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?

None of my kids' schools are more than 10 miles away, either. They are just more than one.

Can't your dh drive to one of these places or do you only have one car?

That's nice. Everyone's "busy" is different. I consider running kids around during the weekend, on top of everything else, being busy. I might have to do food shopping, a christening and swim party on Sunday. That would be considered "busy" also.  </span></strong></p>

Food shopping wouldn't register with me. That's a routine, normal activity. As is exercise, and (I think) religion class.  Things that make me "busy" are things that are out of the ordinary, especially things that are extremely time consuming.

Gotcha. One of mine is 5 mins away and the other is 10 mins. away (from home with no traffic but usually takes me 10 and 15 mins from work). 

Friday is another busy day. Working, picking up from swim practice (I volunteer on Fridays), grabbin something to eat and then back to the school for a football game. I consider all that busy. NOT stressful, but busy.

And just to further the conversation (and my definition of busy), i was telling dh at dinner at how glad I was that we weren't "busy" this weekend.  However, this "not busy" weekend involves Zumba, the farmer's market, bowling for The Boy, a haircut, housework, meal planning, grocery shopping, and a funeral.  Oh, and I plan to bring a pile of work home.

So you only consider being out of town busy then?

I don't know if I could survive marching season this year if she didn't have her license ...
