It can be a bit uncomfortable if you are not used to handwriting, but it’s really not that big a deal if you do a few at a a time. Make sure you set yourself up in proper postion at a desk, not sitting watching TV.

There is also no reason your Darling Husband can’t do some of the wedding thank-you notes.

I wrote all of mine because Darling Husband has terrible handwriting. I really enjoyed writing them though because I really appreciated the gifts and thoughtfulness. I probably wrote 10/day.

@katie1494:  I know what you mean! I had a day off of work a few weeks ago so I figured I should get my shower thank yous done. I finished 40 that day (I had one large shower as I live out of state) and my hand hurt so bad! Fiance will be helping with the wedding ones, but I figured since I was off and he was at work I should be productive. I will definitely be spacing out the wedding ones a little more!!

@katie1494:  As a tip, keep a heating pad or something similar close by. When your hard starts cramping, rest it up on the heat to loosen the muscles. I have constant muscle cramps and spasms and this always helps relieve them. I have a Magic Bag that I throw in the microwave whenever I feel a flare up. Since it would probably be best to have the constant source close by to where you’re writing, I think a heating pad that plugs in may be the best idea. Although something you have to get up and heat may also be a good idea, since that gives you an excuse to walk away from the thank you cards for a moment.

I felt the same way this weekend! Just finished the rest of my thank you’s from my second shower. Not looking forward to writing them out after the wedding. Try doing a few at a time and take lots of breaks but keep at it so they get done!

@katie1494:  aim to do 8-10 each night.

when it is time for the wedding TYs, your husband should help with writing the thank you notes.
