Medical Valentines/Medical Mondays

Happy February! I know February is supposed to be all about love (and presidents, and black history, and football, and awards shows) but Y hates Valentine's Day. It's not even worth it to try to get him to participate, because you can tell by his perpetual eye-roll that he's not into it. So we don't really acknowledge it. I recommend this to all of you medical spouses out there -- one less holiday to be disappointed about them missing!

For the rest of you, I've rounded up some anatomically correct/scientist friendly Valentines. Be on the lookout for that tomorrow!

Today is February's Medical Monday blog hop! I'm happy to be hosting with Kelly from Newlymeds. The premise is simple: if you have a blog that relates in any way to the medical life, link up to share your blog with the community.

Medical Monday is an opportunity for any and all medical/med life blogs to link up and meet others. So join us!

Are you confused if you qualify for the party?

Do you work in healthcare?
Doctor? Nurse? EMT? Chiropractor? Vet? Dentist? Therapist?
Are you the spouse or SO of a healthcare worker/student?
Are you a nursing student? Medical student?
Intern? Resident? Fellow?

You get the picture, right? 


Our once a month bloghop for bloggers like yourself, where we can build a community of support and friendship, learn from one another and share our stories and what's going on in our lives.

Here are the rules:

  1. Follow your co-hosts via GFC or email.
  2. Link up your medical/med life blog. If your blog name does not clearly state how you fit in to the med/med life world, please write a little intro or link up a specific post which clearly demonstrates your connection.
  3. Visit at least 3 other link ups, comment, introduce yourself, and tell them you're stopping by or following from MM!
  4. Help spread the word by using our button on your post or sidebar, tweet about Medical Monday, or spread the word on Facebook! The more the merrier for all of us!
And here's a helpful tip. . .

  3. Happy to be co-hosting with you this month! Can't wait to see your valentines tomorrow!

  4. OMG! Just love your "I {heart} you"!!!
    So happy to have you co-hosting with us this month! Love reading your blog!

  5. My first time linking up because I'm lame...but here we go! ;)

  6. Thanks for Co-hosting this month on the Blog Hop! Love the medical theme Valentines:) When my husband was in residency he bought me a vacuum (not very romantic) so after not setting the bar very high - I am happy to go out for a nice meal without any kids!

  7. My husband is on-call for Valentine's day, so I'm hanging out with my single-gal friends and enjoying some wine. They're pretty much my support when he's away, so I think it's a perfect way to celebrate :) Thanks for cohosting - I really like this MM link up!

  8. I love Valentine's Day and the man hates it. I am the type who truly loves making others happy though, so I will cook his favorite dinner and maybe even buy him a little something, with ZERO expectation of him doing anything in return. Because why deny myself the pleasure of doing something for him?
    That's my outlook anyway. =)

  9. Thought we'd join the party! Thanks for having us!

  10. dang, I missed it! I finally had something to link up to! guess I'll just have to check out everyone else's post ;)
