Breaking Away From Yard Work

52 bags of mulch (2 cu ft each), 70 pieces of brick edging and two days later, my yard looks so much better than it did Friday night.  I have company coming over next weekend for a little get together to finally celebrate my passing of the ASBOG Exam (this past November) and moving into the house (Last April).  In order to get ready for everything, I wanted to make sure our yard looked nice.  Now it does.  When I finished this evening, I decided to hop in the car and head to the Greenville card shop and get some packs.  My wife and son got a few as well.  I got: a pack of 2012 Donruss Elite Extra Edition, 2 packs of 2011 Bowman Chrome, a pack of 2011 Topps Finest, 2012 Playoff Contenders and 2011 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects.
 AWESOME.  Another Dylan Bundy.  I now have his base card and blue refractor auto.  I think he is the real deal.  He has done a good job in spring training so far.  Hopefully, he can parlay that into a successful minor league season for this year in hopes of cracking the majors next year.
I also got this C.J. Cron on card auto out of Playoff Contenders.  I like Playoff/Donruss' offerings.  I think they would be a formidable alternative to Topps (as long as Topps continues in baseball as well).

So, now that I have this post up, I can go collapse into a char and take the rest of the night off.  Done!

Well deserved break - tune in and zone out to the lazy sounds of spring ball (Cubs/Dodgers on MLBnetwork)!

Good job on the yard!
