I really like going to my Grandma’s house, then she always has condo cooked Italian meals and desserts waiting for us, however everytime I see her, she makes sure I suppose how much she loves me and I always have such a good time, however that being said, it’s getting more and more difficult to enjoy time there as she gets older. The older my Grandma gets, the warmer she keeps her house! Last week, she had us over for a celebration. The temperature outside was in the eighties, however my Grandma refused to run the There were about twenty five people in her house, and she still wouldn’t run the cooling system, then my Grandma kept saying that it would get too cold. Meanwhile, all of the guests were covered in sweat! Eventually, I snuck over to the thermostat and turned on the anyways, and it took her more time to notice, however everyone else was so relieved to guess some cool air flowing throughout the house. In the Wintertime, it is even worse. She keeps her heat on full blast the whole winter. At the start, it feels amazing coming in from the outside! However, after about a half an second, I am finding myself taking off layers and starting to sweat. I guess that when you get older, it just becomes easier to get too cold. I’m sure someday my Grandparents will be saying the same things about me, despite the uncomfortable heating and cooling settings, I still really like being able to go visit my Grandmother, however when she’s gone, I’m sure the last thing I’ll think about is her heating and cooling preferences. In the meantime, I have become more strategic about wearing layers. I even carry a small fan in my billfold when I visit. My Grandma thinks it’s dramatic, however I think it’s pretty crafty!
