Me & My Muse – Day 2025: The Roller Coaster Continues

Having experienced a 6:00 Journey Group meeting and work, this roller coaster is now at the apex of the hill.  Thursday and Friday remain before it pulls back into the the station for the weekend.

And tonight is another Financial Peace University course, so I can’t wait!  That’s pretty much the gist of today.

Today’s high is going to be 36 degrees and the silver lining is experiencing another FPU course.

To those of you who like budgeting and saving money, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Another FPU course?  I think I’ll listen to this one.  It’s pretty amazing!


Me & My Muse – Day 2024: Toastmasters Day

For me, today is a very important day.  Instead of going to my Toastmasters club at work that meets during lunchtime, I will be going to a business meeting offsite and will be working with another fellow Toastmasters member to discuss and plan a Toastmasters club for MidMichigan Health.  This will be a great informational meeting, and a wonderful way for them to learn more about Toastmasters and the features and benefits that they and their employees can gain from chartering a club in their area.

The meeting begins at 11:00, so wish me luck!

After that, I have a makeup Toastmasters meeting tonight at my home club.  Because of the bad weather, the meeting has been delayed by a week.  This works out, since next week is a fifth Tuesday, so there will be a two week period between this meeting and the next.  Safe to say, today will be a day full of Toastmasters.  Time to get it underway.

Today’s high is going to be 26 degrees and the silver lining is going to the business meeting and the Toastmasters meeting later on.

To those of you who like planning and executing plans with others, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Much warmer than yesterday!  Anyway, good luck on the business meeting!  That reminds me.  I have a Intangible Toastmasters meeting tonight…

Me & My Muse – Day 2023: Welcome to Siberia!

If you’re thinking of going anywhere this morning, then you might want to wait.

As I am typing this, it is currently -12 degrees outside.  If you factor in the wind chill, it is more than 20 below!

If your schedule is not that flexible, I highly recommend that you allow yourself some extra time this morning.  Let your car warm up for at least 15 minutes.  Now that’s granted that you’re able to get your car started at all.  Take it slow and make sure that your phone has a full battery.  If there’s an emergency, you don’t want it to be dead.

That’s about all I have.  I’m going to be working at my office in the Michigan Tundra. It should warm up today, so cold is better than extremely cold, I guess.

At the end of the day, I’ll be treated to 17 bean soup.  The perfect thing to have on a cold day! Yum!  I can’t wait!

Today’s high is going to be 15 degrees and the silver lining is being able to work in a warm office.

To those of you who are braving the cold this morning, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  12 below?  Minus 20 windchill?  I’m staying in bed…

Me & My Muse – Day 2022: Shivering Sunday

If you looked at your thermometer or cell phone this morning, one thing was quite clear.  It is very cold outside!

For those of you who live in the wonderful state of Michigan, you were able to experience weather in the single digits.  For me, I woke up to it being two degrees below zero.

For today, I got up and went to church.  I greeted, went to Young Professionals, greeting again, and went to the second service.  My parents and grandparents were there, so I was able to go to the service with them.  After that, we all had breakfast at Stackers.

Now that I’m home, I’m going to take it easy.  I will listen to my audio bible and will take it easy for the rest of the day.


Muse:  It’s so cold outside!

I know.  But shouldn’t it be warmer where you are?  You should be able to control the temperature…

Muse:  That is true, but some of my Intangible abilities in terms of weather take on a life of their own…

Dark Muse:  It’s so cold!  Tee hee!

Dark Muse!  Where did you come from?

Dark Muse:  I was back at the Tower of Muses!  After that, I decided to stay at Muse’s house for a while!  I so miss being my true form!  Tee hee…

Maybe the creator knows how to restore her…

Muse:  That’s what I have been telling her.  There has to be a way to make her true form permanent…

Dark Muse:  I WISH I could go back to my true form!  That stupid Adversary messed up my form!  I was getting used to my true form but then I turned back a day later!  Why couldn’t the Creator make my form last longer than day 2000?  Tee hee!

Who knows?  I’m to take it easy now.

Dark Muse:  I think I’m going back to the Tower of Muses.  It’s a little bit warmer there.  Tee hee!

Muse:  Are you sure?  You’re always welcome to stay at my house!

Dark Muse:  I know, but I need some time to think!  A lot has gone on and I need that time.  I hope that you understand.  Tee hee!

Muse:  I totally understand.  Take as much time as you need.  You’re always welcome back at my place!

Dark Muse:  Okay.  Bye Twinie! Tee hee!

