There's so much I need to do today, but I just want to stare out the window and turn my brain off. My head feels kinda fuzzy, like it's full of that stuff that comes from sheep. Focusing is difficult, and I keep thinking of things I need to do and then immediately forgetting them. I think my brain gave up.
DH's cousin hit me up for a loan last night. She's the second person who's come out of the woodwork in a week asking for a bizarre request from me. Last week it was a guy I tangentially worked with at a summer internship 8 years ago who wants to use me as a reference. I have no idea how to respond to that. I barely know his name. Thanks, Facebook.
I'm not sure how to handle the request from the cousin. She's in a bind, has made a lot of mistakes and is paying for them, and has two small children to boot. She doesn't need much and has said she'll pay it back (the amount is small enough I probably won't miss it if she doesn't, which I suspect is going to be the case), and I'm torn between giving her the money she probably legitimately needs and telling her no, you've made your bed. My personal policy is I'm not a bank. I don't lend money.
It's the second time she's asked us for money in a year. I'm shocked she asked me, though. I know she won't use it for drugs or alcohol, but I feel like giving her the money would enable her and open the door to future loan requests. DH has been useless, which is pissing me off because she's HIS cousin!
I have a headache that smells suspiciously like a migraine, and in the time it's taken me to write this, I've gone from hot flashes to chills back to hot flashes. I may just end up burning some sick leave.
