Officer GUS

As luck would have it Gus is finally getting the opportunity to become a St. Louis Police Officer. He has been on the waiting list for some time now, and the week before Christmas he finally received the call he's been waiting for - all he had dreamt of. That Friday (the day before Christmas Eve) he told his boss of nine years and was fired. He wasn't to begin the academy until Jan. 9, 06, so this was quite a devastating blow - on top of the fact that we would not only be without a paycheck for a while, but that we would be uninsured, have to put our house on the market and begin searching for a house in the...CITY. Not exactly my idea of where I wanted our life to be - but it's part of that marriage thing I got myself into, right?
