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?

Again, I'm not unhappy.

Forget it, PKA. Thardy evidently needs for you to be unhappy. So unhappy you must be.

What is one thing that worries you right now? Whether my daughter's injured back is strong enough for her to return to dance of if this is the end of formal classes.. that and fullylearning all my lines!

2. Does the weather by you think it is fall/winter/spring or summer? It's been in the 80s for two days- lovely but.. not very Fall-like I want sweater weather!

3. How is your calendar for October? Slow, medium, busy? Super busy -- lots of shows here at the theater for evening work - I have six performances of WIT plus of course tech rehearsals leading up to it- and immediatly as soon as WIT opens I start rehearsing another show "Circle Mirror Transformation" -- great fun but lots of coming and going!  An the girl has high school stuff to navigate- homecoming dance, rehearsals for the school play, Key club executive board meetings - all of which require a little extra shuttling... All good though -- fun stuff!

Exactly Bea, thanks. You don't stay at those things either, right? You just drop her off, correct?

I don't know what I did 'exactly" but I don't stay at rehearsals-- I do stay at performances.. and I certainly won't stay at homecoming... honestly though my work and rehearsal schedule is the busiest of our household right now.. it's momma's turn!

But will being busy make you unhappy?  That's what I don't get from some of the others here.  Marla suggested she was stressfully busy ~ again, I'm just not equating busy with stressful.   How about you?

Oh, you just proved a point. The physical driving and dropping off/picking up a child DOES make you a busy person. I was told that was just not true yesterday. Thanks :)

It doesn't make me unhappy unless again, it was something stressful.

Again, nope.

Who here has said being busy made them unhappy?  Oh, that's right. No one.

Busy can, at times, be stressful. But stressful does not equate to unhappy.

Actually, no. I stated that I believe ONE additional pickup/dropoff doesn't make for "busy".  multiple ones? Especially multiple ones that are out of the norm?  That could make for "busy".
