Birth of a Novel Nov 15th

Okay, first I have to share this awesome .gif that Michael Offutt made for me. I really need to learn how to do these…maybe next year…

Thank you Michael! 

If you want one for your blog you can copy the code below and past it into an html box for your sidebar. 😉

Moving update is included with last week’s goals. 🙂

Last Week’s Goals:
1. Get kids enrolled in new school–This took two days and a total of six and a half hours. Why? Because I have 4 kids. Each kid is now in a different school and rides a different bus. The lesson to be learned? Family planning IS important.
2. Unpack and get life back to a normal routine so I can write next week. I’m probably 3/4 of the way unpacked so this is pretty good. Unfortunately, I woke up with a stiff neck this morning and am going to soak in a hot bath and maybe not do anything else today to recover. Hey, that actually sounds pretty good!

This Week’s Goals:
1. Write at least 2500 words on Search for Knowledge. It’s not a lot, but I still have some unpacking and Thanksgiving cooking to do. The plan is to just get started again.
2. Finish unpacking and decorate for Christmas. We always do inside before Thanksgiving so it looks beautiful and festive when we sit down to eat, and outside after.
3. Actually visit the other people that signed up for this thing I’ve started!

  1. I saw your gif on Michael's site first and thought WHoa!! very cool. And then "Charity knows how to do EVerything." *sigh* my ego couldn't take it. *copy, snag, tag, and pasting on my site*

  2. nice gif! These things are lots of fun.

  3. LOL, but I DON'T know how to make these. That's why it's so great to have lots of friends that know what we don't. Hope you know you can always ask me for help? Most of the stuff is really easy once you see how to do it. 😉

  4. Still laughing at the 'family planning is important' part!!

  5. Gifs are easy. Google a how to with photoshop elements on YouTube. Takes like ten minutes once you've sized the pictures right.

  6. Oh and play around with resizing the gif, Charity. Just look in that HTML code and you'll see "width" and "length". Change the numbers to make it bigger or smaller as you desire.

  7. Glad I could make you smile!

  8. Thanks Michael! I'll have to give it a try sometime. Although I sort of like letting you do it. 😉 I guess I owe you one now.

  9. Moving right before Thanksgiving should mean that you get to take the holiday off. Just this year.And cool gif.

  10. I love the gif!Glad the move went okay but bahh unpacking is the worst.<3
