Now that I have your attention, listen.

Listen very, very closely.

Do you hear me?



No, really, I haven't driven off the deep end of reality, but I did do something I never thought I'd ever do in five million years....

Do you want to know what it is???

I will tell you...

if you listen.

So, last night J & I went out to a club in DC. It's our new favorite spot. And, every Saturday night there is a theme. Last week it was St Patrick's Day night & I wore a Catholic school girl outfit. This week it was Spring Fever & bathing suits were optional. Now, I left the house is jeans & a really cute backless shirt. I stuffed my teeny bikini in my purse thinking MAYBE I would wear it, but probably not. Well, a few drinks in to the night & a request from a new friend, I changed in the ladies room & put on my teeny bikini.

I wore a bikini in public. And, even though I have worn it to the beach to get a tan, I wore a mom suit to the public indoor pool earlier in the day. Because, well, wearing a teeny bikini while playing with your children in the indoor pool where there is absolutely NO SUN seems ridiculous to me. And, considering who I seem to run in to at the indoor pool, I am glad I didn't try to pull that off... It was sufficiently strange enough without having to worry about things popping out. Snort.

But, yeah, I put on the teeny bikini, coupled it with my killer heels & strutted around the club with a small onset of lookers...

Who am I? Who have I become? What has come over me?

You know what? After YEARS of struggling with my body image, I am finally comfortable with what I have. I instruct aerobics for fuck's sake (yeah, we aren't all stick figures, I swear) & I did get quite a few compliments last night in my teeny bikini. Hell, I've birthed twins & I am PROUD to be able to wear a bikini in public PROUDLY. Did I mention the word of the day is PROUD?

Please do not confuse this with me thinking I still can't stand to lose a few or tone up a bit, because let's face it, that's always an option. But, it feels good to just let go of your inhibitions & DO THE DAMN THING!
Until next time...

The United Kingdom agreed to place Transjordan under the administration of Abdullah bin Hussein, Retro Jordans,who was given the title of emir (usually translated as prince). Emir (later King) Abdullah had been a key Brirish ally during the Arab Revolt against Turkey in World War I and was viewed by London as a potentially useful partner to help maintain its influence in the region after the war.3 The offer for Abdullah to rule Transjordan was also made to co-opt him and prevent the Arab leader from disturbing British interests in the Middle East. Such a disruption appeared possible in 1921, as Abdullah had been traveling north from Mecca wirh a Bedouin fighting force while indicating an interest in harassing French colonial forces in Syria. He also had a significant grievance which led him to favor such a strategy.

The French had deposed Abdullah’s younger brother, Faisal, from the throne of Syria because he was viewed as insufficiently cooperative with them. Cheap Jordan Shoes,Abdullah was interested in either helping to restore Faisal to Syrian leadership or, more probably, replacing him in that role. At rhis time, the British leadership was working with France and wanted to prevent Abdullahs attack against their allys forces in Syria. More subtly, London did not want to provide the French with an excuse to expand their power southward in response to any provocations that might be made by Abdullah or any other local leaders. As a result of this confluence of these interests, "Iransjordans first government was established with British assistance in April 1921. The chief task that faced this government was to build a functioning state where none had previously existed. Ideally, jordan releases,this would involve the creation of a government with a supporting bureaucracy, the establishment of a police and military force to keep order, and securing at least some minimal level of loyalty to the government by the local population.
