super tacky but i can not say it to anyone i know

I know it is super tacky to discuss ones income in this way but Im sooo damned excited and can not say it to any one... so Im going to do it here anonymously. I just have to say it before I burst. Hubby just called to let me know that his holiday bonus is going to be about 100,000 holy heck... omg.... I can not wait!!!

I feel I must ask a question since Im putting it here... so how about... what would YOU do with that holiday bonus?????

  • Holy can I ask what he does???

    We get about $1,000 and that usualy is our Christmas shopping money. But we are already almost done gift buying, so it will go towards paying off our car a bit sooner

  • Pay the back payments on my house so we can continue to live there. :0( And that would only be a small portion of it. I would go ahead and pay my proporty taxes for the year and get DH a car that runs well and isn't from 93'. Then I would help my dad buy my moms meds for a few months.

  • That's great!! When my husband gets a big bonus it is taxed close to 50%. Be prepared for that. But still, wonderful news!!

  • its a tease to think of that answer... if we got a 100,000 bonus... or even if my dh made 100,000 for just 1 year.. It would change our life forever.. Soooo much would be different..

    the best bonus my dh got (once) was about $1,000 & at the time it all went straight to medical bills so it couldnt help in better ourself ..
