Ranger Care Package & Florida Update
He did include a food wish list! He said he was craving baked goods after all of the processed MREs. Ranger students can receive care packages at the end of each phase. Otherwise, they aren't allowed to be sent food, except for non-caffeinated gum. I've been putting gum sticks in each of his letters. He'll be able to bring the food and magazines I send him on the 4 hour bus ride back to Fort Benning after Phase 3. His wishlist included:
Cake Mix Cookies
Puppy Chow (yes, he underlined this one)
Magazines (like Runner's World and Outdoor)
So last night I had fun. I went shopping at Walmart and then I made puppy chow and funfetti cake cookies. And I didn't even have one bite.. it all went down to my Ranger (okay I lied.. I might have had one bite of the cake batter). Packed it all up in my flat-rate box and it should get down there in time for his 4-hour bus ride home on Sunday!
In other news, today I heard back from a potential employer in the Seattle area (hubby is going to be stationed at Ft Lewis after the training at Ft Benning). I thought I had totally nailed the interview, but he emailed me to let me know the position had been filled..
We've also had some major issues at work today. This is my much-needed 10 minute break from everything. My phone has been ringing off the hook. It's days like this that I wish I had him with me to give me a hug.
.. think I could sleep through everything until ranger school graduation?
