We finally arrived at the hotel and I was pleasantly surprised- it was so welcoming. We went right away to one of the hotel restaurants (The Captain's Grille) and ate lunch. Things were starting to feel better. After lunch we hit the pool for just a little bit- although it was lightly raining it was still fun. After swimming we met up with Nick's co-workers and went to Downtown Disney. We ate dinner at Portobello's, sitting on the water, and I had the best lasagna of my life. We then went to BabyCakes NYC to get some gluten free/vegan cupcakes.
I felt myself finally starting to relax. I really enjoyed being able to spend some quality time with Nick. I really enjoyed putting on a dress and heading out for dinner. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of Downtown Disney- the great food, the street performers, the energy of the area. It was so different from the life I typically lead. I had to come to the realization that I had to let go of my guilt. If I didn't let go and enjoy myself, then really what would have been the point of the trip? Being grumpy wouldn't have got me home to Nora any sooner.
