Me & My Muse – Day 2966: Dinner at Grandma’s…

What’s on the schedule today?  After work, my brother and I will be visiting my grandma, since I want to keep her company.

Muse:  That’s nice of you!

I know.  I really want to get out and keep connecting with others.  These are the people that I love and I want to keep showing this more and more.

Muse:  That’s good.  Also connect with your other friend as well!

That’s the plan.  One thing at a time and one step at a time.

I’ll let you all know how it turns out.

Today’s high is going to be 88 degrees and the silver lining is being able to have dinner with my grandma.

To those of you who like having dinner with your friends and loved ones, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  Well, it’s the weekend. I think that I’ll join him for dinner…

Midnight Muse:  Tag!  You’re it!

*Midnight Muse enters Muse*

Muse:  Nah.  Don’t think I’ll join him.  I have a different plan.  Hee hee hee!  Ha ha ha!

Me & My Muse – Day 2965: Anniversary at…home

Okay, not really.  I’ll explain shortly

What anniversary are we talking about? My parent’s 43rd wedding anniversary.

Having recently gotten home from work, I wished them a happy anniversary.  For this year, they decided to go and have dinner somewhere, and they took their motorcycle out.  I will also be watching a movie.  What movie?  The latest God’s Not Dead movie.  Gotta love Pure Flix!

Muse:  Yeah.  It’s pretty good!

I know.  The movies have been very good.  It’s nice to relax to a movie at the end of the day.

Muse:  It’s looks like you’re doing better.  Do you think that you’ll be out of this soon?

Most certainly.  It’s been a trial, but one that I’ll surely be able to overcome.  And when that day comes, I will explain everything.  For now, just know that I am making progress.

Muse:  I’m so glad you are.  I have all my homework done for the summer and I’m ready for my senior year.  This summer has been too short…

I know.  With this trial, I feel like a lot of the days have been flying by.  I know that this is not a vacuum.

Muse:  It’s not.  Glad you’re able to leave your island.  You’ll get there…

Anyway, I’m going to cook some Hungry Mans and enjoy a chocolate chip cookie from Aviator Cookie Company.  They have good cookies if you’re ever in Midland.  Check them out by clicking here!  That’s pretty much this day in a nutshell.  Happy anniversary mom and dad!

Today’s high is going to be 88 degrees and the silver lining is being able to enjoy this evening and celebrate mom and dad’s anniversary.

To those of you who like to celebrate milestones with you family, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  I’m SO glad he’s making progress.  As for Midnight Muse, I hope that she doesn’t show up.  She’s bad news…

 

Meanwhile…

Midnight Mues:  Urrgh!  There!  I’m free!  It’s going to take more than that to keep me trapped.  A coma in a banished dimension?  Ha.  You’re gonna have to do better than that, Kyle.  Time for a new game.  I’m gonna play tag.  And you, sister, are IT!  Hee hee hee!  Ha ha ha!

Me & My Muse – Day 2957: Happy Birthday!

Once again, the day is here again. I’m another year older. Another year wiser. Getting on the subject of birthdays, I really love them. Most of us love celebrating the day of our birth. This is usually done with presents, a special dinner and the cake and ice cream, with is the staple for most birthday parties.

Birthdays are also the time that you get numerous people coming out of the woodwork. If you have a facebook, you will find a number of people that you normally never talk to wishing you happy birthday. I actually don’t have a problem with this, since everyone who does this are people that I do know. Some, however, are people that I haven’t talked to in years. Oh facebook and your birthday stalkers. You never cease to amaze me…

Muse: Happy birthday, Kyle!

Cake 2

For me? Thank you!

Muse: I am also taking a day off from being a teen, so you won’t have to worry about that.

That’s nice to hear. I wouldn’t want you to be preoccupied on my birthday!

Muse: Actually, I have to go to the mall right now. I’ll be right back.

Really? Not on my birthday!

Muse: Just kidding! I will not turn into a teen. I promise.

