I have finally realized that, when considering duty vs. pleasure and effort vs. relaxation, my brain is only admitting of a single axis, which is not correct--a thing that should be self-evident from the way I phrased it above. I seem to have been considering duty == effort, and pleasure == relaxation. E.g.: I went away to Baltimore this weekend, and pure pleasure indeed is what it was, but also physically wearing for any number of reasons (SHUT UP NOT JUST THOSE), enough so that I came home with a nasty head cold and agonizing flare-up of the Probably Sciatica; and having dragged my sorry ass to work today in spite of it all, I found myself feeling guilty and twitchy and irritable that all I wanted to do was flop on the couch and make food magically appear. Because, see, I'd slacked off all weekend, see? So I need to settle down and get some work done around here, see?

Does not work that way.
