Would send my wife to get a full body massage.  This COVID cr@p has her all tensed up (and the fact that I have an immunosuppressed system).  She probably wouldn't go, though, due to COVID.

I think I'd go to the salon and maybe have my hair done! I haven't had a good cut and color since February 2020! Right before my sons wedding. Then Covid hit and well, I've not felt comfortable to have it done! Things are improving now so I'd love to cover all this gray! Hahaha

To win $200 would be a blessing. I love winning but so far haven't won anything on AARP. Oh, I tried but no such luck.

I tried the sweepstakes but didn't win. I tried the other items that were there but no such luck. I pretty much gave up on winning anything.  I think that it is not meant for me so I stop trying to win. I don't even try yo win anything anymore. 

God bless all of you you have won prizes and money.

Winning $200 would be a huge blessing for me. I have never won anything on AARP but to all of you that have won, it was a blessing. I entered the sweeps stakes too but never won. God bless all of you that have won anything on AARP. I did try to win but no such luck. God bless you all.

Just a day of relaxation for myself. Getaway and just enjoy myself. No worries, no bill paying, nobody to bother me just relax and enjoy myself.

I would take a day off from babysitting my great grand child and a friends grand child. I would ignore or better yet turn off the alarm clock set for 7am and sleep in. I would fix pancakes for breakfast with plenty of butter and syrup. Take a nice leisurely bath, remembering to mute all the phones. I would put on one of my new outfits that still has the tag on it and go get my friend who I have been missing having weekly lunch with and go to our favorite restaurant and have a long lunch catching up on every thing we have been missing for over a year. Yes, we talked over the phone, but it isn't rewarding as face to face.

Start with morning tea in the garden and buy fresh organic fruits to sit by the sea and listen to the waves basking in the afternoon sun. Adjoining to the bandshell to finish the evening with music remembering the 70s era,

I would go to the south central Ozarks, rent a cabin by a waterfall, pick up a really nice meal paint, write and  putter about by the water until the sun goes down.

Lost my husband to kidney failure and my daughter and grandkids moved in with me. With no life insurance it has been hard. My other daughter and son-in-law are taking me on a short vacation to relax a bit due to my high blood pressure. I would buy my a new outfit and take them out to dinner for taking me on a all expense paid vacation.

I'd drive to Savannah and tour some of the historical museums there.  Since I live nearby you would think I have already visited them but I guess I kept thinking I can go anytime.  Well if I win the $200 I can afford to take the day off work and go and play tourist and "Just Do It !!!!"  Then go to a restaurant I have never tried to support small business in our area.  Thank you!

I would go on a driving tour of the CA coastline near Santa Cruz.  We would also get out and walk down to the water and look for whales and other sea life.  It can be very relaxing listening to the waves coming and going.

Give $200 to my local animal shelter, and spend a day volunteering there to care for and clean up after the animals.

I would definitely head out for a massage! Then I would head to a golf course with a friend and play 18 holes of golf.  Afterwards, we would head to an outside eatery and enjoy the day with some adult beverages!

Grateful that I’ve now received the COVID vaccine, and eager to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work they’ve put into a full year of virtual learning, I would take my three grandkids to see the spectacular tulip fields in bloom in Skagit County, WA, an hour’s drive away. Then we’d stop for awesome ice cream cones at Snow Goose Produce.

Spend the day and night, hiking and boating, at the Okefenokee Swamp, one of the most pristine and amazing natural places in the US.  The habitat, the quiet and the beauty of nature makes one feel a world away from the angst and hustle of current life.

☀️With a day off, my husband and I would head south to warmer weather and spend a day at a friend's condo. We would buy a lovely picnic lunch and just sit in the sun and thaw out ☀️
