First off- I am going to have to break this down
into a couple of posts.
What fun questions some of you had.
Before I start answering question
 these are some of the things I saw
in the last couple of days.

I will answer one question
right off the bat-
Laurie asked me-
Why are Tete and Jettie NOT allowed
to ask you questions?  
Here is why!
As soon as they saw that they couldn't 
they started e-mailing me.
Here is a sample of their questions!
Do you stuff your bra with tissue paper or foam?
Do you like granny panties or tighties?
At least she didn't ask if I wore a thong!
How many WARTS do you have? seriously, Jettie
When you get up in the middle of the night, 
do you dribble as you walk?
Do you slurp your soup, 
or do you eat it daintly like the rich folk?
Have you read 50 shades of gray?
In the middle of the night, 
when no-one is watching, 
do you sneak food, 
saying those calories don't count? 
Are you REALLY blond?

Now-Do you see WHY?  
These are both very intelligent 
middle aged women
who revert to 6th grade behavior
when they think they can
AND I should have added 
my ex-sister-in-law, Ellie,
to the No Questions roster but I didn't think
her computer was working.

Moving along to the REAL questions!
I had several questions that asked 
How do you keep up?
Well, for starters I am very organized.
That can be a talent or a curse-lol
I sleep 6 hours maybe 6-1/2 at the most.
If I sleep more than that I am groggy,
When I get up- I make sure I have my post up,
I drink 2 or 3 cups of coffee, 
and watch the local news.
I also read any comments
that came in during the night.
I then have a "list" of things I do-
Sweep through kitchen,
make the bed,
throw a load of laundry in,
do an odd job or two like mirrors or dusting.
After I do my little morning chores I sit down,
pour myself MORE coffee
(Donna asked how many cups- 6 to 8 a day,
Awful, I know.  Hey-it's better than vodka, right?;>)
Then I sit down with my laptop 
 and answer any unanswered comments 
I have waiting for me.
If I have time I will also visit a few blogs.
Then my day takes off from there.
I might go grocery shopping or run a few errands
or I might sew or paint something.
If I am out and about
I try to be hone by 3pm and I sit down with 
my computer and Dr. Phil (yes-I-do)
I answer a few more comments and/or
visit a few more blogs while his show is on.
Then, I usually make dinner.
I might then go to kid's volley ball game
or run one of the grandkids somewhere.
We watch a bit of TV and then 
when hubby goes to bed
(He goes to bed early 
because of his schedule at the hospital)
I spend about 2+ hours on blogging.
I am a VERY fast typist-
seriously fast.
On weekends I usually have kids
so just speed things up a bit with
chores and don't spend as much
time blogging.

Okay- That took way longer than I thought
and I don't want to bore you all.
Tomorrow I will answer several more questions
about how I grew my blog, etc.

Thanks for all the questions.
Some are fun and some are crazy
(not mentioning any names Jettie, Tete, Ellie)

Thanks for hanging in here with me
while I am traveling.
Headed East from Munising, MI
this morning.

ps.  You can continue to ask any questions
you might have!

Tete said...

You are the most twisted of us, so I wonder what your questions would be if this was all turned around. 6th grade behavior? I resent that. I think we are strictly working from a 4th grade level myself. I have a couple more questions here, too. Wood or glass eye and what type of denture cream do your use? Boxers or briefs and I have the secret to your success. People come here to see what SweetCheeks is up to...not saying that you aren't funny and all that, but that kid's got you beat hands down.
Have a good day away from home and find something fun to do. It will give Jettie and I time to talk about you behind your back.
Love you bunches, you crazy blonde.

Lori said...

Oh, and I thought my four or five cups of coffee was alot! Your day sounds a lot like mine. But, I get a bit more sleep.

Jettie said...

I'll bet she uses bubble gum to stick those teeth in, Tete.
And I did think of a thong, but decided you'd forget you had it on, in the rolls of fluffy that sweet cheeks says you have.
And Tete wants to know, if we act like 6th graders, does that make us smarter than a 5th grader?
Love yas Gal, and have fun, while Tete and I think up more questions.

oh my gosh, I'm still laughing, sorry but I am,

bj said...

Do you SLEEP in your blonde Loni Anderson wig or do you take it off at night...???
You silly silly woman, you.....:))

bj said...

...and besides all can you get 6 hrs sleep, drinking all that coffee...and how many times a night do you go to the bathroom...and are those trips made with your eyes open or shut....??? in the world can you stand to watch DR. PHIL..???

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

LOL! I think the answers to those other questions might be interesting, too, Diana! : ) I look forward to seeing more. I'm hoping there were some Sweet Cheeks questions. Can you tell I'm a fan?

