today, i don't really have a choice. i'm having a get-together at my house tonight, and it needs cleaning. so i'm cleaning. ellie is wandering around. and is apparently in mortal danger if i'm not watching her constantly.
so far today she has:
- sat on my open dishwasher and pulled it out of the wall.
- poked herself with a nail i didn't know was sticking out of the garage door.
- stuck her finger in a candle flame.
- carried a bottle of kitchen cleaner around for five minutes before i noticed.
- nearly walked off the back steps unattended.
- climbed the step stool angela gave her, threatening to jump off and break something.
- got her finger smashed in a cabinet - twice.
