Trying to dig my way out

 I am trying, I swear, to dig my way out of this funk but I am buried so deep I am not sure it isn't going to take a few more days. Above is my attempt to lose ourselves a little bit by looking at Halloween decorations and costumes at Christmas Tree Shops. We also checked out the critters at Petco as these kids(according to them) are going to have a  hamster if they have to hold a puppet show to earn their own money. It makes my heart ache. "Maybe" just comes out of my lips as I try to drag them away from the Pet store.
It may be hard to see but this art project is what comes out of a "NO TV" punishment. Olivia made the rockets and Moon in the center. Ava made the flag to place on the Moon and the outside papers are covered with the stars that are in the sky. I had to make the Earth below so Ava had a place to stick her trumpet fish that she insisted be a part of the display. Olivia has decided that the giant Gold star that is hanging above will be the Sun so we essentially have it all. Science lesson 101 this morning.
I may just have a designated NO TV day more often. Hopefully it won't be because of punishment as I am growing extremely tired of kids who don't listen.

I think it's the season change or something in the air. I gots da funk too. More fresh air and less thinking ahead (being in the moment) is helping.

Love love love the art!
