|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.|
