I did manage to avoid doing anything domestic for five hours, though, also Facebook and tv, (took willpower), and I finished reading _The Godfather_, and I took a longish walk with Ellie. So, I'm going to call that a win, since the goal is to try to habituate myself to long stretches of focused work again. (Instead of trying to do things in many little bits and pieces.)
Just took some Advil -- if it helps with the headache, I may take another stab at the writing before dinner, if the kids allow. May just think about bad guys for a while. There are lots of different kinds in _The Godfather_. Useful.
