Another Box O’ Goodies

on February 23, 2013

I’m a little ashamed to admit that I’m only on my third box to my first soldier.  The very first box I sent was from the Soldiers Angels website.  It’s nice to just be able to order something without having to worry about what to pack but at the same time I want to be able to put personalized items in my boxes.  I thought with my first box that I would be able to track it and get an idea how long it would take for a package to get delivered to Soldier A but the post office failed to scan my package after the first transfer.  As I still haven’t heard from Soldier A I have not a clue in the world if he even got it :(  My local post office is trying to help me track it down but because it’s left the state of Maine it’s basically going to be impossible to do – grrr.  So hopefully these two boxes will be tracked properly and then I can get an idea of how long the packages take to arrive.

I decided to do an “entertainment” package.  I was thinking of sending popcorn but I don’t know if they have access to microwaves.  If anyone has any tips for me PLEASE let me know.  I would be forever in your debt!


I was so disappointed in Walmart.  They took away their $1 toy section.  I was going to fill up on that stuff but Walmart has, once again, fallen through. I guess that was a blessing in disguise though because I visited 3 of our little mom & pop shops instead.


I’m still not 100% sure of what my soldier’s interest are but I figured babes and food….could you really go wrong?  I’m taking a gamble on the books but I figured whatever he doesn’t like he’ll share.  Here’s hoping my boxes will find my soldiers……and in one piece!
