(Closed) Thank you cards are a killer…

Oh man, I was so unmotivated to do our thank you notes.  My best advice is to divid them up and try to set a goal for yourself.  I made myself do 10 a day for a while, until they were done.  I also asked my husband to help–he wrote the notes for his family and I did mine.

So glad they are done now!  I didn’t have the hardest time since the wedding was small.

We’ve been married not quite a month yet.  The 28th will be exactly a month.  I haven’t done any yet.  Me and the DH are planning on getting the thank you cards done during Christmas and new years.  I can feel the procratinating starting already.  I don’t know what to say.  I don’t want it to feel like I’m writing the same message to everyone.  But yet, I don’t want it to be a novel because then I will never get the 100 thank you notes that I have to do out. The DH said he would do his side.  I hope he keeps his word.

My DH suggested writing it on the computer… I’m like… NO!

I’m still doing mine … I am really trying to get them done before new years because I don’t want to still be writing thank you cards in 2010!  And we don’t even have that many!

I literally had a knot in my stomach till all our thank you cards were sent out. Some didn’t get sent out till 6 months after our wedding. Embarassed

I made myself do them by watching reruns and drinking wine. I did 20 a night until they were done. Blegh. Necessary evils, I tell you!

I just sent the last batch off! 3-4 months after the wedding.  I felt awful about it, but I’m so happy they’re gone!

We had a week between our wedding and honeymoon…and I did all 150 of them that week!  I drove my husband nuts but it was so nice to come home and not have to worry about finding time to get them all done.  They are kind of a bummer to write.

Congrats on getting all yours done 808 (and you other organized folks too)!

Mine are still in progress…I’ve always been able to get TY cards done within a week of whatever event (showers, graduation etc) but this is a huge pile! I’m hoping to have it all done by New Years though.

See, I love handwriting cards and letters.  I’m kindof looking forward to them a little bit . . . we’ll see if I change my tune after the wedding 🙂

I don’t mind writing thank you notes usually but I sprained my right wrist a few months ago and writing is so painful.  I really wanted to type mine as well but I tried to get each bunch done after each shower to stay on track.
