Rima and her nut

Not many of us can say we've had the same friends through all our stages in life, so far. There are a few lucky people who connect at a very young age and don't let time, distance, change or growth tear them away from each other.

Bossy plants

Sometimes you don't always get to do what you want. Most people on a daily basis have to go through a rhythmically planned dance that usually repeats itself daily if not weekly;

F U April Fools'

It's hard to not think that the universe has a sick sense of humor. In my eyes currently today, the universe is a prankster with impeccable timing.

Stages of time

Time sure does fly by. Time is a strange point of perspective, even though I feel that time is going by quickly it also feels like it's crawling by in ways.

Sparks of inspiration

It's really quite easy to fall into the "grass is greener on the other side" mentality. A Libra myself, astrology sites and books dictate that this is one of my signs weakest traits.

Point of view

Perspective is a word that's been used a lot between Rima and I since we started this transplant process. It's especially been a key vocabulary word this past week.

Destination, collaboration

Our new trend is only posting once a week or so. I wish we had more to post about, but until the weather gets nicer and allows more outdoor activities, or the transplant happens, this is the new norm.

Neon emotions

They say there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I think there are five stages of waiting for a transplant: shock, action, bargaining, anger, and acceptance.

Ice Ice Baby

We're still waiting for the call, shocking, I know... I would be lying if I said I was not getting antsy or annoyed. Anyone in this situation I'm sure has had similar feelings.

That's not a happy face

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night and shoot out of bed because you think you either heard something or missed your alarm and are late? Well, that's been my life for the last week.

Can't stop, won't stop!

Man oh man, it's great to have my favorite buddy back with me! I have someone to talk to in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings!! Clearly I need to be entertained at all hours of the day.

The sound of twenty-four alarms

The comforting feeling of knowing that Rima is only a few feet away from me and not a thirty minute drive, is better than a fuzzy warm blanket. So far we are day two into her being home and so far so good.

The sweetness of freedom

Boy oh boy, this past week has been pretty busy for the two of us. We have some BIG news! Rima is home! After eleven and a half weeks in the hospital she was able to finally go home.

Lucky 2017

Happy 2017 everyone!! Wow, what a crazy year 2016 was for the two of us. It's strange to think that this time last year we were days away from moving Rima out to Colorado. I drove Rima out west at the start of this past January.   


It's pretty strange for us to not be posting as much as we use to. Back in Colorado or when we first got to Minneapolis we posted almost everyday. We've pulled a 180 since then.
