If I became the winner of the $200. I would do a in home massage, I work with children from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm and it takes a tole on my body. After that great massage I would order in some lunch and spend the day catching up on my reading. I have so many books I would love to read.
For the first time in 50 years I had a summer off; I am a special education school teacher. Like many of my generation I started working in my mid teens. (My first job was babysitting a family of 5, their parents owned a breakfast/lunch dinner.) I have spent vacations and weekends working as a lifeguard, a tutor, a server / waitress. My husband and I have raised two amazing sons. Our anniversary was last June, 40 years together. COVID came and my weekend get away disappeared. (As did my second job; which is why I had last summer off,) I would like to celebrate our life together. Perhaps a nice drive to get out of the house, a grocery trip for a special meal, a family dinner.
It's March and that means fresh new season, fresh air and kites. I would go flying and sailing in the wind like my kite. I would like to circle the world, but I'm try to let my kite explore while I'll stay on the ground. Trust me, seeing him free will make me free, also.
The first thing to come to mind is how much I've wanted for years to spend a weekend exploring The Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway in north Oregon that runs from Troutdale to Cascade Locks. Lots of waterfalls, parks, historical sites, greenery, hiking trails, viewpoints, etc. along the length of it. Take along some sandwiches, camping gear, fishing tackle, camera, and a friend or two. Explore, relax, enjoy... Check out some antique shops at either end of the area. Visit some natural hot springs nearby to soak & bathe in the deliciously warm water that never runs out... unlike most hot water heaters. 🙂 When I return to "civilization," visit a yummy little burger & ice cream shack in Cascade Locks. ❤️
If lucky enough to win, I would focus on my only child, my Son, who came to rescue me after many years of domestic abuse that had finally escalated to physical violence. We BOTH would benefit from massages then spending time together doing anything or nothing. There is no $$value on this!
Worked so many hours during lockdown (retail, filling online orders) I didn't get to do much at all for my gardens. They got overrun with weeds and the good rain actually broke down the last of the boards holding the soil in my raised beds. I'd use the $200 to hire an energetic youth to help me put the gardens to right (dig weeds) and buy something more permanent for the garden walls. Need our (organic) food beds more than ever this year. Like my father before me I find working the soil centering, soothing, satisfying. Love seeing my family enjoy what I can grow in this small suburban yard.
ahh I would go local all the way...get my hair done first, it needs a noce cut, right after get an hour long message, then a stop off at my favorite restaurant and have a nice relaxing dinner with wine...get home, kick my feet up and watch a movie!
