    @Booknerd:  OK, I voted for 2 week long pacts and no point system. Basically, both decisions were based on it being easier for the pact-runner. Once a week is GREAT but the times where it’s extended a bit have been good too. I think a month at a time is a hard commitment and we’ll all fail at some point. The point system would be fun, but I think that’s going to be a huge time suck for you with no real benefit. 

    If you’re just looking for a more interactive aspect, maybe we could nominate fellow pact-keepers for prizes? Like based on good advice we saw them give, or that they made us laugh… etc?

    I think 1 or 2 weeks is fine, but I agree with Lia the points being tracked would be a time suck for you. We don’t want you to go crazy! ๐Ÿ˜›

    I think month-long pacts would be really good and really helpful for those of us who have trouble bringing it up all the time!

    I think two weeks is good! I feel like most of us check in pretty regularly anyway, so as long as it’s staying current, it seems like less work! I also don’t really feel like it’s THAT serious, so even if someone broke it, they could just pick back up again. NBD ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ok since we’re not on the Pact right now I don’t feel about about the following hilarious conversation:

    Me: So did you look up “push present”?

    Him: Yes. Crazy nonsense.

    Me: Crazy?! I’m supposed to push your kid out of my vagina and you can’t buy me a present?

    Him: You’re already getting a ring!

    Me: That’s true. Do you want an engagement ring? That would only be fair, right?

    Him: I’m getting a wedding ring!

    Me: So am I! I get two rings. 

    Him: Oh… right.

    Me: Well, I’ll get you a present on our wedding day too.

    Him: Oh nice. So is that my “shove present”? 

    Me: You’re an asshole.

    You guys!!!! The Pact apparently meant more than I thought. Now that we’re on a break I can’t stop freaking talking to him about our wedding/babies/marriage! ACK!

    When are we starting again?
