I am suppose to be at work right now, but my car has a flat tire. It loses its air every few days and when I was leaving work yesterday, the tire was flat. I just filled it up with my little mini compressor that plugs into my cigarette lighter and drove home. But when I went out to get in my car this morning, the tire was flat again. So, it looks like I am buying a new tire this morning. Thats all well and good, because we got bonus checks yesterday. Tom and I went out last night with the intention of buying a dishwasher to replace our old one, but we ended up buying hardwood flooring for the kitchen instead. Its not real hardwood, but the laminate stuff. It looks like real wood, but its easy to put down and you can use it in places like the kitchen without having to worry too much about ruining the floors. I guess I will spend the day removing the tile from the kitchen floor (fun, fun). My son can help me put the new floor down tomorrow. I'm hoping it will  be a fairly easy project. We are planning on going back to buy more for the dining room too. Tom will stop at Lowes today and pick up the dishwasher too. I love having unexpected money.

   On another note, my brother is going back to the oncologist for more testing. Back in the summer when he was going thru is cancer incident, they had found a spot on his liver. They pretty much decided that it was nothing more than a spot. After he has his surgery, tests showed he had no more cancer cells in his body. I'm not sure what his recent tests shows that has them worried again, but he will be going back for another round of testing. He and his wife have plans to go on a cruise, which they are leaving on today. He was going to cancel his trip, but the doctor told him to go and have a good time, they will worry about it when he gets back. Hopefully, he will pull off another miracle and nothing will come of it.


   I think I will go and relax for a bit. Its 5:45 am and no one will be awake for another hour or so. My oldest just left for work and Tom and the rest of the kids will be up to start their days. When they all leave, I can start ripping out tiles. I could be mean and get the hammer so i can start now, but I think I will just go watch some early moring TV.
