I must be married to her sister. DW does the same thing, stresses over "I have to write all the cards and get them in the mail." Now, I have offered to help, but my handwriting is such that I've been accused of being a physician so such offers are politely declined.
So my assistance is limited to a once-over to check for any errors, printing the labels, affixing the stamps, and using a sponge to seal the envelopes.
