I feel like I am home. The airport, streets and sights are all familiar to me. It is almost too easy here. We had an uneventful flight (thank goodness) and then went straight to the outlet mall. My new dream job does not allow me to wear jeans and so I needed to get some new pants. I got three pairs so I am happy with that start. A. had never been to the outlets before, had a good time as well as we were able to be outside enjoying the nice weather while shopping at the same time.
We checked into the hotel and it is nice. Compared to the Stay.bridge and Home.wood, the Inv.erness is a luxury hotel. It is the perfect place to come for a ODWU or a check me over trip. I would not recommend it for a long stay. As nice as it is, the room and being cooped up for a few days, would become crowded very fast. The do have a spa though. We when got to the hotel, A. was exhausted so as he slept, I took the opportunity to treat myself to a massage. The change room is equipped with a steam, showers, etc. and there is an exclusive to spa guests only outdoor hot tub. It was so nice, especially since I was the only person there. Heavenly. The massage was awesome as well, it was expensive but worth it. (Registered massage therapists preform the massage so I am able to claim it on my insurance-yay.)
Then it was the moment I was most anticipating. My face-to-face with my friend Cassie. A. and I picked her up and we went to dinner at the Cheese.cake Fac.tory. We had such a good time just relaxing, chatting and eating super delicious cheesecake. I felt like we were old friends catching up. It felt so natural to just be myself because I had no secrets from her. She, like all of you, know my inner thoughts so it was a liberating experience as no one in my social circle knows about my struggles.
Now, I am exhausted and completely freaked for tomorrow's appointments. I really hope my uterus is all clear and that I am able to finalize a plan to move forward. I am ready.