I can remember how last year’s birthday was. You were a time traveler and you took the day off so that you could spend it with me. The year before that, you were a tween and you took the day off so that you could spend it with me. The year before that, you were a mermaid and you took the day off so that you could spend it with me. The year before that, you were a Jedi and you took the day off so that you could spend it with me. The year before that, you were were a baby and I wished for you to be an adult for a day. And the year before that, you were brought from the past with Gabrielle so that I could celebrate my birthday with you. And the year before that, you were just getting over your shy tics. And the year before that, you were the Dark Muse…

Muse: You mean the Bad Idea, right? For just that one day, I was normal. After that, the Bad Idea took over again. It was terrible.

What about being a teen? I haven’t seen Midnight Muse lately. She won’t interfere, will she?

Muse: She won’t. There’s nothing that you need to worry about. So, what do you want to do, birthday boy?

Whatever I want. After all, it is my birthday, right? Well, I do have to work, first. Besides that, everything else is fair game.

Muse: Right. It took me quite a while to make that cake, so please eat all of it.

Don’t worry. I will, just for you.

Muse: Don’t I get a piece?

We’ll both eat it. We’ll eat it together…

Muse: What about your brother?

All three of us. We will all eat it together.

Muse: Sounds good to me!

You…look beautiful. Even more so than other days.

Muse: It’s for you. I appreciate your level of creativity. It keeps me healthy. The new ideas that are born. The ideas that eventually ripen into the most delicious of food. There is never a shortage. You always provide for me, and I’m thankful for it. You may be going through a lot, but patient. I know that you’ll get through this…

Well, if I leave you starved, it doesn’t help me at all. I don’t mind going the extra mile to keep you healthy.

Muse: Your food has given me a unique vitality. One that almost blurs the lines of reality and imagination. I long to be a person like you, but alas…There is a wall of separation between us.

Deja vu much?

Muse: I know. I said that last year, and it’s still something that I long for. When you find your wife, you will find me. The REAL me.

Muse: Like last year, I will ask again. What do you want to do on your birthday? Well, after work, of course…

I just want to have a nice dinner with my family. A nice dinner with some cake and ice cream. Before that, I’ll be working at East End. Later on, I’ll head home.

Muse: As you wish. It’s your day, so I won’t sway any of your decisions.

Good. I’m sure that you won’t be swayed by this…

*gives Muse a kiss on the lips*

Muse: Hey. I was just about to kiss you! My turn!

*Muse gives me a big kiss*

That was really good. There’s plenty more where that came from later.

Muse: Not too later. I want to be back by midnight. I don’t want to spoil my beauty rest…

Oh yeah. That’s right. Well, I better enjoy my time with you while it lasts…

Muse: I’ll enjoy my time with you as well. Anyway, I’ll let you get ready. Happy 37th Birthday, Kyle!

*Muse gives me another kiss and vanishes back into my head*

Isn’t she amazing? I love her immensely and I hope to meet her true identity some day…

From that exchange, it looks like my Muse already gave me her gift, and I shared it with her. I will also eat all of that cake with her and my brother. Man, am I going to feel that in the morning.

For today, I will be working and enjoying my birthday early in the day. After that, I will have a nice dinner with my brother, parents, my sister, niece, and grandma at Lucky’s tonight. After that, we will go to grandma’s for cake and ice cream. Today’s high is going to be 88. It’s supposed to be sunny, so that will be nice. The silver lining today is pretty obvious. It is my birthday and my brother and I will be enjoying it.

To all of you who love birthdays like I do, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Happy 37th birthday, Kyle! I hope that yours is a really good one…

Me & My Muse – Day 2940: Monday Again

Yup. It’s another day completed and I feel optimistic.

What are my plans for this blog? Stay tuned. I haven’t forgotten about all of you

Today’s high is going to be 90 degrees and the silver lining is already being through the first day of the week.

To those of you who unwinding after work on this Monday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse: Yeah. This Monday is finally over! Time to read a nice book…

Me & My Muse – Day 2939: Back in Town

After driving for two and a half hours, refueling my car and unpacking at my place, I think I’m going to take it easy for the remainder of the day.  That’s about it for this one.

Today’s high is going to be 88 degrees and the silver lining is being able to unwind back at my place.

To those of you who like returning home after a fun weekend, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  I glad that you really enjoyed your weekend!  I’m glad it was nice and sunny.  It looks like you’re starting to come around.  Let’s talk some more, okay?

Me & My Muse – Day 2938: Plenty of Saturday GoodNES…

The NES weekend continues, and I’m currently enjoying myself at my friend’s house up north.  Just recently, I played a little bit of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island a game that I haven’t played in a long time.

