Weight of inertia

There comes a time when a procrastination mounts to such a weight of inertia that a project is stuck.  Immovable.

That’s how the blog has been these past couple months.  The longer I wait, the move behind I fall, and the less savory the project appears….Maybe this is what mounting credit card debt feels like?

This is my attempt to become unstuck.

  • Over Christmas we did some cool trips.  We drove to the west coast via Arthur’s pass, stopping at cave stream on the way.  We spent some days at Okarito beach with the Pritchard family, then some more days at Lake Kanere in our new glamping tent.  We did a couple nights at Spencer Park, just here in Christchurch.  It was fun.
  • In January I got out on some awesome weekend trips–St James Walkway in Lewis pass, and the Old Ghost Rd bike ride on the west coast.
  • For Waitangi Day we went up to Golden Bay (at Pohara), camping, biking, fishing, playing.
      Low tech map of recent travels.  I tried a fancy electronic one, but the inertia…you get the picture.

And summer has been warm!  I’ve enjoyed the evening bike rides at the local hill.  Warm afternoons with the doors open.  Wearing shorts.  I don’t think there has been any summer we’ve spent in NZ so far where I’ve had more opportunity to wear shorts!

I do have fantastic pictures from these trips.  But whether or not they get shared, at least now I can move on.

  1. Hey Molly, You call it inertia – I think I’d call it prioritizing. Being a Mom, Wife, Worker, Friend, Enjoyer of daily life – vs – spending time on the computer. I think you have the order in order. Thank you for sharing.

    • I think your family would enjoy the walk in 5 days, but not in 3 days, they were long ones. The huts really are spectacular and luxurious. You don’t get alpine though, you stay in valleys the whole time–even the saddles are still in the trees. Some people might get tired of the scenery because it goes from woods to meadow, but that’s about it. River crossings are all bridged with beautiful swing bridges!