Beth said...

LOL!! Loved the answers!

Patty Antle said...

I enjoyed hearing what your schedule is. I like to see how people spend their days now that I have recently retired. I'm still trying to figure it out. I got caught up on you posts. You are very entertaining. Good reads!

miss flibbertigibbet said...

Uh oh....I think I'm about to be lumped into the JeteTete club!

Busy Bee Suz said...

You are so organized....and I LOVE that in a person!!!
Safe travels!

Nellie said...

I just absolutely LOVE your blog, Diana, and probably have lots of questions that just don't come to mind at this point.:-) Wish you would come south on some of your wanderings. I doubt that we will ever make it "Up North." xo Nellie

Cristina Garay said...

hahaha oh my, just too funny! Have a fun trip :)

Donna said...

I am still laughing over those goofy questions, Diana! I had tears in my eyes over the thong! 6-8 cups? I'm surprised you manage to sleep at all. And how many Diet Coke's do you drink?? Ok, I am totally let down that you watch Dr. Phil. That guy has the biggest ego ever!!:)

Kelly said...

You're a woman on a mission! LOL! I loved reading how you spend your days. You and I would get along well, because I have a similar schedule (if you want to call it a schedule). I do chores, drink coffee, take care of my family etc. I can really reltate. Oh....and I'm a fast typer too. LOL. Hope you're having a great trip! Those questions that you shared were funny, btw.

Kelly said...

Oh and just one more thing.....I just read the latest comments by Tete and Jettie. I think they need a time-out!

Kelly said...

Oh....and add BJ to that list too. Ha!

Ron said...

LOL! I love it! I loved reading how you spent your days. You are a hoot! Good one yet again.

Junkchiccottage said...

How funny those questions!!!! You bring out the best in people!!!!!!!

I love the smell of coffee but after 55 years on this planet I still do not like the taste so I am a tea drinker mostly ice tea all day long. That is how I get my kick!

You post made me laugh.

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

Great it! Your schedule is very similar to mine! Hugs, Penny said...

Oh to me your like a dear Abbey. Only much prettier. Much wiser. You never put people down so maybe your not like dear Abbey. I know you are (YOU).T.L.C.

A lovely person. It is like I have know you from day one. You talk the same language with all of us. I looked forward to read your blogs. never stop blogging. And updates and pictures. Oh mercy I am addicted to your blogs. Oh I must go. Someones calling me.

Love your family and Gkids.

So let me guess.

Your hubby is a doctor oh there you go.

That is why he is a good sport. I know my one friends hub is a doc and he is a real hoot.

My day is similar as being organized that is me.

Getting up some times early. Know later then

8. You beat me. Your a early riser like my hub.

I like coffee too.

Your posts are my morning paper cartoons. Well besides the family circle. Your pages with Sweet cheeks is so funny.

Glad your enjoying your trip.

You are so loved.

Just a minute.

Ok did you get that bear hug from me.

Oh wait till I slide back out of the computer. I am hooked on the side screen. okay. I am back in. Was not easy with your hub driiving so fast. I am sea sick.

Have a nice day Girly.

yes Girly. Your a young looking gal.

Good genes you have right.

Tete said...

I am going to go check out that bj. Sounds like Jettie and mine's kind of gal!
I think the next post should be for questions to ask SweetCheeks stuff about you. After all, she doesn't lie about a thing!

Stephanie said...

Hey sweet lady! Your day sounds like mins, except you sound like you have way more energy than me :) I will enjoy reading more tomorrow. Safe travels!


Jettie said...

Where do we find this BJ?
Who can spit farther, you or your hero?

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, I have enjoyed catching up with you this morning. I join you with the coffee, drink way to much. Enjoy the humor of your post. I let everybody else ask the questions. 20/30 in new eye and glasses on the other isn't a fun way to type, but I manage. They are scheduling the right eye. I am not an earlier riser any more, but then I stay up later. Amazing what not working anymore does to you. Have a wonderful trip and I want to see more pictures. Ha. Take care. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Cranberry Morning said...

Seriously, Diana, do you have a Cinderella complex or something? lol I was expecting you to add to your long list of chores you do, the 'clean out all the cinders in the fireplace.' LOL You're a real go-getter. I'm feeling lazier by the minute. But I too only sleep about 6 hours max, then 3-4 c. coffee in the morning and like to work FAST. :-)

Honestly, some of those questions!!
Stay safe and have a great time. :-)

Simple Pleasures said...

Wow, I really expected you to be on the computer like 6 hours a day. You must be speedy. lol Glad your enjoying your trip.

