    After last night I'm calling myself "Fox Chaser."

    The foxes around here like to tease my dog on the opposite side of the fence... in the middle of the night. The one last night was as big as my dog! It won't go away until I shine my Maglite in its eyes. I've tried shaking a rug at it, but running toward it with the Maglite seems to work the best.

    I am Grammie and retired nurse.
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    DH and my two boys called me the "Governor", because I handled the family finances, so any major purchases had to cleared by me. Both boys are grown and out of the house, but they still call me the Governor (and mom). DH call me "sweets". Our 4 legged girls know me as mama.
    Friends are the most important ingredient in the recipe of life.

    I am Mother when I am being strict with my girls, Honey from my DH, but I am the Queen when we shop. One day many years ago, I thought I had put my wallet in my purse and went to a quilt store with my husband. As I got ready to pay, I realized I had not brought my wallet with me. So I jokingly turned around and told him he would have to pay as "the Queen does not carry money." The cashier just burst out laughing. Ever since then, whenever we go shopping together, my DH will ask in a conversational voice, "Does the Queen need money?" or "Will you be needing money your Majesty?" as he pulls out his wallet. lol

    I am "the source of all goodies" ( 2cats, 2dogs), "Kitchen magician" (I can walk into an "empty" kitchen and make food, which translates to there is nothing DH can put in the microwave), "Momguy" to all of DD's friends, "Sir" to strangers who call on the phone (Women in my family have very deep voices), and "Keeper of the gravy secret" (since I seem to be the only family member who can do it without lumps). I can live with it.

    I am the Guardian of the Language. My siblings still call me and ask me if something sounds right or is grammatically correct. My kids and husband rely on me to edit any and everything they write.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    alises, given to me over the years by family: momzilla, the unamommer, ghengismom, attila the mom, the mominator, chief cook and dog washer, and the grammazon. most of these were in jest, by my youngest daughter--but the best ones, right now, are from the grand toddlers: ammah, or gamma.

    My nickname in my immediate family is "Blue" (long story) and when my niece and nephew were little they were taught to call me "Auntie Blue". That's cute, but my absolute favorite was when they were too little to pronounce it right, it came out as "Annie Boo", which I just LOVED. That was the best "title" I've ever had - if I ever start up my own business I want to use that name in it, somehow.

    Guess I am "passenger" as I often am wakened early to "ride" to work on the phone with my doctor daughter at 6:30a.m. I just roll over and go back to sleep 20 minutes later. Love these sharing times.

    Hard Core Enforcer! I am very good at discipline with my 'Grands'. They think I'm really 'nice' or that I 'won't do anything' if they step out of line. I'm so good at quiet discipline that they don't even know when they're being disciplined!

    Most of my rules are about safety and respect, and I don't just preach them, I practice them.

    They rarely misbehave around me. Of course, if they were with me 24 x 7 that might be very different.

    I am, however, considered a 'manners and grammar nut'! Guilty as charged.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Excuse me here - I have to let my dog out--------She is 13 years old - feisty bugger. She can't jump on the bed anymore, so she gets a treat and walks up the steps and is very happy, thank you very much!!!--------------Dog barking - excuse me-------------Good Grief! Been raining all day - wet feet, wipe them off - follow her and wipe up the drips behind her. I want to work on a quilt that I have to get done by Christmas - She knows it - she won't let me sit for much more than five minutes, give or take a minute. Her name is Bess. I love her dearly. Edie

    I would call myself the cat whisperer. If you need to calm a kitty I can do it. Also the doorwoman, with 6 cats never a peaceful time doing what needs to be done.

    To my husband I'm "the best thing that's ever happened to him", shug (short for sugar), fireball, life manager and "a damn good cook". To all who know me I am "Carol makes the tea". For all my adult life, any event, everyone looks to me to bring the tea with whatever dish they have requested. My kids call me mom and the boss and the grandkids call me grandma. The children I have babysat for called me rickncarol until they were old enough to realize their parents were saying, "do you want to go to Rick and Carol's".

    Once on a car loan form it asked for my profession. Since I'm a stay at home mom, I asked dh what to write. He suggested "domestic love slave."

    We we got the loan. I've used it several times since.
