Primary Care

This past weekend Hillary Clinton was in NH. Specifically Manchester, Keene, Nashua and Concord. Even though I never saw her, I was also in all four of those places. I had to work on Sat because I had a conference in Keene. Which I actually didn't mind because it was a great experience. Jeff dropped Keegan at Nana's for some sledding and playing on the frozen lake and met up with me after my meeting. We also met up with Erika, Jay and Sammy for some light shopping. I scored a gorgeous pair of knee high brown suede boots. Now of course I have to buy outfits to go with them. I also got the purple, green, and gold sugar crystals and plastic baby I need to make my king cake for Mardi Gras next week. Then Jeff and I had a great Indian meal in Manchester. I can't remember the last time I had good Indian. And there were leftovers for lunch the next day. Sunday morning we looked at three house and drove by two more. We are trying not to get too excited about the first one because it is expensive and we haven't sold my house yet. But we're going to look at more next weekend. Jeff did work from home and picked up Isabelle while I went down to Nashua to retrieve Keegan who was visiting my grandparents new swanky apartment. I should be so lucky to end up in place like that when I need that additional support. And my grandma loved introducing us as four generations. The up side of all that driving around is that I got to catch up on some phone calls when I am usually too busy to sit still.
