#SOL15: And so it begins . . .

A New Year

routine to do list

Preparation the night before:

Am I ready?



Writing utensils?

Other stuff?

What else?

Oh, yeah . . . Alarm set just in case.

Finally, to sleep.

keep calm and stay focused

Wide awake

Dim awareness

What am I supposed to remember?

What was that last thought before I fell to sleep?

Did I write it down?

Seriously . . .

Another hour until the alarm goes off

Quiet, peaceful

Low stress! (Oxymoron)

HAH!  My heart is beating with anticipation!



Too early?

Definitely early!

How will it go?

Check my list again


Smile on my face?

What emoticon or emoji best describes me?


A touch of trepidation . . .

And yet, also



Ready for fun

And yet, nervous – just a little!
