I started this blog to keep my church, friends and family updated on my year volunteering in Katrina recovery with the Presbyterian Church (USA). I've now signed on for a second year working in disaster recovery and another year living in Mississippi. It's getting good....

A whole new kind of fog

Somehow May has snuck up on me and I find myself lost in a buggy fog. This morning I awoke early to try and start my day with a little walk- some fresh air, alone time, and sunshine. I forgot about the bugs. Now my legs look like they've contracted the mumps, due to all the bug bites.

Today is going to be a big one here. Wednesdays I spend the entire day at the church holding office hours to catch up on paperwork and also give homeowners a chance to actually find and get a hold of me. Oh, and add in 3 meetings just for fun.

But today we have a big meeting. Yesterday the Presbytery met and reviewed an disaster recovery administrative commission and task force proposal to redesign the disaster recovery office structure and personnel. The administrative commission is sending a representative to our church today to meet with all current disaster recovery staff and long-term volunteers to explain the changes. Rumors are everywhere and I have no idea how this will all play out, but my hope is that enough smart folks have chipped in to this process and that we'll all be better off for it. Maybe this will bring us out of our chaos fog as well.....

You and Graham should compare bug bites.
I hope good things come out of all these meetings and changes and stuff!
