How do I look for a new job when I'm too tired to look?

One of my biggest dissatisfactions with my current job -- office temp -- is that I don't get paid vacations. And 5+ years without a paid vacation has left me exhausted and burned out. So I need to find something that will let me actually HAVE some god-damned time off.
But -- "exhausted and burned out" is a really lousy headspace to be in when you're job hunting. I procrastinate in sending out applications and resumes and I put off looking at want ads because it just feels like yet more of the same old big pointless slog I'm already going through. And I'm also not at my most scintillating on the job and in interviews.
It doesn't even have to be any dream job, just something that will want me full-time so I get the benefits. Something stable, because I'm sick to death of the instability.
