    carefully and thoroughly and meticulously

    Howdy,

    Can I say something like:

    Wow! Everything seems to be so carefully and thoroughly and meticulously checked. prepared and planned that it makes me feel great!

    Or is it too much to use these theree adj. in bold? After all they mean more or less the same... don't they?

    Yes, it's too much, better would be;

    There's a period right behind the "checked." Should it be a comma?

    Yes it should. Thanks, I didn't notice that.
