Pull my starter cord. Please.

After two months' worth of conferences, houseguests, and travel to far-off places, I am having a hard time getting back to the daily grind. I can't focus on any one thing for more than a few minutes. I'm tired, but not sleepy. There's a mountain of important work to do, but I just can't get into it. It's overwhelming. And it's not only affecting my work life. I'm frustrated with every book I pick up. There are four - four! - half-started books next to my bed. And as for writing, well, fugitabatit. Blogging? Meh.

I wish I had a starter cord like an old lawn mower. But it would take many pulls before the motor cranked up, me thinks.
