lol. We did have some champagne last night (though, still the cheap $6 stuff because I am a major cheapo like that) and I surprised him by calling him outside and me and my sister sprayed him with champagne. He loved it.
We are taking taxes into account. One of the guys in the group has a dad who is a tax consultant and they are working out the best way to pay the least amount of taxes on it. Hopefully they can split the money before taxes so there is less taken out. Not that this is all about the money. We would just REALLY like as much of it as possible!
Oh, and believe me we are making sure to enjoy some of it! The vast majority is going into savings for future houses, kids, kids college, retirement, emergency, etc. We figure, the sooner we jump start this savings the better we will be in the long run. Mr. Hedgie informed me that it has been a dream of his to be able to hand me a giant wad of cash and tell me to just “have fun with it” and so he is going to make sure that happens. We are taking a grand and each getting $500 to do with what we please. Only rule: It can’t be something we NEED like groceries or anything. It has to be something we just WANT. WE are never able to do that so this is a HUGE deal. I am pretty sure he is getting his gun. We will use another grand (at max… probably wont use it all) to finish getting furniture and household stuff we still need. Everything else? Savings. We are trying to be smart without refusing to let ourselves enjoy atleast some of it.
I don’t want this all to sound like it is all about the money. It SO isn’t! He is brilliant and did a completely awesomely amazing thing and I am so darn proud of him! This brain is one of the reasons I married him.

Also, I so giggled outloud at this post! I would very much like to be hobnobbing on a fabuous yacht. And if one day I get rich enough to get one, I will make sure you are on it with me! lol. Aslo, Mrs. Hedgie… MRS. Still not used to that but I like it! Now only if I could change my name on here…
Mr. Hedgie is going to be so amused and excited by all the contratulations. So, thank you for making his day!
