Contents of package 3

Cheap, Gadget

Um, I forgot that I was telling you about this.

Package 3 was a carpeted heating mat. I got Lloyd some hot feet! Cozy Toes! Roasty-toasty tootises! Heated heels! Enough!

I got a deal.

In a fit of frenzied buying at the beginning of the school year, I ordered a heating mat for Lloyd to keep at his computer desk. He’s right by the window and doesn’t want any part of my crazy heat-providing contraptions. “My monitor will keep me warm,” he insists. Well, I know his comfort level better than he does – I am a woman, after all – so I ordered something anyway.

A few weeks ago I thought, “Hey. Where’s that heated mat?” I checked my Amazon account and I had ordered it with an old credit card and the order had been canceled. Was that enough to make me stop and say, “Hey – maybe you don’t really need that”? Heck, no! I re-ordered it!

And here it is. Again, much like the sock-mocking, once he tried it, he loved it.

I have re-purposed the heating panel from the kotatsu disaster, too. Let’s be honest – I don’t watch t.v. anymore. I park myself on this stool and sit here until it’s time to go to bed. And now I have hot knees! Cozy calves! Shmoking shins! Seriously! Stop!

I'll never ever be cold!

    I’m always fascinated by how you secure things to other things. It’s never what I would do, but it always looks sturdy.

    A backless stool/chair? Doesn’t that hurt?

    Excellent ways to add that touch of heat to your house!!

    I personally don’t need such things…but I would love to have you brain storm some cooling ideas for me. Something slick like your hanging heating panel. I’ve tried hanging a huge block of ice, but it just doesn’t work.
