I am glad that we have survived the first week, it may really seem so hard on my part but I am coping. Good thing that kids were cooperative and with my family extending help, things were bearable. DH on the other hand is enjoying his vacation and saw the tons of photos that he had uploaded on FB. I saw in one of the album that they visited a minting company and they need to pass by some metal detectors gold as a routine check up. He bought some gold coins as a souvenir and added item for to his collection as well.
