Life is nuts

I feel like I start all of my posts the same these days: ahhh life is crazy, I don't have a ton of time to blog or do card-related things blah blah blah. And you know what, it's true.

As previously mentioned, we are moving next week to a house in the NJ suburbs. As many of you may recall when we first traded or exchanged packages, I was living on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Then we had our first kid, and out to Hoboken, NJ (just across the Hudson) we went. It was still city life, just a little more space and more kid-friendly. Now, we've outgrown that space, and are full-on headed to the 'burbs. It's still a short commute to NYC for work, but now we have a house, a yard, and more space. Please feel free to ask for my new address.

Speaking of my commute into NYC, I just started a new job last week. Timing is insane. So I'm getting up to speed with the new role with a new company (first time in 9 years!), plus I feel extremely disheveled, to put it lightly.

I've still been getting cards in, as well as trying to keep up with blogs, but I won't lie, I feel a bit LOST (see what I did there?!). I look forward to some form of normalcy in the next few weeks/months.

Ok, I've gone too long without showing a card. Here's a neat new card that came in - a Ty Hensley 1/1. It looks like some sort of Leaf Draft test or proof. It's hand-numbered 1/1 (upper left) and comes in a fancy sealed case. I don't know much about it, so it was a fairly uninformed purchase. Other cards like this of other players exist, so I'm pretty sure someone isn't tricking me with it. Maybe they are.
Thanks for listening. I know everyone has busy lives and I'm not special, but just wanted to fill you in a little on where I am right now.


  1. It seems that life changing events get sequenced together like that. Hope the transition is smooth into the new house.

  2. Good luck with the move and welcome to suburbia!

  3. Good luck getting used to the suburb life. That 1/1 ought to help you pass the time.

  4. Congratulations on the move! None of my friends outside of the blogging community understand the amount of time and effort it takes to maintain a blog and collection, while continuing with everyday life. I'm totally with ya... life right now is very crazy.

    Thankfully... I only have three days left of summer school. After that... I finally get my summer break. Guess what I'll be doing? Finally building care packages for people. So if you want some Yankees... email me your new mailing address. :)

  5. Goodluck with the house and the new job. Email me your new address
