Last night as I was doing a little more in the dungeon, I knocked my scale on the floor. The little thing where you plug in the ac adapter came loose. It didn't occur to me to check for a battery compartment until after I had ordered another one. Oh, well, I did need a backup, but we didn't need another expense going into the fall shows. We are already a thousand in the hole. But we've been here before and made it through. I just keep remembering that one of the most popular sellers on the circuit told me that she had to live off of her credit card for 5 years. We're 4 years in. Plus, we ordered such large quantities of some of our supplies, that we won't need to do that for another couple of years - I hope.

Word of the day:
Friday of the Twenty-first week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Monica (332-387)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 25:1-13.

Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones, when taking their lamps, brought no oil with them, but the wise brought flasks of oil with their lamps. Since the bridegroom was long delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight, there was a cry, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!' Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the wise ones replied, 'No, for there may not be enough for us and you. Go instead to the merchants and buy some for yourselves.' While they went off to buy it, the bridegroom came and those who were ready went into the wedding feast with him. Then the door was locked. Afterwards the other virgins came and said, 'Lord, Lord, open the door for us!' But he said in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, I do not know you.' Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
