The home office is changing. We recently got a wireless connection in our home (I know, a few years behind the curve). Since we went wireless, we've been writing on the couch or in a chair...wherever the mood strikes us. Our "moveable office" has freed us from prior space constraints, so much that one of our goals for the Fall Cure has been to pare down our home office into just a few file cabinets and a shelf, repurposing our old work space into a guest room.
Keeping a movable office also forces us to get rid of old files and keep our papers organized.
