  1. I'm trying to do this now, and couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong...but there's a button to "Edit this countdown" on the right side, which you need to click on before you can choose your date & enter text. But other than that, spot on! And thank you, I had tried to do this based on directions you put in a reply to someone else but couldn't get it to work then. :)

    1. Ah, I just went to do it again and apparently this time I did it the way you suggested. It comes up with Graduation widgets right now, not the one you have, so I must have clicked on something different. :)

  2. Way aint my countdown doing the "since" closing...its stuck on closing day???
