bananas.jpg Today I almost doubled my sales goal at Banana Republic. Yup, that's right. I am a sellin' machine! My bubbly personality did the trick.

"Hello! Welcome! My name is Audrey, and if there is anything... and I do mean anything, that you need help with, please do not hesitate to ask me. I can and will do it for you!"

I twirled through the store, dancing between the tables. All smiles. And at the end of the day I had sold $1900 worth of our clothing. *snap* Nothin' to it.

This afternoon I was also unusually active. I shook off the massive weight of homework and reading and retail... and I went to a local basketball court with a friend. I just wanted to know if I still had some of that tomboy, that sink-the-shot-at-the-buzzer, that guys-sweat-girls-glisten... I wanted to know if I still had it in me.

And here I would like to brag... three half-court shots. So what that I did them "granny style"? I still beat David. Hah! I loved playing. And, as I associate the basketball part of my life with David, having him there joking and making fun of my skills (or lack thereof), made it even more fun. Hopefully I'll be able to play more. (I could also use the sun!)

That was my day. And tonight my husband comes home to me. I couldn't be more excited! The flight gets in at 11:45. I simply cannot wait!
