How are you and your husband splitting up the responsibility of the thank you notes?
I am finding that I am writing all the notes and my husband is simply signing his name. Which sucks. But if they were up to him they would never get done.

My FI and I arn’t married yet, but we have started recieving gifts, so we have started on the thank you notes. And, NO he is not helping write them, like your guy he is only signing his name too 🙂
But, FI has REALLY bad & ugly handwriting, so I’m stuck doing them so that our guests can read them 🙂

We aren’t married yet, but i’m sure he wont be helping. or signing his own name. i’m ok with that, he helps with a lot of other things.

We did them together at the same time. I wrote the ones for my family while he wrote the ones for his family, and we had them all done in an afternoon. Make a date with your hubby to work on them together; then you don’t have to do all of them yourself!

It is NWR … but we are doing thank-you notes right now for our housewarming party. I hand-made all the thank-you cards and wrote the cards to my family and friends. Mine are done, his are not even started and are sitting on his desk in the basement … grrr!

Absolutely! We did them together. I wrote a “template” for different kinds of gifts (cash, china, etc) and then we both used the termplates to write the individual notes.

I made my husband chip in- he did thankyous for his friends and family and I did for mine- but we both signed our names on all of them.

I finished my side of the thank you cards two weeks ago but my husband just started working on his today. If it were up to him, they would definitely never get done. I’ve helped him out a bit by printing out all of the envelopes. Now it’s up to him to finish!

I wrote ALL of ours. Even had to sign hubby’s name for him…lol. But I didn’t really mind since I’ve always been more of a letter-writer. If I had let hubby do any, he would have just written the words “Thank You”, signed his name, then be done with it. Hopefully your hubby starts to pitch in a little more! Your hand is probably getting tired!

That’s what were doing, I write them he signs and stamps envelope and seals it. His job to mail as well.

YES he will be helping write them. We already agreed that we’d split it up by his family and my family and we’d just divide the friend thank you notes down the middle. I didn’t realize how lucky I was to have someone willing to help and who will totally do it in a timely manner. Haha.

We originally agreed that we would each do half, and sign the cards written by the other person. I finished mine in a few days but he hadn’t even started, which was understandable due to work issues, things going on in our life, etc. So to help out I wrote some of his for him to make it easier (and because I just wanted it to be done).
You can guess where this is going – I’ve now written about two thirds of the thank yous. He’s gotten around to writing a few, but I have a feeling that I will be writing the remaining ones over the weekend, while he’s out of town. I did bring this on myself though, lol.

We are so far from this stage it’s not funny – but he knows he’ll be helping! Plus, he really has pretty decent handwriting that is often easier to read than mine! I will kick his butt if he tries to shirk on that responsibility!

That’s a negative. He did thank me profusely for writing them all, multiple times, though. I’d have made him write half if he lived with me, but it would have been a pain (and pricey!) to fedex him half, then get him to deliver them to the PO

We split our TY notes down the middle. I was responsible for writing my side, he did his, then we signed each others. We divided up the ones to our mutual friends, so one person wasn’t stuck doing all the cards.
