Thank you to all of those wonderful people who are willing to send us goodies...we did get several Christmas cards, but the little subliminal message was really to my parents :). When I first got here I called my mom and dad just about everyday, but once Gary arrived I talk to them ehhhh maybe once a week. So, I decided that since I have Gary they know I'm taken care of and don't have to send me care packages like when I was in college, but I'm sure glad I get to benefit from Jonathan's packages :).
I also have no idea how long it takes stuff to get here, but I'm pretty sure a good while. I would ask for certain things to be shipped that I miss, but since we are coming home on Feb. 19th I think I can hold out!!
