Angie (Mind Malfunction) (angieerickson) | 338 comments Yes, if you're a dragon than that's your month one and snake would follow the next month.

This would be your monthly order:
Month 1 = Dragon
2 = Snake
3 = Horse
4 = Sheep
5 = Monkey
6 = Rooster
7 = Dog
8 = Pig
9 = Rat
10 = Ox
11 = Tiger
12 = Rabbit

southpaw285 Okay...I gots a problem. I didn't get "dragon" finished for April. I got all but the "N" done. I missed the gift card deadline too. I know...right?!

I want to do the challenge. Can I come back to it in a couple of months or so and sign up again, and start over?


message 277: by Rachel (new)

Rachel (treychel) | 1484 comments Of course you can, southpaw. Or, just finish the "n" when you can and plug it in to April. Whatever you would like to do. Congrats on making that far. I don't even make it far enough to even do a challenge most of the time! *hangs head*


message 278: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15159 comments I don't see why you can't apply the Extention Gift Card to your April challenge, Southpaw. Yes, the card expires then... but I would think, since it is April you are talking about...

Sashana? What do you say?


message 279: by Sashana (new)

Sashana Go ahead and use the Extention Gift Card, southpaw. It's fine with me. Good luck!

Adele Symonds (adelesymonds) | 57 comments I am an ox

I will do all the spell it out words one at a time but will just run on is I finish one word early as for the short signs I have chosen some long verbs. Also I am jumping into this challenge very late.

MY list is as follows

Logical ox
Tiger
Rabbit
Dragon
Snake
Horse
Creative Sheep
Monkey
Rooster
Open-minded Dog
Understanding Pig
Industrious Rat

Am I allowed to do this or do I have to work through the words individually?
Starting Date 22/7/2012

Starting word - Logical ox 3/9
Dragon - 1/6
