Back to School Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Back to School Giveaway Hop, hosted by Review Wire Media!

This was kind of a last minute hop, which seems utterly apropos as back to school preparations seem to spring up on pretty much everyone at the last minute. And that’s true no matter how far in advance people know when the kids are going back to school. The ‘lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer’ feel like they’re going to last forever – until they’re abruptly over.

That it’s still more than hot enough at least in the Lower 48, to seem as if the dog days of the season are NEVER going to end makes that whole transition to Back to School seem just that much more sudden and even anti-seasonal.

But if you’re looking for a little something to help ease those hot and sultry dog days, or if you need a bit of a breather as you rush around with the after-the-last-minute school stuff that always crops up, here’s your chance for just a bit of a pick-me-up, courtesy of Reading Reality.

All the old timers used to say that if you get a cut or something during dog days it won’t heal so I think of that every year and try not to get hurt 🙂 Also another old wives tale they used to tell about dog days was that snakes were blind during these days.
