To date, I have not posted many blogs here. I prefer to lurk around and leave random comments as it feels somehow "safer" to me. (One of my resolutions for next year is to break out of my shell a bit and blog more).
I was inclined to write this because I wonder how many others in the industry are feeling what I am feeling? What am I feeling? Good question! I am feeling relieved that there is so much work (finally!) with all of the refinancing going on due to the low rates. I am feeling "robbed" of my normally relaxed Christmas season as it is usually DEAD this time of year which affords me the opportunity to enjoy the holiday and shop leisurely. I am frustrated with the timing of these snow storms because I can't just run out quickly to pick up a few presents or run an errand - it is now at least an hour commitment which is too much time away from work.
Why does it always seem that it is either Feast or Famine in this industry?
As a loan processor, I have always maintained that I would be VERY happy with a consistent two or three loans per week. A more typical scenario is either one a month or six a week. Please don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. I love the work! I just wonder if there will ever be the perfect balance. That's what I am dreaming of now that many of us have our White Christmas. I am dreaming of the perfect balance of work and play! For now though, bring on the feast!
