The Holiday’s are here and with that comes added stress, emotions, and crazy days. I haven’t even mentioned all the yummy foods your neighbors, co-workers, clients, friends and family all share with you. Then you have Thanksgiving dinner and some families have multiple Thanksgiving dinners. Then comes Christmas and before you know it the pants are tight.
