el diablo robotico

I am painfully tired. Morning after morning, I wake at 6:00. I don't know why. Sometimes it's because I have to pee, sometimes it's that Ken is stirring, sometimes I just wake up. After that, I never get back to sleep properly. I doze in little bursts, but the room's too light for solid sleep and I'm too aware that the alarm is going off soon to let myself sleep deeply anyway.

So I haven't gotten enough sleep, and my head hurts, and I'm short-tempered and unfocused because of it. I could go to sleep earlier at night, and I'm often tired enough that it's a viable option, but I haven't been doing it. I don't know how I'll slog through eight hours of work today.

I'm trying to make an optometrist appointment for Saturday. Ken and I both need new glasses. I was thinking of backing off from the super-high-index lenses they sold me last time, because there's been something subtly wrong-feeling about my vision the whole time I've had them. It could be that the flexible titanium frames they're in are bowing slightly on my face, skewing the lendses slightly from the correct angle to my eye, or it could be the material itself annoying me. If I can't find a non-titanium frame with spring-hinge lenses at this optometrist, I was considering using my last frames, which were light and comfortable and not too different from the ones I'm wearing now. They're a slightly odd shape, though, which I've never quite liked. And I tried them on last night and Ken could see that the lenses in them were thicker. I'm not usually that self-conscious about my glasses, but I don't want Ken looking at them all the time and thinking they're ugly. Should I change just the frames? Just the material? Both? The thing I like best about my current glasses is the frames, but sadly they're the one thing that is definitely going to go. (But what if they're not the problem? Argh.)

My head is too buzzy for any more coherent thought. I am definitely not one of those people who does just fine on 6.5 hours of sleep a night.
