I thought the breakdown would be about half thank you notes and half other items but it hasn't played out that way thus far. In fact I only wrote 7 thank you notes this month. (Yes, my to-do list is waiting for me to catch up!)
In case you're interested, I also sent
- 10 happy new year cards
- 6 condolence notes
- and the rest were a mix of just because, birthday, new home, engagement, retirement (etc.) cards
I feel a little like I'm exercising muscles I haven't used in awhile - sometimes the writing is easy and other times it is more a struggle and I have to start over fresh. But it feels good to be back in the game, and I'm looking forward to continuing to correspond!
