Default Inspiring..

4 days after my eldest got her (long awaited) EAD she cut her foot open on a piece of glass.. it was pretty awful, and she was on crutches and couldn't drive. She was devastated to say the least, but she had me drive her around and hopped into different restaurants and stores to pick up application forms. She had 2 interviews, and got both jobs

Monday night she was in agony with her wisdom teeth, and woke up yesterday with a swollen face Today she started both jobs, one this morning, the other this afternoon - so off she goes with her 'funny' shoe on and a swollen face, happy as a pig in sh!t - gotta admire that


Here's a pic of her foot - its pretty messed up, be warned..

You need to send her over to ABY's beauty salon for a toenail trim.

What a trooper. If she was nearby to me, I've got a job going & would LOVE to have a go getter like her.
