Labor Day Weekend

Posted on: September 6, 2009


As a commuter, I am always very excited about three day weekends. Not driving to and from school means I can save about 140 miles of travel and I don’t even want to think about how much gas money. I’m so pumped about what I’m NOT doing (driving) that I haven’t even given any thought to what I AM doing.

That aside, Labor Day means the unofficial end of summer. I’m hoping this is also the unofficial end of summer-sized gas prices. Maybe I can even stop eating up fuel with maxed out air conditioning. Please please please can we have an early autumn this year?

In short, I’m giddy about my “vehicle-cation” this weekend. Is anyone taking advantage of the time off to drive somewhere fun?

P.S….  Anyone else surprised to learn Labor Day originated in Canada?
