What’s On Your Nightstand?

Posted by in It's All About Me, Memes

Oprah says that your bedroom should be your sanctuary. A place to come to to relax and rejuvenate.

Yeah. Talk to me when you have kids, Oprah.

My bedroom hasn’t been a sanctuary since…well, ever. I mean, I do keep it neat and tidy, and free from clutter and all, but my nightstand is where all the crap goes. Everything that I do not get to during the day gets stacked there on the nightstand in the hope that I will be able to look at it at night, before my eyes start crossing in exhaustion. (i.e. not many books are getting read lately, if you know what I mean)

So I thought, MEME! MEME!

I don’t know if there is one out there like this, but just for kicks (okay, it’s NaBloPoMo) I thought it would be fun to see what everybody else has on theirs. And that is ON the nightstand, not IN it, okay? I really don’t need to know what is IN your nightstand any more than you need to know what is in mine, okay? (Even though, deep down, I am curious….)


My Nightstand

  1. Cordless phone and charger
  2. FSU Seminole coaster

  8. Dealing with Disappointment book
  9. Sensory Integration information pamphlet
  10. Netflix movie: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants that I’ve had since July (Yeah, that would be $40.00 that I’ve paid to get that movie that I’ve yet to watch)
  11. Elementary School Newspaper
  12. Nurturing Resilient Children book
  13. The Reach of a Chef book, recommended by Brett (who never reads anything I recommend, but anyway…)
  14. Life As We Knew It book, recommended by Allison, that I am dying to read (read? who has time to read?)
  15. Three Year Old: Friend or Enemy?, recommended by my preschool administrator (don’t tell her that I haven’t read it yet!)
  16. The Period Book (okay, so it’s time I had THAT talk with Allison
  17. Eyeglasses
  18. Basket to hold most of aforementioned crap
  19. Lamp

Okay, so now you know all of my Dirty Little Nightstand Secrets! What are yours?

I tag Aimee, Heather, Damselfly and Boogiemum, four of my NaBloPoMo friends, to carry on from here.  And even if I didn’t tag you, consider yourself tagged!  Just leave a link where we can see whatchyagot….
Nighty, night!


Today I am thankful for:

Time to go to the gym.  Never have enough time to work out these days!
