I’m a mess I have fallen apart and I need help!  I must pull myself together, I have a show this weekend!  I have lots to do and I am a mess!   I just wanted to get a new look for a new year, Okay I guess I wanted a total body transformation and now what??

Look at my fingers.

I know what your thinking, GROSS!!

She really needs to pull it together! 

Thankfully I have help, you remember St. David?  He not only can change a tire in the worst imaginable conditions, he can figure out a puzzle better than anyone I know.

He will have this ole girl together before you know it!

And that’s a good thing since Thursday we will be heading out for the first show of the year!
