I apologize for the unscheduled hiatus in posting, even the most commited archivists need a minute to re-group, re-up and re-stock the coffers. Visiting my mom's house in NY has been very bittersweet. Even though I have cleared so many of her belongings over the past year and a half, there are still so many special things of hers here. I saved all of the pieces I was not ready to part with at the time. I am actually so glad I did that, because as much as it can be overwhelming to deal with it all, I don't think I could have handled walking into her house with nothing of hers left in it.
So thank you for the patience, I promise it will be worth the wait, and that I will keep my 365 day promise.
