I haven’t been tracking the points for a while (-5 Martha points) because I’ve been a little distracted by a few things. After the Situation Under the Refrigerator, I am humbly sitting at –2 Martha Points.
The fundraiser (+10 Martha Points) has been an awful lot of incredibly fun and rewarding work, and then the Pumpkin War (-5 Martha Points with a -3 Karma Point rider) has been taking up a lot of attention too.
I’ve managed to get a fair amount of holiday decorating done (+6 Martha Points) but at the expense of my house upkeep (-6 Martha Points) which necessitating me outsourcing some of those activities (-8 Martha Points but with a +5 Economic Stimulus credit).
Report cards have arrived and the kids are all doing well (no Martha Points for this activity but there is a Postitive-Parenting-Warm-and-Fuzzy), and although they’re not with us for Halloween, they’ve decided they’re all too old for that stuff anyway ( free nostalgic sorrow gift with purchase).
Thanksgiving will be here in the blink of an eye, but I don’t decorate for this holiday beyond letting the uncarved pumpkins hang around (-4 Martha Points). Dinner will be at my house for the first time since Himself and I started seeing each other (+10 Martha Points) but since there is a small crowd this year, I’m not going to roast a whole turkey (-5 Martha Points, with a 30% chance of familial thunderstorms).
So if I update the register here, I see that I’m at -7 Martha Points.
Maybe I should can something.
I have no idea how to do that, or even what to can.
I’ve got marshmallows in the pantry.
Do you can marshmallows?
