    I guess I'm a busy person. With 3 kids, work and pets I keep busy. I also do a lot at the girls' school.

    There's an old saying "if you want something done give it to a busy person." I tend to be someone who gets a lot done without it being big deal so I do take on more than some and not as much as others.

    I like being busy. A day is good if I've had an activity morning and afternoon. And it I'm home I count productivity as numbers of dishes cooked, laundry loads done and housework finished. Getting to sit down and eat is considered a luxury here much to my Dhs annoyance. The only time I sit is when the girls nap at midday for 1.5-3hrs and I fold laundry or do some filing for the first hour. Then the rest of the time is mine to eat/sleep/read/ watch tv.

    I finished work 4wks ish before dd1s EDD (nightmare) and 1.5wks before dd2s EDD (great).

    Whilst I accept that there are less busy ppl, it drives me bonkers.

    Agree, I am the same. I set myself tasks during the day and time to complete them, when I'm home. I never relax, I don't sleep a lot either. I'm always go go go

    I am a busy person from 430am Monday to 12pm Saturday. But It's out of nessessery.

    I am a Personal Trainer & run my own business, plus I work at Genesis & another privately owned gym. I also have a 3yo who is only at school 2 days a week and is being evaluated for OCD. ADD & AS.. Our days are busy & super structured because we need the $.

    From midday on Sat to About 4pm Sunday, I honestly move at snail pace

    I'd love nothing more then to cruz along everyday day & casually train peeps in my backyard, but Im not at that point yet.

    I'm a chronic joiner, and when I join something (hockey, book club, church etc) I always put my hand up for jobs that need doing. I think it is partly cos it is hard for me to watch someone doing a crap job and thinking 'hmm I would do it different' (meaning 'better' )

    DH and I love traveling and have never taken leave and not gone overseas. Even on holidays we do lots of stuff, I've never been to Asia or Fiji or done a holiday which was just sitting by the pool etc. It sounds so enticing, but I just know I would get ants in my pants.

    I finished work last Friday in preparation for this baby, due in 6 weeks. I have no idea WTF to do all day! I'm bored already...
    Yep I'm bored! I'm a 'busy' person. My baby is 6 weeks old and I hate it. I don't think I could tell df that or my family that would crush them certainly isnt what looking at mums in the supermarket make it look like lol. All she does is sleep, poop and eat. It's hard! I can't wait to go back to work and uni. I would love to volunteer for the disabled & how do parents fit in exercise with kids? Omg. Lol

    At the moment I am fast living and I hate it
    I went back to working fulltime this year(after almost 6 years of casual/part time). I see dd for 3 hours a night during the week (she is asleep when I leave for work), which is spent doing homework, dinner, bath and bed and usually once a week an afternoon is spent at one of her 3 specialists getting checkups or physio. Weekends are catching up on housework, shopping and then whatever else needs to be done!
    4 weeks till holidays ... I will be back to 3 days a week after that!

    Definitely as slow as I can be with 4 kids.
    Currently I have 2 days a week with just my newby and I catch up on washing. Leaving the house is a pain ATM.

    I like being busy but I'm a homebody. Sport, work, etc are not my things. I try to take the kids out somewhere or have a play date for 4 out of the 5 days DH works and that includes playgroup twice a week. I am always on the go doing housework or cooking. I love sitting on my bum once the kids are in bed though.

    I'd say I am somewhere in the middle, and more so since I returned to work part-time. I'm also very social so I spend a fair bit of time catching up with people but if I ever want to chill, I'll just cut that back.
