    If you've been cuddly with 60 all year, PEAK is gonna feel like a let-down.

    The worst part for me is November and early December.
    When my area is still to spread out to utilize a helper and they still give me one.

    I got the memo about 2 weeks ago.

    Have cleaned gutters, mulched leaves, prepped flower beds, and did fall house cleaning and stock up on extras for Thanksgiving dinner.

    Have to do my part to keep home environment as stress free as possible so my guys can go through the crazies of peak.

    So did we and it went very smooth last year.

    Prepare for worst case and when the best happens we are most pleasantly surprised.
