While I am sorting through 16 years of crap in the garage, I came across tubs and tubs and tubs and tubs or mail.
When Gunner deployed to Bosnia, he was gone for a year, and we had little to no communication by phone and email was not available. We wrote hundreds of letters.
Now that you can add three deployments to Iraq in there, and in 11 months a tour in Afghanistan under his belt, that leaves me with more mail than I can haul around.
So my question is.....what do you do with it all? What do you do with his letters? What about all the other mail that he was sent while over there? People have sent letters, cards, cartoons, etc. No worries, he kept it all!
When I say tubs, I mean those big blue rubber maid containers that are about 36 inches x 12 inches x 18 inches. I haven't ever gone through it, and I know it contains a lot of memories for him, because some of those cards and letters from random strangers appeared on a day that he really needed them.
If I mention them, he might just tell me to toss them, but I thought maybe y'all would have a better idea of what to do with them. I'm open to any and all suggestions....except scrapbooking, I am getting rid of my thousands of dollars worth of supplies because I have no room or time!
Is there a way to organize it? Do you just keep the stuff that y'all write back and forth to each other? I'm sure our cards and letters back and forth are 2-3 tubs alone. We've been apart for 4 years and this will make year number 5. Help!
