    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.

    After a rough shift, I tend to curl up into a ball and go to bed. I also watch TV in bed to try to keep my mind off of the day. Now, I tend to make stress balls. I make them by using a balloon, baking soda, and flour. It helps to relieve stress. The website is: http://www.stressballs.com

    When I squeeze them, it makes my tension a lot less.
