Happy Wednesday MTB readers!
The following is an except from my latest post over at Suburban Finance:
After having a long, harsh winter it looks like spring has finally sprung. The weather is nicer; people are outside doing yard work, out for a jog or walking their dogs. Everyone just seems happier in general. With the first official long weekend of summer coming up in Canada, known as May 2-4 weekend, I often hear talk of people going up to their cottage for the long weekend or “getting their cottage ready” for the summer.
Growing up with immigrant parents, I never spent summers at the cottage. I don’t thinking owning or renting a cottage was ever one of my parents’ priorities. I had actually never been to a cottage until I was in my early 20s. I’ll admit it was nice to sit on the dock and relax, but I can only do that for so long. My alcohol tolerance is quite low, so I wouldn’t be able to spend the whole weekend drinking, unless I wanted to be passed out and severely hung over the next day. So, no thanks.
