I always include something for DS when I send small fun stuff to GD.  I like to send her packages every 2-3 weeks.

My Airman comes home every few weeks and I send things back with him to share with his friends.

 I am still compelled to buy things for him. He moved out last July and has done A LOT of growing up for a 19yo. His gf (of 2 years) moved in with him in February, so she takes good care of him.

 They used to come home every weekend to do laundry. They are about 35 minutes away, so it was nice to see them. Now that they both have good jobs and a new kitten, we don't see them as much. Heck, they make more money than we do!

  When walking through the store, I will often see something that Michael likes and pick it up for him. I don't think I will ever stop doing that. We have a few things locally that they don't have readily available where they are, so they look at it as a treat. Plus, I have to get things for my new grand-kitten. :)

  He will be home this weekend, to go fishing with some friends, so he will take a bag of goodies with him. God, I miss him.

LOL .. That is great though you get things to restock her up with :)

I keep dropping her off at that college and she keeps coming home!

Seriously,  I buy stuff when she comes home to get her restocked.
