Between the phone and the internet I am able to complete many house hold tasks right in my home! I can use internet banking to balance my account. I can pay bills on-line or by using the phone. I can order many items on-line. Just the other day we ordered our teenager a basketball hoop. It only took a few minutes. I Google questions about everything. A few weeks ago I had a question about postage. Google saved me time by not having to wait in line at the post office. Since I can not take Tristan to the store with me, that means I have to really plan my shopping trips. I can fit an “errand” in any time of my day. I can look at the local libraries card catalog and reserve books or renew them from my home. I can have “conversations” via text messages. If I am on the phone talking then Tristan sees this as opportunity to get into something. It is amazing how much the technology helps me with daily living. Next week I will address how technology has enriched Tristan’s life. These are just a few examples. How has technology helped you in completing household tasks?
