Wacky Wednesday at the Woos





 It has begun - do our eyes tell you how unhappy we all are?


Add caption

Our soft white carpet is gone.  There is only a sofa, table, and TV in this room, and no furniture anywhere else on the first floor.  At least our crates and beds are still here, although Mom says not for long.  There are no countertops, no sinks, no cooktop - yikes!!!  The painters start prepping tomorrow through Saturday.  New countertops hopefully on Friday.  We get to stay here until Monday, but then the actual painting begins.  The painters say we can't be here then.  Even Mom and Dad have to go somewhere else to stay.


Who needs a kitchen table anyway?



We probably won't be posting much, and we are so sorry we haven't been commenting much.  Mom is pretty stressed out with all that is going on.  And she tells us this is just the beginning - could take a month to complete:(  There is lots more to be done, new tile backsplash, newly sanded and stained floors, new bathroom floor, and new carpets - yep, another white-ish one.  We did hear Mom tell Dad she is ready to call the whole thing off already and we are only two days into it.

Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

P.S. - for those of you worried about Phantom, he is probably going to stay with Mom and Dad wherever they end up when they can't be at home.

We hope the month passes quickly!

I will cross my paws for your project and I hope ...no: I know it will be much better than our redecoration-adventures.

We hope by some miracle it takes less time than they say. Renovations are never fun.

Just keep thinking how nice your new everythings will be! It's no fun going through it, but I know you'll manage.

A WHOLE MONTH??? Like 30 SLEEPS???
It will be GORGEOUS when finished though.

Marg said...

Oh we are so glad that Phantom gets to stay with the Mom and Dad. That is good news. Wow, that sounds like a lot of work. A month is a long time but it will look great when it gets done. Take care.

Woo that's a big project, but I am sure you all will love it when it's finished. We'll keep our fingers crossed for a smooth no complications month.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Glad Phantom will get to stay with your parents. We are in the midst of having new siding put on our house, the cats are hiding, Fenris is barking at everyone and Tui just sleeps through it all.

Hope your house is put back together soon, we know your Mom will love it once it is and we bet you will too.

Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

It will all look very posh when it is finished. Hope you all have a nice vacation while the house is painted.
How is your mom's back, hope it is feeling okay.

That doesn't sound like fun but it'll be so nice when it's all over. We're glad Phantom gets to stay with Mom and Dad though! Hope it all goes smoothly!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

HUGE undertaking!! I don't envy you guys at all!!!

Jo's World said...

I don't worry about Phantom because he lives with his Mom and Dad who loves him a whole bunch. They will take good care of him. The other two kids can go to nursery school maybe. Mom will come and visit them, I am sure.
We would too, if we could.

Good luck everybuddy,

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

Mitch and Molly said...

We hope you guys will be able to survive the changes. We can't wait to see the results! We're sure that it will be well worth the wait!

Love ya lots♥

oh...house remodel is no fun for the furramily members...nope...not one teeny tiny bit...purrrs for my good furriend Phantom

Elyse and Riley said...

Oh man, having a house remodel go on is always stressful for dogs and humans alike! (And yep, 2 days into it is about the time I would be saying, "Oh, let's just forget the whole thing and call it off," as well!).

Hope it goes quicker than expected and that there aren't many (well, ANY would be nice) hitches. You poor pups look so sad!

Nola said...

Paws crossed for a smooth reno! I had fun when we did our house last year, but we did the whole thing ourselves so we didn't have to go anywhere.

sagechronicles said...

That's a massive re-do, but I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end. The Woos will not be happy, but I know Phantom will love being with Mom and Dad.

KB Bear said...

Hang in there, my friends. It will be worth it. And, I am so relieved about Phantom.

I've just realized the tough part of having a dog who can't stay with anyone else (in my case, that's Shyla - she'd dissolve into a puddle). My Dad is having health issues, and there's no way for both me and my husband to go visit him at the same time.

I'm so glad that Phantom will be with the Momster and the Dad!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

wow- big changes are happening at your house!
no need to be sorrys- we understand and will always be here- and sending love to all of you.!

What Remains Now said...

Can't wait to see everything when it's done. You are brave to take all this on. Stay sane and we'll see you when it's all over.

Yikes! That sounds like plenty of stress to go around for everyone! I hope it's all over soon!

Such a change of routine! So much stress! We send our strongest White Dog woos of comfort, calm and strength to get each of you through this. Keep your eyes on the horizon...when everything is done and looks WONDERFUL! Pack Pals...put this in the book under Major Treats Owed! Feel our love.

Sweepy said...

Oh-oh, one of those stressful human projects that bogs our schedules. Methinks you guys better check into a spa dogtel for a month and charge it to the peeps!

YD, sometimes with ♥June and ♥Angel Samantha said...

That's no fun! Maybe woos should come here to stay. That will be fun!
Good luck to woos and woos pawrents.

I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end, but I hope it doesn't cause too much stress for you all xx

We're glad Phantom is staying with Mom and Dad. We know it's stressful but we also know it will be worth it when it's done.

We'll miss you though..........

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Oh goodness! What a lot of hoopla. We are going to have to catch up on posts so we can find out why your house is all messed up. At any rate, Ciara looks like she's still the queen on her bed.

FiveSibesMom said...

Oh my...I totally feel for your mom...while it will be beautiful when done...it's the getting there that really stinks! You guys do look very displeased...but just think...you'll have lots of new things to investigate when it's all done! Hugs to you and a big one for Mom!

Cocoa and Melon said...

Hello OP Pack, wow, what a lot going on! We are glad you still have your beds! And we are glad that Phantom will be staying with Momster, not just for him but for her too! It is too bad you guys have to go to the kennel, but maybe the hoomans can take this opportunity for a mini-holiday?

Life with Wrigs said...

Wouldn't it be nice if we could just wave a magic wand and have renovations happen instantly and without stress? Good luck, everyone! Try to focus on how great it will be when it's finished. Glad Phantom will stay with your mom and dad. Hope you have lots of treats to help you get through the next month!

Well it sounds like a lot of work, but time fly's you will soon be back mucking it up.
We did not say before anything about Thunder. We got a shock we always took a good look at Phantom we were worried about him. We have looked at Thunders life and we got upset, our hearts go out to you.
