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, so we can only use YOUR definition?

There are many out-of-the ordinary things that are not out of town that make my life busy - but the ones in October just happen to be out of town ones.

Why do you consider going to the high school football game busy?</p>

I have to admit, I'd add that into my "things that make me busy" list because this year I"m not going to any except Senior Night.  Sincce I've been stuck inside the concession stand for every home football game for 3 years, I'm relishing not having to do that this year and dh and I are having date night on home football game nights. Except Senior Night, which we have to go to.

I didn't say anything about stressful in my comments...and you said he was with you in your comments, I quoted them.  Again, if they have to be in two different places at the same time, why not each drive?  You have said you are doing all this driving...do you only have one car or is dh not driving?

"MY" definition is the definition from merriam-webster dictionary. Undecided

There are many out-of-the ordinary things that are not out of town that make my life busy - but the ones in October just happen to be out of town ones.  

And? So only out of town things and things that happen work do you consider being busy?

I had everything all planned out for the month, how I was going to avoid all social gatherings, send Mass cards to random people to remind them of their tragedies, go to dinner parties empty handed, and fire off fifteen salvos dissing the public school system. But now I busy, busy, busy! My husband just informed me he might want to have sex this month. I don't know how I will fit it all in!

I love your humor and can't wait for the fictional response from thardy and jams on this comment!

Well Sav, she did say earlier that we each have our own definition of busy....perhaps morty has changed her mind?

No, as I said, I would consider out-of-the-normal things to be what makes me "busy".  The month of October the things that are making me busy just happen to be out of town and work stuff.  November, december, january may be different.
