Today Meatball went down early for his nap, as I mentioned, and I got about 45 minutes of time "to myself" before I needed to pick up The Boy from school. The den and the kitchen were total disasters, so I cleaned, and then I relaxed.
What I probably SHOULD have done is given up one or both of those activities in favor of PRACTICING.
But soon, I'll make a date with Herman the German.
For those who don't know, I'm not stepping out on Musical Daddy with some other guy. I play a 1979 Pöllman double bass, and the previous owner, who was my bass teacher, named him Herman.
