    I am busy because of work I guess - my working days feel so very busy indeed. It's rushing to school, then work, then having to keep to a strict schedule at work, rushing to daycare before it closes, coming home, dinner, bath and bed for DD... washing, etc... that needs doing. THAT is a rush.

    But my days off? Stuff that. Today is a day off. I took my birds to the avian vet. Now I'm here bludging.

    I have friends who are *booked* months in advance. You have to pre-determine if you want to see them or not to even be considered for a visit. I could never live my life like that. I don't like that level of organisation, or even just the obligation. I'd rather just do what I feel like on my days off... I even feel annoyed if I've got an appointment, because it means I HAVE to be somewhere, do something.

    Slow, I get exhausted by too much social interaction lol. I'm a housewife and love getting out and about, but too much overwhelms me a bit

    A lot slower than I'd like. I try to get out of the house at least once a day, do housework and work 1 day a week. I used to be much busier but I've lost motivation over the last few months. I spend way too much time on the lounge with the laptop.

    I honestly don't know! I go out but to things that help calm my mind as opposed to feeling rushed. I have all of the associated events that come with being a mum, but we're a sit-down-to-a-hot-dinner every night kinda family. So probably somewhere in the middle.

    Ive given up trying to get work and be busy.

    Im a sahm. I have three difficult boys and I take care of them the house and my husband and thats it! It takes a lot of pressure off and I love only having to focus on my family, but in saying that its also because im lazy and not a great multitasker.

    I'd say we're medium paced. I'd like to be slow! I get anxious easily and on my work days I often feel like blowing a gasket.

    Slow and steady in our house, although I still feel busy.

    I don't commit myself to things unless it is necessary because I hate rushing about.

    Somewhere in the middle...I only work 1 day a week, have 1 day to myself & dd2 is home 3 days with me. I do have activities every morning including reading at school but we have every afternoon at home until pickup. However after school is hectic with homework, swimming, taekwondo & soccer practice. Sat mornings are soccer & ballet but every Sunday is free.

    I'm fast! I love being busy!!

    DH and I own a business that means DH works 6-7 days a week so I have the kids 24/7. I also work 3 days a week, and go to the gym and socialise a lot. My DD does ballet once a week and 2-3 play dates a week. During the weekend I HATE staying home and doing nothing! We usually go visiting/to the park/shopping whatever takes our fancy to get out and about!
