Well the weekend went by really fast and it is time to go back to work. I love my job and can't complain about going to work 2 days a week. It's for 24 hours but still only 2 days a week. I get the whole week done in 2 days. We do have mandatory overtime twice a month but I always know when it is so I can sort of plann ahead. I do have to work all the major holidays this year. That's a bummer!
The weather has finally changed and it is my favorite time of year! I don't think I could be all christmassy if was still hot.

Hi! I am new to blogging so here it goes. A bit about myself. I am married and have 3 children. I live in the country outside of Hutto on several acres of land. I have horses and really enjoy training and ridding. I have been a paramedic for the City of Austin for about 19 1/2 years. This is a job I have really enjoyed. Every day is different and exciting. My husband is also a paramedic for the city and of course that is how we met.
My son is in banking and my daughter just left the Marines. My stepdaughter is still in H.S. in San Antonio.
I have done crafts most of my life and find it a great way to relax after a long shift. My problem is I love to learn all sorts of different things. My husband is good and lets me dive into just about any new medium I want. I love doing chainmaille and stained glass but really enjoy many other crafts too. I am so excited about joining the ETSY Austin team and look forward to meeting as many of you as I can.
