Staff Appreciation Day

One of the things I love about my job--as "housekeeping supervisor" (or as I like to call it, "chief nag") at a half-way house for recovering alcoholics and addicts--is how appreciative everyone there is of the work that I do. I am thanked often and have been told repeatedly, by clients and co-workers alike, that the House would fall apart without me.

I don't really believe the House would fall apart without me, but after shifts like the one I just had, I am sometimes tempted to test the theory.


  1. Days like this do have one benefit--they make us normalcy of the rest. Hope tomorrow is a better one!

  2. It's so true that if we didn't have bad days we'd never learn to be grateful for the many days that pass without a hitch. I'm hoping for one of those soon. ;)
