Howdy from Texas!  I would absolutely LOVE to pass along the $ to my awesome husband and daughter for a day of fishing!  They have both been so dedicated to job and college, along with doing much more!  They both deserve a day of relaxation and fun!  Thank you so much for the chance to share!  Stay strong and well!

I'd buy some new plants for our front yard from the local nursery to help support a local business.  And, then stop by a local restaurant and get lunch before an afternoon of yard work -- another local business to support.

I would go for a paddle in my kayak on the Buffalo River and then stop for a pint and a nice lunch at Gene McCarthy’s. Afterwards, I would take a hike at Tifft Nature Preserve, and then stop for an ice cream cone at Churn.

I would go to the spa and have a deep tissue massage and get my nails done. Or I could go relax at a hotel and sit by the pool and read and sit in the hot in to relax after working out!!

If I won $200, I would take my two close friends out to lunch, then to the movies, then to get a manicure and pedicure. Then we would go for drinks and relaxation for the rest of the evening! No kids! No men!

If I would be so blessed to win, I would do whatever my mind leads me to do as one blessed to be free of the hustle and bustle of life in general.  My greatest joy will be to go to the park and watch the happy children at play. I will also reflect on the beauty of my life thus far and how I hope to progress in the future as a nurturer to all in whatever capacity I can.  I love sharing my joy!!!

If I was selected as a winner, I would take a much-needed day at a spa for a massage, facial, great healthy food, and total R&R! My Mom, also an AARP member, recently transitioned and this would be a much-welcomed reward to heal from it all.

My dream day off would be to get our little vintage camper out of storage, and take a road trip to one of our state parks. It would be great to find a quiet spot, go hiking to seek out wildflowers and bird watch, and then relax at our campsite for a nice, simple meal around the campfire. The day off would extend overnight because some of the best sleeping is done in the camper!  After a long, isolated winter, the idea of being in nature with my husband and dog sounds like a wonderful dream. Have the $200 would easily cover the cost of gasoline, food, park entry and a campsite. There might even be enough left over to allow for a special bottle of wine from a local winery.

I would spend the money and the day to visit my daughter who I have not seen since Christmas 2019. The covid separations have been frustrating and painful.  Life is short and I would meet her somewhere safe where we could be in a clean, sanitized location such as a beach . I live near DC and she's in NJ for her job.  I miss her so much. The money would pay for travel costs.  It's been very painful to be separated from our adult children and grandchildren.

I would like to have this money to buy groceries for my family of 5! We are still recovering from the Texas winter disaster so this money will help us replenish our freezer and refrigerator. Also any left over, we will pay bills. Thanks so much

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.

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.

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.
