E is for Energy

I need to borrow a cup.

Or maybe two.

Because I am over-whelmed with boxes.

Boxes full of Girl Scout cookies that need to be sorted and packed to ship to friends who bought them from our sweet Granddaughter... The girl sold 178 boxes of cookies and she was STILL in third place in her Brownie troup.

Boxes filled with cookbooks that need to be sent out...
...and what I really want to do is sit for the rest of the morning and E njoy all the E ngaging and E ntracing and E ntertaining E posts!

So maybe what I really need today is E nergy AND a few E xtra hours in the day!

Oh, how I love Tagalongs. I don't know any Girl Scouts anymore. That's okay because I couldn't control myself if I did LOL.

No girl scouts ever come around our neighborhood anymore. It's been a long time since I've had thin mint cookies! Wishing you energy for your task ahead.

Anna said...

That is so funny! Boy, I would love to buy a box of girl scout cookies right now, I have hardly eaten!
Best wishes,
Anna
P.S.
Now I have finally learned how to link the post!

Just Jenn said...

Amen, I do second that. I arrived in Georgia yesterday even...did get upgraded to first class on my flight so, after two bloody marys and a nice breakfast, I slept all the way to Atlanta, then did a two hour shuttle to Columbus.

Seeing my mother's deterioration in three months was overwhelming. She didn't know me and I'm not sure she does yet. Her speech is unintelligible, sentences are jumbled and she makes no senses to me. Once in awhile something clear comes out. She isn't eating or drinking. Meals on wheels meals go untouched. We see the doctor tomorrow. I think she's had a stroke though she seems to have no mobility loss only speech difficulties.

I hope I can get her into assisted living before I leave Mar 10th.

Cute post! I want some Girl Scout cookies...

Jo said...

Yummy looking cookies! wonderful post Jenny, I hope you get that Energy you want!!!

5thsister said...

I bought from 2 girl scouts this year. I'm still waiting on my half a case of thin mints!

Oh, and if you find any energy could you send some my way. I am whipped but good! Even after sleeping 15 hours!

Riet said...

Good luck with the energy.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Isn't it amazing how you are packing the cookies? What about that little girl scout and her parents? I'd hand that job off!

I'm actually taking a day to catch up. I'm reading blogs and more blogs, I've written a couple blog posts (how dare there be 2 parties on 1 day tomorrow) and I may even read a real book before this day is over!

RNSANE said...

Posted "E is for Eleuthera" but, of course, again I did the Mclinky wrong so no one will be able to read it. Please send me the way I should do it - the whole format...I've tried every which way and I just don't get it. No sense in my wasting time on this Alpha-Be series, though it's wonderful, if I have to keep hassling you to post it for me.

Carol said...

This should be an 'O' post for overwhelming! Oy! Good luck!

Theresa said...

Make it easy on yourself and mail them ALL to me:) Enjoy!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Luckily I raised boys, Jenny, so I didn't have to go through this... But--I have plenty of friends who did!!!! Save me some of those mint cookies!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Exactly!!! Does this count for participating in Alphabe-Thursday? lol.

Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.

mbkatc230 said...

Now if these were at my house, my E would have to have been for Eat! Yikes, you have alot more will power than I do. There is not way a carton of tag a longs would make it to the post office. Kathy

Kimberly said...

Jenny, what are those cookbooks you are sending out?

Just Breathe said...

The person I always order from doesn't do it anymore, her daughter is out of Girl Scouts.
I missed out this year :(

mom2three said...

Yeah its girl scout cookie time...thanks for reminding me I need some! haha!

Sarah said...

Jenny, I just now found this post. Wow, that is a lot of cookies! You seem to be the energizer bunny so no doubt you'll get this done in no time. Good luck!

~Kim~ said...

I sold GS cookies when they were $1a box and they are still just as good!! I'm been dreaming of "Samoa's and Thin mints" since I ordered them long, long ago!:-)

easternsparkle said...

Wow - what a lot of work you've got there - I'm sure you'll Enjoy yourself though!!

Julie Schuler said...

