[wp-polyglots] Trouble Translating a WordPress theme with PoEdit on a Mac

Hello all, I just joined this list. I'm hoping someone can help me with this
issue. I've just created a WordPress theme and have already prepared all the
strings for translation following the guidelines given in the WordPress
Codex. I've just installed PoEdit and I'm trying to generate a .POT file.
However, after at least 10 tries, it cannot edit the catalog because it says
it can't find any translatable files (at least, that's what I think it says
because the error messages are all cut off).

I'm beginning to think it's the paths. I'm on a Mac, and my theme folder is
on the desktop. So, Themius/Users/chellycat/Desktop/citizenpress is correct,
right? (Themius is the name of my hard drive, and then Users is the users
folder, and chellycat is my personal folder). I even tried putting the
citizenpress folder in the Applications folder with PoEdit, but that didn't
work either. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Thanks in advance for
any suggestions or insights. If I can provide more info, please let me know.
