Re: [IP] Re: two or more meters/waking from lows

There's nothing "wrong" with carrying a meter from place to place.. but
after doing that for over 5 years I decided that having a second one that
has a permanent home in my pocketbook would work better for me.  I've left
home too many times, in the past, without my meter and that's not something
that I'm comfortable with.  I have three children (which with all the
hub-bub of getting them out the door is probably why I'd foregut to pack
something!)... and I like to test before I drive, before eating out, etc.  I
really need to have access to a meter at all times.  When I'm home it's not
a big deal because the one in my kitchen stays on the counter and gets used
constantly... guess I want one for upstairs in the bedroom because I'm too
lazy to bring the one up every night and down every morning.  Just my 2
