Remember your kids asking that when you were on a road trip? I sure do and my standard answer was usually "....eh, twenty minutes". That's the feeling I get sometimes when I'm getting to the final stages of a project, seems as if you always need just another 20 minutes, then another, and another; well, I'm sure you've been there.
