Time from Wellfleet, MA to NYC: 4 hours 15 minutes. Time to get from the city limits to my folks' place in Manhattan, unload their stuff, and drive back to my place, park the car, and unload my stuff? 1 hour 40 minutes.
The felines survived my absence, and are currently demanding ALL THE ATTENTIONS. I have things to unpack, mail to sort, open, and deal with, and an apartment to put back in order.
I think this may be a good evening to order in Chinese, open a bottle of wine, and not talk to anyone* for 36 hours.
*human. the cats are demanding talkings, too.
