I travel alot and get to see alot of my family on a fairly regular basis and thanks to Skype we get to video conference too. Yet it never fails right around a holiday not always the same holiday I get melancholy and miss my family. It hit me today coming home from those last minute errands before everything shuts down for Christmas. I'd had coffee w/Rochelle, breakfast w/Cole and songs with D & E all via Skype but the physical presences of them were all too far away. We are really bad at traditions although we excel at habitual and holidays just seem to pass like any other day of the year around here. Maybe our tradition is not to do anything out of the ordinary, this sounds about par for the course could we be any more lame?
