My Weakness Is Overwhelming

So it has been a while since I’ve practiced the saxophone with any consistency, or at all. My embouchure is so weak it makes me feel like my sax is leaking. I’m sure that if I took it to a repair shop, they would find nothing wrong with it.

I want to resume practicing regularly. However, it is so hard to find the time. For instance, I just played the horn for about 40 minutes (barely lasted that long), but it is 2:45 A.M. I’m sure my neighbors don’t appreciate it. I should be in bed trying to sleep. I’m not always wide awake at this time. However, I get home late from driving and it’s the only time left of my day.

I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to lose the ability to play the horn altogether. I’ve played nearly all my life. It has been a significant part of my life for a very long time, and I like doing it. Also, I still desire to play with other musicians.

So I am about to lie down and try to rest. I have to work tomorrow as usual. I’ve gotten myself into a situation where I need to work for some time. I need to pay off a few big-ticket items.

Until I get out of some of my debt, I don’t have time to devote to the saxophone.
