Last week I sloughed work. I was supposed to teach 7 piano lessons last Wednesday, then I was done for the week. 2 called and asked to move them up to earlier in the week. A family of 3 had an emergency and had to leave town unexpectedly, then at the last minute another one had to postpone for a week. That left me with only 1 lesson. My kids were starting to not feel well, and I really didn’t want to drive across town for just 1 lesson. I normally would, but last week I just really wanted to be done and focus on my kids. I cancelled the lesson. The only odd thing is I had no guilt at all.
This week we found out that our family has had strep throat. That Wednesday was the day we were most contagious. I think it was great that I avoided passing it on to so many people, and I know that last student really appreciated not sharing!
