Project 2007 tasks skipping days

I have a project where all tasks are 1 day durations (very small project, so I'm not worried about exact effort). When I schedule tasks with dependencies, the tasks end up skipping days.

For example, task 2 starts on Wednesday 4/4, ends on Wednesday 4/4 with a duration of 1 day (task 1 is a milestone). When I setup task 3 with a predecessor of 2FS+1d, it schedules it for Friday 4/6/12, skipping Thursday. I even looked at the resource usage table and Thursday has nothing associated with it. This pattern repeats for the rest of the tasks in this project.

Any ideas on what I can do to fix this? I've never had Project do this to me before.

Re: Project 2007 tasks skipping days

It is just because there is a one-day lag time (Thursday) between Task 2 and Task 3. Here are some articles on it:
