Hello, my name is Carol.  I am a 45(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 into to the Navy when I was 18.  Actually my mother signed me up when I was 17….take that as you will

I spent 20 years in the Navy as a Hospital 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 for a local Dermatologist, here in Southeast Virginia.  I have been there over 10 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, one Stepson and a step daughter.  I have been in a wonderful relationship with y beautiful partner Karol for 11 years, and am very happy.

In addition to blogging here, I also write at The Next Family, Ten to Twenty Parenting, and She Knows Media.  I have been featured on mom.me, Mombian, BlogHer, and have recently been invited to partner with PRI in a campaign to increase the visibility of women in media, Across Women’s Lives.
