I’m usually the one who does the stress shopping around here. And when I talk about stress shopping I’m talking about me getting antsy about something, all freaked out because I have so much to do, then doing none of it, instead taking to the couch surrounded by all the books I have to read and making groaning sounds like I’m dying while I cruise Etsy for that one thing I need so bad that I have to buy it right then. Usually, I just put it in my cart and it sits there for weeks until I finally talk myself out of it. Or, there’s the times I am trying to procrastinate all the shit I have to do and I walk into a furniture store and buy a new couch. Depends on the stress level.
But Jerimiah, he is usually better than that. He can usually keep his shit together. The world can be falling apart around him and he can be all, “I’m good.” Usually. Then this election week happened and the next thing I know, well, let’s just say that I am typing this blog right now on my new MacBook Air. Brand-spanking new. With Touch ID and e’rything. Y’all know new MacBooks had that? I did not. Now we all do.
Also, considering my old Air was about ten years old, there have been other advancements. Like did you know you don’t have to wait for 45 minutes to boot up a new MacBook? Crazy. And did you know that you can Zoom or FaceTime without any problems on a new MacBook? To be fair, I suspect that is true of most new technology. The point is when Jerimiah stress shops he stress shops big.
Anyway, just here today to share (brag) about our new laptop and to tell you to be kind to yourself. Sometimes you need to do nice things for yourself or your loved ones, and in the process it will make you feel better. I’m proud of him for acting on impulse for once. Also, depending on how long this election process takes, I’m holding out hope that he will stress-buy a 70 inch tv. I’ll let you know…
