I love when I come across valuable information that I can actually use. Have you ever wondered how many times you really should be visiting your parents and your in-laws? Saturday's paper had an article about the Mom-o-meter that helps you determine how often you are
Here are the rules.
Start with 2.
If you live less than 2 hours from your parents, add 6.
If you live 2-4 hours away, add 2.
If you live more than 4 hours away, but in the US, add 0.
If you live overseas, subtract 1.5.
If you have two or more children younger than 5, and you have to take them on a plane, subtract 2.
If one or both of your parents make you nuts and you're pretty sure it's their fault, subtract 1.
If everyone tells you your parents are terrific, add 1.
Your final score is the number of visits per year you should make...at a minimum.
Are you left with a negative number? Your score is ZERO!
What is your score?
