Learn More About What an Indianapolis Senior Move Manager Does
I came across an interesting topic on an Internet forum the other day that provided me a few chuckles. The moderator asked "What are some of the cute things that your grandparents used to do that you now realize make alot of sense"?
You know, things like always having plenty of Kleenex handy, wearing huge sunglasses, labeling everything in the house, etc. Some of the responses are worth a laugh and I wanted to share them with you and perhaps prompt you to share a few of your own in the comments section on my Facebook page here.
"My grandmother collected 'garden cuttings' from everyplace she traveled...all over the world!," said Roberta in Indianapolis.
"My grandmother didn't just have Kleenex in every pocket," noted Jill of Fishers. "If she didn't have any pockets, she'd hide them in her sleeves!"
Barb in Carmel says she came across an interesting trend as she helped pack her mothers' belongings for a move into an assisted care facility in Indianapolis. "In nearly every single pocket and every purse, she had mints and a $1 bill, plus a hanky that had been embroidered by her mother," says Barb fondly.
Linda in Brownsburg wrote "My Mom would never leave the house unless she combed her hair and put on lipstick. Her quote was 'You never know who you are going to meet'. Feeling good about the image we present to outside world is always a good idea."
Larry in Columbus admits that he was always embarassed by his mothers' insistence on saving every plastic freezer bag that came into the house. "I think some of those freezer bags were washed repeatedly and used around the house for 5 or 6 years," he says. "But today I appreciate her frugality and insistence on saving as much money as possible for the family."
