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.......
