Out of the Recliner . . .

I'm back at work in the study. Since last October, I have worked in the recliner in the living room. Actually, I worked first in bed after having sinus surgery. I migrated into the recliner. Sitting in the recliner relieves my neck and back pain.

Hemingway did a lot of his writing from bed. Hmm . . . I don't like Hemingway's style of writing, so I suppose it's a good thing I got up and into the recliner.

So, if I love the recliner so much, why am I back in the study? The laptop is back in the shop. I don't know if a virus hit it or not. Some of my programs quit working, and I shut it down and took it straight to the shop.

So . . . now, I'm here in the study. This is day two. Yesterday, my neck started hurting after only a hour or two. I think I just need to get the monitor in the correct position. Hopefully, that will help the neck pain. I dragged another chair to the desk that has a higher back.

My back didn't hurt me until this morning when I woke up. Maybe it was from dragging the chair. Who knows? Anyway, I have a good place to work here in the study. Things are quieter. The little dog has a bed under the desk where he is now asleep instead of in my lap. In the recliner, he snuggled down to sleep under the lapdesk my laptop sat on. Now, he's not in my way when I need to shift positions. He's happier about that and so am I.

I ordered a desk chair with extra padding and lumbar support. It might turn out to be better than the recliner. Nah, I doubt it. Maybe, just maybe, it will be comfortable enough to keep me in the study.

In here I can see my calendar and see how far behind I am. And, I have a large bulletin board where I can stick up notes to tell myself how far behind I am.

I think I just talked myself into going back to the recliner! Just missing one thing--the laptop!

  1. Sometimes, we need to get out of the recliner and have some exercise outside. As a gamer, I now see its importance.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
