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.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
