No one could blame Carolyn Barnes if she just sits back, props her feet and enjoys life again.
She's finally home.
And as Mother's Day approaches, the Lawrenceburg resident is loving every moment of her new assignment of just being a wife, mom and grandmother.
A nurse in the Army reserves, Carolyn Barnes ended an assignment of more than 2 years to Fort Dix, N.J. in January amid tears, laughter and a welcome home party a month later.
While it is always possible to be called back to active duty, chances are that her days away from home are over.
