Likes: Being able to sleep very soundly because my kids and husband are gone for the day.

Dislikes: Being tired, not feeling like working out when I get up, and trying to juggle college can be a pain in the ass.

Likes: At night I am the one in charge of the business so I don't have someone constantly telling me what to do, I like to take charge(that is until morning comes and my supervisor arrives..lol) Also, it is quieter and I can accomplish more work with my team. Sometimes on my days off I enjoy being up when everything is quiet in the house and I can do what I want.

Dislikes: Sometimes having to switch gears from night to day on my days off, that is if I want to go somewhere that is only open during day hours. It is a little harder on your body to work this shift that Mother Nature did not intend for us.

If you truly count your blessings, you may find they add up more than counting your sorrows!

LIkes: Better atmosphere, more positive people, More me time, ( I could never work out an hour a day 6 times a week on day shift) my hubby works nights too so family time not an issue too much.
Dislikes: the only one I can think of is sleep but I didn't sleep that well on days either when my mind gets going it doesn't matter what shift I'm on.

A day at a time and I will reach my goal. I am not perfect but I will forgive myself for the mistakes I make. Life is full of choices and sometimes we don't always make the best ones but that's what makes us human.

Like: The workload is easier. (Which is why those of us on the low end of the totem pole are here). This means I also get to work on more projects.

Dislike: Lack of sleep, like everbody else. I also miss seeing friends I work with -- there are often only one or two of us in the office overnight.

I like the fact that I don't have to deal with the higher ups, ( DON, ADON, Administrator, or any of the office personnel) , or the Doctors, or the family members of my clients.

I hate not being able to spend a day with my husband cause I am trying to sleep or just plain to tired to do any thing.

State one thing you like and one thing you dislike about working at night!

I like: the peace and quiet of the late hours
I dislike: the lack of sleep during the daytime
