    What Is Your Title?

    Aside from quilter, or moderately decent cook, if someone asked what I call myself, I'd have to say "DOORMAN FOR ANIMALS".

    A dog, and four cats, keep me getting up from my chair many times a day. Even in the wee hours of the morning I am expected to haul myself out of bed because somebody wants in or out. They do not care if I am watching a good movie, dusting furniture, or doing the dishes.

    So....what is your title? I'm interested.

    I could add "Doorman" also. They like to let me know very loudly, as soon as I step into the shower even though they just have only been inside for a meer 5 minutes. I tell them to go lay down.

    I'm also the dog doorman for my 2 and my friend's dog when she is gone
    My min pin just wants to run around the fence in the dog yard and check things out for no reason
    Ours don't care if we miss the end of out tv show either

    I grew up as Kirk's sister, then Ryan's mom. So much as I was going to put myself in the phone book as Ryan's mom.
    Now I'm known as L&L, (Lynn and Larry, my husband), or Zoey's mom. my cat.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I'm known as a professional mourner. Take me to anyone's funeral (I don't have to know them) and I can cry. I was thinking of putting an ad in the paper to earn a little extra money.

    There is a sweet autistic first grader at school that calls me "Aiken's friend". I am a special education aide in an elementary school and I spend much of my day with Aiken, (also autistic).

    I love his name for me. I am glad I am viewed as a "friend".

    No title...sad but true...but I refer to myself as "Queen of the Quilt Tops" as I hardly ever complete a quilt!

    Since we had to put the cats on restricted feeding times, (trying to get the weight off of our very fat "BubbleButt"), I'd have to say my title is "Food Timekeeper".

    My children used to call me Blessed Silence. It came about as one of those funny misunderstandings. When the kids were little, I was driving them home from school, and they were in the back seat singing happily at the tops of their lungs, "Mommy, Mommy, Mommer, Momms." After about 30 minutes of this glee, I told them I wanted to hear some Blessed Silence. So...Mommer is now Blessed Silence. Lol
