Frustrated aspiring piano player

My hands are long. I mean, really long, not just the fingers but the palms too. Growing up, people would tell me I had the hands of a piano player. I never took lessons, though. I kinda regret not having had the chance.

I don't know if I had what it took to learn to play an instrument such as that. I have, to this day, a lack of patience and a short attention span. However, I don't like to quit or give up, so maybe I could have done it.

Maybe someday I will follow my dream of learning the piano, even if it's only a few elementary lessons. In the meantime, I like to listen to music like this.

Playing over and over in my head: a song from my youth

I refrain from calling this an "oldie" because to me "oldies" are the songs from the 50's and before. Still, this is a song from the year I graduated high school, a little over 20 years ago.

Wow, am I really that old?

But my previous post doesn't quite...

... convey my feelings today. Have I been cooped up in here too long? Is this because I worked from home yesterday? I feel very isolated, very lonely, like I have lost touch with myself. I am feeling nostalgic too. I miss Puerto Rico, I haven't been there in over a year. I miss speaking Spanish at home. I miss my mom and the rest of my family. I miss a sense of community.

Moody Tuesday

It's almost 6 AM. I have been up for more than an hour. I am bored and I am restless. I am also not feeling well.

I told Paula about her grandpa on Saturday. She cried a little, but took it well.

Isabel is an absolute terror these days. She is so prone to fits, and she has quite a temper. Every time she gets mad she tries to hit us.

Gabe has also been moody at times. He is worried over money, about having enough business to cover all his expenses, business and personal. I get concerned about that at times too.

We are all moody, I guess. I know that last night I was feeling alternately angry and sad, and could not exactly pinpoint the reason why. Maybe I am hormonal, which is such a cliched thing to say, but like many cliches has an element of truth deep down.

I woke up at 5:30 this morning. I don't have much to say right now, I am still kinda sleepy. It takes me a while to fully wake up and ease into the day.

I'll go make myself some coffee now.

It's been a crazy busy week. And I am supposed to leave the office early today so Gabe and I can drive to Galveston for the weekend. We won a stay at a resort. The girls are joining us tomorrow, but tonight it's supposed to be just us. I have not packed. I may need to do some laundry. I have not even told my boss I have to take off early. There is SO MUCH TO DO, both at work and at home. I am kinda stretched out thin.
