Writing Instead of Housecleaning: Problem? Y/N

After gleefully preparing for a sleep-dep writing week by taking part in the NaNo kick-off from 11:30 p.m. Sunday to 1:30 a.m. Monday, I find that I don't want to leave the computer. I want to continue to write, even though there are important things that need to be done around the house. This is unusual; usually I will turn to housework in order to avoid writing. I guess the past week or so of daily Zoom writing sprints have gotten me into a writing habit that I haven't previously had. 

(That sleep deprivation I referenced? It did serve to blow off this morning's writing sprint, which I slept through.)

I think I'm going to give myself the next hour to do cleaning and such, and then I'm going to return to the computer.
