    Early Morning Denny's and pedicure with co-workers is the Absolute best!!! Sometimes it feels good to do some shopping but most days I just can't wait to jump in the Hot Shower and Dive in the bed!!! OMG it's the best feeling when you don't have to be back at work at 3 pm.

    After a REALLY tough shift, I get doughnuts. =) I'm pretty bad about stopping at McD's after work or going to the convenience store and getting Tornados off of the roller grill (I think they are yummy!), but I usually reserve doughnuts for after those really hectic, stress filled nights.

    After a tough shift I used to 'reward' myself with an unhealthy breakfast (my shifts end at 7:00a.m.) that consisted of donut holes and perhaps a big breakfast burrito or Sausage McMuffin from McDonald's.

    I now 'reward' myself with 45 to 60 minutes of cardio exercise at the gym after work, and my mind and body feel better because of it.

    Rotfl! I thought I was the only one! Too bad you can't delegate urination to someone else. Jk!!! Lol!
    Yes!!! There have been times ( after a brutal night shift) when I get home and have been so knackered...I've actually considered wearing an ' Attends' to my bed to avoid the dreaded " middle of a good days sleep pee disturbance".

    Never had the guts to actually do it though....

    There are not one, but TWO dairy queens on my drive home. First dairy queen, a chocolate dilly bar. the Second one (blocks from my home)- a blizzard so i don't have to eat it in the car. I got my system down!

    If it is a really bad night shift hope that someone else drove the car pool and I can nod off.
    If it is a morning or afternoon shift stop at the 7 - 11 for an ice cream on the way to the carpark. And at the pub at the end of my street!

    Bloody Mary's with a few of my fellow co-workers is always a good time. Our options are usually limited at 8am, but we manage. Nothing dissolves the stress like some drinks and sharing the "war" stories of the night.
