Journaling


Ok, so I have 4 journals started, that I'm suppose to be working on, but never seem to find the time to do it. One for each of the boys, plus mine. I'm suppose to write on Sunday, but here it is 10:31 and I'm still blogging. So, I'm using a wonderful idea that I got from my friend Lindsey-I hope you have your baby soon-Rose! I have copy and pasted all of our posts into a Word Document and I'm going to print them and put them in a nice 3 ring notebook. Since I have an obsession with everyone having their own-memories, books, whatever-I'm going to print duplicate copies of the posts that are interesting to more than one of us. So, I'll have my book, Draven his, Brody his, etc. An added bonus to this idea is that I can print the pictures that we've included on the post and have it right there with the "journal" entry! I'm even including the random posts-80's music and Helping Hamburger, etc. because I decided that when I read back over my life I want to remember the place I was in, and that includes pinching pennies at the grocery store and setting up our new blog. Just an idea for you! And yes, I'm printing this one too!

Great idea...am I just hopeful or crazy thinking that posting it on the internet is enough?...I never print..I just figure the internet will be there forever.

I do keep a journal for my more spiritual experiences, yet again, it is never printed..just stuck on my computer....I guess I better start printing or backing up. I would hate to lose all that work.

What a great idea! I never really thought to print my blog entries out. I guess I also thought that the internet would be around forever!
