Procrastination and "snooze control"

Nothing like waiting until the absolute last day to get your vehicle tabs.

The sad thing is that I had my safety and emmissions test a week before February ended so I could be sure to get my tabs with plenty of time to spare.

Maybe that was my problem......I knew I had plenty of time and promptly forgot that I needed to do it until the end of last week. Unfortunately the DMV is no longer open on Fridays. I'd planned to be there yesterday bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 7 in the morning but I elected instead to hit snooze a couple times and didn't want to be late for work.

Anyway, this morning I ran down to my local Jiffy Lube, showed them my test results and then shelled out an extra ten bucks for them to issue me my tabs. I figure I deserve it for putting it off for so long. Sure I could have driven to the DMV over in Provo and been at their doors at 7, but, as I am sure you guessed....the snooze button won again.

I need to keep my alarm across the room from my bed...out of easy reach.

I tried that moving the clock to the other side of the room. Heck I even put it in the next room. It didn't help. I would sleep walk to the clock, hit the snooze and jump right back into bed.
Nice idea. Maybe it will work for you.

I have been driving around with my (finally!) "passed" emissions/inspections papers in my vehicle for over a week now. I guess today would be the perfect day to pay a visit to the DMV. Thanks for the reminder! Could you do a post like this every year? ;0)
