Hi. My name is Darlene, I live in Northern Virginia, close to Dulles Airport. I'm 47, married, and a mother to one teen son.
I work as a Field Office Coordinator for a nationwide General Contractor - mostly in a construction trailer at a data center job site. I work on Subcontracts, Insurance compliance, invoice coding, and shopping - lots of shopping (I keep the guys full of snacks & drinks, and office supplies).
I've been up and down the scale all my life. I am 5'11" and I have been as big as 260 lbs and as thin as 150 lbs as an adult. I'm hoping to get back down to 160 lbs.
I'm a cook & a crafter. I started cooking when I was 10. I have over 25 years experience (one & off) of professional cooking. I like to make things. Sometimes I sew, knit or crochet. I have made sterling silver & semi-precious stone jewelry. I've done word burning, paper making, counted cross stitch, made x-mas ornaments out of hand-blown egg shells; I'll try just about anything to see if I like it. I'm not a TV watcher and don't sit idle for long, except at night when I'm reading. I read every night for at least an hour.
