Here's the situation. Last summer I fired my kid's daycare. Unfortunately, I never remembered to seek out an alternate. Now, it's Thanksgiving week, and my kid has the whole week off but I do not. I need a new daycare situation, ASAP.
On the other hand, if I do not find suitable daycare, I will be forced to take not only today, but Tuesday and Wednesday off (as well as the normal Thursday-Friday state worker Thanksgiving holiday) - in other words, have a week's vacation.
As you may be able to guess, my motivation to find daycare in this particular instance is ... conflicted.
