We've had a major distraction in the last 6+ weeks: both our daughters have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. (Note: we are actually upbeat and feeling generally good emotionally, despite a now more complicated gluten free diet). Between researching Celiac, cleaning out the kitchen, trying to find a new white toaster (white seems to be an outdated color???!!!), and managing doctors appointments and reading every label, I've barely had time to focus on homeschooling...the girls are 5, so I'm feeling great that they've gotten lots of unstructured time ;) but certainly in the upcoming years I'll need to be more committed!?!
How do you stay disciplined when big things arise in life?
