I understand about the OT and applaud your work ethic, but let's not be penny wise and pound foolish here.
Surely you can find a Wally World or Sears with an auto center, or, in a place the size of DFW, a dealer who's open until 9.
Do you have a gearhead friend? Pay him/her to come to your work or your place and change the oil for you. If the guy is unemployed, you'd be helping him out.
You can also buy everything you need to do it yourself for less than $25, slightly more if you want to run synthetic.
If none of that works for you, there are probably people who will come to your place in a van and change your oil in your parking lot. They do it for windshields, and I remember some people used to do "we come to you" oil changes.
Rule of thumb for me is that a MM of 15% means I have about 900 miles +/- until the thing runs to 0.
