Okay, so this is my bedside table. I usually keep my mug on here. Because I am lazy. I get thirsty in the night. I must have water. So I just refill this mug every night before I go to bed. I like my mug a lot. My no talent self painted this mug on a date with Super Z. It gives me nice memories along with my H2O.
The clock is set an hour and 15 minutes fast and takes a beating every single morning.
The pictures are of Super Z when he was three weeks old and my Daddy. Two of my favorite guys. I used to have a picture of Randy here too, but Princess H stole it. I guess she likes her Daddy as much as I like mine.
That is a ponytail holder hanging on the picture of Z. I get hot at night as well as thirsty. You never know when I will have to get the hair off of my neck.
The wooden watermelon slice isn't usually there. Princess H came in while I was taking the picture and sat it there. I guess she thought it added a little something to the shot.
The magazines change by the week, but they are always there. Entertainment Weekly, Parents, and Newsweek are my favorites. Today it is Entertainment Weekly, featuring Heath Ledger (who was one of my favorite actors. I am very sad about his death. His daughter is exactly one week younger than Princess H. My heart is just broken at her loss.) and the LL Bean Spring catalogue.
The bottom of the stack of books is my journal, which I try to write in every night. It was a Christmas gift from one of my very good friends. The current books are the second book in the Outlander series and Dreamsongs, a collection of short stories by Gorge RR Martin. I am not sure if two books could be more different, but that is my style. I like to be reading at least two books at all times. I can pick up whichever one matches the mood that I am in.
And that, give or take a little clutter and a few pieces of wooden fruit, is my night table.
