    Thank Goodness I live 4 miles from work so get home quickly. Eat-because did not have time to at work. Then zonk out in front of the computer and let my mind REST from multitasking and all the stress of supervising ,managing patient care and my responsibility to the place I work. Then go back and do it all again the next day.

    fun with the girls? hehe that would be fun.

    for me, after a rough day and tomorrow is a day off, i take a shower, put my clothes i am willing to ruin or lose and go out in the city and have a night I will not remember tomorrow.

    If i have a shift the following day, I'll eat ramen.

    1. I have eaten some chocolate.
    2. I have watched movies.
    3. I have listened some classical music.

    I listen to metal/hard rock on the way home. Then it's always a hot bubble or epsom salt bath with lavender oil, a glass of wine, and a good book (or just complete silence and nothing to think about).
