Tonight's piano lesson was cancelled, so I didn't get a chance to discuss my burnout with my teacher. The sun came out at times today, and it was warmer, but I still felt tired while practicing. Knight Ruppert is giving me a lot of trouble. The fingering is nonintuitive, and the technique is different than what I'm used to, so I have to practice really slowly to make sure I'm doing everything correctly. The other things I was working on didn't have the crispness I've had until the last couple of days.

On a somewhat more optimistic note, I was feeling good enough after practicing to do a bit of my taxes. I may work on them over several days, instead of at a couple of sittings, depending on how other things go.
