    Scream? LOL... Rant? Not as much as I used to! Now if I have an off day, I usually refinish a piece of furniture or do something creative to get my mind off of it and to gain perspective.

    Come home, shower the day off, hang with my hubby and a cup of tea. I thank God He kept my staff and my patients safe and always remember........tomorrow is a new day.

    I know many people hate to do this but I actually schedule myself every other day at work unless it is the weekend. The reason is, because if I have a horrible shift I would hate to get up early to do it all over again. I need a day or two off in between. I know of some nurses that do this as well. It has definitely decreased my stress level. Some weeks I'll do Sun, Wed Friday or Tue, Thursday, Sat. Once in a while I'll work two shifts in a row in order to have 3-4 days off in a row, just squeeze in a mini vacay.

    Clocking out is a good way to start cheering up! Loving on my hubby and kids is the best therapy!

    I love to bake, so I usually make a batch of chocolate chip cookies and then play with my pitbull puppy.

    Yesterday, I came straight home speeding like the devil himself was after me and then I hugged my kids and praised the good God above for the healthy, lovely children and hubby I have...sometimes the things we see can make us feel like we are breaking...
