Yesterday, my spring break began. Spring Break for me is going to consist of a college road trip, a few days off, and a lot of down time.But today, I thought I'd celebrate Spring Break's arrival by jaunting out to the local card show and feasting upon the 10 cent bins, mostly containing 2012 and 2013 stuff. Nevertheless, I indulged.
