I would have a caregiver come in for my mom and then do whatever I want and whenever I want. Like a walk in a park, window shopping, gardening, and so many more choices.

I would take my wife to the beach and our favorite beach is St.Pete Beach. We would eat at our favorite restaurant BRASS MONKEY and just enjoy the day after such a hard month where we lost her mother. I want to just take here away for a day trip!!!!

Well...Hello, Everybody!!! If I had a full day off, free of responsibilities and had $200 to spend. I would pay for a rental car for a day, drive out towards Mt Rainier to visit my Beautiful, Loving, Elderly and sick Mother. I haven't seen my Mom in almost a year because we live more than 70 miles apart and neither one of us have a vehicle. So, this was a complete no brainer for me!!! I LOVE YOU MOM!!! If I won...then what ever my Moms heart desired that day would be hers!!!! 💗💗💗 ~ Love Your Daughter, Darci M.

I'd take a short road trip...maybe to a waterfall. I'd also stop at this restaurant I've been wanting to try for a few years now.

What would you do with a day off and $200?  I would spend the day by starting off with a "sleep in" time. First, once ready for the day, head to the nearest Starbucks for a good cup of "joe" and relax & sip my goodness in a cup.  Next, would be a lil window shopping and possibly purchase a "me-day" gift then off to lunch.  Thirdly, comes my afternoon massage to really relax.  Once my massage is done, its time for more relaxation rest. Lastly, my day would be finish off with a good ole dinner from Carrabbas or Bonefish Grill.  This would be an enjoyable day and greatly appreciated AARP.  Thanks for the chance and opportunity!  🙂  LsBrown

We haven't been able to go to my happy place since COVID. I would pack us up for a trip to Maine. My partner has lost two brothers and we can't grieve properly until we get back to the family in Maine. They give the best hugs ever! The hugs are long and tight. I'm crying just writing this. It's not just going to be nice,  it will be a necessary factor to our mental health to return to the beauty of the Western Mountains of Maine.

After being cooped up in the house for Covid, I would either take a road trip to Zion National Park or go to Vegas for the weekend.

I would probably end up taking the day to get my cats vaccinated (I have 6, so it takes a few trips and a chunk of change). 🙂

Since the pandemic, the idea of going to a spa has been unimaginable! I would spend a total me-time day by taking a yoga class, and then getting a spa treatment or two! Afterwards, I would buy my husband a cocktail at a local outdoor pub and watch the sun set on a perfect day!

I would use the $200 to purchase additional weights, kettlebells, battle ropes, and other equipment take it all to the park, and offer a free day of exercise for those in my community who are 50 or older. I am a spin instructor and with COVID I see that many people my age have stopped exercising. This outdoor activity would allow people to not only try something new, meet others and also get back on track with their exercise programs,

I would plan a spa day at a local hotel that has a great pool, so I could hang out at the pool after being pampered.

What would I do with $200.00 a day?

First, I would take my youngest granddaughter probably to Disneyland, she was force to stop going to her daycare school when her mom came down with Covid 19, in January. Now. she has been introduced to the "new" on line school and she's not the same eager, sharp and outgoing little 5 yr. old girl. And because her Mom works 6 days a week, my little granddaughter has been also deprived with having more time with "mami"; she deserves to have some fun time where she will enjoy herself and hopefully feel free to be outgoing and playful.

Second; I will give the money to my daughter, so she can take couple of days off from work and enjoy her little 5 yr old girl.
