Aw, I didn't get the job.  They said they'd call today and last time she called me for the clerical test she called at 10:00am.  Someone did better than I did on the interview and clerical test and that's not a far stretch to figure on.  Shoot.  So it was practice for the next job interview.

Right now I'm making some Christmas ornaments out of candy to keep my mind occupied.  They're super easy and kinda cute.

I used a hot glue gun instead of frosting for putting it together because no one will want to eat them after fingers have been all over it.  I used red pipe cleaners instead of string.

Tonight at 7:30pm we're going on a horse and carriage ride with Laura.  We saw her and Joe driving by to set up last night.  It was like a caravan going by!  It'll be cold out but should be a neat ride.  I wonder where she'll take us.

On my way home from Zumba Tuesday night I got stopped by the coppers!  I'm such a ditz.  I was driving my new car in the dark with the headlights off.  Seemed like I could see fine.  Surely I would have noticed they were off eventually.  Anyhoo, I don't know where he came from but suddenly, bam!, he's right behind me with enough lights pointed on me to light up a stadium.  I pulled over and sat in my car and waited.  He took a long time to come over.  I was waiting for him on my side of the car, but he knocked on the window on the passenger side and I jumped.  I suppose it's safer for him on that side.  I already had my wallet out and he told me my lights were off.  I was flustered and checked and sure enough someone, named "my husband", took the headlight control off of automatic.  Soooo.  That's why they were off.  The policeman never asked for my I.D.  He was very nice.  I got home and told my husband never, never take the lights off of auto again or I will get stopped by the police!

Bummer about the job. I have automatic light on my car too but don't use them. I just make it a habit to turn on my lights before I drive; day or night. Those police lights are so intimidating and whenever I see some behind me even if I know I'm not doing anything wrong my heart races and I get a sick pit in my tummy!

My son likes to tell our friends about when we were driving down the road and I was looking in the rear view mirror and said, "Oh look at the pretty lights," and it was a police car. I think it might have been daytime though and so it wasn't so bright. That's odd that you get a sick feeling. Maybe because emergencies or stuff like that bring the police too.

There's a job out there somewhere just for you. Having a cop behind me would scare the daylights out of me. I'm glad you didn't get a ticket.
