Just another day...

Greetings.

It seems like forever since I posted an entry here... Things just got hectic.

Does anyone ever get the feeling that people take advantage of them when they do favors for others? Well... That's how I've been feeling lately.

You see, I'm the type of person who bends over backwards for people when they are in need of help (It's just who I am)... I seldom say "no" unless I have a prior committment (work, family, etc.).

Well, as of late, I've been called upon more frequently to help out with things. Mainly cleaning up flooded basements (2"+ of water)after the last big rainstorm that hit Wisconsin and running errands for neighbors who don't drive. To top this off, my Church group just took on a huge, long term service project in which everyone is expected to participate at some level.

I usually don't mind helping out, but it's taking a toll on me... Between work and volunteering my time, it's just wearing me out. I find it rather ironic that I help all these people, never ask for anything in return... And never once does anyone thank me for what I do for them.

Maybe, I'm just expecting too much of others... I don't know.
