Every summer my mom is off the first 2 weeks in July. Both my girls go to "Camp Grandma" for those 2 weeks with the exception of the weekend when they come back home to spend it with me & DH. In those 2 weeks I actually meet up with them for lunch one day, we go to the zoo and we'll do one or 2 other outings. My mom loves taking them and I like going with them too. Anyway, with the rest of the days I usually take a couple days to myself - sleep in, go shopping, lunch or dinner with friends....just take time for me. I also take a couple days and do a MAJOR cleaning on the house. I get into every little corner, move furniture, declutter. It's great because everything I clean stays look perfect for awhile before my girls get back home.
