I finally received word that I've been officially selected for the seasonal work at IRS. I start January 22 and will work for approximately 5 months, depending on my performance and how the tax season plays out. If taxpayer filings are later overall, I may have the opportunity to work a little later into the year.
When the season is over, and assuming good work performance, I will be placed on a call-back list and can take other work until they ask me to come back. I plan to do temp work during the off-season.
A Little Thing To Save Money: Now that I know for sure when I'll start work and what hours I'll be working, I've registered with a couple of different carpool/ride share networks in hopes of finding a way to keep gasoline costs down.
A Little Thing To Simplify Our Lives: When my job begins, I'll need to leave the house at about the time I currently get up in the mornings. Between now and my start date, I'll gradually get myself and Kat up a little earlier each morning so that getting up early won't be such a shock.
