Both Mary and Karlie are down with some stomach bug. It began last night, when we were half way home from Ben and Trisha's. Karlie remarked that her stomach didn't feel good. We dropped Kaleb off at his dad's and as soon as we got to our house Karlie ran into the downstairs bathroom and promptly threw up. That went all night with Mary and I cleaning up starting around 3 am. Having just come off mids, I had a hard time going back to sleep. Mary began not feeling well, but wasn't sure if it was being sick or a reaction to Karlie being sick. Mary decided to stay home with Karlie and I went to work trying to figure out how to get home early. I was able to work most of my shift and then leave work on Family Friendly sick leave. After a quick stop at the grocery store. I got home to two sick women. Karlie on one couch and Mary on the other. Karlie was a little better and both she and Mary were able to hold down saltine crackers and 7up as of this writing so things aren't too bad in the Lutz household this afternoon.
