    ok... I skip the thread for a week or so, and what do we get...
    Beer... ok... beer is good....
    (ya know beer backwards is reeb.... which means that we should drink beer till it makes sense....)
    and illusions of 'it'
    (and i have to tell you... it is good, morning noon and night... Yes, it is a wonderful thing...)
    ok... I think I need a nap...
    and, yes.... getting up early is a HORRIBLY nauseating topic... SO...

    As I was struggling to get my brain engaged enough this morning to pack my daughter's lunch at 6:15, I was remembering how difficult it used to be when I worked 3-11 shift to get up and do this. After working 4 or 5 days in a row I was often getting very behind in my rest and had no idea what I was doing some mornings when I was trying to get the kids off to school. One day my daughter came home and said:

    "Mom, do you know what you put in my lunch today?"

    " have no memory of packing your lunch. I did pack one for you, didn't I?"

    "Well, sort of. You gave me a juice box and two pieces of bread."

    Bad mom! Fortunately her friends all contributed an item or two so she didn't starve that day!

    it's ok........i would forget my head if it wasn't attached @ 0630! as it is takes me from 8-8:30am, until about 10am to realize whats going on, and that it's the next day...lmao!!! :d

    Just remember, for those of us working nights, early morning is about 2PM. It usually takes me about 2 hours before my brain is fully awake when I get up that early. And wouldn't you know it? My husband LIKES to get up early even on his days off! So I tell him that 3AM is a nice time of day for both of us, he can get up then, and I can go to bed..... we can meet in the middle of the bed that way.

    see this is why I like the night shift. I work 2300-0600 I am home at 0630 packing lunch and fixing breakfast. My husband sleeps late cus he is a DJ / Karaoke host and works till about 0200 He loves it when I wake him up for "it" .

    I'm a morning person.....I get up at 0500 every morning regardless if I'm working or not. It's just my routine now, and I always go to bed between 9 and 10 p.m.

    i think the best shift would be 11A-7P. this way you can stay out fairly late and sleep in. that would be the life. has anyone ever heard of that? and if so where?

    i used to work 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. until they took our 10 hr shifts away. i liked it at the time. this was in vegas so 10p.m. was still early and i got to sleep in.

    yep,...the hospital i used to work at had 11a-7p & 11a-11p shifts. it was in open heart,...usually when the first cases started getting back. it worked really well!!
