It seems even without the kids here, I don’t have enough time to get everything done that I want to do.
Does "get everything done" mean "everything will be done by myself" or "everything will be done by someone?"

Everything here is referring to the list of things that the person wanted to get done. If I had five things on my list, and I completed all five tasks, then I would have completed everything on my list of tasks... so therefore I got everything done.
In this case, where usually the kids take up a lot of time and keep the list of tasks from being completed, the person still has a problem finding enough time to complete the list of tasks even when the kids are gone, so therefore everything on the list does not get done.
