So... haven't blogged at all since completing the Superman costume, have I?
So, first things first... I spent a few hours last night taking in the pants and shorts, as frankly, they were way too baggy! I took them in about a half-inch on each side, and I think I could've taken them in even more... but I decided I had to stop before I went too far. Besides, it'll give me something to do with it next year, before Halloween!
Krypto got to wear his collar and cape for a bit tonight... wait, I'm getting ahead of myself! KO and Krypto were treated to a day at Doggie Daycare today, so they'd be worn out tonight (and still a bit tired on Saturday, too). This was part of my plan to keep them from acting like maniacs (well, complete maniacs anyway) during Saturday's Bones & Treats (the trick-or-treating for dogs). When I brought them home, I gave them both a bath (not an easy task... neither of them are especially fond of baths), and then I rewarded them with two fairly large rawhide bones to chew on, while they wore their costumes, to start getting used to them. That worked out just fine!
So, now they're both asleep, as is Jessi... and I'm still up! But not for very much longer, I'm sure.
Here's how our weekend's looking... the day begins, as all Saturdays do, with Weight Watchers. After our meeting, we head home, and I'll grab a fresh shower before getting into costume and then getting Krypto in his cape, while Jessi gets dressed herself and dresses up KO. We will likely have a light breakfast first.
Then, we're meeting some of our dog-friends at 10:30 for the start of Bones & Treats: Paul and Bridgit (owners of Claude, another white boxer, who I believe will be dressed as a chicken), Kathy (owner of Jaeger, a fawn boxer, as well as Emily, a weiner dog), and Elyse (a weight watcher friend, with her chocolate lab Roca). We won't all go in the same car, but we will all hit each stop as a group.
We'll likely be involved with that for three or four hours, depending on traffic and how long each stop takes. Once we're done with all that, we'll make a stop at Olympic Cards & Comics so we can show off our costumes to Gabi, and I can buy the latest comics.
From there, it's back home and back into civvies! We'll probably have a late lunch then (assuming we don't eat during all that), and then I'll get started making my special low-calorie pizza for dinner (kind of a warm-up for the birthday party, which will be in another two weeks).
Sunday, believe it or not, we don't seem to have anything planned for... if the weather's decent, I'll mow the front yard, and Jessi and I may go for a bike ride.
