But it's not because I have nothing to write about.
Okay, it's because I have nothing to write about. But now that I'm here, I guess it's time to ramble. Forgive me for jumping from topic to topic. What I am about to type is whatever is coming to mind. It'll get confusing, I'm sure. Just bear with me.
For those who wondered why the Random Cards of the Day stopped suddenly in June, it was because after months of being unemployed, I was able to get a temp job. It was fun for a while. I was actually earning a paycheck and able to pay bills while the kids were out of school. And because the job ran from 8 am to 5 pm, other than those times during my lunch hour that I was able to blog, I had no time to prepare the Card of the Day posts. And then days turned into weeks. And weeks turned into months. And soon, I was way behind.
The job ended in August, and even though that meant I could start up again, I am a completist and would have preferred to begin where I left off. I may get to that point eventually. But I don't know how much time I have for that.
I start a new job in September, day after Labor Day to be exact. I hope that the run with this company lasts longer than two months. It just means I have to focus a bit more so I can do the job and hopefully get a full-time position here (nothing is guaranteed though).
It's been almost a year since my job at DPI ended. I hope that somebody is planning a reunion so we can all get together and see how everyone is doing.
So far in 2013, I have been fortunate to be able to complete the following master sets:
- 2013 Topps Series 1
- 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen
- 2013 Topps Retail Team Sets...all 32 sets
- 2013 Topps Pro Debut
- 2013 Topps Series 2
- 2013 Topps Archives
Even at the lowest point in the Hobby's history (mid 90's), I continued to collect. I know all things will come to an end. There will be a time that I stop collecting. I don't know when that time will be.
