Life can throw you for a loop every now and then. Last month when I was already in what I'm currently referring to as the "tailspin", I found out I'm pre-diabetic. While it's not the same as hearing you have diabetes or something worse, it still hit me hard. The good news is I can head it off and actually come out of this ok as long as I get more active and lose some of this weight I've been carrying around for far too long.
One of the guys that reached out to me during my absence was Robert from $30 a week habit. He posted just to let me know he was pulling for me without even knowing what was going on and I have to say it meant a lot.
During the downtime, Robert sent over some cards and the black and blue theme continued. The package was loaded with goodness, but two cards stood out over all the rest.
I love getting Senators cards and I'll have to check, but this may be my first team card and it's great. It's from 1971 obviously and I think I may have to use it for my header for a few days.
The blue comes in the form of this 2012 Topps blue parallel of Yu Darvish. We'll have to wait a while, but I can't wait to see how he does in his 2nd season.
Robert, thanks for the cards and the shout out!
