Bad VT

I am a bad person.

A very bad person.

I haven't done any visiting teaching since we moved here. None. I have an assignment of four sisters in the ward to visit but I have no clue who they are and have never contacted them.

I will be going to hell. Unfortunately I don't seem to care. What is wrong with me?

In Tehachapi I was a great Visiting Teacher, I was even the Visiting Teaching Coordinator. I know Visiting Teaching is a great thing. But I just have no desire to do mine at this time. Maybe it's because I have no Visiting Teachers to come visit me, or maybe it's because I'm now in Young Women's and I don't feel like I have time for anything but Young Women's stuff.

The funny thing is that Relief Society is having a Visiting Teaching Workshop/Conference next Tuesday and the Relief Society President asked if I (and the rest of the Young Women's Presidency--why do they do that, like we don't have enough going on with Young Women's!) would be in a little skit they are doing titled "Sister Queen and the Seven Warts". I will be playing the part of the Mean Wart.

How fitting.

Sigh.

Will you send me letters in Hell?

This is slightly off topic, but I think it's weird how everyone asks you to do all kinds of extra stuff when you're in YW. And when you're in Primary, with almost nothing to do, it's like you don't exist. I run into people at the store and they ask, "So . . . are you still in our ward?" Weird.

I think you should do your VTing. If you do, I may be motivated to do mine. I missed last month and am wearing haircloth. It's uncomfortable.

Meh. Odds are that we'll be neighbors in Hell. I'll bring you a housewarming gift. Perhaps a lapjyp, if word verification is to be believed.

I only do my VT because MY supervisor lives across the hall and my roommate is my companion. Not to mention that I'd feel hypocritical if I asked other gyns if they'd done theirs and I hadn't.

Can I join you there? I got a new companion a few months ago and have done nothing about it. I feel really bad, too, because I have great visiting teachers who stop by every month and even bring me birthday presents. I'm going to go hang my head in shame now...

Today at church the VT Coordinator cornered me and said she would be making appoints and taking me with her to go see the people I am supposed to be visiting, as my partner just had a baby. I am not quite sure how I feel about this, more guilty? glad someone else is making the appointments? ashamed? I'm not sure.

Daltongirl: I have witnessed what you are speaking of regarding working in the Primary. In fact I don't even know who works in the Primary in our ward here and if I ever met them I would probably think they had just moved into the ward.It's strange how Primary is a black hole for leaders.

SOrry about the haircloth.


edgy: I'm sure I would love a lapjyp

Rachel: my VTing got done much more often when my roomate was my companion.

wawa: oh boy postcards!

foxy:there's something about getting a new companion, or being the new companion that just throws everything off. I'm glad you have good VT's, you deserve them.

My friend was just released as a VTer - the supervisor told her that since she never did it, she didn't have to try anymore. What a DEAL! On a related note, I do have a testimony of VTing, and try to do it monthly (they keep giving me sisters who don't actually know they are members of the church), but I think VTing Conferences and their attending skits are Fruits Of The Devil. Ask if your part can be renamed 'Sister GuiltyPants.'

Yes, Sister Guilty Pants! I could play that part perfectly!

It would be nice if I could get released as a VT, at least for a short while. Maybe in another three or four months I would be ready to try it out again. Heck, if they released me as a VT I would tell them they wouldn't need to assign me one since that only seems fair.

The skit is tonight. I have my part memorized. I'm ready to be the Mean Wart. Wish me luck!

Ah yes Hell... I don't really believe that I'll personally be going there, but I do believe that God will show me Hell on the way to Heaven as a practical joke to scare me, so I will wave at you all as I pass on by...

I love your blog! We seem to live parallel lives. After years of griping about visiting teaching I have just been released from my calling in YW to become the (scary intro music) the VISITING TEACHING COORDINATOR!! Ack! I spent almost 5 hours today trying to update lists and am pretty sure this calling is either going to send me straight to heaven or hell but I'm guess you'll need to save me a spot on your firey picnic blanket in hell.

I look forward to keeping up with your blog. If you don't mind, I'm going to add your link to my blog's sidebar By the way - your lyrics to "I Often Go Walking" killed me :)

Sarah--

So glad to have you here, WELCOME!

I too was once the VT coordinator, which makes me not doing my VTing all the worse. I actually kind of enjoyed being the coordinator, but I think that was because that ward was really really good about doing VTing, so it wasn't that difficult of a calling. Plus, I liked getting to use the computer.

I am now in YW, so I guess we are living somewhat parallel lives.

I'd be honored to have you put a link to my blog on your blog.

Oh, and I'll keep a spot open on my Hell picnic blanket for you.;)
