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.
