How old are your kids? Maybe you can send them out during the day to play and have me time on a Sunday afternoon. I schedule every Sunday for myself from morning til night I do nothing but pamper myself....unless it's really important. My daughter is 4 and usually watches me wax my legs, paint my nails (and sometimes gets her painted too), etc. and my husband takes her to the park and barbecues for us....so that I can have the day to myself and in the evening we watch a movie with popcorn and have some family time.

There maybe an underlying issues. Check with your pediatrician...OR...Melatonin, it is natural, it is in the vitamin section. Works with the bodies melatonin and helps them sleep. My kids get wired at bedtime, one is on meds that make it hard to go to sleep, the doctor recommended it; the other is a teenager and the phone keeps him busy.
