My Grandma’s condo was colder than I remember it being, and i loved going to see Grandma around Christmas because of her superb ginger cookies and moderate chocolate, but she made everything with love, and it was fun kneeling around the fire oil furnace listening to her stories, but my Grandma had the most soothing voice, and she told stories and left you with a lesson that lived with you for life.
She was moderate and caring, and of course, pampered us more than the people I was with and I needed. I was now older and in my college years, despite the fact that I still loved seeing my Grandma. She is now older and frail but still as moderate and accommodating as everâ€¦ This one time I visited, when Winter time was beginning to show signs, I felt as though the condo was too cold. Surprising, the oil furnace was on, and her caretaker also had the fireplace burning. I checked the thermostat to find out if it was faulty since I did not understand the chilly weather. It turns out that the thermostat was working okay. I tried a few other usual problemshooting tricks, and none seemed to work; Finally, I called my AC expert friend in Tampa Bay, FL, who proposed me to check the insulation. I told her Grandma’s condo was old, and she suspected that the insulation material might be wearing off. She proposed me to check the attic, and true to her suspicion, the insulation material was almost gone, however with her situation, I bought a few foam insulating materials and had them installed in the attic. The condo in Tampa Bay, FL became warmer within a few hours of the upgrade, and they did not even need the fireplace anymore, then grandma was happier and even got to be her aged cheerful self. It seems as though the chilly was depressing her before.
