Tuesday I wrote an e-mail to the HR person about the job schedule, and it turns out that the DC operates Monday through Friday...though she reiterated (again) that sometimes they run Saturdays, too.

...and couldn't be happier about it. Having a job will give my life some much-needed structure, as well as letting me pay bills without having to take money out of my inheritance.

Speaking of getting stuff done, then, I've got errands I must attend to.
