My boyfriend will be leaving for his deployment very soon. I’ve looked up ideas to send him care packages while he’s gone. Different ideas for each month, holidays, and his birthday. Got a lot of ideas… Hopefully I can compile them and send him great packages over the next couple of months. I’ll ask my brother what should be in them since he just got back from his tour a few months ago. A few things that I know for sure that will be in his care packages are carmex (them lips be chap!! Lol), cream for his eczema (my prescription since someone refuses to go to the doctor, smh) and jolly ranchers.
He knows that I’m really artsy, crafty, cheesy. He laughs at me and says he doesn’t want stuff like that but every solider I know that has been deployed loves care packages and they love it more when their loved ones take time out to make them special. I want each package to be different every month so I’ll be brainstorming. I also was reading on this blog that I found from Pinterest that it’s best to began preparing for your “spouses” homecoming right when they leave. Saves on the frustrations and stress of waiting a few weeks before he comes home to get things done. Well I can’t think of anything specific for his homecoming at the moment beside his welcome home sign. I told him that I’d be waiting for him with a neon yellow sign. He told me that I better not have a big crazy sign. He knows me better than that lol. Well… One of my friends bought these nice signs for her home by Military Signs by Heather (Facebook). She’s going to make me a nice custom sign for him. I know he’ll love it. After that… I’m just trying to do the grown up and go on our vacation lol.
Anywho… I’m really going to miss the guy while he’s gone. Off my thugness some tears came out last time we were together that got to him. I wasn’t trying to cry the stupid tears came out of nowhere!! Such a girl lol. He told me to stop crying because he didn’t want to see me with any tears. I sucked it up and put on my thug face lol. I asked him if he was going to miss me. He told me to look up in the sky. I asked what’s that gonna do?? He says “just look up.” I did and he says “you see how big the sky is?” I was like yea, ok?? He says “that’s how much I love you, of course I’m going to miss you. I miss you now and I’m not even gone yet.” I had to hold in my girly tears lol. I smiled. He then hugs me tight and says “we’re going to make it through this, we just have to be strong for each other” *sigh* almost the whole first year of our relationship we’ll apart. I just hope that we do survive this deployment because it is going to be a challenge. I pray for his health, safety, and sanity while he is deployed. I pray that he returns to me and his family safe. I pray that he’s stationed in Georgia when he returns!! Lol
