Just Another Quiet Saturday?

Ya, right! But honestly, I like the noise and organized chaos that is our weekends. The only problem is it can trigger fibrofog and even headaches. I woke up three times this morning. At 8:30 the alarm went off to take pills. Then at 9:30 the canine alarm went off to feed her and her …
