Babysitting Blues...

I have been trying to babysit using care.com and I have had two potential families want me.  First mom decided not to use me, but ended up putting her kids in the same daycare/preschool as my son full time.  Kind of felt like a blow because at first I thought she was just putting her son (same age as mine) in the same school so I could watch them since my son only goes there 3 days a week for 3 hours just preschool and her son went to another school for the same amount of time.  Last week I met another mom and actually met her in person at a playground and we talked for an hour or so while our kids played.  It was monday and she said she would get ahold of me at the end of the week so we could set something up for her to come see my house.  We exchanged #'s and I hadn't heard from her so thursday I texted her and asked her if she still wanted to set something up call me.  She never called or texted me back.  Should I just leave it alone or try and call her? She did say she was looking into other caregivers, but I think I could have at least got a text saying sorry I don't need your services or something like that.  I mean for all I know something bad could have happened or she is just going to leave me hanging.  At least the other lady called me and told me she wasn't going to need me.  So what should I do?