Oh man, I love some Thin Mints. I didn't get any this year. I guess we don't have any scouts in the neighborhood.

laterg8r said...

love the long distance cookies :D

Linda said...

I didn't get any Girl Scout cookies this year...yet. Maybe I will see some booth sales in March! Sending you ENERGY!!!!

sissie said...

Now I'm going to have to go out and track down some girl scout cookies. I think they set up in front of the Walmart. I love thin mints and can eat a whole box by myself.
Now, doing that will give you some energy!!

hugs
Sissie

I love the Girl Scout mint cookies, but only one brownie/girl scout came to our house and my husband answered the door and got to pick. I don't even know if we'll be getting any mint cookies this year. Good luck with all the packing.

Anything Fits a Naked Man said...

Thin Mints....GET IN MY BELLY!!! E-njoyed your E-ntertaining post E-ntirely!!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I'll have 3 cups of energy.
and One box of Thin mints please!

Prim2Pink said...

Now that's a lot of cookies!
My granddaughter isn't in Girl Scouts this year, so we haven't got any cookies yet. I'm sure they will be set up in front of the stores though, so I'll get some then.
What are the cookbooks ??
Judy

Ashley Stone said...

yum! I'd be dangerous with all those cookies in my house!

Melinda Cornish said...

I did the girl scout thing with liv a couple of years ago...it was a lot of work but she loved it...what are all the cookbooks about? melinda

Darcie said...

I hope you got a little bit of that energy. Would you believe it if I told you we haven't had any little girl scouts ring our doorbell. Hopefully we will see some out and about. We always need our Girl Scout cookie fix...the year wouldn't seem right without it.

The Muse said...

E is for excellent.... because that describes Girl Scout Cookies!!

I have something for you over at my blog. stop by for a visit.

Brenda said...

Love Girl Scout cookies. The original peanut butter and thin mints same as I sold when I was a Girl Scout. You have enough energy to share, I think I could have used a little of it today.

Pondside said...

Well Jenny Matlock, I certainly enjoyed my tour around your blog! Thanks very much for your visit. I have a feeling I'll be around here on a regular basis!

Sares said...

Yummy! My favorites are the chocolate/caramel/coconut creations. I could easily sit down and eat the WHOLE box!

Just Joany said...

Hi, Jenny,
I surely hope you get E xcellent E's to help your E nergy level.

You asked on my blog if I could link to Alphabe-Thursday and I'm here to say I'd be happy to, if you can tell me how. Thanks.

Yummy...I'd take them all! Looks like EU had a good E day too!

Justine said...

That is the sole reason I'm glad neither of my girls are scouts anymore. Oy, separating all those cookies, then getting them to the right houses. Oh, blech!

Justine :o )

My name is PJ. said...

Geez Gramma, If you really wanted her to win, you'd have set her up to sell on your blog.

You need a personal assistant. Maybe an intern. They work for free........

Good E post - Exhausting!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

OH NO! Say it's not Girl Scout Cookie time again! Eeeeeeeeeek! ,-)

GardenofDaisies said...

No one came around to ask us to buy girlscout cookies this year... not even at my husbands work. OUr friends kids must all be growing up and out of the program. I guess next year we will have to go find them when they set up their table at the local store.

Cassie said...

Oh, I do love me some girl scout cookies, but I'll take the energy those sweet little scouts have any day! Oh, who am I kidding? Give me the cookies.

Dan said...

Hi! I am new to your blog, and I certainly enjoyed my first visit! Very funny! I am now one of you followers! If you get a chance, pop over to my blog sometime. I would love to have you! ~Dan~

Oh, I could use a big cup of ENERGY myself; and a few cookies!
Blessings,

Anna said...

Hello again Jenny,
I've made an extra post for you. If you would like to order earrings that suit your eight year olds, I can make something that is with a screwback finding or a clip.
I do not approve of piercing the ears of children. I do not have pierced ears myself!!
But there is a market for earrings with ear wires and posts so I do both kinds.
Please visit me again (when you get the time) at:

Best wishes

Steph said...

May I also mention that I am Envious because we can't get Girl Scout cookies here. :S :)

Hope you found the Energy you needed.
