I always said that if I could bottle Dale's energy that I'd be a billionaire. He's perpetually in motion! I don't know what time he eventually fell asleep as I crashed before him, and he's the one who woke me up this morning. I don't know how he does it. We suspect that he's got a little ADHD in there along with the ASD, but the Vyvanse didn't really help him out a lot. When we get out to San Diego and find a new doctor for him, we'll have them evaluate him.
Dale has had a better week at school. He's still not thrilled to be there and every day this week he got cited at least once for behavior issues, but he's handling it better. He's also calmed down at daycare, so I think he's found something of a routine for himself. And then his dad and my better half will be home soon so that will help him.
I have changed my opinion about the DK Winter Socks. They're not perfect but they feel pretty good on the feet. I wore them yesterday at work and they were comfortable even in the heat and humidity we have. Go wool!
I have gotten the basics of Continental down. I can knit! My fabric is uneven, the gauge is a little looser than when I knit English, my hands feel awkward while I'm doing it, and I can't say it's really faster than English...yet. But I'm doing it. I'm working on some coasters in Continental: I figure after making a set of four I'll have the knit stitch down pat. Then I'll work on learning the purl stitch.
