I worked really hard to get all of my thank yous out within a week-10 days of receiving presents before my wedding.
Our wedding was OOT, and we planned on going directly to our honeymoon. Unfortunately, we lost my Dad two days after the wedding in an accident. A number of friends/family had asked at the wedding if it was OK to send presents to the house- I said yes as a neighbor was picking up the packages whenever he saw them. So a number of presents showed up, but it was a month before I came home from my parents' house. (Extended family/friends weren't told til about 10 days later about my Dad for a number of reasons- so they kept sending!)
To be honest, I didn't work on thank yous right away when I got home. Bad, yes, I'm fully aware. But anything wedding related was awful to think about. (My first dog also had to be put down the same week we lost my Dad. I actually quit my job a week after going back as I was not able to function as a real human) I didn't open any of the gifts, hubby put them in the guest room.
I did get to them a number of weeks later.
Now, 3+ months after I sent them, they've been returned! All of them!! (All of the ones I sent after the wedding- about 15)
Turns out, our postman was hoarding mail (he's been arrested)
Do I rewrite the thank yous and resend? Or just put them in new envelopes?
I hated that the thank yous went out late to begin with, but now I just feel awful!
What should I do?
