"Well, it's not gonna do us any good sitting here whining about it"
Emily is traveling to Toronto to visit with my sister Tiffany and her family. She called me as she was traveling through upstate New York. The conversation went something like this:
Emily: "Hey, I'm in Peru, New York. Can you look it up and tell me if I am making good time?"
Johnny:"Are you sure?"
Johnny:"Well you are almost to Canada, but you are going to cross the boarder in the wrong place!"
In the maze of freeways going through Albany, Emily ended up heading north for several hours instead of heading west. Now she is driving around the north side of Lake Ontario instead of the South side. I certainly could have been much worse, but it is pretty painful to tack 2 or 3 hours on to a 12 hour car ride with three young children. Oh well, I am sure tomorrow will be much better since the kids didn't really take much of a nap, and they went to be 3 hours later than normal.
