Beware: Its Girl Scout Cookie Time


Or more precisely it will be here starting next Friday. I took on the Cookie Manager job for PDQs troop this year. After going to training this morning I really have to wonder what the heck I was thinking! I sat through three long hours of forms, deposit slips and the boxes to case calculation for the cookie order. We learned how we would have to sign our lives away to receive the cookies--yes, when we pick them up we become financially responsible for them until we pass them on to the parents of the girl who sold them. There is obviously a process nut in charge of the whole thing, there is a precise timed schedule with forms and an online ordering system. I made my little project manager heart proud. One reason I took the job was a colleague telling me it was right up my PM alley.
If you live in Maryland, beware, the girl scout cookies are coming soon!

I just said "ohhh noooo" aloud because I promised myself I'd keep up my good dieting that I've had over the last few weeks!

Do you ship cookies to R-town?

Pretty please?

Sadly, we missed the cookie sales this year!!! Locally, it is in April. So.....

I would be happy to place an order and have it shipped here!

I usually just make a financial donation as I do not want those evil things in my home....
