About CarolMeador
Joined November 2017
I grew up in a small farming town in Iowa. I used to live in a mountain cabin with a dog named Leia and a cat named George, close to Smoky Mountain National Park in western North Carolina. I have one son, Colyn, and one grandson, Devon, who live in Ilinois.

I am a retired Occupational Therapist. I have many interests and hobbies, including reading, quilting, singing, and writing. I took ballroom dance classes for about 10 years with my ex-husband, and love to dance.

I really enjoyed "Read to Raven", a reading program with my certified therapy dog, Raven, that I did at libraries in IA, CO, and NC.

I really miss both dancing and pet therapy, but am excited about building my website, and that will keep me out of trouble for the present. Perhaps I'll even meet some other folks in the community who love to dance, who knows?

Oh yes, I believe a word of caution might be in order here...I have a playful side and love to make people laugh. Please don't take it seriously if I have to tease you a bit! Sometimes I just can't help myself!! TeeHee!

UPDATE: 9/10/18

I spent the spring and summer preparing my house for sale, sold it in July, and closed and moved into an apartment in town in August.

It was sad leaving my cozy mountain paradise and having to find a new home for my cat, Bigfoot George, but I know that it was the right decision for me. Leia and I are adjusting to apartment living and I know I'll enjoy this new chapter in my life once I am unpacked and settled into our new home.

With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the East Coast of the US, I am thankful for my more protected environment here and that I will not be alone on the mountain during the storm.

For details about my decision to move and pictures of my wonderful mountain home of nearly 20 years, see my posts " Welcome to Carol's Cascades - My Little Piece of Paradise", "Carol's Cascades Revisited", and "Mountain Mama No More!"

Those are VERY achievable goals, Carol! Starting small and working your way up in time is definitely much more likely to set you up for success than aiming to work <5 hours per week, or aiming for a massive amount of money way too quickly.

If I can help you achieve these goals in any way, please let me know! I'm happy to help however I can.

Thanks, Cindy. I agree we have a lot in common. I think we could be good friends. Where do you live in FL? I lived in the Boca/Delray Beach area of the east coast before I moved up here. I came to NC to visit friends on vacation, and something said, "this is home, you gotta move here." So, when my son graduated from high school, we did. Have been here for 20 years, and really love it. Carol

Hello Carol, thank you for connecting with me. I love the Smoky Mountains and anywhere in North Carolina. I have some friends who are ballroom dancing fans in Florida. I also love reading, quilting, singing and writing...although I am not very good at any of them! ;-) I definitely love to try and make people laugh. We have a lot in common! I look forward to following you and I wish you lots of succes which I can for sure see happening with all your interests and personality.

Read your article on eating disorders. I used to work with psychiatric patients, and recall one little girl after all these years. I think she was 16. She would refuse to sit down while eating because she wanted to burn more calories that way. I wonder what ever happened to her.
