I usually work the same days every week, unless some nimrod gets ahold of the schedule and screws it up. Sundays, Tuesdays, Fridays are my days of choice. I have two small children that I take to school in the AM, then I'm free to sleep for about 3 hours prior to picking the smallest one up.
In the summer I just stay up until the little one takes a nap...around noon, then nap myself.
I don't work back to back days anymore because I can't guarantee that I'll be able to sleep enough after the first shift to be ready for the second.
I LOVE working nights...it gives me a chance to do things with my little monsters - and I don't miss out on family things.
And I can sleep anytime, just give me a pillow and a blanket (and a fan, and something to cover my eyes..and earplugs.....
Hoping today's cooler than yesterday
