Not much to say, well actually there is a lot I could say but I won't because let's be honest, I could make a career out of being angsty and ragey.  It's just who I am.  R has soccer tomorrow, looking forward to that.  He also has practices on monday nights so I'm trying to find meals that are fast and easy so that he can eat before he goes and then just have a snack when he gets home.  It should be doable as long as I don't fall off the meal planning track. 

Ever felt like you are trying to keep you head above water but you keep getting dragged under and getting a few mouthfuls of water?  Yeah, that's me this month.  I haven't drowned yet though.  October, you can f*ck off any time now. Never have I am been so looking forward to Halloween.  Until next week!
