I would take a trip to Central Florida, hire a fishing expert and fish for one of the large mouth black bass that make Florida one of the best fishing locations in the US. I have postponed fishing for way too many years, life's requirements had to come first.

I would buy as many flats of flowers as possible and plant them in my front yard to give my neighbors something wonderful to experience.  You can’t help but smile when you see a plethora of flowers rising up to meet you

I would get in our car with my husband and drive to Virginia Beach, VA, walk on the board walk, eat at our favorite restaurant, watch the sun set and spend the first night away from home in a year at a 4 star hotel.

Just got over coronavirus.  My 2 sisters were tremendous. Bought food, supportive, got me to doctor for my negative diagnosis after 2 weeks.  I would love to take them for a great dinner and my great brother-in-law, too.

If I was lucky enough to win-I would make a donation to our church.  Then we went take a trip to our favorite lake for a picnic-just to get out of the house for awhile.

My cat Noah has heart issues so if I won the $200 I would use the money to cover his vet bills , his RX medication and his  prescription food he needs to stay healthy.  Couldn't have dealt with  the Covid  stay at home orders  with out my 2 cats.

I would take it in conjunction with a weekend and spend the weekend fixing my half -painted out-dated kitchen and buy some things to help organize it better. Sounds like work to some, but that would be fun for me.

Terri, I have always envied ladies who get to enjoy a real pampering spa day.  While in the past, I was able to have a massage now and then before Covid, I never have had a facial or any other pampering.  I am not interested in a mani or pedi but I sure would like to see what else is out there and offered at a spa.  I was getting my former massages at a chiropractor's office.  If there was any leftover money, I would treat my wonderful husband to lunch.

If I won the "Day off and $200 contest", I would take my daughter, Marie and our good friend, Vicki on a day trip to the San Isabelle mountains. We would stop at their quaint little restaurant for lunch, just enjoying each other's company. Then when we finish eating we would go through their gift shop and choose a souvenir for each other but that's not the end of our day. To top it off,  we would have to sample different varieties of their "Amazing Home Made Fudge" before purchasing 3 to 4 lbs each of our favorites to take home and share with our families.❤ Thank you for this opportunity to Day Dream!😊

I don't need a day off. I need days on. I was laid off last March 19th. I still have my keys to work. Just not busy enough to bring back office personnel.  I apply everywhere for jobs. Other states as well. The 200 dollars would go to a bill.

Buy new plants for my garden and a bouquet of flowers for my table and invite my vaccinated friends to relax over a glass of wine as we celebrate spring and the ability to get together again.
