I’ve been trying to teach my grandma a lot of things about technology.
Now, before anyone tries to vindicate our tech-frenzied generation, it was my grandma who wanted to learn.
She came to visit me last summer after I had my baby. Grandma and I have always been close. In fact, my high school years were spent in the country where I felt was the best place for me. It took time to settle down not being in a busy city. But, I was also suffering from depression and she felt the countryside was my healing pill. Grandma was right and about a year after moving in with her and grandpa I was feeling much better. I managed to go to a top university, got a great job and now I’m married. Grandma has been there championing every step I have taken and I’m always super grateful for that love and affection. My partner also loves my grandma and is always giddy when she is coming because she comes with his favorite tasty treats. During the last visit, grandma noticed we had changed the dial thermostat in our home. Before, we had this dial thermostat that would drive all of us insane. We tried our best to set the temperature settings in the house, but it was never exactly what we wanted. Finally, last spring, we managed to purchase and install a smart thermostat. This was after visiting the blog section of the HVAC company we hire for maintenance and repair. They explained the pros of a smart thermostat and we knew this was the best solution for our home. I did refer grandma to the blog section and she said she found it quite informative.
