Hardest Time of Day

We officially start school next week. We have been getting back into our morning routine and practicing piano the last two weeks. I have added in some Language Arts and a project this week to ease into school. My kids are doing great!
Me on the other hand am lacking in motivation. There is this one particular time of day that I loss focus and motivation. Do you have one of those? Mine is right after quiet time around 3:00 to about 4:30pm. I just don't want to do anything (notice I am blogging during that time). It is free time for the kids and a time for me to do any cleaning I didn't do or odds and ends. I find myself doing nothing and not wanting to do anything. I need to put some specific tasks in place for that time and I know that will help me. I do lay down and rest during QT...I can hardly stay awake because I am so tired (thank you Lord for this littlebaby !).
Anyway I was just wondering if anyone else has a slump time in their day and how you might have practically made some changes.

My slump time is 3 to 5 pm. I purposefully allow this time to be for reading and napping and general QT!
This is a neccessity when preganant and for one's own sanity - especially as homeschoolers - the days can be so full.

My slump is around 2-3 when I sit down to teach the boys history...and I love history! It is just the sitting in my warm, cozy, beautiful, comfy livingroom that does me in. If I keep moving I am fine...I have literally fallen asleep WHILE reading to the boys! They think it is pretty funny.

My slump happens about the same time of day, and I'm sorry to say that I haven't figured out anything really practical to combat it. Let me know when you do!

I am going to do some thinking about this and revisit it. I might make it my blogging time because it's a sit on my duff activity anyway...and thats what I feel like doing! Plus it will help me not be tempted to check in on the computer all day long. I don't really have a specific blog time right now. Let ya know how it goes.
