Starter Wife, Weather Channel, more "use what you have", and getting ready for vacation.

Some random mental lint that's accumulated over the past couple of days:

I made it through most of the two-hour premier of The Starter Wife last night in hopes of seeing something entertaining. I don't recommend it, although Joan Davis is wonderfully over the top and I find it hilarious that Pond's is a major underwriter. (Like Hollywood plastic people would use a drugstore brand.)

Our local CBS affiliate announced a partnership with The Weather Channel on Friday. As the meteorologist started talking to Jim Cantore on a satellite linkup, my first thought was "Does this mean I'll get to hear jrsonday more?".

Thursday's "use what you have" sewing project was assembling a padded cover/carrier for one of our 25-lb helium tanks. Fender has been breaking in Wednesday's pillow slipcovers and would probably give them a thumbs-up if he had opposable thumbs. I slacked off Friday, finishing the tie tabs for a large birdcage cover I started a few weeks ago. Total fabric used from my stash for the week: less than ten yards. And I have an extra swim bag in a Dora the Explorer print. Whee.

Sunday afternoon is reserved for packing and sending out one last nag-mail on needed items (confirmation of a quick online training from a couple people, one kid's immunization dates) for day camp so I can eat ice cream and screw around on Sunday night before getting plenty of sleep before our airport shuttle pickup window of 0800-0815 on Monday morning. We'll be eating lunch in Denver, weather in Dallas permitting an on-time departure.

Yay vacation.
