We spent yesterday evening with Scott’s family to celebrate his birthday and our nephew’s birthday. I rather wish I hadn’t gone because I wasn’t feeling great and because, as it turned out, there wasn’t much at all I could eat. I was avoiding vegetables of all types, so the cabbage and apple salad wasn’t a good idea nor was the lettuce salad. The potato salad had chunks of egg in it, so I didn’t dare touch it (eggs are a migraine trigger). There were breadsticks. I could have those. My SIL made ribs for most people and some chicken skewers for those of us who can’t eat barbecue sauce. Sadly, she put a pre-packaged 'Italian' herb blend on the chicken, one of those that doesn’t actually say what’s in it. I can’t have oregano or basil without getting sick, so… I ate about three bites of the chicken before I realized it was a problem, and that was enough to be a problem later that evening.

I had been iffy on going at all, but our nephew is turning 18, so this may be the last gathering of this sort for a while, depending on where he goes to college. I’ve been having gas and intestinal difficulties for about three days now. It’s been making it hard to sleep.

We had some errands downtown yesterday and had an awful time finding parking. All the structures were near capacity which isn’t normal for a Sunday afternoon. We checked online later to see if there was some big event, but apparently it was just that the weather was beautiful.

The drawing for the lottery to get into Community High is Wednesday. I very much want Cordelia to get in, but I’m too tired to get wound up about it right now.

I need to do a lot of laundry today, and I should get going on it. I’m just having problems getting myself to move. I only got about six hours of sleep last night, and it wasn’t hugely restful sleep. I think I’ll see about getting the first load in and then lying down for a while.
