I would likely spend a relaxing day at home and put the $200 toward upcoming needed dental work, after tithing a portion to a non profit, since I have no dental insurance.

I would take a good day and do my garden.  Put in new soil, get it ready to plant: tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and I want to try watermelon!

I would take my adult deaf daughter who also struggles daily with mental health challenges to Indian Rocks Beach to stay in a motel on the beach to celebrate our journey. Toast to God for a blessed life. There's always a solution sometimes it takes a lot of attempts but success is in view!

I need days on. Was laid off last March 19th. Still have my keys to work. Not busy enough to bring back office personnel.  Apply for jobs all over. Other states as well. As for the 200 dollars. Pay a bill.

Now that I've had my Covid vaccine, I'd spend the day at a spa-  dry brush scrub to get rid of the dry skin that has built up over the housebound months, massage to perk up those lazy muscles, pedicure for the coming sandal months, and manicure with peachy summer polish.

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 head straight to the nursery, buy vegetable plants and hire someone to help me plant my garden.

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.
