Cookies are Here!

Today was the long anticipated arrival of Girl Scout cookies. I met the truck at 8:00 AM, and helped unload/restack the pallets into nice 5 x 10 rows of crates, then awaited our troops' turn to be picked and sorted. The cardboard from the boxes got my allergies and I had a major migraine when I got home around noon. The good news was almost all my parents showed up at the Armory to get the cookies so I didn't have to cart that many home! Another fine parent helped me unload what was left at my house. Now the fun of delivering our orders begins! I am taking more aspirin tonight!

Steve and I were just having a conversation a couple of days ago about GS cookies! I told him I remembered selling cookies and they were 50 cents a box and that was considered high even then!

(Of course, that was 50 years ago! har har)

They are $3.50 now statewide. Haven't gone up here since Emily was a first year Brownie I think when they were $3 a box. I am slightly grateful for being the Cookie Mom each time because it's made me really not like them and so I don't eat too many! :) We have done well this year though, sold out at our booth sales and had to get 7 more cases today for girls who keep ordering! Yay!
