Let me give you some numbers:
a) Number of hours between leaving Tomah, Wis., and arriving home.
b) Number of hours I have slept since leaving Tomah.
c) Kilometres I drove in those 21 hours.
d) Kilometres I have driven since we left Montreal three weeks ago.
I don’t want to talk about the rest of the drive. There were more tears (and they were all mine; Kendra was very brave, despite my being deep-down mad and too cold with her).
I didn’t think we were going to make it at a couple of points. But there was coffee, and Dennis Leary, and I tend to do rather well on a deadline. I blew it by about five hours … but we have Arrived Alive.
