It’s apparently a good day for asking questions of the readership, so here’s another one: as SteelyKid has gotten older and more active, she’s become a real drain on productivity, especially at bedtime. Bedtime is now a process rather like a certain spoof book, extending well over an hour, and involving repeated requests to come back into her room for some silly reason or another. If I don’t respond quickly enough, she’ll work herself up into a real tantrum, so I pretty much need to stay upstairs in our bedroom until she’s asleep. Which means either I can’t get any work done, or I have to try to do work on my laptop in bed, which is wrecking my neck.
Thus, I’m looking to get some sort of lap desk type thing that would allow me to work on the computer in bed without doing myself harm. There are a nearly infinite variety if lap desks for sale out there, but it’s sort of hard to distinguish between them based only on web sites. Thus, if anybody has relevant experience and would like to recommend a solution for this, well, you know where the comments are.
