By the time we got home I was pretty out of it and hit the bed. The pain was totally gone in about a half an hour, but was replaced with six hours of constant itching. On the up side, I was too drugged to really care that I itched all over. In the middle of the night the pain returned full force. So much for that method of treatment.
I woke the next day to find myself taking three naps. Needless to say, I was zapped. I ran out for a short trip to the pharmacy to get some prednisone and to get my hair done. I've been working odd hours and had canceled this appointment once and really wanted to get it over with. Thank the good Lord the girl that did my hair did an amazing job of giving me a head and neck massage as well. Once I was finished it was right back home to bed.
By Friday I was looking forward to the weekend and heading to the suburbs of Chicago to move our kids. They were heading north of the city to relocate for Alfred's job and schooling. We decided to sleep at home that night and head out by 6AM for our three hour drive. Thankfully we are an hour ahead of Chicago.
The kids had worked like crazy getting everything packed up. By the time we arrived the guys were ready to head out with the U-haul while Alicia and I finished up at the old apartment.
Despite the guys forgetting the keys to the new place it all came together in time. After lots of hard work we had thing pretty much moved into their condo and it was starting to take shape.

We went out to dinner that night for some Mediterranean food. It's always something fun and different when we visit our kids. There are options for eating that we just don't have in our area.
Monday, Labor Day, the kids surprised Dave with tickets to a Cubs baseball game. His birthday is coming up this week and He was really excited! We rode the train into the ballpark, one of my favorite things to do!!!

We hopped off the train and headed right across the road to the ball field.

It was a really fun day and a good way to relax and have some fun after all the work of the move. Woohoo, the Cubbies won! We took the train back to our cars and the kids headed north while we hit the road south and back around the lake to Michigan.
