    The self-actualization, that is. Who can really tell what we're accomplishing compared to what we "could" do? Perhaps what we manage to do is achieved despite great odds against us. That's what I tell myself, anyway....

    We'll go with the portable, it's OK. We don't have enough cupboards to spare a section, and the floor area is pretty big. Besides, if we're lucky, we will move in another year or two. I am NOT fond of moving, but I would very much like to own instead of rent. Now there I go again--another want~!

    I'm glad you're doing better. I've had two bouts of vertigo, the first one very bad. Don't want a third, thank you very much. I hope yours is gone gone gone very soon.

    Heating pads are good for lots of ailments. I've also recently acquired a so-called "bed buddy," which is like a very long sock, closed off, with handles, full of rice. Heated in the microwave, it stays warm for a long time, and it does have a bit more resemblance to a small dog.

    Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.

      where. (meaning it's not on the table in front of me.)

        But it wasn't in an obvious place; I had to ask.

      •  You can also make your own using a pair of ladies (1+ / 0-)

        knee socks. Add rice till firm but still has some "give" and sew up the opening (you can even do this by hand if you don't have a machine-just reinforce the closing seam a few times). The cool thing about making your own is the funky socks you can find in the "teen" boutiques in the mall.

        Or you can even use the material sold as quilting fat quarters, but there you have to sew at least three sides (four looks better to my persnickety self), and I wouldn't reccommend that as a project for hand sewing.  Makes you think about our ancestors having to sew dresses and why poor people's clothes had less yardage, doesn't it?

        The sock rice bag can be a fun gift as well. But if you're not feeling crafty for whatever reason, I concur with peregrine kate. BB&B is a good source.  ;)
