having fun: cottage style, part IPosted: August 2, 2011
This weekend just past was a long weekend. Normally, the husband and I have no concept of what a weekend is, let alone a long one. We laugh and say, ‘who needs a long weekend anyways?!’ and carry on working while secretly hating everyone who partakes in long weekend festivities. Who are we kidding; we’re too busy working to even notice it’s the weekend.
But not this one past. You pull a few strings, you work a few doubles, and you get the long weekend off. Well, at least two days – where one happens to be your day off anyways (figures, right?).
jump on the bed with excitement pack your bags and get the hell out of dodge. You get on that highway quicker than your boss can ask you to come back to work, and head up north.
You start to remember what it’s like to have the wind blowing in your hair.
And how to take bad self pictures.
But it doesn’t matter, because you made it.
And now you can have fun doing all the non-work things like, playing with the pups.
Attempt at waterskiing on one ski.
Entering in your very first canoe race.
Sinking your canoe in your very first canoe race + being rescued.
Having your biggest competitors sink their canoe, too, and creating your own canoe race back to shore.
Winning your own canoe race kind of makes up for the sinking part.
The fun at the cottage does not stop here. It is only just beginning.
To be continued…
