I could not find my newest pair of glasses. They were not on my side of the dresser, nor in my catch-all dresser drawer. They were not in my bag. They were not on my face, either. Though, I have found them there before.
So, I needed to excavate my nightstand to see if they slipped in there some how.
I do this every now and then.
On my nightstand:
Phone, lamp, clock-radio, a box of Kleenex, a Tinker Bell mug of water on a coaster.
My aunt Carol's address.
Receipts for: a Lily Allen CD, a coffee, two for art supplies, and one for a surgical procedure.
A dime, a little bit of rubbery plastic.
A Tinker Bell pin, a stuffed fairy named Snow, two pairs of hand-knit socks--one pair has never been worn.
Two pens, my blue-framed glasses (not the ones I was looking for), my half-rimmed glasses (the ones I WAS looking for!)
Scraps of yarn, a Tinker Bell bucket of yarn including three skeins of Politically Incorrect yarn.
A framed wallet-sized picture of my goddaughter from about 5 years ago.
Then, the stack of books:
