I learned a life lesson today. When going to a new forest preserve and deciding to walk a trail, don't just walk a trail. It was a beautiful morning and I thought hey, why not go for a walk. I hopped on a trail and took off. I figured that it would loop around and the sign said 2 mi, so I thought hey, that sounds like a nice little walk. Well, loop around it didn't, at least not exactly. As I was walking through the prairie, I lost sound of the construction on the road and sight of people. I felt like I was walking back around, but my car never appeared. After walking about 4-5 miles, I came across a visitors center. Like a real dummy, I rang the bell and asked for help. I was getting desperate and almost asked for a ride back to my car. I had a doctor's appointment and didn't know if I had enough time to walk back. After looking at the map I realized I had at least another two miles to go. So I trekked back and when I saw my car again, it was a magical moment. I sat down in my car and dumped the rocks out of my shoe. I made it! It was definitely a good walk and I needed it, just wasn't planning on it today.
I made it to my appointment on time and I was happy to see that the doctor thinks I should have a sleep study done. He also ran some blood tests. I may be a little bit of a hypochondriac, but it would be so reassuring to know that nothing is wrong. I am so fatigued and I'd like to know if it is something I can do something about. I guess we will see. Plus, it is pretty cool to have a sleep study done.
All in all, it was a good day and I am finishing my evening with some indie movies featuring Ryan Gosling.
