Top 10 Signs I Staged a Snow-In

10.The living room looks like a college dorm room.

9. There is a line-up of miscellaneous necessities just inside the front door: bird seed, boots, lantern, broom, extra pair of fuzzy socks.

8. By my rocking chair, there is a handy stack of books – well, a taller stack of books – along with my stash of extra pens, a book of stamps, postcards and notebook paper.

7. A spare electric heater is sitting in the middle of the floor.

6. The car charger for the phone is in the car and contact numbers are posted by the landline.

5. I scrounged up 7 gloves…only one matching pair.

4. The quilt from an upstairs bedroom is spread over the couch.

3. A basket of snacks I don’t normally eat is the centerpiece of the kitchen table.

2. There are recordings on the DVR of shows I don’t normally watch from channels I don’t normally watch.

And the #1 sign I staged a snow-in, my fridge is so packed I won’t need to do any grocery shopping the rest of March

About Teresa Pearson Lee

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. You might still find me at the reservation desk when spring rolls around. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO near The Hill. Though a transplant to Southeast Missouri, still a city gal at the core with a deep love of the natural resources in these Ozark foothills. Currently I am a content coordinator for Poplar Bluff Living Magazine and a columnist/stringer for the local weekly The Prospect News. My rescue Siamese helps with most of the proofreading; he has a great ear. I relish the solitude easily had in the Mark Twain Forest but thoroughly enjoy lively outings for music, wine, conversation close to home or in my beloved hometown. Technology is my greatest challenge but so worth the shared connections. There may be a need for solitude but there is little loneliness.
