After missa we're heading out to grab a late dinner of sushi with a coworker of mine.

PRAYERS! would be appreciated. As one of the top candidates for the PhD program for English, Jacob will be spending his Sunday and Monday going through interviews and evaluations, competing for the few slots the university has for the fall.
Good part about the whole thing is that the university told us that even though we lived relatively close by, we should feel more than welcome to take advantage of the complimentary hotel this weekend. The university is in a lovely area of town with fun shops and restaurants, so we're taking them up on it and spending two nights away ... albeit only thirty minutes away.
