I had a friend call me earlier and invite me to go to "Big City" (9 hour drive) with her for the weekend. We would stay with her family for two nights. She needed to pick up some furniture, she had
to take her kids, and she didn't want to make the 18 hour drive alone. I almost
considered helping her out until she told me that-
1. I would not be able to take my own child because her family didn't want any extra kids
2. She wanted to go out with her family one night and would I mind staying behind and watching her kids.
3. I would have to pay for half of the gas.
Nope. I'm afraid I already have plans that weekend.
