1) The Wizards game is definitely a no-go. Ah, well.
2) I had an appointment with my Oncologist today, which I was a bit freaked about — I was sure that she was going to order another terrifying PET scan. Turns out, though, that this was an exit interview, basically — making sure that everything was copacetic with me before telling me that we were done. A quick check-up, a recommendation for a dermatologist to help me keep my eyes out for any possible recurrance, and Bobsyeruncle. I’ve officially come out on the other side.
3) Minion has won a book award from Mount Holyoke, one of her choice schools — book awards are run by school alumni and honor outstanding high school juniors for their scholarship and community involvement. She has also received a targeted, non-form, personal recruitment letter from YALE. Fucking YALE. Her combination of high national test scores (including the National german and latin tests she took), stated interest in International Relations and PoliSci, her Model UN and legislative paging experience, as well as her being in the district’s gifted program all brought her to Yale’s attention, apparently. The good news is that if she manages to get in, they’re telling us that “families making less than 45K a year are not asked to contribute financially to the cost of a Yale education.” Crossing my fingers and toes for her on this, as you might imagine.
