applescript help

Could some kind soul fluent in Applescript please translate the following csh-stylish statement for me?

I would like to write something like this in an applescript:

if ( date since this script was run last time is more than a week ago )
... do this
if ( this script was run today already )
... do that
... do that other

In addition, i would like to have a persistent counter which i can increment and reset (persistent across different runs of the script).
I suspect that's achieved by using a "property"?

I know it's a bit cheap to just ask here, and yes, i know you might be thinking that i should learn applescript, but i simply don't have the time, and i won't be using it often enough to justiy the time to learn it.

Many thanks in advance,

If you haven't found a way yourself yet, you might try something like this:

property lastRunDate : date "1/1/1"
property persistentCounter : 0

set currentDate to current date

if (currentDate > lastRunDate + 7 * days) then
	log "do this"
else if (short date string of currentDate is short date string of lastRunDate) then
	log "do that"
	log "do that other"
end if

set lastRunDate to currentDate
set persistentCounter to persistentCounter + 1
