Music Mondays: Recovery Edition

As mentioned, I traveled last week. The drive to my parents' house was rain and fog laden. Friday afternoon and evening saw tornadoes tearing across the Middle Tennessee area. Lucky for us, we were below the path of the storm and never had to take cover in the closet. (A good thing. Because three adults and two cats in a closet under the stairs? Cramped is an understatement.)

The weather aside, the trip was a good break and reprieve from my day-in-day-out. (And I've decided I'm going to have to shake up my schedule a little more. Maybe spend one day out of the week working/writing in a different place. I'll have to scope out some cafes.)

Though I was happy to get home again. And very pleased with myself that I'd included today in my vacation time as it gives me a chance to recover from the drive and get myself sorted out and ready for the upcoming work week and...and those errands I've been putting off for months.

Here's some of today's "travel recovery" music. 

1. Doctor Who (theme) 2005-2007
2. Bad Romance - 30 Seconds to Mars (cover)
3. A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
4. Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) - Florence and the Machine
5. Lucky - Bif Naked

Share your "sorting yourself out"/"getting back in the groove" music in the comments.

Just hopped over from Make a Friend Monday...10,000 Maniacs, Coldplay, and the Killers seem to get me on the right track (or anything else that is not country that I can sing along to!)

Hi! So nice of you to offer techno advice at my place! I noticed in your profile you are an instructional designer and I am too! I also write for fun too.

I will be kicking up my feet and taking a look around.

Love 10,000 Maniacs. And Coldplay's starting to hit my list more. Good picks.

Not long ago, I was wondering if/when I'd come across another IDer in the writing blogosphere (as the ones I've known seem to gravitate toward creative writing).

Lately, it seems as if I'm more social networking guru for my company; granted, that allows me to spend more time blog browsing, so....

Welcome aboard.

funny, was just thinking the same thing, I need to shake things up a bit and write somewhere else besides on this old futon couch. Starbucks? the library? too intense. But yes, some cafe...thanks for linking up this weds.

 Thanks for dropping back by.

It's really hard finding a new writing space. I had a few before I moved, but I was smack in the middle of a college town then, so coffee shops and bookstore cafes were pretty common and no one looked askance at you for parking yourself, with laptop, at a table for a few hours.
