    vanyeu,

    I wonder if the idiom you're talking about is "in full swing."

    < in full swing >
    having reached a very lively level:
    - When we arrived the party was already in full swing.

    I know what she is saying. I'm trying to understand why the dictionary explanation doesn't seem clear to the poster.
