    Unhappy All is, all are

    My schedule are all full on weekdays. Would you like to make it on weekends?

    1. For the above sentence, I should use "all are" because weekdays are plural. Am I right?

    2. Is "schedule" singular/countable?

    3. Is "all are" reflecting "schedule" or " weekends"?

    Thanks.

    This doesn't work. The subject is schedule, which is singular. I would say My schedule is full on weekdays. Is this a one-off meeting or something that will be repeated? This would affect whether I'd use the weekend or weekends.
