How to balance it all- Tapper Style.
Well, I don't balance it all.
Yesterday I truly and honestly went after my children with a dish towel screeching, "Out of my kitchen. Scat!"
It was the most Italian moment of my life.
I can't balance the grocery shopping with the laundry with piano lessons and princess camp.
*ahem* Yes there is such thing as princess camp. And yes the Dancer is attending. Aren't you glad I give you so many reasons to mock me?
Anyhoo- I just try to pick it all up at once until I collapse and go into hibernation mode. (Pretend mommy isn't here and I can't hear you. Better yet, pretend you can't talk at all. Then wake me up on Thursday.)
But I do aspire to balance. I start with small things.
One laundry basket in each hand, for instance.
And then I try it out on my home decor. Because we have strong industrial leanings over here I'm always looking for a way to make steel and machinery feel a little homier.
My favorite way to balance industrial pieces is with natural pieces like plants, rocks, fur or wood.
So for the first time ever I present our newly designed living room. This is my attempt at design balance. I will work on inner balance soon. That one's a lot harder.
