The Move is Almost Here

It has been over a week since my last post, I think this is my longest stretch since I started this blog over a year ago.  Life is hectic - good but hectic.  I feel blessed to have a solid job and to have gotten a new position where my relocation is being paid for by the company.  It sucks to uproot the family but the positives far outweigh the negatives.

One of the biggest negatives is my lack of time and opportunity to focus on my hobby.  I have made a couple trades of the PWE variety lately but wasn't able to toss in as many extras as usual as many of my cards are packed up. I have made some nice additions to my collection but haven't had the chance to scan and share since I am away from home all week and playing family catch up on the weekend.

However there is finally a light at the tunnel!  The movers come on Monday and will be loaded and out of here on Wednesday.  We will take possession of our new home either on 7/1 or 7/2 which means we will have a few days of homelessness either staying with some family members or at a hotel - my boys are super excited about this part of our adventure.

Some of the best news is the house we are moving into will have a room dedicated to me!  My own man cave (although with it being the only room on the second story it is more of a tree house than a man cave).  Once I get everything moved in and set up I should have a great area to get even more organized and have even more hobby fun.  I am hoping the new space will get my creative juices flowing and result in some posts that go beyond "look what I bought" or "look what I traded for".

If you are one of those amazing bloggers that send random gifts of kindness, you may want to hold off for a little while.  I do have a new address but I am hesitant to give it out until we get there.  Plus I have very little at my ready to trade back.

So there you have my update, life is hectic but good, feeling blessed but stressed and happy I am nearing the end of this journey.

I have to post at least one card so how about a nice HOF auto I pulled a ways back from 2012 Panini Cooperstown, the mustache on the card just has to make you smile and I feel like smiling!


  1. You're going to love your man tree house. I think the best part is that you can just close the door and don't have to worry about anything within. Pets can't get in... if the wife can't see it, she doesn't make me straighten up... everything is right where I left off... totally my safe haven for my collection.

    Good luck with the move!

  2. Your own personal tree house/man cave? That sounds awesome. Hope the move goes smoothly.
