    do you eat in bed?

    Now that I have basically a room I am renting, and the downstairs area I can also use and share does not have a couch, I find I am snacking in bed. Oh wait, I pretty much always have done this but was better about it when I had a larger apartment to myself.

    What do you think about eating in bed?

    Any good stories of mishaps?

    I just spilled tea a couple times and boy does that stain!

    Hydrate if need be (summertime, no a/c), or candy on occasion. Otherwise, only when sick. (less movement, more recovery time)

    No, not really any eating in bed unless too sick to get up.

    Related - we don't eat much on the couch, either. Most eating is done at the table.

    Pretty much the same for me.

    No, I don't eat on my bed except when I'm sick and can't get up.

    Not really due to dislike of crumbs and such. I used to eat ice cream in bed when I was single, after coming home from a date. Not sure why I stopped!

    No eating in bed for me, either. I also hate eating on the couch, although I often wind up there because DH hates eating at the table--he always wants to eat while watching TV. If I didn't have a kitchen table, I'd eat at my home office desk. I don't like balancing plates, and it just feels like bad posture for eating.

    Part of my problem I realize is that I struggle with depression and being in bed seems to make me want to stay there and not face "the world" so I don't let myself do things like eat there because it makes it harder to leave, haha.

    Only when sick. If alone I eat in my chair and watch tv.
