So… anyone else magically a widow as soon as the thank you notes come out?
I swear, the moment I pull out the list of gifts and the box of thank you cards, my husband vanishes into thin air.
He loved spending the cash and gift cards and cashing the checks. But when it comes time to sit down and write thank yous, he’s a total bum.

@apex: when I read the first line, I thought they were only addressed to you! HAHA But yes, same with planning on my end!

I had a “rule” that we couldn’t spend/use any of the gifts until we wrote all the thank-you cards. The gifts were all put into our spare bedroom until we got done with the thank-yous. (DH was still reluctant to write them, but I cornered him and made him do his half.)

@abbyful: That’s brilliant. 🙂

I knew it would be more trouble to nag him endlessly than to just do it myself. He drags his feet about everything. So I just let him off the hook completely. Besides I’m a much better writer:)

I just wrote them all, he has terrible handwriting and can’t spell to save his life. I would have wasted more time watching over his shoulder.

I’ve already started prepping Mr.ND with the threat that he either helps with half, or he does all of his own guests (which is WAY over half with his large extended family). I’m sure when the time comes he’ll happily fill his quota rather than doing his actual ‘share.’
@abbyful: That’s a GREAT idea.
