No and would not know what to do if I did. Whenever we go away I always have fun with my son.

I have, but it was with my mom and only for a couple of days.  It sure was nice though!  

Otherwise, I've only taken work trips without the kids.

Yes, only for 3 days tho.  I missed him too much.  I will have to do it again for a week soon but it's for a wedding.

I did...but I spent much of the time thinking, "oh...my daughter would love this or my son would love that".  As they've gotten older, it's gotten easier, but I still think of them when I go places.

 Nope. Theyre with me all the time. We go on vacation together. IF they did have a better relationship with their father and he was around regularly then I would go and do something on my own.

Yes I have. This past thanksgiving was the first time the kids where going to be wou their dad for an extended period of time and I was a wreck. I had never been without for more than one night before our divorce and they were about to be gone for 11 days straight. So my sister and her fiancé convinced my to go to Florida with them (where our other sister lives) for the week.
I was nervous and missed my kids more than you can I know but I ended up having an amazing, relaxing time. It was nice being able to spend time with my sisters (neither of which have kids) and just be an adult. It's probably not something I would do again but it got me through a VERY difficult time.

No.  Never.  In fact I now have vacations with my daughter since she has nothing to do with her father.
