Back to Me

I’ve been very lax in blogging and doing pretty much anything creative lately, and it’s having a toll on my mood. I’ve been struggling with depression and have found that I’m easily irritated and frustrated.

However, I managed to find some downtime yesterday and instead of working on the laundry, I started designing a phone case for my new phone (thank you tax rebate), and the longer I worked on it, the more I felt myself unwind.

The boys are becoming more independent, we’re weaning J3 from breastfeeding so Josh is taking him off of my hands, and they’re more consistent with their naps, which is giving me more Time (yes, Time with a capital T). Recently I’ve been using it to do chores, but Josh is encouraging me to just leave them, and to work on stuff for myself.

So, today during naptime, I picked up the Surface, and with my new stylus in hand (thank you My Valentine) I got to work. This means that I’ve finally put some new designs on our Threadless store!

Go check it out and leave a comment if y’all want a custom design, or just have a cool idea for one!

I would also love to hear your strategies for coping with depression.

Until next time,

Josh: We should set all of our clocks forward 5 minutes. 

Me: Why?

J: So we’re always on time. 

M: We could just make a resolution to manage our time better so we’re more punctual. 

J: Nah, I think it’s too late to make resolutions now.

M: Any time is a good time to change, Joshua. 

J: I think the New Year’s Police would have something to say about that…

*SILENCE*

J: Fine.
