LOL. We usually get our privacy from them pretty easily. They're good about entertaining themselves or going to spend time with another family member. They usually spend part of the time at their dad's, so we do get a nice amount of time alone.
How old are they? If old enough, you could always send them to the movies for a night, to a friend's house, send them to the backyard with a couple friends and a tent to "camp out" LOL. If that's actually something you can do in your area. Ours is suitable for this type of thing. They key is (probably) finding an activity they love and will want to go and do, out of the house. A gaming arcade? Movies? Friend's house? Kids usually almost always want to visit a friend's house on weekends. You could let them go to a trustworthy friend's house. Do your kids have aunts and uncles and grandparents? Ours love spending time at all the family's houses. They often do a hunting trip with one family member on Sunday or a fishing trip with on on Saturday morning, or hiking with another. It really is a good experience for them too.
