Go To Techy Girl

December 13th, 2012

When Marcel and I arrived for our 9 week vacation- I was surprised to see that mom and diddy had bought a new printer sometime since we were here last. I remember talking to them about several different models that would work for their needs, but I didn’t realize that they’d actually bought one. They had- and thankfully even took my advice.

Now that we’re here- they have enlisted my tech help to not only help them find good prices on LaserJet toner but also in teaching them how to install it once they order some and replace their ‘almost’ empty cartridges. I love that they ask me to help them, after all they’ve done so much for me over the course of a lifetime that it’s the very least I could do.

I’ll admit I have to remind myself to slow down and explain things to them instead of breezing through the set-up and process, because I’m so used to ‘doing’ that I forget that they are trying to learn and I’m sometimes too fast on the draw for people to ‘get’ what I’m doing. As long as I remember that- and don’t get carried away- plus write it down for future reference, it makes things easy for them.

So grateful for my parents.. and for all the wonderful people in my life.
