I am really not dead

But, I am the worst blogger in the world. I have gone 2 months without a post. There is a reason though (yes, I have to make excuses...justification makes me feel better). Please rest assured I have not, I repeat I have NOT been visited by Cupid.

I moved into my new house the end of January. I went to my new ward for the first time on Feb 7. Two weeks later I went to Mexico City (for work, not fun...although it was fun). The day after I got home I got a call from the executive secretary of my ward, he asked me to come in and meet with the bishop that Wednesday. I went thinking it was going to be another get to know you interview and that I would possibly get a calling, something like ward program maker. I was right I was getting a calling, but it wasn't ward program maker. It was the Relief Society President. Yes, you read that right. I think my exact response was "You're joking, right?" Three weeks after moving into a new ward I was called as the RS Pres. It has been a challenge and a testimony building opportunity. One of the hardest things I had to do was call counselors from a ward where I literally knew no one. I guess RS Pres is a pretty busy calling...yes I am that naive. It is also greatly rewarding, I am surprised at how quickly I have come to love it. I finally feel like I have a handle on things now. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I love you all, my blogging buddies (are there any of you left?)

For those of you who don't understand anything in this you can learn more about my church by going here.

Still here and happy to hear from you again.
I dread the calling of RS President. It's way too intimidating for me. For you though, I think you'll make a great leader!
