Preparing for The Big J-Land Shut down

Preparing for the big shutdown
Instead of saving my journals to the computer, I thought I would print them. I thought after they were printed out I would take them to Staples and have them spiral bound. It's not expensive to have that done.
Well, my first journal, Yada Yada Yada, has used up 2/3 of a package of printer paper and I'm only 3/4 through it. The good news is: It only took an hour and fifteen minutes.

I didn't realize I had written so much. As I flipped through the pages it brought back so many fun memories - especially about my grandchildren. I'm going to be glad I printed it. It's a record of my family for the past 3 years.

I'm so grateful that I kept up on my journaling. My memory isn't as good as it once was and I forget when certain things happened. Now I have a book I can refer to. If AOL hadn't decided to end J-Land, I never would have printed it out so I'm grateful tonight.

Hugs!

Following you over! Seems many are heading to this neighborhood.

I like the idea of making the book - it will be something your children will want to read at some point in their lives.

I'll have to get a new black cartridge to print mine as I refilled it myself and it screwed my printer up or fill up the daughter's ink and use her's. I'd be very very sad if I lost all of those years and memories too! xox rose
