You may or may not have noticed my lack of posting this year. A few weeks ago, I was lamenting about my spending on cards. I have since then bought some 2012 Topps baseball cards. After getting tons of doubles, triples, and a few quadruples, I gave up buying more. I enjoyed the initial feeling of ripping open the packs, but the lonely stack of cards was just a big fat nothing to me after that. I also experienced the frustration of misplacing valuable cards. I have sifted through thousands of cards, and still can't find the Magic relics. I am not "feeling it" with collecting right now. It seems gluttonous to me. If someone took a look in my card cave, they would probably say I am ; a hoarder, unorganized, messy, nerdy, wasting money, and clinging to old crap like it will be worth millions someday. I couldn't argue. The thought that keeps rattling around in my dome was inspired by a blurb here.
I need a car, we need siding and windows on the house, there are other things that need my attention and my cabbage right now.
I am currently unloading a bunch of stuff I love. The Magic's will soon be listed too. If there's something you've seen here on my blog that you want, let me know.
I've given this much thought and prayer. It feels a bit like a defeat, but it's the right thing for me to do at this time.
