A tale about my workstation

As I write this words, I am sitting on a folding chair that is held together with electrical tape.  The consensus is the way I sit warped it to the point where a slight shift in body postion will cause it to collapse. It has nothing to do with my weight, because my husband is bigger than me, and somehow the chair doesn’t collapse. 

I am Jo-Hanna, destroyer of chairs.

My other alternative is to sit on the fitness ball. Why not? It’s actually confortable, My Gaiam catalog sells a product called a BalanceBall Chair, which basically consists of a fitness ball on a base. Ahh, but that’s the ticket. Without a base, the ball is just the equivalent of a too-short stool. An ergonomic situation, it is not.

I keep wondering if a new chair is a justifiable business expense.  It should be; after all, I would be more productive if I didn’t have to worry about my chair collapsing. Then again, would I have to prevent everybody else in my household from using it? Would I have to hang a sign on it reading, “SIT HERE ONLY IF YOU ARE WORKING, AND NO, VISITING Stuff on My Cat DOES NOT QUALIFY AS WORK”.

    Sorry for the delayed comment. Just found your blog. Do yourself a favor and invest in the best desk chair you can find. You’ll be sitting on it eight hours a day or more soon. Your back will thank you!!!
