Well early in the morning around 12:58am there was a 4.6 Earthquake in Chatsworth, it's about 20 miles NW of where I live. I had gone to bed around midnight and was just about to fall asleep when the bed shook hard, there was just one big jolt. It's wasn't very long but did keep me up for another hour wondering if this was the first of many... luckly it was the only big one.

Today Harry and I had to get up at 4:30am. Some of you may know that my step dad, Chuck has Bladder Cancer. He has been fighting it for the past year. Today is his last chance and they are going to remove his bladder and prostate and then rebuilt his new bladder. They were taking him in at 6am and mom wanted us to be there to wish him luck. Also my aunt came the day before and stayed with us so she didn't have to drive much. So we got there at 5:30am and visited with Chuck until 7am when they took him into surgery. We waited in the waiting room for over eight hours as they preformed the surgery. Around 3:30pm they came out and said everything went as expected. They still have to check his lymph nodes for cancer but everything looked good. He was heading to ICU and we wouldn't be able to see him the rest of the night so Harry and I decided to head home. It was a long day and both of us were very tired. I am just glad that Chuck looks to be okay and will be home in two weeks.

My aunt Joyce came to stay with us for the night so Harry and I pulled out an air mattress that I borrowed from my brother. It was a queen size and at first I thought it was pretty good. We went to bed early because we had to get up at 4:30am. A few hours into our sleep Harry got up to go to the bathroom and the next thing I knew I had sunk down into the bed. The air was slowly leaking and what was once a nice firm airbed turned into a bed monster and had sucked my down to the floor. After that I couldn't get back in and instead slept on the couch. Harry on the other hand jumped back in and sat in the middle of the bed and sunk down and went to sleep. I normally don't mind the air mattress but this one was not fun.

Today we took my Dad to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. This was Harry and I fourth time seeing the movie. It's been a few weeks since we saw it and again it was awesome. I can't wait to buy this on DVD. I don't think Harry will see it again in the theater but I hope to see it a few more times before it leaves.
