Would appreciate some extra time off.  My husband and I have been married for 48 yrs.  and we both worked a number of extra jobs.  I worked two to help make sure our kids had what they needed for their activites and my husband also had a tree buisness for his second job.  I still am working as much as my body will let me.  We are the type of people not to ask for anything but watched your show today and realized how wonderful our relationship is and would love to have a little fun with my husband while we still can.  thanks for your time   Jennie Lonski

Good day, I'm Teresa,

I would love to take a day.

A little about me, I'm a single mother of 4 and Nana of 1.

I've been single 15 years, raising my children.

I've worked for 35 years as a machinist /mechanic,  I work 7 days a week.

If I have a day off I would love to take all my kids to eat, and enjoy them all together at one table.

Thank you Teresa Esquivel

I am 64 years old and single and still working. I have been Nursing for 28 years and have worked a lot of overtime. For the last year I switched to another job and now getting through work at 4:30 and at least now feel like I have a life. I would love to have a day off and enjoy a day at a spa with my friends. Since I am single I don't have a lot of extra money being divorced since 2005. It would be deeply appreciated!

I am 70 years and raised 3 children by myself.  The only vacation I've ever had is visiting with family.  I couldn't afford to take an actual vacation.  I would like to fly to CA and visit with my sister then us drive to **bleep**.  Both of my sister this past year have had strokes.  I would like us to spend sometime together before it's to late.  So please consider me for the $500 vacation gift cars.

I would love to take a day off. I am a senior citizen and worked all my life. Mostly caring for elderly people. Never have taken a vacation and no time for myself. This would be a great reward for myself.

I would love to be considered as 1 of those to be picked. I  am a mother of 2, 26, 23 and adopted a third age 13. I am a person that doesn't think of herself first I always put my family,  siblings and parents first. My mom past away in 2015, so I am that person that helps out my father within his household and helps out with my disabled brother, plus 2 grandkids that keeps me busy, they love grandma house.

I would love a vacation day or two. I'm retired but haven't been on vacation in the last 4 years and that was with the kids. I feel I'm over due for one and I really in need of one. I have a busy schedule I work part-time, watch my grandkids, and assisting my oldest sister who has medical issues. With that said, all that takes up alot of my time. I could use a day at the spa or wine tasting for the day. Sound wonderful.

I work 5 days a week but am on call 7 days a week. I don't have any free time for myself and really can't afford to take off. It would be great to have the money to take off work for a day just for me. Please help me get a day out for me. Thanks
