Crossing it off of my list

I try to prioritize. And, when you have homework and work-work, writing thank you cards sort of falls by the wayside.

But I am so. not. okay with skipping the process altogether. Sure, I collected the first of my birthday presents nearly a month ago, but I am still very thankful for them.

Thus, the notes.

When we were kids - my mom used to love to nag Meg and I about writing thank you notes. She'd harass us. And remind us. And threaten to send back the gifts. Until we finally sat down and wrote the thank you notes (probably three days after we received the gift).

I can still hear her.

For the last month, I've had these hanging over me.

Knew I needed to write them. Knew I had things that were, technically, more important.

I don't think I have ever been happier to finish up a batch of thank you cards. And Mom wasn't even nagging me.

Technically.

(I totally heard her in the back of my head. Every day. For an entire month. Sorry, Momma, but it was time to shut you up.)
