Rocki and Bruiser do their best to live through the renovation, but for my husband and I it's a bit harder to adjust. Not only are we living with the furniture from the family room and kitchen, but we have to manoeuver around the fridge and stove. And all of this is in the dining room along with the dining room furniture.
Throughout the tiling process, with saws and tile cutters going throughout the day, the boys have stayed pretty close and follow me like a shadow wherever I go. They eat less, drink less and sleep more. They don't chase each other, don't play with their toys and have even lost interest in their chewies. Sleeping seems to be their only source of comfort during this tumultuous time.
