The items on my nightstand are a constant, and I know you said 10, but this small space holds things I value dearly, (and some I need to survive!) so I ignored your suggestion and made sure nothing felt left out😉😬❤️
  1. This is truly what it looks like.
    Static
    Everyday, with little to no variation.
  2. My journal.
    Static
    My communication with my daughter.
  3. Books.
    Static
    Lots and lots of books. I read one, I buy three.
  4. Reading glasses.
    Static
    Because, over 50.
  5. My phone.
    It's what I do before bed (thanks li.st, Amazon, EBay..) but it's also my alarm. (No pic, as it is also my camera!)
  6. Burts Bees lip balm.
    Static
    I have several tubes of different balm in the drawer, but I usually resort to the old standby.
  7. A candle and matches.

    This one was made by a friend and it was the champagne we drank on Courtnie's birthday.
  8. Hand lotion.
    Static
    Almost always, this one.
  9. Ambien.
    Static
    Now a necessity. I'm fine with it.
  10. This doll.
    Static
    A gift given to me long ago from an old/former friend, who went off the deep end a while back. It reminds me of better times.
  11. This statue.
    Static
    A gift from last year. I hid it for the first six months, but I pulled it from the box and there it sits.
  12. My Hydro Flask.
    Static
    I spill it a good deal of the time, but there it stays.
  13. This..
    Static
    It's been here as long as I can remember. (It's also why I spill..but now I've given up even trying to get the flask on it) ( ◠‿◠ )
  14. Ear plugs.
