Cleaning Up the Third Floor

So gnomi is now back at home, but I'm still in my Mom's house in New York. After all, the real reason for this trip was for me to clean my stuff out of the third floor of my Mom's house.

A little history here, for those who are interested. My Mom and Dad moved into this house in 1967, and Mom has lived in continuously since then. (Dad died in 1990.) It's a big house, and we mostly used the third floor of the house for storage. There's a lot of junk up there, including a lot of books that Dad somehow acquired but never read. (He was something of a pack rat.) But there's also a lot of my stuff up there, mostly books, magazines, and comic books.

In the meantime, I'm using the "off-hours" to bag and board comics. And those six hundred bags and boards I had shipped from New England Comics? A severe underestimate...

One final thing though -- being cooped up in this house will drive me nuts. Anyone local (i.e. in the New York City area) want to hang out some night this week?
