Mom Knows Best

Monday, February 2, 2009

The best thing about living away from home is the care packages!

OK, maybe not the absolute best, but they're up there. My beloved mother is notoriously crummy at sending things -- like the birthday gift my grandma bought me (my birthday's in August) that my mom tried to play off as a Chanukah gift.

But speaking of Chanukah, my mom today sent me a great & mostly unexpected little care package:

Yes, I said Chanukah - there's a package of dreidel-adorned goodie bags in there with a Post-It on it that says "for next year's Chanukah party." And in the category of Things That are Slightly More Timely, we've also got two pairs of earrings, two iPhone cases, a pair of Valentine's Day socks & a cute, nubby rainbow scarf (Post-It says "to go with your red coat") that my mom may or may not have knitted herself.



  1. my dad just forwarded a birthday card from my aunt to me this week. ... my birthday was in November.

    but care packages are always great. especially when they include iPhone cases.

  2. My mom sends me care packages for everything still too. I probably will get one from her next week for V-Day too. She always finds the best stuff too!


Leave me some love.
