Work Area 137


Here is my “desk’ area where my hubby and I work side by side. We can see our big screen TV from where we are sitting. I also have a treadmill in front of me to remind me to get up and mover around at least every hour or I will be consumed by the computer and never move. Whenever he has a computer problem, he just has to poke me from the side. He tells people that I’m his “network administrator!”
