A Woman, a Story, & A Life In-Between: First Day of School by Tiffany Blair

Well, the State Fair of West Virginia is back in town and that can only mean one thing. No, not deep fried Oreos (which are delicious, by the way). It means that summer is coming to an end already. All too soon, I’ll be back to complaining about the cold and sliding my way across […]

Technology by Tiffany Blair

As much as I love it, I have to admit that technology has made me both lazy and stupid. I’m not just talking about my inability to do math without a calculator (which, by the way, is downright embarrassing). I mean that advancements in technology have crept deep into the recesses of my brain, and […]

Lady Scouts by Tiffany Blair

A Woman, A Story, & A Life In-Between: Lady Scouts I keep hearing so much about the 2013 Boy Scout national jamboree that is taking place in the area this month, and I can’t help but feel slighted that there isn’t a similar opportunity available to women like myself. It’s important that we don’t lose […]

Shoes For Science by Tiffany Blair

I fell this morning. I was running late and stepped on a small rock in the driveway as I hustled to my vehicle. My ankle turned, my arms flailed wildly, and for a fleeting moment I thought I’d saved myself. I was wrong. I went down like a ton of bricks (bricks wrapped in a […]

Impromptu Dance Party by Tiffany Blair

A Woman, a Story, & a Life In-Between: Impromptu Dance Party. A few weeks ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with my hands balled into little fists of fury. I shook them out, took a few deep breaths, and went back to sleep. Since then, though, I’ve noticed that the same […]

Spider by Tiffany Blair

For about a week now, I’ve been living in fear. One night last week I was sitting on the edge of my bed, preparing to take my night-time dose of Glucosamine (have I mentioned I have the knees of an 80-year-old?), when I felt something brush my forearm. Having curly hair, I assumed it was […]

TURNING 30 and the Five Kübler-Ross Stages of Grief by Tiffany Blair

My sister is turning thirty. For some reason, this makes me feel really old. I’m two years older than she is, yet somehow I feel as though her turning thirty is like my turning thirty a second time. I’ve decided that the five Kübler-Ross stages of grief are the only way I can possibly work […]

Poor Monty by Tiffany Blair

I think I am going hire out my dog, Monty, as a hairdresser. I say this because his breath could straighten your hair (and maybe even give you highlights). I know that dogs can sometimes have stinky breath. I know this. This dog, though…his breath smells like roadkill. Or maybe it’s more like hot garbage […]

Vacation by Tiffany Blair

I need a vacation. More specifically, I need a beach vacation. The last time I went to the beach was in 2009 during a cruise and it was fantastic, start to finish. Given some recent events in the cruise industry, however, I’m going to back-burner a repeat on that particular type of excursion. Call me […]

When I Eat Chocolate by Tiffany Blair

A Woman, A Story, & A Life In-Between – When I Eat Chocolate I really have to watch myself around chocolate. When I eat chocolate, everything else around me fades away into a haze. I get lost in oblivion and the only thing that matters is the smooth, rich sweetness taking over my senses. Don’t […]
