Conference, Cold Sores, and Easter Bunnies

I love conference weekend! I have such a great love and respect for our Prophet and his Counselors and Apostles. Being able to watch them and heed to their counsel has helped me get to know them on a more personal level, and it makes my personal relationship with my Heavenly Father that much stronger, I feel closer to him. I think for the first time in years, I watched conference all by myself. Nate had the boys this weekend so it was a little weird not being able to hear the kids in the background. Watching alone did have it's perks though, Like the fact that I was able to sing the hymns as loud and as off key as I wanted without putting any one's hearing at risk :0).

There was really only one downside to this weekend. I've been a little stressed because I've been trying to find a job for the weekends, when I don't have the kiddos, to try to bring in some more income. I haven't had much luck. I'VE been handling the stress ok, but apparently my BODY hasn't. When I'm really anxious or stressed out I break out into cold sores, see................

So, I guess I've been a little more stressed than I thought (or at least my body thinks so), cuz this is what I woke up to this morning. Gross, huh. This is just the first one, I can feel 2 more trying to pop up. :(

I can't believe that Easter is next week already! My boys are so excited :) So on Friday I took them to go see the Easter Bunny at the mall. Tytan didn't really know what to make of the Rabbit, but Eathan was ecstatic :0)
I do have to admit, this is one of the CUTEST Easter Bunnies that I've seen so far :)

Oh yeah! Eathan is now riding the bus to Pre-school! He's growing up so fast :( He loves the bus though, it makes him feel like a "big kid."

Cold sores said...

Cold sores occur due to herpes simplex virus. The symptoms are itching, tenderness, soreness in skin. Some herbs are effective in treating it like, echinacea, liquorice, goldseal, chapparel and lomatium. Many prefer vitamin E oil, alcohol or ice. Lysine, Vitamin B, arginine is also effective. But one should always consult doctor first before using mentioned all above remedies.
