Late last night my best friend asked me to please watch her two year old daughter during the day and pick up her six year old son from school and watch them til 5-ish. She is having dental surgery today and didn't think she'd be OK to supervise them on medication. I said yes, but I forgot until I was in bed after midnight that I had a doctor's appointment for Nicholas at 10 for vaccinations and a mammogram appointment at 2:45. Pick up for her little boy is at 3. I eventually got my mammogram rescheduled a bit earlier so I'll be able to get him on time.
I managed to take my son (age 5) and her daughter (almost 3 yrs old) for a walk. I did my full walk. It took longer than usual because the little one can't go as fast as I do and doesn't catch up as fast. I also gave them playtime at the cul de sac. But.. I did manage to exercise and get my mile walk in with the dog. Yesterday I did not do any exercise. The weather was too yucky for walking in my opinion and then I fell asleep right after dinner in the evening.
I mean to make up for it today and do a dance party of at least 30 minutes with a goal of 1 hr today or tonight. I'm pretty tired right now, but this is my tired time of the day so it might get better. Time to head out for my mammogram.. my very first one. Scared!!! But I took some ibuprofen in case it hurts. I promise not to pull a hissy fit like my son did when it was time for his shot. I'll keep it inside and come tell you guys how much it hurt or didn't.
Update - Back now. Yeah, it hurt. But it wasn't intolerable and it didn't take long for each squish (two per boobie). I am glad I took ibuprofen first. The (thankfully female) nurse/radiology tech. was very nice with a very kind bedside manner, which helped a lot. Glad it's done.
