I have friedn who is finishing up cancer treatment so I have been turning my summer upside down to help her. This morning she calls and says she has found the car she wants to buy. she has been looking for a few months. But, the deal will fall through if she doesn't get there today, so will I drive her? She lives an hour north of me. The car is two hours south of me. An hour to her place three hours to get to the car, whatever time to complete the deal and then two hours back home for me. Um, no. We had a long day yesterday, the kids are tired and I don't have child care so I would have to take them. Um, no. 6 hours in a car with no major theme park at the end of it? I don't think so. This is an all day issue, something you plan out not a sudden thing. Is she asking too much or I am not being flexible enough? Technically, I don't have anything preventing me from doing it, but I just can't do that to my kids.
