I feel like I'm at the play-off game, or the championship game even, and they've got the inflatable tunnel set up, the smoke going, the crowd roaring, the beer flowing, the fans waving and the game is about to start. I LOVE FOOTBALL. My kids don't understand why they have to turn off their XBOX NOW so that I can watch that “stupid hoopla introduction run down the tunnel stuff” instead of them finishing a level. Well, it's because I WANT TO SEE IT.
Today feels almost like that. We're getting so close to the start of the biggest blogging event of the year, and today, we're sorta announcing the players' positions. We know the players, since we do have that ever growing list, but we don't quite know what they've got planned.
THAT'S WHY IT'S REVEAL YOUR THEME DAY! It's the awesome idea of Mina Lobo, one of the members of "Team Damyanti", and co-hosted by David Macaulay. Of course, since I am Miss Hop-on-the-Nearest-Blog-Hop Train, here I am, already aboard.
My theme for the 2013 A to Z Challenge is “Adventures in America” : these are the continuing sagas of a Swedish immigrant during her first year as an American. She boldly went where she'd never gone before...please come along on her journey.
Each day I'll have a story from my first year in America (Summer 1974-1975) and most likely some embarrassing picture. The Nutritionist (my mother for you new folks) is also the Momarazzi, and there is plenty of documentation of my life...
As I started writing these, I started thinking about how I would have felt moving my kids across the world in the middle of their childhood...so I might add some “if I were my mother” stuff in as well...that should keep her and The Swede reading!
As a special lead in to the series, The Swede, my Dad, will be writing three prequel posts to introduce himself and my mom and tell their love story, giving the set-up for why we're a trans-Atlantic family, and why we even moved here in the first place. Don't miss 3/27, 3/28, and 3/29 when he's my guest author.
