Best Mother’s Day Present Ever

Mom. She does so much for everyone else. Isn’t it time she took care of herself for a change?

 

Fourteen years ago I became a mother in April, and for my first Mother’s Day in May I asked for a membership in an all-women’s gym. I worked full-time. My baby kept me up all night. I was a walking zombie most of the time. I was not sure I would have the time or energy to actually go to a gym. But I needed Me Time. We got a three-month membership to The Spa, Fitness for Women in Upland just to try it out.

What a Godsend the Spa became! When I stepped through the doors I left the hectic world behind. When those doors shut last year due to financial problems, I was devastated, as were hundreds of other ladies who had been going there for years. Some of us started a Facebook Page to connect. We were thrilled when we learned that a former owner was taking back the facility and was going to renew the place and open it up as Shirlee’s Fitness Club for Women.

Workers have been busy for four months improving the place inside and out, and Shirlee’s will be opening soon. The wait has been excruciating for many of us, as we want our exercise oasis back! (You can see pictures of the new Shirlee’s on Shirlee’s FB page.)

My baby girl turned 14 in April, and is now old enough to join the gym herself. When Shirlee’s opens, (hopefully soon), she, too, will be a member. High school brings overwhelming stress for girls her age: grades, extracurricular activities, and social life in the age of FB, for example. I am hoping that Shirlee’s become an oasis for her as well—a place where she can relax, recharge, and be inspired by women of all ages, shapes, and sizes supporting each other.

If you know of a mom who needs some Me Time, let her know about Shirlee’s. Maybe she can ask for a Shirlee’s membership for Mother’s Day.

 

 

Half Off Restaurant Coupons Save You Money!

How to Save Half Off or More at Restaurants

Want to go out to eat, but think it’s too expensive? Think again. Did you know you can save as much as half off restaurant coupons? I’ll let you in on a little secret: the place to get these great restaurant coupons is restaurant.com. The usual deal they have is $10 for a $20 coupon or $25 for a $50 coupon.  That means you get to go out for half off!   But sometimes they have even better promotional deals.

I was a bit skeptical when I bought my first restaurant.com coupon.  But the promotion was too good to pass up.  The transaction went quickly, I printed out the coupon, and took the family out. The restaurant accepted the coupon no question. So I went back and bought several more coupons! I used them myself and gave them away as gifts.

You can easily find restaurants in your area that have coupons by putting your zip code into the restaurant.com site. All the offers come up with the details. Some coupons do require a minimum purchase and most require that the tip be based on the actual price, not the discounted price. But having been a server in grad school, I think the policy is fair, especially when you get one of the better promotions.

Below is a link for restaurant.com’s latest offers. Enjoy.
