Hi, Dad here, with Dad's Tip of the Week. This one's good. Mrs. Mom walked into the office this morning and she says, "Do you know what today is?" I'm thinking, "Yeah...", what did I forget? It's not your birthday. It's not our anniversary. "What is it?" She held up our countdown clock for our Disney World vacation. She said, "It's 100 days 'till we go to Disney World. I'm ready to go. I got the blahs. The 100 day blahs."

We purposely keep coming up with fun and funny names to place on our bands until the 30 day mark.
