I went home for lunch today, where I used my time to practice my musical instruments: trumpet and mandolin. It was quite an enjoyable musical way to spend the lunch hour. Today's trumpet practice, combined with the hour and a half of practice I did yesterday, has caused my lips to be quite numb. As far as the mandolin goes, I'm a little behind schedule with my practicing again this week. I hope to get some more time tonight and a good bit of time tomorrow to catch up. Also, I really should change my strings.
