Link Blitz

The replies to Husband's grad school applications are coming in this week and next. There are three places we could end up: San Jose, CA; Seattle, WA, or Moscow, Idaho.

Two days ago Husband got his reply from Idaho--he's in! Not only that, but they want to give him a 10 hour-per-week TA position that, as a benefit, would know 50% off his out-of-state tuition. Um, amazing! We're very happy about it, but no decisions can be made until we hear from the other schools. (I know he's hoping for good news from Washington, so we shall see.)
