About That Piano

January 26, 2014

 Do you remember this post: The Time I Bought a Piano... ?  Well, I was able to pick the piano up from the reutilization building last week.  I was on pins and needles until D came home.  While it was still in the truck he played a few keys, and then played a few more, and then turned to me and said.... "not bad.  Good job, A."  Yay!!!!  I was so happy that something I was so excited about wasn't going to be a problem.
  I didn't get any pictures of the actual move but here are some before and after shots:

 





  The kids were excited about the piano but they thought the best part of the whole thing was the truck.  After we got the piano unloaded (with six guys bringing it in through the back door), they begged me to go for a ride.  I took them with me to return the tie-down straps and Sky rode most of the way with her head out the window.  Every few minutes she would turn to me and say, "We're going so fast, Mommy!" (since we were outside of "town" we were going between 20 and 25 miles an hour!). 
  I've started teaching myself to play piano and I love having a new challenge.  I have the Suzuki book but since I don't have a teacher, I'm using the first John Thompson book to teach myself the basics.  D has found some information on tuning online and is going to work on fixing the hammers and bringing the piano a little more into tune.  I think it'll be good for both of us to have this new project and I'm so, so glad this ended well!
