Weekend Winks – R ‘n’ R Style

Still in a recovery mode from the stomach flu, my Nashville weekend was tame compared to my typical shenanigans.

My Skinny Pirate substitution for the weekend.

As I found myself shooting back the pink stuff, my dad was able to carry on the family tradition of touchdown moonshine shots on college game day.

Family Tradition.

Somebody had to keep tradition alive as our Iowa Hawkeyes won 45-29…good weekend to be sick, eh?

In lieu of my typical Saturday tailgating treats, I knew I was almost fully recovered when cookie dough was my snack of choice.

Snacking on

Snack attack.

While perusing social media in between college football games, I came across the most loving gesture that a man could do for his girl…



While it’s no surprise that this vino loving gal is cray cray over cats, it seems as if my nephew Prince B is also taking a shine to all things feline.

Handsomest cat on the planet...but don't you dare tell Ted I said that. (Don't tell Ted I said that)

Speaking of the furry little love of my life, Teddy had a small little sore (we’re talking barely visible) on his ear that he managed to turn into a full on gaping wound yesterday, as he couldn’t leave it alone.

Ear infection?

Such a drama king.

After freaking the fuck out about it (and emailing his vet), I hunkered down on the couch and hovered over him with a watchful eye (like any crazy good cat mom would do).

Watchful eye on the couch.

You scratch, you die.

I wanted to be sure to get all of the happy snuggling in before I risked my life by lassoing a cone around my bear (which forces him to walk backward AND makes it impossible not to get kernels of his $60 food stuck in crevices – how embarrassing).

Paybacks are going to be such a bitch.

Here’s hoping my eyes aren’t clawed out by the end of this week…

    Aw poor kitty. My dog had to endure the cone. Wine in the shower. I like that idea.

    LOVE the spatula!
    Raising that nephew right, future krazy kat man!
    OUCH for Mr Ted 😦 I see why he got koned.
    To keep his food from getting stuck you should hand feed him 1 piece at a time as any krazy…er…good kat mom would do.
    Be he will heal up fine, he has a good servant…er…mommy πŸ˜‰

    • Teddy is in love with you for suggesting he be hand fed kernel by kernel. And so I give in! I had to because I can’t help but laugh at him as he motors around the mini manse backward…! Krazy Kat man is in the making thanks to Auntie CBXB!

  6. I hope you are starting to feel better. Poor, sweet Teddy, the look on his face is so sad! I hope he is adjusting to his cone.

    • I’m having trouble adjusting to Teddy walking backward (as I can’t help but laugh). He is sly though, figuring out how to maneuver out of it every time my back is turned! And I’m feeling much better – actually craving food today. YAY! XO

    Everyone needs a R n R weekend occasionally to refuel. Sorry yours had to be post illness. But at 45 points moonshine shots woulda had you reaching for the Pepto on Sunday any way. LOL. Teddy, Teddy, Teddy……..Leave that thing alone or it’ll get infected. Now ya gotta wear the cone of shame. How ya gonna try to be the coolest cat alive wearing that thing. SMH at you. Hang in there CBXB. Next weekend has a bottle of Shine and a Bay of calorie challenged (Skinny) Pirates waiting for some Hawkeye scoring madness. Have a great week.

    • Yeah, I was pretty secretly thrilled that my Saturday wasn’t ruined with 6 shots of moonshine before 2:30pm! But I’m prepped, rested and ready for this weekend of SPs and moonshine! Oh, and Teddy is still the coolest cat, as he can somehow figure out how to wiggle his way out of that damn cone whenever I’m not around. Such a rule breaker!

    Well, the self-picked sore the width of the Grand Canyon definitely merits the cone of shame, CBXB. Teddy, you brought it on yourself. Your mom’s just being a wise cat lady. Promise! Hawkeyes got all their points out of the way last week, I’m glad to see. Big pinky swear bet on Saturday with my Terps! πŸ˜‰

  9. Poor kitty. I don’t know who to feel sorrier for, you with your stomach flu it Ted E with his horrid cone. πŸ™‚

    Oh no, not the cone of shame! Don’t you just hate the way they look at you? Hope it’s better soon.

Holla at me!
