We’re nearing the end of March…
and I have yet to get any Girl Scout Cookies!!! I was a Brownie & Girl Scout when I was little, and though I didn’t do it for long, those cookies somehow get into your bloodstream and make you crave them for a lifetime. If I were in Erie, I’m pretty sure the little suppliers would be at every local grocery store for the duration of the sale, but I haven’t seen any in our neighborhood. Perhaps Girl Scouts aren’t as popular in the urban areas? Is it a suburban thing here? Or perhaps it’s just not as popular across the board?
Anyway, I’m really hoping for a box of Thin Mints and Samoas (the coconuty-chocolate ones). And if I really go crazy, I might get a box of Tagalongs, too (the ones with the peanut butter inside). I have gone so far as to email the regional chapter of the Girl Scouts to find out where I can get some, but I have yet to receive a reply. Apparently they do not understand the gravity of this situation. 🙂
Moving on… we had a lovely Palm Sunday weekend. Actually, yesterday we had a pretty big group over for Sunday dinner. I haven’t had a group like that over since before Christmas (and I honestly have no idea how I did that, I must have just been insane–I can hardly recall it). But it was a lot of fun to do it yesterday. I was totally exhausted at the end, but it was still fun. It’s been so long since we’ve had plans on a weekend that Abraham turned to me last night and said, “Having plans on the weekend makes it go by so fast. Let’s not have any of those anymore.” 🙂 We’ve really cut back since September. In some ways, we’ve decided to have fewer plans, in other ways it has just happened. I think it’s a good place for our family to be right now.
