Sigh, I only get basic cable. I'll have to wait til a season is out on DVD and then rent it.

I think I mentioned long ago about how uncomfortable the chairs were at my last office. Truly awful basic, inexpensive office side chairs. I wouldn't even put them in a waiting room, let alone in a therapist office. Of course I also occasionally had to use a therapy room which had the chair that swallowed it's occupant. It was nearly impossible to get out of that one. Imagine what that felt like for a client who just wanted to get out of there. :)

My former T has two upright arm chairs, not overly stuffed or anything, I think with wooden arms. I never sat in one of the chairs, mainly because it would put me right next to the door with my back to it, and I don't like that position in a room. Instead, I always sat on the right end of the couch. It was pretty nondescript, reasonably comfortable, and in a good location. Initially I thought it was too far away, but I guess I got used to that.

I've thought about how I could practice out of my home someday, but I just can't work out logistically how it could be okay. The house isn't made for using separate entrances that well, unless I leave the garage door open and the clients come in through there to a "someday I'll get around to finishing it" basement office. I wouldn't like that, so I assume my clients wouldn't, either. But coming in the front door puts them right into the living room. We don't have any kind of entrance or foyer. And of course I live on a dead end street with little traffic, so if there were always different cars parked out there, it might seem sort of self-conscious for some. Hmmm, the other two entrances besides the front door are in the back of the house. Folks could park behind the house in the driveway there and come up the steps into the family room. Hmmm. But oh! If I could have a lovely sitting area in a well-done garden for days when the weather was nice...that would be ideal! :)

Great article. Lots to think about.
