PSA: Waiting

I've shared how I check my mail usually only once a week right?

I think I may have shared my mail and bill paying process too. If not, the short version is
  1. Check mail
  2. Peruse mail
  3. Place mail in bin until I feel like getting around to it, which is usually a week or so later

I usually don't wait until the last minute to pay bills. I guess my mind has been on other things and God knew what he was doing when I sat down Sunday night to pay bills. Once I dug to the bottom of the pile, I found an envelope I completely forgot about.

Lo and behold Mo forgot to renew her car tabs. I had a month to do so. But noooooo, I waited until the last day of the month.

Yes, I was one of those people. You know the ones who get the honor of waiting in line. A long line.

To make matters worse I was one of those women.

Yup. There I stood in three inch heels. For at least thirty minutes. With my briefcase at my feet, my purse on my arm, and my nose buried in my cell phone.

Thank goodness for smart phones. I checked email. I twitted. I read a few blogs via google reader. I checked in on the headlines via USA Today and reviewed standings and schedules at

Once I made my way to the counter, it was all good. The transaction took me about two minutes tops. I handed her the needed items; here is the form, proof of insurance, drivers license, and cash.

Then I got the eff up out of there. But guess who still hasn't signed the registration or put the new tabs on the license plate?

My PSA is don't wait unless you really have to. Your feet will thank you and you won't lose precious moments of your life to standing in line, even if they were used well.

I gotta go now. I have some peel and stick action to do.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Once a week? My dh practically sits by the mailbox each day. LOL

You're my hero. 3 inch heels. I just couldn't do it. But I have done the whole waiting until the last minute thing. Been a long time though. Hubby gets all the mail, pays all the bills that need mailing out. I do the groceries, car payment by phone, daycare & a few others. But it has alleviated me from ever sending out a bill payment. Good thing....I'd be bad! at that.

Your poor feet! 3 inch heels?! I bet your puppies were barking.

If I wore 3 inch heels I'd look somewhat tall. Of course when you're laying on the ground cause you fell in the said heels it's not so pretty.

Wow, I admire your foot stamina. Yikes!

Get those tabs stuck on, you don't want that ticket!

I don't usually wait till the last minute for things, but my emission control test has to be done by Wednesday. Meaning I'll do it on Tuesday. I hate having to rush it. Oh well. I'll be waiting around in sandals or clogs, though.
