The Back to School ABCs. Or Blues. Whatever.

re·run \ˈrē-ˌrən\

the act or action or an instance of rerunning, repetition; especially : a movie or television show that is rerun

Well, no. Technically, we are neither a movie nor a television show. Ooh, but we so SHOULD be, huh? That would be awesome. I might go make a few calls. Maybe to Spielberg … or Scorcese. And we’ll need a screen writer! And a musical composer! AND A KEY GRIP! And … and …. But wait, I’m in the middle of writing a blog post. Damn.
I’m pretty bogged down today. Not only does my boy, my oldest, start high school (yes, I said HIGH SCHOOL) this Friday, but I’ve also got a sick little girl. And it’s only her fourth day of school. Here’s hoping she gets better very soon and doesn’t germ up her brother who I fear now can’t miss a day of school for the next five years. (Explanation: High school often starts in 8th grade in my weird corner of the world, the land of drive-thru daiquiri shops where we call counties “parishes” and inspection stickers “brake tags.”)
And if I’m not sad enough with this change, I am now also stressed about how much I have left to do. And no time to do it. So we’re rerunning an old ODNT “episode” today. It seems only fitting. Last year, I wrote a post called the Back to School ABCs. (I’m actually kinda proud of this one. Please click it.) And then I gave it an extreme makeover for a little contest and won a thousand dollars with it.
Anyway, I think that it bares repeating. Because it’s that time of year again. And because, well, I’m a little blue today. And who among us can’t use a laugh? (Please tell me it made you laugh.)
I have to go. The cat just puked. Four times.


EXTREME MAKEOVER EDITION of my ‘Back to School ABCs’ Post

Hey, will you guys please do me a favor? If you like my Brite book below, please Like it! Tweet it! Facebook it! Pin it! Email it! And Share it! 
But you need to be ON THE BRITELY SITE for it to count! 
Dude, there is actual MONEY involved!

Remember The Back to School ABCs I posted a few days ago? Well, I just did a little something creative with it … thanks to the good people at the Britely company. (Shameless plug.) It’s a cool way to add some color to my otherwise monochromatic (meaning GREEN!) posts. Yes, I know my blog needs a new look … or at least a little renovating here and there. Anyone want to go curtain and tile shopping with me? I’ll drive. This place is a mess.

Anyway, please take a look. This whole Brite bookmaking process was a lot of fun. And my post is now much more visually appealing and concise. … I know. You don’t believe me at all. Me? Concise? … You’ll see. CLICK ON THE IMAGE BELOW TO SEE THE EXTREME MAKEOVER. Right now. What the hell else are you doing? Do it for me. And because … because … it will help save the planet!

What do you mean what do I mean? I AM being serious. …. Fine. You really need me to explain HOW? … Well … because if you’re reading my BRITE … then you’re NOT reading a book or a magazine … that are both made of PAPER … which comes from what? Duh. TREES! … So, the Earth? She is saved. And it’s ALL because you read my Brite. That’s all you have to do.

See. I knew I could get us there. Enjoy!
