The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

I am sorry for all of the gramatical and spelling errors on the previous post...
they have now mostly - I think - been corrected and we can move on from that hideousness.

I am back home from two and half days in Knoxville for meetings. We are working on re-aligning our council. It sounds so scary, business-like, and vague but if you have never been a part of a strategic learning process or a business realignment (which must happen now that our councils have been merged for almost a year now), consider yourself lucky. It is challenging, exhausting, breeds confusion and disagreement, and then once you finally get it all figured out - you have to go out and convince the rest of your organization to buy into all the things you have decided. For us, this means other staff that is not on this particular team, volunteers, girls, troop leaders, parents, vendors, etc, etc, etc....not an easy or even all that fun a process. Necessary and interesting. But I wouldn't go as far as to call it fun.
In other news, I have this strange swollen, infected, weirdness on my ankle. I know I shouldn't tell my gross and weird personal problems to the world but I would like to request some prayers for quick healing. It has gotten progressively worse since Monday so I am going to the Dr. this afternoon - I am pretty nervous about it. I haven't the slightest idea what it could be and I have gotten myself sufficiently worked up about it...

In better news, I have a nice new house update to show you. If blogger will upload pictures tonight, I will pass it along!
