at the quilt store to check on a class you see the most fabulous piece of fabric you ever saw in your quilting life. would you use the $10 for the fabric and try to find something in the fridge to make for dinner or would you carefully put it back and walk slowly and tearfully away taking the $10 to buy the food you planned for dinner?

What a quandry! In my case, I would have taken my diabetic medicine before I left the house and I then must begin eating within 1 hour. I don't have a quilt shop anywhere around here so it would mean a trip to Joann's, which is about 15-20 minutes away, so that means I couldn't eat within an hour but the meds would still be working and my sugar level would plunge and would be way low and I could be in a world of trouble. MAYBE, I would have time to quickly check on the class, but I would have to continue on to supper.

HOWEVER, when I got home I would raid the "bills to be paid" folder, rob Peter to pay Paul until next payday, and go buy that fabric tomorrow!

(Just don't do this too often, or you'll be in a world of trouble of a different kind!)

I can well afford to miss a meal or two, the size of my rear end tells me that. But the chance to get a piece of fabric that I'll probably never see again is priceless!!
