Puppy Nap Time

Between noon and two every afternoon the puppies take a nap. My children never had a scheduled nap, but the dogs do. Some days I use this time to run errands. Some days I do housework. Right now I'm just enjoying the quiet. I hear the cat licking his paws, and the thermostat on the dishwasher. The mail just came down the slot. Other times of my day are noisy, but between noon and two, it's not.

I have a lot of events crunched into the upcoming weeks. Next week I'll be at the middle school during puppy nap time, in the cafeteria with over 200 11-14 year-olds, and there won't be any quiet. But for now I can enjoy the hum of the refrigerator.
