Well as quick as it was given to me, it was taken away.

The wife has pulled the plug on out of state jobs and has instead encouraged me to go to school and become a cop here in MN. She would have a hard time being away from friends and family and I can understand that.

I am not sure how I feel about this whole thing, but if I have to stay in MN for the good of the family I guess that is what I am going to do. I realize that if the wife isn't happy, there isn't anybody that is going to be happy.

What would I like to do you ask? Well I am a bit more of a free spirit when it comes to stuff like this. YES, I would miss my family and Kris', and YES it would be hard getting to know all new friends in a different state, and YES it would be a big change to be in a place where we have no friends or family, but I have never been one to let that bother me. If I want to go, then I go.

But alas this shall not be. I am going to call the local college and set up a time soon that the wife and I can go in and meet with an admissions person to get me all ready to start in the spring.

In the end the wife will be happier, the good of the family is upheld, and maybe I might even get to be a real cop someday.......

For my wife and FOF

What is this????? An Update?????? Ok Ok, so I am horrible at blogging. I have said it before and I really do mean it when I say it, I AM BAD at this.

So what is new with me you ask? Well not much actually. I am still working out and trying to get less fat. It is going ok but Dt. Pepsi and Miller Lite sneak their way into my mouth a little to frequently still. They are just so good, and it is summer, and DAMNIT why is beer so good........

Anyways, the wife is for sure prego and with a little over a month left I am pretty sure she would pay any price that was quoted to get this baby out of her. She is uncomfortable a lot and is ready to be done. I am scared as hell to add a second, but also very excited to meet little Brody. I often wonder how in the hell I am going to care for 2 kids at once when the Mrs. is out shopping or whatever by herself and I have to care for both at the same time with no help. I am sure I will make it work but I am nervous.

Kris and I have been talking and I have gotten the green light to look for cop jobs outside of the state of MN. That is pretty exciting and scary as well. So I am now spending the day today and here on out looking at places to apply. Maybe I will get interviews, maybe I won't but I guess I will never know what could be unless I try.

So that is what I know. I can't promise to blog every day, but I will try to get better!
