Gee I had forgotten about this website until today. I'm a summer only cottage rental business so am stressing tremendously about summer. Luckily I have mostly the same guests every year so if my state will get their act together and tell us what the regulations will be, I think I can swing it. Mostly though, my father started this place in 1956. I had a career for 20 years but always wanted to be here running it with him. I have been here now for 15 years but my father passed away suddenly three years ago, his first night back at his winter home, at 91. He had been here with me all summer working and doing carpentry just like he always did. Needless to say I have crumbled since I lost him. Doing it alone was getting better each year, last summer I found some joy again. Now comes this year. I am so exhausted mentally and financially I am losing all of my stamina to keep going. But keeping his legacy going is more important to me than anything. Just venting here in case anyone can offer any tiny little words of comfort. I'm turning 60 in October so, I think you can imagine my mindset right now. Thanks for listening.
