I'm in the middle of gathering odds and ends for the first care package of this deployment. Right now there are a bunch of random things that Joel's asked for - magazines that have come in the mail, magnets for his locker, a card he forgot at home and Marshmallow Fluff. Random, right?
I became a pro at care packages during his Iraq deployment... I had a stack of labels already filled-out, I had the packing tape figured out so it wouldn't stick to itself and I had an abundance of boxes and envelopes around. I'm a little rusty right now and not looking forward to re-acquainting myself with the customs forms. Ugh.
So, question for the other military spouses and my trusty veteran follower (you know who you are): What are other goodies that I should include in care packages? I need some help because I'm totally drained of any creativity at the moment.
