I think I'm a ward project

Well, more accurately, I think I'm a Relief Society project. People have been suspiciously nice and helpful recently, beyond the call of duty. But if being a project means I get great dinners, etc., I think I'm happy to be one. :)

It does raise fascinating questions, however, about why/how I became a project. I think it may just have to do with this blog...

I'm curious what you mean about being a project--what's happened?

I'm just refering to the fact that my VTs brought me dinner out of the blue the other day. (Thanks, E. and K. for dinner. It was awesome!) I was wondering if it was in response to my not-so-thrilled-with-the-church blog posts I've written recently. Or maybe they are worried I may follow a similar path as you. Or maybe it's simply a nice gesture for a family with a new baby. Not sure....

I was a ward project in my student ward at BYU. I got lots of cookies and even an entire stake fast one Sunday on my behalf. A little embarrassing when you're trying to go unnoticed, but I suppose it meant someone cared. I think I started getting asked out on a higher-than-normal level of dates as well, so just be thankful you're married...... ;-)

Journeygal,
Nice! Lots of cookies and dates. Being a ward project does have its advantages. :)

Usually a ward project in a college situation gets asked out more because the inactive girls give more blow jobs.
