    Somewhat gainful employment on the horizon

    I interviewed earlier this week, and got the call back today on a local niche bus company. I'll be doing runs primarily transporting pre-k students in two counties. Pay is 'ok'... but at least the hours are supposedly steady quantity wise, and definitely 'hours' wise. I should be home by 4 or 5 daily. That will let me get out in the shop for more cutting boards etc... once the shop thaws back out in a few weeks.
