The Desk Dilemma

You would think, with the amount of studying I do, that I would have a desk to contemplate the workload every day. Unfortunately, that is not the case. I do my studying on the couch.

It's not the perfect solution. The leg issues necessitate keeping My Stupid Leg (trademark pending) elevated as much as possible, but it means I'm trying to balance laptop and books on one table. Sitting at a desk before (if I had my own, that is) would not have been comfortable. Now, with the spread of the RSD and post op complications, I didn't think a solution would be feasible.

Until the other day.

I was out shopping and saw this:

Initially, I contemplated it for putting all my school stuff because there is just so much more of it this semester. Then, I thought, "Hey, maybe I could use that to prop up my leg under a desk while I'm studying!"

Until someone makes my dream item, a desk that is at the height of a chaise, this might be my work around. I think the next step is to get a tape measure out and see if I can fit one of those under a desk!

Just think, I could still put all my books and study materials in the thing, too!

Comfort plus storage - THAT is a win win situation. It's very pretty too!
