I'm back in Holland, Michigan after a very pleasant weekend at home. I've already been to the store and laid in some supplies (okay, b33r). I arrived this morning at about 2 am.
Something that occurred to me between driving home and returning, on the four-and-a-hald-hour drive, is how inexorable the formula distance=rate x time is. I managed to travel at a fairly steady pace, and that meant that even after two and a half hours of driving, the hotel was still two hours away, and nothing would change that except more driving. Which, obviously, I did.
