    The actual answer is "I am."

    Myself is reflexive. Only you can do something to/for yourself and only I can do something to/for myself.

    I shop for myself.
    I am in charge of shopping for my household.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
