Mark made 1000 marshmallows on Sunday.
He also baked about 5000 cookies on Monday. He usually gives an update with a precise count – which he did at 4515 – but then he lost count.
I wrapped 400 brownies in 2.45 hours Monday night. I never wrapped that many brownies in one siting before. Here’s a little piece of trivia for your Wednesday evening: I’m the only person who has ever wrapped the brownies. Every single brownie that has gone out in nearly 4 years was wrapped by me.
I tied 260 ribbons so far this week with probably 130 more to go before the week is over.
I assembled 100 gift boxes today. It took me about 4 hrs. I cut and folded all the paper and cut ribbon before hand to make it go more like an assembly line. I have about 120 more boxes to assemble tomorrow and Friday.
Mark and I were remembering our first holiday (which you can find in the archives if you were so inclined to read about such things) and we laughed at how freaked out we were. Our websites weren’t even open for online orders! We were just focusing on a few large corporate orders and we didn’t do nearly as many holiday markets, but we were so sleep deprived and completely overwhelmed.
I guess we got faster. I’m glad we can laugh at those olden days now.
