So here's the scoop: My birthday was a few weeks ago and a few family members sent me cards. I've put off doing it for years, but I believe I should start writing thank you notes to all these people. (Note: Just for clarity, I am not trying to make up for the previous years of perceived ingratitude. Just doing "adult" things now). The problem is my handwriting is atrocious. It's seriously appalling, I have trouble reading it sometimes. What's the etiquette on typing out a personal (read: not form) letter to each person and then sticking it in a thank you card that I sign my name on? I want to send the cards but feel childish when sending something that appears to be written by a nine year old. Also, I feel like thank you cards are appreciated more when they're clearly legible and words don't have to be guessed at. Thoughts? EDIT: Improving my penmanship is not a valid option in this scenario.
