Now that the kids are at school, what do you do during the day?

Hi everyone! My children just started school today and boy am I happy! Don't get me wrong, I love the summer too and spending time with them, but by the end of summer, I am looking forward to more peaceful days! So, here it is finally and now I will settle into my school year schedule! I mostly get cleaning done then play with my 18 month old.When she takes her nap when, I finally get some peace and quiet! Maybe I will take a little nap myself, read some of my book, watch some t.v, etc. That is so very important to me. Sometimes, as mothers we forget to take some time out for ourselves, well, I'm getting mine! Has your daily routine changed much from summer's? What do you do while the children are in school? Do you look forward to the school year like I do?

I work from my home, I have my own online business. So as soon as the kids leave, I spend about 20 minutes planning my day, and then I get to work. I answer Emails, package orders, make new items, photograph and list them on my website, and then I make more items after the kids go to bed at night and I can sit in front of the TV. I love my kids too, but I'm definitely glad they went back to school! :)
