We're on the road again! We left Tulsa and arrived in Oklahoma City this afternoon. In celebration of Mari's birthday, we went out for a movie (Tintin - very good) and supper (Steak'n'Shake - guilty pleasure), and now we're at our hotel and getting ready for bed.
Tomorrow morning Kol has his follow-up PET scan, and by tomorrow afternoon we should be on the road again - the plan is to make it to Grand Island NE Friday night, Bismarck ND Saturday night, Regina Sunday night, and finally back home to Outlook on Monday.
While it won't be as grueling as our 29-hour marathon drive down here three weeks ago, the days will be long (Saturday will probably be 9 or 10 hours driving time), the quarters will be tight, and we're all overtired, so it won't necessarily be an easy trip. Even so, we are really looking forward to getting home.
Two sayings come to mind tonight - "The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step", and "It's about the journey, not the destination". We've taken the first step on our thousand mile journey, but this time it's definitely about the destination.
