Update much?

Has anyone been waiting to hear about my first week, now 2 weeks at the new job?? Well, to make a long story short, I have learned more about mortgage banking in these 2 weeks than I learned in the year at the other company. I've learned 6 new computer systems and even learned how to calculate simple interest and per diems manually. I am still not 100% sure what my specific job will be, but that will come OTJ I guess.

I will be working on an end of month to end of month reporting period and will be the analyst in charge of reporting expected $$ to a large group of investors. I know without a doubt that it will be so hard, and I will be working late a lot and the days will pass by quickly. Partial thumbs up on the overtime, but more so thumbsdown. I've been getting home at 5:15pm and Caroline has been going to sleep around 7:30. Not much time to spend with the one great thing in my life. I hope my new coworkers understand that I can't stay at work like they can and do. There are days when I will have to leave ASAP b/c John is at work and I have to pick her up at the babysitters. There will be days like today, when I have to stay home to take care of her. It's not possible for him to miss work.

Tomorrow is Caroline's Baptism. I am excited b/c this is a very important part of her life to be. We are raising her Catholic and will give her the choice to practice whichever religion or no religion that she wants after she has been Confirmed. John and I were both given that option and we feel that it is what we want to do as well. John's sister won't be coming and I really don't know how I feel about that. He doesn't seem to care. I will never understand his family. Weird with a capital W.
