    After a very tough week, I have rewarded myself with a nice pedicure or even a nice Swedish massage. I don't do this all of the time, though, maybe once/month.

    Go out for breakfast with my coworkers after we get off work...maybe have a margarita or beer

    Otherwise, a nice hot shower, fan on, and SLEEP.

    I crave french fries after a bad night (probably b/c I have starved most of the shift). So I go to McDonald's hoping for some fries and a fish filet and then they tell me that it's breakfast and they don't have those items until 11am. Then I am sad and drive home in despair.
    Lol, exaggerating a little.
    Haha love this!

    I work PRN as a CNA in a hospital float pool. have worked there since the year before i started NS (going on 3 years now). Nothing feels netter to me than a Dr. Pepper, Criminal Minds, Mindy Project, reading a good book, or two , and then hitting the sack!

    Rotfl! I thought I was the only one! Too bad you can't delegate urination to someone else. Jk!!! Lol!

    A hot bath and a good book. And, hopefully, 7-8 hours sleep.

    Exactly what I'm doing now...noshing on a snack, watching TV (House Hunters International tonight!) and surfing the net til I get tired (that's after my usual evening shift)....after nights--shower & bed! I rarely do day shifts.
