Idiom of the Week – Week 44

Each week of 2017 we present an English idiom.

“to have a lot on (one’s) plate”: to have a lot to do; viel zu tun haben

Example 1:  You could ask Frank to help you, but I think he’s got a lot on his plate at the moment.

Example 2:  It seems that everyone has too much on their plates right now. Hopefully things will quiet down next month.
