Piano, Holidays and the like

I haven’t posted in a while but thought I’d check in real quick to post a few things. On December 1st we bought a decent digital piano (Casio) from Costco. It’s the full 88 key keyboard with weighted hammer action keys, plus all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a┬ásynthesizer. Katrina plays the piano quite well but I’ve never learned. We picked up some books to teach both me and the kids and we’re all learning. So far I have been able to learn several new songs with two hands and I’m learning to read music for the first time. I’m terribly slow at it but I’m getting there. Katrina is quite patient and I’m hoping to get to the point where I can become creative with it and hopefully play a few hymns.

I have to admit, I’m a quitter. I often get excited about learning something or doing something that requires a lot of commitment and I think it’s great and then I get bored of it or unmotivated or distracted after a few days or weeks (or sometimes even months) and I give it up. For example, running, exercising, learning Spanish, running, exercising, dieting, learning javascript, running and exercising. To name a few. We’ll see how this endeavor goes. So far so good. last night I played (very slowly) the right hand of I am a Child of God a few times. It’s fun to be able to read and play the notes and know what they mean. It’s all been gobblygook until now.

Christmas was awesome. The kids had a lot of fun and loved their gifts so Katrina and I loved Christmas. We spent it with family and took lots of pictures. They’re on Facebook so I may be too lazy to post here. But who knows.

Work is going well. The company continues to grow each month and though we’re not rolling in the billions of dollars we are in the millions (as a company) so that’s cool. I expect things will pick up even faster this coming year and I’m really looking forward to it.

There’s plenty more to talk about but I have a Sunday School email blast to send out so I’m going to do that now. My 31 subscribers are really counting on me, ya know? Peace out.
