I'm an independant, professionally-employed mother to an 12 year old. I'm a pretty happy person who enjoys a good laugh. I'm honest and sincere and expect the same in others. I like being outdoors in my free time, probably because I work in an office all day. Besides spending time with my daughter, I enjoy gardening, swimming, running, walking and golf. I'm not a particularly good athtete, but I enjoy taking part. I really enjoy cooking and have been told I'm a good cook. Dining out is also great. I also enjoy going to the movies, live theatre, TV, listening to music/concerts and playing cards. Would like to become a competent downhill skier - my daughter is into competitive slalom racing. Any instructors out there?
