Breakfast Topic: What do you during Tuesday maintenance?

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the AOL guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

While a good portion of WoW's players hold down full-time jobs or are in school full time, there are those of us who work from home, are stay-at-home parents or have a rotating schedule and wind up with a Tuesday off. Unless it's a patch day, everyone knows that come 5 a.m., regardless of whether you're ready or not, you will be logging off for the morning. For people on the east coast like me, that usually means my morning and part of my afternoon.

What do you do if you're home during Tuesday maintenance? When I know I'll be home when the servers are down, I plan to spend the first half of my day taking care of things around the house and running any errands I might have. My daily routine doesn't change much when Tuesday rolls around, aside from getting a few more things done. Having three high-strung dogs means lots of walking, throwing of the squeaky toys, and attacking the carpets with the Dyson vacuum. If there's a movie I've been wanting to see for a while, I'll pick it up and watch that after the dogs pass out. When the servers go down, I treat it like I would if I were taking a break for a few hours or a few days and take the opportunity to take care of my real-world obligations.

Do you plan your day around Tuesday maintenance if you know you will be home? What do you do while the servers are down?
