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?

Exactly!  I'm glad we had the money for a home convenient to school and our activities.  Location, location, location.  I'd hate to live in the sticks.  It would be so "stressfully busy." Wink

Nope.  I'm an at-home parent and that's not busy.  That's at-home lite.  Very lite.  Inactive really.  You must be bored.  Sorry.

Yep, you didn't say it was stressful!  And you certainly didn't mistakenly say it was stressfully busy. Wink

So, in other words, you're saying you actually took a few minutes to think and plan before purchasing your home? Wink

You know now that's not the definition of busy, right?

40 mi every day?  Wow, that's a lot of driving and a lot of gas.  I'm sorry you have to drive so much.

I consider anything that keeps you going, busy

Good point.

You've looked forward to your daughter getting her license for a long time.  That must lift so much stress from your life.

Oh, so we can only use YOUR definition?

Her definition applies to her, your definition you...  But yesterday wasn't a busy day, was it?

Oh, Merriam Webster's definition of busy?  That makes your definition fact!  :-)
