Mama's Gotta A Brand New Bag

I know it's Sunday, and I know I have a rule on Sunday that there is to be no technology, but I am breaking my own rule.
That's right I said it.
I am breaking my no technology rule today because, well look around. 
It's a whole new place over here. 
What do you think beloved reader?
Do you like my new look?
I have had so much fun working with Mrs.Alyx to change the place around.

Which brings me to my second confession, the first confession was that I broke my technology rule today in case you didn't catch that.
The second confession I want to make to you is that I really don't like or haven't ever embraced change.
But, when I approached Alyx about this new look I was so excited. 
I was nervous, don't know why exactly, but I was mostly excited.
And I have to say, I am really proud of myself for actually seeking out change.
Now granted, my blogs new look isn't Earth Shattering change, but for me it's a pretty big deal so throw me a bone people.
And finally, my last confession this Sunday, and it's one some of you might already know;
 generally I don't like to clean.
I mean I like it when things are clean and organized, but I have a hard enough time keeping up with the day to day cleaning that is required for a family of 6+2 cousins+4 village people+2 dogs, so I don't often deep clean.
BUT, and here's where the confession number 3 comes in;
IF you really piss me off, I will clean like the Dickens! (Ha ha, who's Dicken's and why does he clean?) 
Seriously, though I will scrub, I will launder, I will iron, I will paint, I will scrub some more, I will dust, I will throw out stuff I should have thrown out long ago, and I WILL CLEAN.
I have had this trait since I was a young girl. 
Ask my mom. 
So if you come over and I am deep cleaning it probably means someone really pissed me off and that's how I'm dealing with it.
What do you do when you get really irked?

Ok I think that is all I can divulge for now.
I better go before my family wakes and sees me breaking my own rule.
Shhh... you are sworn to secrecy! 

Thanks Alyx I love what you have done with the place.

I'm the same way, I clean like crazy when I'm mad. Usually the first thing I do is mop the floors because I hate mopping floors so much that I pretty much only do it when I am mad. I love the new look of your blog!

I love the new look! And sometimes we just gotta be rule-breakers, ya know? Life would be too boring otherwise. ;) Happy Sunday!

Awww, thanks for the shout out!! I'm so glad you like it!
Whenever someone pisses me off, I go straight to the gym. It's so nice to be able to just melt stress away by putting that angry energy toward a workout. Some people punch things, some people clean, I work out. I think for everyone it's mostly just about using that energy.
