Scalable expectation

I was thinking that expectation might have an intensity scale. So I could be driving and the story is driving,driving,driving or (get there)*,(get there)*,(get there)* and that it might be reasonable to consider this in a scale. The idea is that you could be a little impatient.
Then I was thinking about the concept of "home" and how being at "home" has the property that I can relax and stop thinking about how to change my location. If I am not home I am trying to get home. On a side track, I think that 'home' has a special place in narrative structure, like 'I'.
