Yay Elvis!
« on: October 19, 2022, 11:56:39 AM »
My daughter Elvis (Elizabeth) has been accepted to Yale for their PA program. It's a master's degree level program and nearly impossible to get into--lots and lots of highly qualified applicants. Diane and I are extremely proud of her and all the hard work she's done in balancing a career as a Respiratory Therapist with motherhood and a late start in academic success. She is, of course, over the moon. Though of course, I said the first thing that came to my mind, which was: "Well, you've got the easy part done". I can be such a dick. Fortunately, she ignored me and continues to be over the moon. She told me the contact person said "You have xx days to decide to accept..." and Elvis screamed "YES". He said she didn't need to make an immediate decision and she yelled "YES" again.

And she still found time from doing her prereqs for the Yale program, working full time as a respiratory therapist, and building a house to make this costume for Halloween. Look at the slippers. No detail is too small, she's nuts:
