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?

No. As I said, out of the ordinary things would be in my definition of busy.  And I already mentioned several things that did not involve being out of town.

Why with you...if the kids need to be in different places at the same time, why not just take two cars?

I had everything all planned out for the month, how I was going to avoid all social gatherings, send Mass cards to random people to remind them of their tragedies, go to dinner parties empty handed, and fire off fifteen salvos dissing the public school system. But now I busy, busy, busy! My husband just informed me he might want to have sex this month. I don't know how I will fit it all in!

Before my oldest started driving, I drove about that much on a daily basis.  I didn't consider their normal activites (practices and such) to be out of the ordinary.  But then again, my kids have played sports year round for a lot of years, it just didn't start with high school so it's part of the everyday routine, not on top of the schedule to make me busy.

No. As I said, out of the ordinary things would be in my definition of busy.  And I already mentioned several things that did not involve being out of town.

"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."

These other things are at work. I am talking about being busy OUTSIDE of work.

Who said we didn't? Where did I say any of the things I mentioned are stressful things? Never, thanks.

Exactly and what will make me busy this weekend is not so much my kids normal weekend stuff, but that I have out of town guests and am hosting a dinner party as well.

Why do you consider going to the high school football game busy?
