Confusion In the Ranks

I have been really trying for the last couple of weeks to enjoy going to church. I have been to Relief Society two weeks in a row. I have stayed for all three blocks two weeks in a row. Not to mention, I attended my own ward two weeks in a row. (I don't have so many problems/concerns when I go somewhere else.)

Now, our Relief Society prints out everyone's Visiting Teaching assignments and puts them out on a table for us to pick up every week. (they seem to change that often too) They make the announcement that they are there in the beginning of the class and so at the end, I went to get mine. (my partner moved out of the ward not too long ago) NOTHING. I have been assigned someone/people to visit teach since I was a senior in high school. I have had times of neglect and times that I went regularly. But I have never (when every companionship is assigned 4-5 people each) not been a visiting teacher. HUMPH!

Not to mention, I am sitting during announcements and hear that there is an enrichment coming up next week. And the counselor over the enrichment mentions that the committee is really tiny and they need some extra help with everything. Now last I checked I was ON the enrichment committee. But I haven't gotten a call, email, or text about any meetings to plan anything. (the counselor in charge was my visiting teaching companion who, as I previously mentioned, MOVED not too long ago) So, I sent my hubby on a mission to find out if I have a calling still. (he can get a list of everyone with callings because of his) Aren't they supposed to tell you when you are released from callings? I was sure that was part of the deal.

I know I could go ask if I still have a calling. I could go ask why I don't have an assignment with Visiting Teaching. BUT part of me just doesn't want to. It would be nice not to have to do anything, but at the same time I don't like to be told I CAN'T do anything either. Who decided I didn't need or want a calling or assignment? And then they did it without asking or informing me of their concerns. Am I really that scary to talk to? What's the deal?!

Good Heavens girl ... they're damned if they do, damned if they don't :). Come to my ward and take my sunbeams for a few weeks - I'll sit around and smile and nod. Also. I TOTALLY kind of did all my VT last week. Card with lots of hand writing and treats! I hate making appointments, but I figure if I bring a treat they'll forgive my brief invasion. My current thought is I will try to take a note and a treat at the beginning of the month, help if they ever ask for it, and do a check up call towards the end of the month to make sure they are good. Seems better then scheduling and rescheduling and giving them the same lesson they gave 3 times.

I am just ornery. I know. I just want to be informed of changes made to my time by someone else. ya know?
