Why do I ALWAYS have a cookie mom/grandma/troop leader in my social circle? So I can get my cookies FRESH out of the factory, that’s why! Smh. I have a SERIOUS limit in place on the cookies this season (it just takes too much work to get my fitness on to sabotage all of it – sorry cute girl scouts and brownies). I’ve decided to donate toward their fundraising in lieu of a box of cookies when I inevitably run into them while out and about. I heard about a boycott, but since I still don’t completely understand the situation (and I’ve read several versions of the story), I’ll disregard. I can’t penalize girls I know are working to fund their community projects and become better people because of a situation I can’t even understand in another state.
Yes, it’s that time of the year that I both welcome and dread – Girl Scout Cookie Time. I allowed myself one order of cookies and that’s it. Otherwise, they would have wound up around the house and in the car and everywhere anyway. Now that I’ve had mine, I can say I did that and move on.
Foods that I usually find myself weak to lose a lot of their appeal when I do that – I say ok I can have this limited quantity, so I’m not deprived. then I have it. Then it’s like why could I not get enough of these. Nat used to love samoas so I got him some, but he does not like them so much this year. That works for me because it means I don’t have to get any more under the guise of “Nat likes them”. Happy President’s
