I've Lost An Entire Day...

There are certain things my brain just isn't wired for, like website design, computer networking...and, you know, texting. I'm what you might call technologically challenged. Not as bad as my mother, mind you, I can type with more than one finger and I do understand how to answer my cell phone. And I will try gosh darn it, but it's always there, my resistance to all-things-new-and-techie. My husband doesn't have it, and my kids certainly don't...if I need help, I can usually count on my eight-year-old to save the day. And if she can't do it, I will pry the headphones out of my son's ears (only for a minute, I promise) and he can almost always figure out what I've done wrong.

But here's the deal: People like me shouldn't be allowed to create their own countdown widgets.

Last night when I went to bed, I had 52 days until the release of THE BODY FINDER, and then this morning I did an actual calendar count and realized that my numbers were off! WHAT?!?!?!

I would love to blame the widget program, but here's the flaw in my logic, you have to set the countdown clock to end at midnight at the beginning of the date you want it to stop counting, not at the end of the day it's released. I was adding an entire day. *headsmack*

So, it's official. 50. Days. Till. Launch!

50 Days!!!!!!!

I'm freaking out, people!

Congratulations! Can't wait for the release!
I'm sort of technologically challenged, I had my brother teach e how to use my I-pod nano. I didn't realize you could pause movies and skip scenes until 2 months AFTER I got it...pitiful right? :D

This is exciting stuff, Kim! And I resisted texting until I got my iphone. Now, I am a texting fool. It's all about the tiny keyboard!

CONGRATS KIM!!! WE'RE ALL EXCITED FOR THE RELEASE!!! It's good you fixed your countdown widget...one less day to worry about!!! =)))))))

Deep breaths...don't freak out!

How exciting!!!!

Your mistake was a good one (for us at least). I think your fans would be banging down your door if your countdown clock was wrong and you needed to ADD days to it.

Good things come to those who wait...and The Body Finder is great!

Congrats, my friend...can't wait to celebrate with you! But now I'm stuck on the countdown thing, because, if I remember correctly, you did the same thing with the Santa countdown thing then Connor yelled at US because ours was "wrong". HA! Vindication!
