Thank you for all of the replies.  I did some shopping today and looked 
at both the Microsoft and Logitech products.  The thing I didn't like 
about any of them was the size.  I currently have one of the Dell 
compact wired keyboards and one thing I really like is the small size.  
All of the wireless keyboards I looked at today were either the weird 
shaped curvy ones or had these goofy wrist rests.

I ended up buying a USB extension cable for $13 which will solve my 
problem for now.
