Deployment Survival Tip #1

I am going to share deployment survival tips every week. I thought it would be fun! If you are not military, then you will get a little insight! If you read this blog (and are military) and have tips, share them and I will include them!! When David was deployed to Iraq, I was always looking for something different to send in his care packages!! I found these individual packages of crystal light lemonade to pour in bottle water. You gotta drink LOTS of water in a desert climate! Water can get old and these are a welcomed treat!! I have already been stocking up on these for David!

And just for fun, I thought it would be fun to include these 2 pictures!!!

  2. I know exactly! I used to send Terence koolaid and all those powdered drink all the time because he said the water got really old and he needed some FLAVOR ha..ha..Once I sent him a dr pepper and specially wrapped it in bubble tape so it wouldn't explode and everything-just one dr pepper b/c he wanted it so bad. And he said he put it in the refridgerator b/c if your gonna have it then is has to be cold right? Well-some stupid head STOLE his precious dr pepper and he was so upset! LOL! Anyways-hope you are having a good week! <3 Becky

  3. GASP!! Someone drank his Dr. Pepper!! That should be an instand court martial!! I made David brownies for his first care package. I was given the wrong mailing address. A month later, the package was returned to me!! It is so sad, you get so excited about their packages and when something happens to them you are heart broken!!


Thanks for stopping by!!!
