1. What is one thing that worries you right now?

2. Does the weather by you think it is fall/winter/spring or summer?

3. How is your calendar for October? Slow, medium, busy?

Busy to me would be (on top of normal regular stuff) a 3-day out-of-state trip.  Or two day-long out-of-town contests to attend.  And, on top of regular work stuff, interviewing for two open positions and taking on part of the duties of a resigning employee, and implementing two new programs. 

That's nice. Everyone's "busy" is different. I consider running kids around during the weekend, on top of everything else, being busy. I might have to do food shopping, a christening and swim party on Sunday. That would be considered "busy" also.

Right? I drive about 40 miles a day just shuffling kids back and forth to school and other places.

Sorry to hear things are so far away for you. I am lucky everything is right around me but it still keeps me busy.

That's a bummer the school is so far away that it makes your life so busy.

I guess my days being an at home parent qualify as busy because I drive kids places and shop for food.

Even if you have two kids that need to be at two different places at the same time?

It seems like a silly thing to be stressfully busy about. 

Again, WHERE did I say it was stressful? Being busy does NOT mean it has to be stressful and I never said I found it stressful, UNLESS I needed to be in both places at the same time.

I don't know, you keep mentioning your kids activities as if they were your own, it certainly doesn't sound like everything is right around you if you have to drive and pick up all the time.  Does she not have friends that you can carpool with?

School is 10 mins away (as I said before it is not far away).

Grocery shopping also doesn't hit my radar as to being busy, that is a normal weekly thing or biweekly lately.  Not a big deal to make a busy list...but the grocery store is right around the corner.  :)

I consider anything that keeps you going, busy, yes. I am not busy now since I am sitting and relaxing for the night. I will be busy tomorrow with work, swim meet, open school night. Being out of the house for 12 hours.

I'm thankful then that the school arranged it so nicely for us, even so...it wouldn't be a big deal to run him up there and back. He has asked to wait to take the sat later in the year so he can drive to/from it on his own.
