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?

Oh now we're back to the whohasmorefriendsandabettersociallife TVC.  Gotcha.

BAER. Look at the big picture. If someone asked you if you were busy at those times, you would say yes. It sounds from PKA's posts that NO ONE must (unless she would like to correct me) ask her if she is busy to know that she IS busy. Sigh.....

That's nice but anything that you are doing something and NEED to be there is considered being busy. If you can not do something else at that time, you are busy.

The next fluff questions must include whether English is a second language.  So much foolish posturing going on.

Me either, I don't really consider it a big deal but clearly the distance and effort make others busy.

<<nd neither did I. It was ONE of the things on my list for the month. >>

It's not on my list for the month, lol...it's on my kids.   I'm not taking the test and I'm not sitting there watching him take the test, I won't even drop off or pick up for the test so really...its not even an issue for me.  I find it curious that a kid taking a test makes it busy for the parent.  Whatever.

So you really don't understant that because YOU won't be dropping off/picking up. Gotcha. Thanks for clearing that up.

<<You are still busy doing that.>>

Not really, unless you call me driving home....busy?  Do you consider yourself busy when you drive to/from work?

Yes I do because I can not doing anything else at that particular time. I will be busy from the time I leave work today to the time I get to the high school so if someone asked me to meet them at that time, I would have to say I am busy. 

<Again, never said that. It was a list of ALL things for the month.>>

OF course not...if you read the comments, I was specifically talking about *me*, I even highlighted *me* a couple of times in that thread so you could notice that I was talking about *me* saying things.  *ME*  *ME*

Again, I was told that what I had on my list did not qualify for being busy. 

<<I just did a good job of choosing a great area to live in that is close to everything. Having kids still make me busy no matter how close their schools or activities are though. >>

I'm more of a mind that it makes the kids busy, not the parents but hey....ymmv.  Now the events of the kids that I attend, those make me busy because I'm there not just picking up or dropping off.  

Doing anything but nothing IS being busy.

Oh and if you keep splitting up my comments, you lose quite a bit of context.

Nope.

I don't know how much clearer I can possibly get. lol

Sigh...DOING SOMETHING is WHAT makes someone busy. 

busy adjective \ˈbi-zē\

: actively doing something

: full of activity or work

: full of people or things

<<If someone asked me if I could do something at 11am and I will be picking up/dropping off my child at that time, then, yes, I would be busy at that time. >>

OH, I would adjust to make it work...either that or dh would pick up/drop off.  I find it odd given your claim that you do lots of social things with your friends that you couldn't make a situation like this work instead of saying you were busy.

<<You said yourself that you don't even drive your dd to swimming but just getting up makes you busy?

No, I did not say that. >>

Yes you did, you said:  <<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.>>

So...waking up at 5.15 am makes you busy?

<<I guess you don't get many people calling you to see what you are doing to get together with them. Shrug.>>

Oh Morty, no need to make up things.  Remember, I'm not the one saying I'm busy becasue I have to pick up a kid, lol.

Why do I NEED (call caps shouting and everything!) to be there?  I could easily do something else at that time, what's the big deal...for me at least the high school is close and it's not a big deal.
