You know you are a “real family” when you no longer buy individual personal things for your SO. Instead his Christmas list will have tools like an annular cutter or a metal hole saw. And you go: “Really? Do you need a life insurance quote to go with that?”
I get it. If I get new pots, is that for me or for all of us? Since I own the only pair of hands that touch the pots, and it would somehow make my job easier, so wouldn’t it be just for me?
I am A- OKAY with sacrificing for my family, and many of us are too. An occasional moan and vent are understandable right? I used to have a lot more tolerance for many things. Now, I just hide behind my computer instead of being grumpy with the less than perfect scenarios.
Speaking of computers, pictured here is a gorgeous computer. I am not selling it, nor am I doing an advertisement or review of any kind. I wanted to show you that it is pink. Yippee! I wanted a computer that reflects the femininity in me and I am glad the pink comes across with taste and not cheap looking. The metallic finish still gives it the tech look, but it still cries “oh so very feminine”.
At some point, SO took over in purchasing a few of my personal dependencies. SO did all the research and even the search for deals and /or promotions. Like my sister Koko's famous line: “his mama taught him well.”
I have to tell you, it feels really weird to take a back seat on something I would normally do for myself. Being independent for so long, I didn’t know if I should allow this to happen, or that this is what a “real family” is supposed to be like.
