Oh, ho ho. I have so much in common with ALL of you guys!!
Mamapadawan: I'm the same. I have a proper desk, but the web connection isn't so good, plus here on the couch I can see all around - Queen of the Living Room.
And, like you, there is never time to get around the improving the signal. Sigh.
And Mandy: the dog bed, huh? Wow, that IS bad!!
Lylah, I will try your great suggestion with an old keyboard. I did get her a toy phone, hoping she would punch the buttons on that, but - eh - she'll only play with it for a minute or two at a time.
Anyway, I think I'm just going to have to work more in the evenings, which I was hoping I would not have to do.
