Transitioning with Odysseus and Penelope

LASH  me to the mast!!

It's been one stormy week for innards, outerds, and emoticons. Still, the progress far outshines the midnight hour intestinal circus without a net. My stomach was between the rocks and a hard place.

The condo sale negotiations are moving forward through a maze of epic proportions. I did not know black kitchen appliances and shag carpet were the "new look". Dang, what did I do with that beanbag chair?

Rushed out this morning to buy sauerkraut with active cultures, Greek yogurt, and kosher turkey franks at Sprouts. I didn't buy bratwurst for my innards rehabilitation program. "BRAT" in the mnemonic for a bland diet after gastrointestinal odysseys--bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast.

After intestinal misadventures I take a divergent course through sauerkraut, chili, pickles, horseradish, mustard, probiotics and fermentation. It's been working all my life, so why would I go off course?

Divergent is the new Hunger Games, so you are, once again, still trendy!

My DEEPEST sympathies (with your intestinal tract).

The smell of cooking sauerkraut may not help sell the condo...most realtors recommend the smell of fresh baked bread! Or burying a St Joseph upside down in your yard.

Fortunately we have a contract on the condo with buyers who like kimchi. Also, our school is being sanitized against the norovirus.
