About The Sugar Booty
Now that I've got your attention, here's the real story:
I'm a 40-something deaf first-time mom to a gorgeous baby girl born in September 2009. I wear a cochlear implant which helps me hear, but not 100%. I have great difficulty understanding speech over the phone and still need things repeated to me. I couldn't live without Closed Captions on TV and think subtitles on DVD's should be mandatory.
I married my soul mate in 2008 and moved from Texas to Chicago, one of the most liberal cities in the nation. I loved living in that vibrant, colorful city, and was sorry to leave it. I still miss it and hope to visit it again very soon!
It's hard being a liberal in Texas, and I'm always walking on eggshells around people about my political beliefs.
For fun I enjoy bike riding, swimming, taking walks, sewing, and doing most crafts, like mosaics, if I have the space.
My husband has undiagnosed Asperger's (he shows many of the symptoms). When his niece was diagnosed with it and was presented with the symptoms and signs, my sister-in-law said, "That's my brother, exactly!" It's interesting being married to a man who sometimes doesn't get that I'm being sarcastic or teasing. Especially when I threaten to do something outlandish: his eyes get big and he'll hold out his hand to stop me and say, "NO DON'T! Oh....wait, you're joking, aren't you?"
Yes, I admit it. I love torturing the poor guy. It's so fun to do! But he has endless patience, which is fortunate because my hearing loss requires him to repeat things, sometimes, many times.
So there you have it. The Sugar Booty has spoken.
Now, get shakin'.
