An Overdue Thank You

Recommended Posts

So the week before my FI proposed to me, I went on a trip with him to Arizona. It was a work trip for him, but he had a lot of downtime. His boss paid for me to go with him. The flight was paid for, the room, any meals or activities I did on the resort including a couples massage, and also I got to go with my FI and 2 of his coworkers on a team building activity - a hot air balloon ride.


His boss does things like this to show his employees how thankful he. Hes done similar things for other employees but nothing as big as this. That we know of. But my FI is the highest level manager, his right hand man.


So shortly after we got home from the trip, my dad passed away. And things have just been off for me since. Ive gone through these depression spurts where I literally dont do anything. It took me 4 months to get my thank you cards out to people who donated on a charity walk for me.


Well I never sent a thank you of any sort. I should have sent a card at least, but would of preferred to send a gift basket or something. Its now 9 months later and I feel like an ass about it. I have thanked him twice in person though. Once before the trip at one of their work get togethers, and than again at their Christmas party.


I know I shouldnt be using my dads passing an excuse, but it is what it is. Im a natural procrastinator, so throwing my emotions off whack certainly wasnt any benefit to me.


Should I send something now? Even though its way overdue. Im pretty embarassed about the whole thing!

I think its never too late to say thank you! And, you have nothing to be embarrassed about. Life happens and you've had such a huge loss. He will probably really appreciate the fact that you are still thankful for the trip so long after...

i agree with kelly. i think its never too late to say thank you and also i dont think your heart will feel settled until you do what feel is the right thing, so i say go for it!


and i like the gift basket idea, but it doesnt have to be over the top. afterall, you are thanking him for a thank you treat in the first place. :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
