How we survive in Arizona in the summer months.
It’s that time of the year. The weather has officially hit over 100 degrees. Many people are quick to point out that, while it’s hot, at least it’s not humid. There’s truth to that. Unless it’s August and the monsoon season. Then it’s hot and muggy.
But hot is hot. Plus, I have flashbacks when I was 8 months pregnant during the month of August. It was awful.
Once the summer months – and the heat – arrives here in Tucson (and Phoenix), there’s basically two things to do: (1) stay indoors as much as possible and/or (2) enjoy water activities that involve splash pads, pools and/or waterparks.
We have a pool in our backyard, so that’s usually where we hang out.
Maintaining a pool year round isn’t fun, but I will say it comes in handy during the summer months. So with that, I hope everyone is able to keep cool at the pool.
In the meantime, I was ready for a haircut for the summer.
While I like the thought of long hair, I’ve finally resolved myself to the fact that I look better with short hair. It doesn’t feel as heavy around my face, plus I can still pull the sides back. So it’s a keeper.
