However, concerning dogs . . . I do have some good news. It seems that both Pete and Phoenix have decided that they are just sick and tired of being shuffled from room to room in order to avoid the inevitable doggie brawls that they have become famous for. Over the past week or so, we have had several instances where Pete and Phoenix have (accidentally) found themselves in the same room - without incidence. Although, they are still avoiding each other, they seemed to have called a conditional truce. We are slowly working on reintroducing them - during times when things are somewhat calm around the house - which of course, isn't very often.
It actually got me to thinking; When the kids were little, I used to have afternoons set aside for "quiet time." Usually, during the hottest part of the day, we would all come inside or just take some time out for quiet activities; reading a book, watching a movie with a little snack, and sometimes, when I was very lucky, it would turn into nap time. I'm thinking of doing that again. Hmmmm . . . do you think it would work with teenagers? Probably not. *sigh*
