  • During the summer, only when I make the effort to arrange it. When school begins, I'll have a break every M,W,F, from 8-12 and at any other time I make the effort to arrange it.

  • I only work about 15-18 hours a week, and I don't really think of the time I am super busy working as time away/decompress time. HOWEVER.... I love it when I end up with a free hour or so between appointments. I grab a book, find a quiet corner, and read. Its heaven. :)

  • During the summer? Never. My DD is starting kindergarten (my other 2 are in 3rd & 2nd grades) this year so I will have a little break, although I am going to work about 15 hours at their school......not much of a break when I'll still be able to see them :)

  • When they are all asleep. Otherwise, I have not had a break at all since my husband's death.
