I started just sleeping or wasting time on Pinterest when I had free time, but was still confused about my ongoing grumpiness until I realized that I wasn’t creating, and I missed and needed it.
All those fun sheet dresses I made (mostly) still fit before I got pregnant again, but they’re really not practical as a parent of a toddler. Knit headbands for children fit serenely on their heads and stay unblemished. So many of my life tasks were reversible (baby needs to eat again! dishes need to be washed again! toys need to be picked up again! papers need to be graded again!) that I felt like I was in the Red Queen’s race, running and running just to stay in the same place (or actually fall behind, TBH).

After all of that stressful rushing (but still exciting, as I thrive on the last-minute push before a deadline), I decided that I was going to make sure that the next time I costumed a play, I would be much more methodical about organizing my time and tasks so as to reduce the stress for both me and my family.
