Two things that I like to do is paint and sew. I never seem to have enough free time to do either of them very much though, and when I do make time to do them, I always feel a little guilty that I really should be doing something else -housework, family, excersizing, etc. Today I forced myself to stay close to the laundry room beacuse there were several mountains of laundry built up and if I don't focus on it, I forget that I'm even doing it. While I was waiting between loads, I started to paint (not fun painting, banners for the town - but anyway). It turns out that doing laundry and painting or sewing for that matter, are the perfect combo! I can do both a t the same time. I don't feel guilty AND I'm doing something I like. Does anyone else have these guilty feelings? Why do we put so much pressure on ourselves? Am I alone in this?
