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). 🙂

I would get a body message at the spa. Then buy a nice seafood dinner to go at my favorite restaurant.

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 go to Alki Beach, take a walk, and eat fish & chips at an outdoor cafe!

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 treat my husband to a day of relaxation of his choice after his medical treatments.

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.

I would use the reward to send the boys away for the day. I live with four guys and they're rarely all gone at the same time...

I would use the money to take a day trip with my dad, mom, and sister. The day trip would be to a national park my dad has always wanted to visit. Throughout the years he has put up with vacations that aren't typically his favorite for us. Such as the beach or waterparks, he isn't one to like crowds and instead prefers the beauty of nature. He has always been a fan of national parks, so I would take him to one upstate he said he used to spend a lot of time at when he was younger. Afterward, I would treat him and the rest of the family to whatever they would want for diner.
