I have been feeling a little guilty lately about my lack of posting. Life has been busy, a good kind of busy but busy. I have recently taken a trip to Washington DC for work, went on a Cub Scout camping trip with my oldest son, planned/celebrated my wife's milestone birthday and had a couple date nights with my wife. Additionally my wife has just gotten a new teaching job that starts in August (she took the last year off after our move) and we have shifted to a new financial planner - these two things have resulted in quite a few late night chats planning for the short term and long term future. And perhaps the best time sucker/distraction has been my little girl. She has just turned 19 months old and is a ton of fun. She is really enjoying swimming with us in the pool, having us read books to and play toys with her, and just socializing with us.
Fortunately I have still been dedicating time and my monthly budget to collecting. I have made trips to the LCSs 2-3 times per month, buying stuff on eBay and Sportlots and even finished off a few trades. I need to do some gathering and sending out for some cards I have recently received from generous bloggers but I am proud I finally filled up a large flat rate priority mail box to send to the son of a friend in Nor Cal with a ton of Giants. Us Giants fans need to have something to lift our spirits.
This weekend I was catching up on reading some blogs and a couple of things caught my attention. First it seems like quite a few bloggers are in the same boat as me with regards to struggling to find time to blog. I guess misery does love company as that made me feel a little better. Next I noticed that none other than blogger extraordinaire Greg of Night Owl Cards has a gap of a few days posting, that made me feel a little better. Seeing the new Night Owl post coupled with a couple other trade posts made me decide that tonight was the night to share some recent cards Night Owl sent my way.
No promised on the frequency of future posts but I will do my best. Keep the trade offers coming, as far as I know there aren't too many collectors in the blogosphere who want Giants so send them my way!
