She got together with her sister, her brother and her parents all to go in together to rent a large beach house for all of us to vacation together. I was working on an important project at the time so only could afford to take a 5 days off for this vacation while my wife and her family planned to stay for 10 days. So I was just going to travel to Florida with them and stay my five days and drive separately back so I could return to work. The first part of the trip went as planned as we all met up in Destin and enjoyed our time on the beach doing the normal beach activities. While we were at the condo my mother in law got a call from her boss she is a nurse and they had a lot of nurses sick at the hospital and really were needing her to come back early so she could provide some coverage for the sick nurses.
