My mother has a doctor's appointment at 10:00 am tomorrow morning, 45 minutes from our house. She insists on getting all dressed up to go to the doctors office, and she needs at least a half hour on the ice packs in the morning, plus breakfast and calming time before we leave. This means getting up an ungodly hour. Mind you, it takes me all of 15 minutes to get ready, set, GO! so I have never really understood this long careful preparation for something this mundane. Is this a generational thing?
