A weird weather day

I fell asleep last night to rain dumping down in buckets and pretty much woke up to the same thing again this morning and then the weather did what they always joke about in BC....changed pretty much every five minutes. From pouring rain, to brilliant sun, to overcast and even a 30 second snowfall. Now it's overcast again. I had a quick look at the weather report and it's calling for thunder and lighting tonight and then the sun is supposed to arrive. Apparently a gorgeous weekend coming up with temps in the double digits. I can hope. :)
I had a great catch up chat with my friend Lee this morning and I'm hugely looking forward to our visit tomorrow, it's been way too long! Lee and I originally met when I was working at a day spa and she came in for a pedicure, we've been friends ever since, even had our babies at the same time.
And speaking of babies....apparently mine wants to be a doctor. This is what she put on her door, isn't it adorable? When I asked her if she wanted to be a doctor she said "yes, just like Dr Seuss", ah yes, that makes much more sense. I sure love her. :)

If you are in the market for some new jeans than be sure to check out Warehouse One right now. They are having a buy one, get one half off sale and I really like the styles they have. The service here was spectacular, a great relief after the Sport Chek incident. :S Belts are also buy one, get one half off and shirts are buy two and get 25% off. If I had more time I would have looked a little more but I am always on a time crunch shopping with Marshall. That kid does not like to shop. Thank goodness for iPhones and YouTube or I may never get to go anywhere. I did come home with two pairs of jeans though which is why I went there to begin with.
Once we got home I fed the kiddies some lunch and put Marshall to bed and put in 4kms on the treadmill. I started out doing the fastest power walk I could do on a number 5 incline until the backs of my legs were burning, then I put it back down to flat and started running sprints. I really worked my lungs with todays workout, a good test of trying to control my breathing. By the end of each sprint I needed the one minute power walk to catch my breath. I did a few minutes of easy running at the end and finished feeling like I got a good workout in even though it was only 4km. I rehydrated with a huge glass of water in my Starbucks cup(this cup is very popular with my kids...there is just something about drinking out of a straw I think), and sat down to write this entry.
I can't believe it's already after five, where does the day go?? Time to make turkey spaghetti(ground turkey breast is so cheap at Costco, how did I not know this before??? It's half the price that it is at Thrifty's!)for dinner, and if it stops snow raining(ugh) than I will get to cleaning out that darn van too!
In the meantime I'll leave you with my new favourite running song: Tiƫsto vs. Diplo ft. Busta Rhymes - C'mon (Catch 'Em By Surprise) - YouTube
See you tomorrow!
