About Carol

Hello, my name is Carol.  I am a 40(ish) mom who tries to finish each day having accomplished something.  Even if it is just getting the dishes washed.  I grew up in a Connecticut suburb and went of to the Navy when I was 18.  Actually my mother signed me up when I was 17, but I don’t really think she was trying to move me out of the house, do you?

I spent 20 years in the Navy as a Corpsman, and loved every minute, (except duty days).  My last command was HM-14 with MH-53 helicopters. I must say that was my favorite job in the Navy.  I loved the helicopters, the people and my boss.

I currently work as a Skin Care Specialist at Quarles Dermatology here in Southeast Virginia Hampton Roads area. I have been there 8 years and love my job!  I am able to make a positive impact in people’s lives by helping them feel better about their face.  That is a wonderful thing!

I have two biological sons and one step son.  I have been in a wonderful relationship for 8 years, and am very happy.

In addition to blogging here, I also write at The Next Family, and have been featured on BlogHer.
