Day 6- 10 Days til my Bday

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Elton John is coming to Houston. I wish so badly that I could get some concert tickets but they're soooo expensive. That would have been a great bday present!!! He's one of my all-time favorite musical geniuses!! Oh well...

Today was another great day of orientation! I've been waiting to find out what unit I'll be on and today I found out I'll be in the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit! My life is about to get pretty interesting!

They catered in doughnuts and pastries again today. And I haven't been the least bit tempted! I've been eating a good breakfast before leaving and getting a cafe latte at Starbucks when I'm close to work. The treats don't appeal to me in the least... thank goodness!

    Maybe you could speak up and ask why they cater in the donuts and pastries. Being a medical facility, it just doesn't seem right for them to be pushing the junk foods.

    Stay strong!
Elton John puts on an amazing show! I remember seeing him many years ago at Dodger Stadium. What a performance!

    Life will be interesting and hopefully you will have a lot less time to think about food (if only they would stop putting pastries in your way!!!!)

I love Elton John as well but I agree, concert tickets are so expensive here as well especially when you have to buy two (no point going alone!) I like Bruce Springsteen as well and he is coming here in the summer as well, but I won't be going either. Kids account for a lot of my money!!!

    Pastery doesn't do much for me either...unless it's chocolate coated!!Well done resisting, esp when you are working in phych. Oh my goodness, I hated psych when I was a student nurse. But now i'm a midwife & ppl say..."eeew, the blood" Enjoy your birthday when it arrives.
