I had a post up earlier this morning, but the formatting was all out of whack so I took it down and instead will do a short post on my weekend.

On Saturday our internet was down for the whole day, which meant no TV, no internet, no email.

So what to do? Well a good option would have been to write, but no instead I cleaned my house for five hours (dishes, mopping, dusting, vacuuming, bathrooms, washed all bedding). My husband worked all day outside and I felt like I couldn't take a break until he did, which begs the question.

How do you go write when everyone else in the house is working? Do you ever feel guilty?

Obviously I did on Saturday that's why I didn't do any writing until 10pm that night.

Yeay! I couldn't get the comment to work.

I do feel guilty when I don't get everything done, so I break up my time and take a block of 2 hours to write, 2 hours to clean, etc...

Oh yes! It's really hard not to feel like I'm sneaking in something.

Hmm. It depends. I usually get chores done first before I write, or sometimes I will take a bread in the midst of writing and do some more chores. My husband, though, likes to keep busy and he likes to clean, so I let him and don't feel guilty about it. LOL

Yeah, I sometimes feel like writing is an indulgence. Kind of like eating chocolate. ;)
