Why is it always the holidays?

Well, we've made it through Thanksgiving, thank goodness. However, it wasn't without its craziness, unfortunately, not to mention the Great Blizzard of 2010 that happened the night before we were leaving! Sunday night before Thanksgiving, Dad's caregiver called to say he had a boil again, this time on the the other buttock, and it was even larger this time. He wanted Dad to see the doctor, meanwhile, I was stressing out about the fact that I was leaving in two days and it was almost the holiday.
I called the doctor the next day and made an appointment for Tuesday, telling the caregiver that he would need to take
Dad as I would be leaving in the morning. This wasn't good enough for the caregiver, though, since not only was the boil bigger but Dad had a temperature of 102 degrees. All day there were various calls between myself, the caregiver, the doctor's nurse, and who knows who else. In the end, nothing really changed, the doctor's appointment would still be on Tuesday, Dad was given Tylenol, and hopefully, all would be well. Then the snow started. to be cont.
