How does one deal with being motivated to create but with ZERO energy at the end of the day?

Is this just...what it is like to have a 1.5 year old kid?

My new tent is here! Now to find a time to go out into the woods and use it.

Work complaints 

I *hate* that I'm downloading WebStorm to work on a JS project. But the infection is so deep on this team that I don't think I have much option at this point.
