I've overfilled the engine with oil (By around 2 Quarts). Will I be able to drive for a day to pick up tools I need, in order to restore it back to normal conditions?

If you overfilled the engine with oil by two quarts it would be damaging to the engine to run it for any amount of time. The crankshaft will dip into the engine oil and make is get aerated. This can cause crankcase pressure to buildup and cause oil to leak past seals and cause engine running problems. Have the excess oil drained.
