The Loss of my Furry Kid.

On February 17th, Grizzley went to the Big Fire Hydrant in the Sky.  He was almost 13 years old when he passed away.  He was my oldest furry child, listening ear and confidant.  He has always been there through mine and Don's life.  When Don and I were chatting on the internet before we started dating, he asked me for suggestions for naming his new dog.  I asked him for a description on how the dog looked.  He described him to me and I gave him a few name suggestions.  Grizzley was one of them.  Don and I chatted online a few months before we started dating.  He called me that following Sunday and he told that he found a name for his dog and he picked Grizzley.  When Don and I started dated he decided to have me meet his parents.  He had already met my parents and my brothers on our dates.  When I arrived at his parents' house, Grizzley barked once and I was his forever, through that whole day he was my shadow.  Don told me that of all the girls he dated and brought home to meet his family, Grizzley would growl and nip at them.  Grizzley lived with Don's parents when we got married and lived in Ogden and Tooele.  When we built our house in Stockton, he moved right in with us.  Our family was complete.  Copper came along, Don wanted a hunting dog. We found him at Sportsmen's Warehouse in Orem on the way home from a family reunion.  Copper was a big clumsy Coon Hound.  Grizzley the Alpha Dog taught him how things ran around the house.  Copper went to heaven and Grizzley was only Dog Kid.  He suffered through cats and learned to tolerate them, but the cat couldn't tolerate him. I think the day that Grizzley left the cats had a party.  Maggie, our neighbor's dog goes in our backyard looking for Grizzley.  I've seen her sit on the back porch waiting for him to come out.  So Don and I aren't the only ones that are sad by this loss.  Both families are hurt by this.  My dad lost his walking buddy, he loved taking Grizzley walking when my parents would come to Stockton to see us.  My mother-in-law lost someone to share her poppy seed muffin with in the morning, even though she hasn't shared with him in awhile.  I lost my listening ear for my rants, art and craft ideas and my thoughts.  I also lost my TV Buddy, he loved to watch Lost with me, he loved to lay on the couch with me .  Poor Don has to listen to all that now. Don lost his shadow while working in the yard.  I hope that him and Copper are getting along in heaven.  They'll both be missed and I hope to see them again.

When It Rains It Pours.....

All I can say is Wow, this has been a busy but interesting first three months of 2011.  January was a pretty busy month between work, family (the Wilde-side and the West-side) and church.  My Sunbeams from 2010 graduated and they move to an older class. The first week without my boys was tough, they looked so grown up in the older class. I was actually kind of thankful that my kids didn't combine Sharks or Godzilla in the lesson.  My new Sunbeams class I only had three kids, two boys and one girl, I got to know them very well. Febuary came a new job and saying good-bye to my friends at my old job. I stil keep in contact with my friends from my old job and have gone out to lunch with them a few times since and send emails back and forth.  Now, with the new job I had to make new friends, which I think I make friends very easily. Its nice being back in the Pharmacy Technician field again, I have missed it tons.  I thought that I have maybeforgot most of the Pharmacy stuff, but it's like riding a bike. 
March was also a hectic month....again still learn the new job.  Then, the Wildebunch had a new arrival Brendon Zander Wilde on March 20, 2011 and let's face it he his going to be a chick magnet when he grows up.  With Mike helping bring a new life into the world, I was worried, just kidding Little Brother. I mean, I had no worries with Brittney (Mike's wife).  I am proud to say I the MOST cutest neices and nephews EVER, the Wilde's and the West's Sides.  On the Westside, Grandma Brown (Don's Grandmother) had a heart attack and the doctor found clots in her heart and fluid in her lungs.  When she was in the hospital I visited her everyday, when she came out Don and I spent the night watching over her. I think bugged my mother-in-law Nadine by cleaning Grandma's house top to bottom.....I was BORED, plus I am just a tad bit OCD.  Also with my National Pharm Tech License I had to cram 20 hours of Continuing Education in 1 week, I do that every two years I wait till the last minute and cram CE's so I can renew. I always think okay I'll start doing mine earlier so I don't have to rush and cram, then time goes by and I forget, then it's cramming time.   With church I got released from the Sunbeams and got put in the Nursery, which I love....who doesn't want to play with toys and eat goldfish for two hours.

The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri

I love watching Independent Movies and The Namesake is one of my favorites.  I watched the movie several times and I loved it every time. The acting is awesome and it stars one my favorite actors Kal Penn.  I think I have seen almost every movie and tv show he has been in from Harold and Kumar to House he is an awesome talent.  All the actors in The Namesake are great and play the characters very well.  

Awhile back I was amazed that the movie was based on a novel by the same name.  I bought the book and started to read it off and on.  I would usually stop because of another book that would spark my interest.  Recently, I made is a goal to finish the book before I found another book.  To be honest the book is very hard to get started, you have to get use to how the characters feel and their personality.  But, throughout the book I would fall in love with these characters and would hope they completed their ordeal.  The Namesake is about this Family who moves from Calcutta, India to Cambridge, MA.  The parents are trying to adjust with life in America.  When the children are born they are automatically brought up in the American way of life.  The oldest son, Gogol was named after one of his father's favorite authors and the name has another meaning throughout the book. Gogol is ashamed of his name and his family because they are most like the "norm" in America.  Throughout Gogol's life his is made fun of and taunted because of his name.  The story mainly focus' around Gogol.  All throughout Gogol's father tries to explain the name to Gogol, but its always not the right time or he's too young to understand the meaning.   Gogol goes to college and decides to change his name to Nikhil and this disappoints his parents.  He starts dating American Girls, Smoking and doing things that his parents would never approve of.  He later learns that his father dies in Ohio while working on a project for his research and Gogol has to go to Ohio to identify his father's body.  When he comes back to Cambridge, MA he morns with his mother and his younger sister.  Gogol starts to respecting his heritage and is there for his mother.  Later on, he meets up with a childhood friend that her parents are good friends with Gogol's parents.  They're automatically attracted to each other and they get married.  Gogol finds out why his father named him Gogol and the legacy behind the name.
