Introduction So.. Mother of two boys,Sam and Ben, both with Asperger's. Don't get your knickers in a twist, this is not a defect, just a different wiring system in the brain. I married a great guy, John, with the same issue. Aside from translating for the Aspies, I am an avid knitter (hand over the yarn and no one gets hurt.. really, This is not a drill.) I work my full time job for pay, then come home to the real job. I have a really great family (Hi Mom, you rock!) and really great friends. I am blessed with a place to live, plenty of food (the extra 35, well... maybe 40 pounds, is all the proof I need) Cars that are paid off, (please, just keep running.. that's all I ask) and a really great stash of yarn. I have, like, 46 pairs of socks to knit in my sock stash.
Interests Momming, (my actual career choice is motherhood.)Knitting, Crocheting, Spinning (not the bicycle classes people!) Aspergers, Cats, Dogs, Good books, Good books on Audible so I can knit at the same time, Baking, Gardening and all kinds of other stuff I can't think of right now.
