Second leg

I'm ready for the next destination of my winter travels today -- my homeland of northeast, Ohio. For this trip I'm loaded down with Christmas booty from New Jersey, including a ski bag in which the requisite skis make up about 2% of the bag's cargo. My family celebrated the first night of Hanukkah last night, and a shortened Christmas (literally, as our tree was 3 and 1/2 feet tall) and dangled with only a few of our kid-made ornaments. Now my whole family hits the skies for a day of international comings and goings, and one (mine) return to home.
