Habitat for Humanity

I signed us up to volunteer at Habitat this Saturday.  It's good to give back and something we don't do enough of.  However, it wasn't what we were expecting.  I knew going in we were not building houses.  We were to clean up the outsides of 9 homes on a certain block for people disabled, elderly, or vets.  The lack of organization was too much.  I wanted to take it over and get it rolling smoother.  We ended up washing windows....

and clearing out debris from 1 house.  Lots of twigs, branches, and raking. 

We only stayed 2 hours because after that there was a lot of sitting around because the lady who was the go-to person disappeared.

We may volunteer again sometime, but not on that block.  I won't go into detail as why not on that block, but it's just one of those things that I have a pet-peeve about.  Some people put themselves in situations and expect others to help all the time.  That's not why we signed up.
