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?

You've been crystal clear.  There is one definition of busy.  There's no alleged context, no shades of interpretation.

Your mistake was in not letting them insult you early on.  They're dancing now!  They're trying to come up with something!  It's hard to keep score but I think the latest is the "Oh, errands and commitments don't even "register" with me.  Drop-off/pick-ups are fun, fun, fun."  As if the definition of busy ever turned on emotions!

<<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.

If I had to, I could depending on the situation but again, I would be BUSY at that time. Sometimes things just don't work out either so it could be possible I could NOT "make it work" to do something with someone else.

<<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.>>

And? I never said waking up to watch her off makes me busy. Did I? Please show me as your quote does not say that at all.

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

See above.

<<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.

Nope, I am saying I am busy because I have something to do.

OH...I get it, you didn't read it correctly.  I said driving my kids about for the most part don't make *me* busy and you turned it into my friends don't ask me if I'm busy?    You even shouted NO ONE must ask me if I'm busy based on my comments regarding driving my kids to/from activities...that has got to be the most illogical leap you have made.  Why are you making up that NO ONE asks me if I'm busy when I clearly stated that I don't consider it being busy.    That's just a crazy leap of logic, crazy.

I don't know how it works in your world, but in my world we (friends) call, text, facebook each other to figure out meet up times and where and it's not super set in stone as you have mentioned not being able to do something at 11am because you are picking up a kid...well in *my* world, we would adjust times and presto chango....plans work.

Savcal, this was meant for you ~ (unless you're too happily busy at work, funny and convenient how that happens, lol) ~

You've been to college, you told us you got your masters, right?  You know the definition of busy.  Here's an example.  If both of us have no activities tomorrow, you are busy.  I am not busy.  You've got work.  Get it?  I know you get it, so I'm finding this all very unusual for you.  The posturing.  No one in this discussion now has fewer commitments than I during the work week, yet I'm still busy.  (And very, very few worries to so heavily taint activities.)

So why the charade?

Why do I NEED (call caps shouting and everything!) to be there?

How do I know. That would go from individual to individual and their lives. Maybe your dh is working or away on business or away with friends.

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.

If no one else could bring/pick up your child, how could you easily do something else at that time?

You've been crystal clear.  There is one definition of busy.  There's no alleged context, no shades of interpretation.

I don't know how I could be any more clearer using a universal definition.

Your mistake was in not letting them insult you early on.  They're dancing now!  They're trying to come up with something!  It's hard to keep score but I think the latest is the "Oh, errands and commitments don't even "register" with me.  Drop-off/pick-ups are fun, fun, fun."  As if the definition of busy ever turned on emotions!

Bawahhhaaa.....It all started with Marla's post on why I considered PSAT drop off/pick up to be on my list of busy things for this month. lololol. I didn't know there is a list that I need to go to, to see what is considered in life to be considered busy. lol

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

We have other drivers and cars in our house so I won't be driving to this one test, no.  Now how you get that since I am not driving this time to school and back that I don't understand the whole driving to school and back thing is a little, well....odd.  That is not sound logic on your part.

<<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. >>

OH see, I can talk to people in the car...I can make a stop on the way home to pick up things and people, drop off things and people.  If someone wanted to meet me at that time, I would suggest a different time or leave work early.

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

No, it was said that others wouldn't consider it busy, for a variety of reasons.  

<<Doing anything but nothing IS being busy.>>

Well earlier in the thread you said everyone had a different idea of busy....why are you making us go by your very limited and not logical definition?

No leaping, you are either just not getting the definition of busy or are just trying to make yourself busy now by arguing over it. 

I don't know how it works in your world, but in my world we (friends) call, text, facebook each other to figure out meet up times and where and it's not super set in stone as you have mentioned not being able to do something at 11am because you are picking up a kid...well in *my* world, we would adjust times and presto chango....plans work.   

AND.....where did I say we did NOT adjust times? Yep, NO WHERE as I NEVER even got THAT far in my posts to talk about that. Sigh.
