Should I feel bad?

I'm a single mother of a 5-year-old boy who I absolutely adore. I'd never say that things are super easy, but honestly, I'm blessed that it's not all that bad. I really don't have many people that I trust to leave him with, and then there's corona, so outside of school we're together 24/7. We live in the south, so he's been out of school all week due to the weather, and all he wants to do is play with me. Which I get, I'm the only other person he has to interact with and even though he has toys galore, that doesn't replace playing with mommie. I feel bad though, because I really don't feel like playing ALLLLL the time. I hate telling him no, but sometimes I just don't have the energy...and I literally never get a break. In a sense, I almost feel like I'm losing myself because I work from home, there's a pandemic going on so I don't go anywhere, and I'm mommie all day every day with no break whatsoever. I love to read, but even then I feel bad because I'll just want to sit and read a book and he wants me to play with him. Should I feel bad, or are my feelings rational due to my circumstances?
