haha!  I’d weened myself for a little bit, but this week has been excruciating at work and I missed it, so I’m back in the midst of an obsession.  And I too should be writing thank you  notes.  I had dreamed of getting all 90-something written before our one-month mark, but that came and went.  Our two month mark is a crazy-stressful day at work and the cause of my craptastic week, so I’m still holding out hope they’ll all be done by October 26. 

And to answer your question–I’m probably STILL on here less than i was before the wedding, but it’s the first thing I check when I get home from work and the last thing I do before bed these days.  I guess I really just cut out the mid-workday hours for the most part.

I hear you! I check in every day for the most part, but I am on much much less than I used to be. Not sure why exactly. I know I got a LOT busier after the wedding (which is hard to believe, but it’s true based on my schedule this year), and I have been having to get up a lot earlier than I did last year… so that cuts into my nighttime weddingbee ritual! I also can’t go on weddingbee at my new job, like I used to. And lastly, I think it depresses me a little bit to see so many people still planning their wedding when I am sadly, done with my own planning! I want to do it all over again! AHH!

I just finished writing my Thank You Cards to everyone that was invited from my side of the family.  It took a while, but I’m glad it got done.  

I set a date that I had to get it done, just like deadlines from work.  Maybe that would help you accomplish your goal.

Me too. I just can’t get motivated to do them. Or anything wedding related! My dress is hanging in the spare bedroom waiting to be cleaned and preserved and/or sold. I still have two boxes of wedding junk in our living room I haven’t even gone through. And lets not even talk about downloading/saving all the non pro pics our family and friends took. I need another week to <span style=”text-decoration: line-through;”>procrastinate assess what needs done.

I think it has gotten worse for me because prior to the wedding I didn’t have time to be on the Bee as much as I wanted to because I was busy organizing and finishing DIY projects. So now that I have nothing to do to keep me busy, wedding-related at least, I come here to get my fix.

I’m on weddingbee about the same.  I love it too much!

PS. Thank you notes plagued me for the 3 whole months, but I finally finished them last week.  Biggest relief of my life (I had 96 to write!!)

I didn’t even discover weddingbee until AFTER my wedding! I know…*GASP*! So I’m definitely on here way more now than before…haha. Seriously though, despite my late discovery, I am still in love with this wonderful hive and enjoy spending time on Weddingbee when I have the chance πŸ˜€

Oh, girl! You better get on with those thank you notes. I have to be honest here, I have heard from multiple family members about different weddings/bridal showers/baby showers/etc over the years (keep in mind, one side of my family is sooooo proper it makes me crazy some days) – “oh my gosh, I didn’t get a thank you until X days/weeks/months after I <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>know she got my gift” or “I didn’t ever get a thank you at all!” I know, it’s borderline insane to say stuff like that, but people might start to wonder. Also, they have books out there for how to write ‘original’ thank you notes to each person for their gift if you are stuck on what to write (because although it is unlikely, somebody might realize you wrote the EXACT SAME thank you to them that you wrote to somebody else, just inserting their gift name and their name on the card! OOoops!).

I think I’m on Weddingbee about the same, if not a little more than I was before the wedding.  I can’t see myself ever leaving the ‘Bee! πŸ™‚
