Day 296- Michigan Football

Michigan football is more than just football to me. 

Today I will get together with family and friends and relive more than twenty years of shiny, sparkly memories.  We will eat, drink, dance, cheer, and be merry.  We'll laugh and high five and simply enjoy the fact that we are in the same place at the same time.

There are many times in life, I must admit, when I wish I was somewhere else.  I want to be on a beach or reunited with my family and buddies or at home with my dog and my husband.  I daydream sometimes about what I would be doing if I could be doing anything I want.

These daydreams often lead me to the Big House on a cool fall day.  I'm sitting or standing in my seat just before a game begins, with Tom on one side of me and my parents on the other.  I feel little wolverines dancing around in my stomach, as if I will be the one running out onto the field.  The anticipation is almost more than I can bear.  It is magnified once the music is pumped into the stadium and the highlight intro video is played.  At that moment, there is no place else in the world I would rather be.

I will be in my happy place today :).

To be continued...

Thank you, Michigan football, you made my day.