*Dark Muse vanishes in a cloud of smoke*

Muse:  Kyle, I’m going back to my house and I’m going to curl up in a warm blanket.  You’re welcome to join me if you want… 🙂

I might take you up and that, but I would like to get some things done first.

Muse:  Okay.  See you later if you want to come over!

*Muse vanishes in a beam of light*

Time to take it easy.  And if you’re going outside, bundle up!  It is very cold out there.  And if you’re in a warmer state, enjoy your heat… 🙂

Today’s high is going to be 8 degrees and the silver lining is being able to stay warm inside.

To those of you who are staying warm inside or outside at a warmer state, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Time to read my favorite book, while wrapped up in my favorite blanket!  Oh, and I can’t forget my hot chocolate either.  Ah!  The furnace turned on too!  Perfect timing!




*Dark Muse appears on the top floor of the Tower of Muses*


Dark Muse:   There!   Tee hee!  A nice big bed, all to myself!  I really miss being my true form.  I was Twin Muse!  When can I truly be myself again?  I’m trapped in the body of a stupid child!  A misguided kid that only learned how to do what is wrong.  No wonder why my past is so painful and confusing…Tee hee…

???:  Stupid child, huh?  Are you tired of that, my dear?

Dark Muse:  Adversary?  Tee hee!  Get out of here!  You’re stupid!  I don’t want you in my life!  Go away!

The Adversary:  Stupid?  Those are rather strong words coming from someone like you.  Is that how you talk to someone who has raised you all of your life?

Dark Muse:  You’re a thief!  You stole me out of my mother’s womb and raised me!  I know the truth!  You’re a lying mean stupid head!  Tee hee!  *blows raspberry*

The Adversary:  Are you believing those lies that The Creator told you?  You were abandoned and I found you!  Now, my dear, are you tired of being a stupid child?

Dark Muse:  Go away!  I’m tired of being around a stupid face!  Tee hee…

*Dark Muse begins to run away, but is teleported by The Adversary*

Dark Muse: No!  Stop! Tee hee…

*Dark Muse begins to squirm away, but The Adversary waves his hands*

The Adversary:  You are unable to move!

Dark Muse: Urgh…Urghh!!!  I hate you!  Why are you doing this?  Tee hee…

The Adversary:  It’s for your own good.  Now, I am tired of you being a little brat.  It’s time for you to grow up!

*The Adversary shoots a beam at the Dark Muse and she flashes, growing into a young adult with a powerful dark aura surrounding her*

Dark Muse:  Thank you.  I needed that…

The Adversary:  Anything for you, my dear…

Dark Muse:  Now what is your wish?  I will grant you whatever you say!

The Adversary:  I want you to “Go home”!

Dark Muse:  Oh.  That!  That thing I did when I was little?  Where is she?  I will enter her immediately!

The Adversary:  Oops!  I forgot to give you all your memories back.  Here.  But don’t go yet.  You’re not quite evil enough.

Dark Muse:  Not evil enough?!  How can you say that?  Haven’t you taught me everything you know?

The Adversary:  There’s still more to learn, my dear.  I need to see that hatred in your eyes.  You can see her Friday, okay?

Dark Muse:  No.  If I’m going to be evil, I’m going there now!

*The Adversary restrains her movement*

The Adversary:  You are going nowhere!  The training begins now!

Dark Muse:  Urrrr…Sister, I’m coming for you!  When I get free!  Urrrgh…

Me & My Muse – Day 2020: Weekend is Here!

And with that, you’re going to get a short entry, since I’m a little tired tonight.

Work was productive, as usual and I was able to get some more progress in planning for Tuesday’s meeting at MidMichigan Health.  For tonight, I’m going to take it easy.  Time to enjoy the weekend!

Today’s high is going to be 29 degrees and the silver lining is the weekend finally being here.

To those of you who are glad that it’s Friday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  The weekend is here at last!  Time for some hot chocolate and a good book…

Me & My Muse – Day 2019: Financial Peace a Day Late…

What’s on tap for tonight?  With with done for the day, I can enjoy a Financial Peace University Course.  With a birthday happening yesterday, it was moved to today.  I can’t wait to learn more about saving money!

This was have to happen on the early side, since I have a Toastmasters business meeting tonight.  That’s my Thursday evening in a nutshell.

Today’s high is going to be 30 degrees and the silver lining is having the Financial Peace University class tonight.

To those of you who like taking life-enriching classes, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Another Ramsey Course?  That course was fun last week!  I can’t wait to hear what you learn this week!
