She said she would call today saturday.  Seeing how it is after 9 at night and Saturday,I would say,she picked someone else.  I wrote her a last emil saying I would respect her more if she would have called or emailed me to tell me she chose somebody else,instead of my instinct telling me so.  I am glad I did not get my hopes up. Now I don't feel disappointed.

 Dont know about you but Saturday is usually family time she may not have had a chance with things that need done over the weekend.

Well that's a bummer. Sounded like this job may have been sort of fun for you. Then again...given the pain you've been in with your knee/leg it may be a blessing too. Something will come up! Have you ever decided to promote yourself in an ad? I mean...instead of responding to others...let them come to you? Place an add for a service you can offer and see if anyone calls. Can't hurt right?

Oh my. I guess what's done is done, but you may have burned a bridge there. What if she did go with someone else, but they don't work out? She may have thought to call you somewhere down the line. I've gone on a lot of interviews and received a lot of rejection letters over the years, but what I've learned is to send a follow-up thank-you for meeting with me letter, regardless of whether I felt I had a shot at the job after the interview or not. Leaving a  positive final impression can be as important as making a good first impression. Even if one particular job didn't work out, it can leave a door open in case a future job becomes available. And that happens more often than you think. Just my two cents.

I agree...never burn a bridge. She may not have hired you but could've referred you to someone else.

I agree with these sistets. Even though you had a gut feeling, sending the email wasn't a very wise thing to do.

I wouldn't have sent that. It's like burning a bridge. I hope you find something soon.
