So, I'm a Girl Scout leader. And for some reason I thought that it would be "fun" to be the troop's Cookie Mom. Woooooow. It has been an adventure. Especially cuz not only did I volunteer to be in charge of all our own troop's cookie orders, I volunteered to be a Cookie Drop-Off point for 11 other troops to come pick their cookies up from. Little did I know I was going to have 14,000 boxes (a mere 1/3 of the cookies for our area) dropped off to my house at 8:30 a.m. on VALENTINE'S DAY. I was a little stunned when a big diesel truck with a 40 foot trailer pulled up to my house, followed by another 26 footer!
Then they started pulling huge pallets off that were TALLER than would fit into my garage. They then basically left 9 pallets on my driveway for a few of us to unload and start separating! We had to get them all into the house and the garage because the 40 mph winds were blowing them over and a snow front was coming in. hahaha. Wooooow.
It all worked out. The other Girl Scout troops all came in to load their cookies up into their cars and vans (with no one but yours truly to help). And they ALL knew I am 5 1/2 months pregnant. But hey! Who WOULDN'T be able to do that kind of labor after catering as many years as I have...that was a piece of cake! (Tell that to my legs and preggo belly last night! :) )
