Roman

(no subject)

I woke up a little late this morning. Just had time to shower, check email, grab two muffins. I did watch a little of Alias, which I taped last night (the last ten minutes or so). I weigh 196 pounds, so am working my way down again. It seems like I will never find the balance that allows me to reach and maintain the weight I want, the shape I want.

the journal

My all-day journal, written longhand all day long yesterday, seems like so much drivel right now. There are one or two things that stick out a little, notes about cats and coffee. It is a structure that maybe I can use. Maybe I will use it later to write about "a day in the life of" either about me or some fictional person. I think it was a good effort, as they say, and I will do it again.

HEADACHE

It's huge. I don't know how I will make the next hour, then the eye appointment. Drugs! I need drugs! Strong ones.

glasses

The eye exam was thorough and the doctor thoughtful. I was impressed. It didn't cost as much as it might have, either. The glasses were another story that way. I found reasonably-priced frames but chose transitional lenses. They are plastic and change tint with the light. That little feature costs a bundle. They will also have scratch-resistant coating, non-reflective coating, uv protection, and a two-year guarantee. I sure as hell hope I like them a LOT.
