E. Wake up when we are just south of Ann Arbor as we're pulling over so the other van can switch drivers
F. With head tilted to the left and resting on my backpack, I wonder why I'm not looking directly at the dotted yellow line, and why it's over the driver's right shoulder.
G. Pray while my van barely pulls off the highway just north of Ann Arbor for a new driver to take over.
a. New driver of both vans are passengers.
H. Arrive at GRR a little later than expected.

My (then) 8 month pregnant sister got up to get me at the airport. Found out later from my BIL that he didn't know she had left the bed at all. I asked her how long I had to sleep before my nephew would be waking me up, and she said she'd try to hold him off until 9am.

Arrived at my destination (bed) at 5:30am.
