Moving the Storage Unit

We got the news today that we are going to have to move everything out of the storage unit that belonged to my mom. That means having to sell a bunch of the stuff because no one has enough room to keep it. I called the woman that did the appraisals on the unit after Mom died and she said she might be able to get some things into a sale she is having after Labor Day. I want to go through the rest of the boxes and put more stuff up for sale. Most of the crystal will be sold as will most of the porcelain and other knicknacks. Heather will be taking some of the crystal, as will I, and I will take most of the furniture except the dining room set. I am hoping to get this done within the next two months or less.
  My MIL and FIL and Ian will be moving out this week and into their new house down the block. They are taking two cats and Bear the puppy. Heather is supposed to come get her cats Riven and Smoke on Friday, so then we will be down to just 3 cats and 2 dogs. I think that is the least amount of animals we have had in years.

Way too Hot

I am really ready for summer to be over. It is HOT and I am miserable. I can't go outside and enjoy myself without worrying about heatstroke and getting burnt. 
  My new diet has caused me to gain weight, so I am going back to the old one. I have to go back to the gym. I haven't been in over a month with everything going on around here and being sick and all, and it shows. So tomorrow I am getting up and going. 
  At the end of the summer I am going to have to tear down my garden and put what I can into pots. Marshall is re-doing the entire area for me and he is also putting in a new gate. He works so  hard to make me happy. I have an awesome hubby :)
