40,
  5. lost over 25 pounds (including 1.5" from my neck, 2" from my chest and 4" off my waist),
  6. and suffered a ligament injury to the thumb on my fret hand, which still hasn't fully healed.

Even if I had the time or inclination to play guitar, I'm not sure I could have. It's been over three months and I've made ZERO progress toward becoming a Guitar Chef. As you know, ZERO progress over an extended period of time is ultimately a set back. So I will restart my lesson plan from scratch.

<insert long sigh to signal self pity>

Anyways, the hiatus is over because I've finally decided it's over. I can't just want this to happen. I have to will it to happen.

Here we go (again)!
