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?

I don't know...some kids are active and involved in many activites and lessons.  Other kids come home and do nothing...some are in between.  I wouldn't ever consider taking my kids to school/activities/lessons a waste...but ymmv of course.

I am genuinely sorry that both thardy and jams seem to have lost their jobs recently but I think they are putting a good positive spin on the situation.  Attitude about these types of things is always important.

Aha, Well, it's already been established that your "definition" of busy is really a non-definition.  The phrase you were looking for is "not routine."  Not routine. 

And unlike Morty, your daughter's marching contests do make you feel "Crazy Busy,"  because you said so.  So again you introduced the crazy part of it all.  Morty, Jamblessed and I are quite happy with our schedules.  Sorry you are not.

Did I indicate I was unhappy with my busyness?  If you misinterpreted my words to mean so, then let me correct the misunderstanding.  October is a crazy busy month.  But every bit of crazy and busy is worth it and does not make me unhappy.

Yes, you did say you could hardly narrow down your worries to just one in the same breath as the "Crazy Busy" month unfortunately smack dab in the middle of marching season.  That sounds unhappy to me.

Ah, see, you're misinterpreting again.  My worries that I can't narrow down aren't related to the crazy busyness.    I don't "worry" about marching season or about the logistical craziness.  The worries are something entirely different.

My bad.  I didn't realize your unhappiness stems only from not really being able to narrow down your worries to just one.  I guess that's preferable?  I wouldn't know.

I will state AGAIN. I am not unhappy. I'm worried about some things.  But that isn't making me generally unhappy.

I wonder if anyone was ever asked, are you busy today? 

This would be my answer today--yes, very. First I have work, then I will be going to my dd's swim meet and then immediately following there is open school night so I will be there until 9pm. No real "free" time today to do other things. 

PSAT Saturday it would be--yes, but have some free time if you need me. In the morning someone will be dropping off/picking up the girls from swim practice (even though if I don't physically drive them, I do wake up at 5:15am to make sure she gets out the door), then there will be a drop off and pick up for the PSAT. The Fall Festival is from xx to xx and I might be volunteering so I can let you know what time I will be leaving from that. I might squeeze in some food shopping that day also but let me know what time you are interested in, in meeting up.

Well that's odd since Morty said the opposite in her response, she wished the month was over already.
