WO: Weekly Obsessions

I would love to have a good reason for not writing anything besides WOs lately, but the truth is: I’ve just been a social butterfly! Between crazy work hours and crazy happy hours … I’m just too popular. The struggle is real.

  1. Teacher Appreciation Week: As I mentioned last year, my family is full of educators. I wouldn’t be half of who I am without so many influential teachers, and I appreciate their never-ending reminders that summer is just a few weeks away. Right.
  2. Nurse Appreciation Week: My other female family members are nurses (or teach nursing), so this one goes out to those gals! They’ve got just as many ridiculous work stories to share but manage to save lives every day. Color me impressed.
  3. Margarita Appreciation Week: I may or may not have made this one up. But with Cinco de Drinko (and a rough Seis de Mayo), I think it’s only fair we celebrate the salted siren.
  4. “Mood Booster” on Spotify: My fabulous friend, J. Pep, introduced me to this wonderful playlist that got me through a particularly challenging workday. The mix of oldies and goodies is sure to bring a smile to your lovely face.

Cheers, peeps! And spread the love around 🙂

Who Do We Appreciate?

It’s come to my attention that it’s both Teacher Appreciation Week and Nurse Appreciation Week. (There’s another appreciation week, but I’ll let Seth Meyers explain at 1:05 in.)

Since all of the women in my family are teachers or nurses or teach nursing, it’s only fitting we honor them the Wittyburg way: with someecards!

I wouldn’t be a word nerd if not for the educators in my life making me feel intellectually inadequate.

As someone with too weak a stomach for “Grey’s Anatomy,” I salute you.

Wishing my many influential teacher and nurse friends — and millions more throughout the country — a wonderful week with well-behaved students and friendly patients.

I’d never last a day doing what you do, so may God have mercy on your soul.
