    I can open up the widgets dashboard and I can add widgets to the dashboard from the list provided. The issue is that I can not manage my widgets nor can I add new widgets to the list I have.

    Currently all I have are:
    -business
    -calculator
    -documentary
    -flight tracker
    -google
    -hp ink widget
    -ical
    -itunes
    -movies
    -people
    -ski report
    -stickies
    -stocks
    -tile
    -game
    -translation
    -unit converter

    I used to have the weather widget but It recently disappeared... and I have no idea what happened to it.

    Is there something I can to do either fix the path for my widgets or to rework it so I can manage them again?

    Trash this file, log out, and log back in:
    /Users/username/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dashboard.plist

    Yes. Mac OS X will rebuild it automatically. Selectively deleting a .plist file that may be corrupt is a basic troubleshooting process.
