I keep mine on top of the fridge. There's an outlet right there, so it can charge overnight. I just take it down when I use it in the mornings and sit at the kitchen table.

We are a one-car family, more out of necessity than choice, but I like knowing we are using fewer resources than we would if we had two cars. It's annoying at times, but quite manageable.

My son has done the same thing for months. He usually does it when he's focused on something. It sounds normal to me -- they've got to figure out how every part of them can move, you know?
