Just a reminder that this Saturday is the second free tennis event for kids! COS Tennis is hosting a free tennis play day this Saturday, May 25th from 10 AM to noon at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs! Kids up to age 14 can attend to play tennis games and activities from 10 AM to noon. They’ll provide all of the equipment, plus some prizes and refreshments.
Groupon has a deal today for the local Mollica’s Italian Market & Deli: you can get two entrees with two side soups or salads (up to a $29.90 value) with two large cannoli (an $8 value) for $18.95. There’s also a similar deal for lunch. You can buy up to two per person, and the Groupon is valid for 90 days after purchase.
Once we move, we’ll be on well water and septic for the first time in our married lives. I realized the other day that this could be a huge learning curve for me, so if you have experience with well water and septic systems, please share your tips! (Keep the horror stories to a minimum, please, so as not to cause me to worry. ;) I think laundry is my big question right now – no clue if the water will be hard or soft or what, and I’m thinking that could really change how I do laundry. Or is it not a big deal? Please help me!
So, how many of you iron on a regular basis? I was talking to my sister the other day and mentioned I was ironing, and she said “I thought I was the only one that ironed these days!” I don’t iron a ton of stuff, but I iron all of Jeremy’s dress shirts and have for as long as we’ve been married. I shy away from stuff that needs to be ironed for myself and the kids (curse you, rolly-uppy hems on girls’ skirts!), but both Jeremy and I like his dress shirts pressed so I’ll do that to my dying day.
Speaking of ironing, my oldest said that we should hire a servant when we move because the house is big – and he suggested paying the servant $1.00 a day. I don’t think the house is big enough to warrant a servant but if we can find one for $1.00 a day, I’d totally take the help! Maybe I should ask him if he wants the job…
This morning reminded me so much of the day of the first trip that Jeremy and I took to Colorado Springs, right after we were married. We came in at night, during a horrible storm, and stayed at a hotel that we are now like, “Hmm, probably wouldn’t stay there now!” The next day was foggy and cool, like this morning was, and we drove around in circles in the Broadmoor area for hours, trying to figure out how to get on Gold Camp Road to get to Cripple Creek. (Of course you can’t by getting on Gold Camp north of the Broadmoor, because there’s a collapsed tunnel, but the maps didn’t tell us that, and the fog made it even more complicated!)
I guess the foggy days are so rare here that every time there is one, it brings back that memory! It’s a good one, though, because that trip to Colorado was the one that made us decided that we really wanted to live here.

Recently I realized I hadn’t gotten my personalized coupons in the mail from King Soopers for awhile. This has happened before, but an update to my King Soopers card fixed it. But, I just got an email from someone else who’s stopped getting them, too, and I’m wondering if they’ve just totally stopped sending them out. Have any of you received the personalized coupons in the mail from King Soopers lately? Click here to comment.
You can earn double fuel points (2 points for every dollar) on grocery, not gift card, purchases at King Soopers now through June 30th! You have to load a special digital coupon to your King Soopers card to receive the bonus, and it looks like you have to load it once per month (so you might want to set a reminder to do it again on June 1st).
Both Salvation Army and Arc Thrift Stores will be having a 50% off sale for Memorial Day weekend! Salvation Army will have the entire store (excluding jewelry) 50% off on Friday, Saturday, and Monday; and Arc will have 50% off everything except current color tags this Saturday through Monday.
