Zombies Like Music Too

(Press play. Do it.)

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

The summer heat finally hit and while Kim might love it, I preferred the spring weather we'd managed to keep until last week.

The heat, it kills me a little. Like I said to friend earlier, it makes me feel like I've died and been reanimated zombie-style. Everything within my skull turns to week old coleslaw, my body oozes clammy liquids through every pore, and all speech is reduced down to, "Bah....."

What do you do to beat the heat? How do you cope? I need tips. Preferably things that take very little energy or motivation. Because I was born with out those.

I'm taking the kids to the pool today. I'm going to float my zombie ass like a dead whale. It'll be glorious.

Yesterday I set my ringtone to Electric Avenue and it made me a bit nostalgic for some of the old music I listened to as a  young teen in the summer, so y'all get a bit of an oldies mix today. You're welcome.


When Lissy told me we were doing teen year music today for our playlist, I was stumped for a second, cause she picked to of my favorite band (Pixies & Breeders), but then bands started flooding my brain and my husband and I sat here and reminisced about concerts & snowboarding....we always had certain bands we would listen to on the way up to the mountain to get us pumped in the morning for a day of riding.....I love the way music can put you back in time!

XO Kim

Love the music!!!!
And I know what you mean about week old coleslaw - that's how I feel too. I can't handle it when it gets that hot!!!
I'm sorry that I don't have any amazing tips for you to beat the heat, I just suffer through it and hope that the next day will be a little cooler... :)

Well, I haven't figured out how to beat the heat either, but I've discovered how to ensure that the next day isn't as hot...

Plan to go to the outdoor pool... there will be clouds and wind.
