That may be later today. Then again, it may not be, see above: there were tears.
Anyway, prior to leaving for the school, I put together the first-of what I am certain will be many-care packages for The Teenager. I wanted to leave something behind that she could open upon our departure, to remind her that we are still here for her and that we love her, despite abandoning her to
I had a lot of fun pulling together the items for the package; I wanted a mix of things that were both practical and enjoyable, and, I think I hit a very nice balance. Apparently, The Teenager thought so, too; Hugh and I weren't three hours down the road when she texted me to tell me how much she loved it.
As an aside, my daughter lacks patience. I have no idea where she got that.
No idea, whatsoever.
Contents of the package:
-Cheddar flavored popcorn
-Flaming Got Cheetos
-Thermal Care Menstrual patches
-Gilette Razor Blades
-Mango scented shaving cream
-Mango scented shower gel
-A shower puff
-Tylenol Sore Throat Liquid
-EOS Lip balm
-Burts Bees chapstick
-A pedicure file
-A gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings
Working with a general theme, in this case, the color of the box and items, was a lot of fun and presented somewhat of a challenge. I will probably try to build The Teenager's packages on a theme whenever possible going forward. It makes it fun for both of us. Not as much fun as I'm sure she is already having at school, but, at this point, I'll take what I can get.
