But we actually drove from New Castle, NH--an actual island in the Atlantic Ocean--to Arcadia, Illinois--on the shores of Lake Michigan--in one day. We left NH at 5:00 a.m., (4:00 a.m. Central Time) and arrived in Arcadia at 9:30 p.m., after dropping the boy off at his slumber party in nearby Newtopia. A total of seventeen and a half hours of driving, not counting very, very brief stops to refuel us and/or the car.
And it wasn't that bad. The kids were actually amazingly well-behaved. The driving wasn't that bad. We didn't hit any traffic and we experienced a bare minimum of road construction.
I am so totally impressed with my husband. All those remarks about him being completely insane or on crack? Just hot air. He is a genius.
And in other news, I'm not PMSing any more.
