Harper is in Trouble
She ran towards the shopping plaza. Oh, crap. First, she headed into the woods next to the grocery store, and towards the clearing. Chris suggested that I run out across the parking lot, and try and head her off at the pass. I suggested that I don't want to run in public in my current state. But he didn't bother to go up there, either. Rather follows me, as I sprint across the grass, sticks, leaves, and entirely too much garbage...barefoot.
It was starting to hurt, and Harper went down into a mucky culvert. This is HEAPED with garbage, and I had images of stepping on an infected needle. At this point, yes, I took another path to trap her from the other side. But there were no grocery shoppers to witness. She started to turn away from me, and I took one more mighty sprint and managed to grab her. Chris then came up, furious, picked her up and carried her the block home. I came upstairs to vent and blog this. After putting her diaper back on. Serves you right, bratty girl.
Oh, final note. She fell down the stairs Wednesday night and hurt her front, right leg. So you'd think she'd be slower... God help us if she ever gets out not injured!
