    Go for Coffee

    Drop the kids off at school and head to your favorite coffee shop.  Amarillo has a great choice of coffee shops to chose from.  Go enjoy your favorite flavor and get some peace.  Invite your best friend and enjoy some time with them without little ears hearing the conversation.

    Go on a Day Date with Your Significant Other

    Grab your significant other and go on a day date.  Enjoy time with each other without having to worry about getting a baby sitter.  Go get ice cream or even go on a picnic in the park.

    Play Video Games

    I'm sure the kids are always on the Xbox, Playstation, Wii, etc.  Now that they are out of the house, play some games.  Now's your time to beat the Pebble King of Craftland or whatever.

    Read a Book

    Now that you have some peace and quiet, read a book or a book series.  For even more relaxation, draw a bubble bath and read in the tub.  So relaxing!
