Well, being a bedrest in the hospital means I eat almost all my meals in bed. It's very strange for me. I did eat one meal in the "comfy chair" in my room, but that was more work than it was worth. So I just sit cross legged on my bed, and eat my meals ... and try very hard not to get crumbs everywhere or spill things on my sheets.
Most of the time, my over-the-bed rolling table is covered in my laptop, books, meds, etc. But I am working to get it cleaned off more, so I can utitlize it for eating my meals ... At least that way I would be "at a table" even if I am still in bed.
