A Dreaded Cold Sore and Outside Fun…

So… my low today (and for the past few days) has been all the devastation that has taken place in Oklahoma as a result of the tornadoes and storms. My heart just aches for everyone that was affected. If you would like to help the victims in Oklahoma, please check out these posts here, here, and here.

My own personal low (which seems irrelevant compared to all the suffering taking place in Oklahoma) has been the dreaded cold sore. This oh so lovely addition to my face appeared yesterday and is absolutely driving me nuts (and thanks to many of you for leaving tips on this old video post regarding how to get rid of a cold sore – I have been using many of the tips which have definitely helped to fight it off before the cold sore completely takes over my lip!). Also, I went to the doctor today regarding this issue and he prescribed me with Denavir. I am not familiar with this medicine… so if you’ve tried it out or know someone who has, please let me know if it actually works. Thanks!

I tend to get Cold Sores when I am stressed out and lacking sleep – likely a result of all the chaos surrounding our recent move.

My high has just been the fact that we are finally unpacked (except for a few boxes), the kids are adjusting well to their new rooms, and we have been absolutely loving all of our outside space. Plus, the Boise weather has been perfect (not too hot and not too cold) so the kids have spent almost all of their free time outdoors.

Every Wednesday, I share my high(s) and low(s) for the past week and I encourage you to do the same in the comment section below. My high(s) will simply be the best or most exciting thing that happened to me over the last week or so and my low(s) will be something not so great that took place.