LANA said...

Whew! I am tired just reading about your day! My goodness Nana Diana, I sure wish I had your energy. And I need a minimum of 8 hours sleep or I am useless!

Chatty Crone said...

I was trying to go rhru it and add the hours up! I can't really tell how long you are on the computer - 6 hours? Of course I am comparing to myself. Lol I am on there now around 4 5 hours. I was on a lot more when I posted every day. I need 8 hours sleep. And I can't start til around 9! lol

Love your answer and would love to know the answers to the others too.


Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Ok..I missed some of this Diana!
But now I am jealous like crazy of where you are going i think.
Love that area!
Have fun and hugs,

Melanie said...

Laughed so hard! What wonderful friends you have!!

Anonymous said...

Fun questions/answers and thanks for sharing the photos, too.

Renee said...

your posts always make me smile. I keep trying to be organized a failing badly. But not giving up.

missy said...

Ya coulda stopped with Jettie and Tete..What a hoot !!!

missy said...

PS Their comments are hysterical...The three of you make quite a Trio..

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

I think I need to talk to Tete and Jettie to learn about the real you! LOL You guys are a hoot! Ok so I was way off on one of my questions! I sleep about the same as you and I feel groggy if I get more. You out drink me in the caffeine department but I do love coffee!

Gypsy Heart said...

You answered my question!! I don't have a clue how you post, read and respond to sooooo many. I guess I love to sleep more! :)

Hope you're having an awesome trip ~ enjoy every moment.


Dewena Callis said...

You forgot to say that you leave such encouraging comments, not that you would say that so I'll say it for you. I confess I have not read all of the above comments but I bet they would all echo what I say, "I still don't know how she does it--but it's so nice that she does."

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

Hahahaha! I loved the questions from those gals! So funny!
I wish I was half as organized as you - and I really wish I could function on 6 hours of sleep. I've always liked to sleep - as a baby I would sometimes sleep all night and not wake up till 11 or 12 in the morning!

Vee said...

Does this mean we'll never know the answers to those questions?

Maureen Wyatt said...

I'm afraid our schedules are where we diverge. You have a schedule and I don't. I spend the first half of the day trying to decide what I will do with the second half.

Heaven's Walk said...

lololol!!!! Ok....You, Jettie and Tete definitely need your own TV show or something, Diana. No question about it!!!! lol

The Polka Dot Closet said...

So, is it tissue paper or foam???? Girlfriend you are such an open book, that is why you are so fun to visit. Whenever I write a personal post no one reads it lol! They just want to know how to do stuff. I seldom talk about anything personal, I wonder if people would be interested? OK, so here is my question. What does hubby do, you mentioned hospital and what does he think of your blogging, revealing personal information, and teasing him. My family totally does not get my blogging...Or really anything I do lol


GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

that's a lot of coffee... I'd have to schedule a lot of bathroom breaks :)

Wish I could type fast... I actually do type fast. It just takes a while to correct mistakes!

Fun reading this post and getting to know you better! Sweet lady!

The Refeathered Roost said...

I'm not asking because I already know you are really Loni Anderson's secret twin! I won't believe you if you deny it! I do wonder if you live on the air in Cincinnati at WKRP or were you ever an assitant/receptionist there?

20 North Ora said...

You make me tired! I just don't seem to accomplish near what you do and have no excuses! The questions were interesting and funny.

Travel safe,


camp and cottage living said...

I could've followed you on the road today!
Tim and I headed East from Marquette this morning, but cut down to Hwy 2 since it had been a while since we'd seen Lake Michigan
Are you going to Grand Marais?

Blessed Serendipity said...

You know what I love about coming to visit you Diana? I always feel like I am visiting a friend and leave with a smile on my face. I loved the comments today too. :) I hope you are having fun on your trip.

Meredith @ The Laundry Can Wait said...

OMGoodness...^^^^BJ up there asked if you sleep in your Loni A. wig or take it off...I about died. :0 And all those questions your "6th grade" friends asked. Lord have mercy!! They are too funny. I really did enjoy reading about your schedule though. Can't wait to learn more.


Patty Patterson said...

I missed this post! But - at least it was the question post and not the answer post. The answers might be interesting. :-)

Pat said...

What a fun post. Coffee seems to be your secret weapon on getting it all done,,,Hope you are having a wonderful trip! Also thanks for letting me know I was a no reply...think I fixed that!

Katie said...

I hope to be you in the future, oh my I have a similar routine!! I drink 2-3 cups of coffee and then sometimes more in the afternoon but I have tons of energy so as long as I eat healthy and exercise..carry on, right?
