I remember the times when I used to be able to visit with my grandparents. It was always so much fun going to see them. I loved playing cards with them and even working on crossword puzzles. I appreciated my grandfather also because he always had the best temperature control settings. On the really hot days, it was always nice and cool inside his household. I don’t know what happened with my parents because they always complain about the A/C being too high and the utility bills being overly expensive. My grandfather said that it was because they didn’t invest in a home with excellent insulation. Because the insulation was great at my grandparents’ household, they were able to enjoy the best temperature control settings without breaking the bank when it came to paying the utility bills. They also knew about a lot of great energy saving tips that I even passed along to my parents. With my parents though, the energy saving tips seemed to go in one ear and out the other. They had to remind me that they were the parents and they would determine what was best for the household. Seeing the way they act with things sometimes, I wonder how difficult it was for my grandparents to deal with my father, he’s always so hard headed it seems. I could never say that to him, he would surely punish me severely, but it’s the truth. When I get a place of my own one day, I will focus on insulation and keeping the house tight so I can enjoy all the A/C I need without paying for expensive energy bills.