Earlier, I helped my friend out with folding some laundry for the inn, since he is on duty this weekend in taking care of the inn while his landlord/inn supervisor is gone for the day.

Later on, my brother and I will get some fish and some chicken for our friend.  After that, we will watch another episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and chill some more.  That’s pretty much this day in a nutshell.

Today’s high is going to be 83 degrees and the silver lining is being able to spend some more time with my friend.

To those of you who like spending the weekend with friends, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse: You’re having fish later?  I want some!  Let me know when you’re going!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend! (He’s still kind of copying but it is his third one…)

Me & My Muse – Day 2937: FriNESday Road Trip

If you are reading this, then you know what’s about to happen.  Yup!  It’s another NES post!

But what if you’re new to this website and you don’t know what a NES post is?  Or what if you forgot what a NES post is?  That’s perfectly okay, as I will fully explain the meaning behind this to everyone, both old and new to this site.

Why is it called a NESday?  Quite a long time ago, my friend came over to my parent’s place to hang out.  Or we would go over to his place to hang out.  On the day that he over, it just so happened to be a Wednesday.  With it being Wednesday, we emphasized the NES in the day of the week.  It became WedNESday.  For those of you who are not really into video games, NES stands for Nintendo Entertainment System, a video game console created in the mid 1980’s.  Since my brother, me, and my friend all love video games, NES became that umbrella term.

From there, NES spread to other days of the week.  Whenever he came over or whenever we came over to his place, it was a different NESday.  There was SunNESday, MonNESday, TuesNESday, WedNESday (the original), ThursNESday, FriNESday, and SaturNESday.  Every day spent with my friend was a NESday.

Having fully explained that to all of you, I hope that better clarifies what I mean by a NES post or a NESday.

Getting back to the post, both I and my brother are fully packed and are ready to hit the road.  Our friend now lives up north, so we will be taking a road trip up there to visit him for the weekend.  I will be leaving shortly and should be up there by dinner time.  I will be staying there the rest of today and all of Saturday.  Both my brother and I will be returning late Sunday morning to beat the winter storm that is expected to hit our area.

All in all, it should be a fun weekend, full of Agent Carter and Nintendo Switch games.  I even brought my Nintendo 3DS so I’ll be able to get a little play time in on that… 🙂

So as to not delay my brother, I need to get ready to hit the road.  I am all done with my work so it’s time for a NES-filled weekend of fun.

Today’s high is going to be 79 degrees and the silver lining is being able to spend Friday evening with my friend.

To those of you who like to visit friends that you don’t see often, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  You’re visiting your friend?  Enjoy your weekend up there!  I think that I’ll be joining you as well.  It’s going to be busy on the way up, so be careful!

Me & My Muse – Day 2936: The Real Relief of Thursday

How so?  For starters, work is finished for the day and only one day remains: Friday.  After that, the fun can officially begin.

The other relieving part of this day is the brevity of this entry.  To further simply things, this post will be brief.  Enjoy Friday Eve everyone!

Today’s high is going to be 31 degrees and the silver lining is the weekend almost being here.

To those of you who are looking forward to the weekend, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  Friday Eve?  That is so awesome!  Tee hee!  Weekend, here I come!  Oh!  By the way everyone.  Psst!  Just between you and me, I think that he’s reusing one!

I heard that!

Muse:  I know.  Just try to be original, okay?  You’re getting there.  Congrats for posting again!

Me & My Muse – Day 2935: Oil Change and Panda Express…

Whoa.  Is he really doing it?  Is Kyle ACTUALLY typing a new entry for once?

Yes I am.  While I won’t reveal much right now, I am still going through some things.

 

Muse:  I’ll say!

Yes.  It’s been a little while and I am still going through some things.

Muse:  Kyle, I really miss you.  I know that you have been going through a lot.  I have been praying every day that you have been absent from this blog.  I always have it in my mind “When is he going to come back?”  What you are going through, I can say, is a whole lot.  Just know and remember this.  God’s got this.  He’s helping you through this.  Don’t forget!

I have not.  For a trial of this magnitude, it requires great patience on my part.

Muse:  I have been praying for patience.

I know.  And I thank you for that.

Muse:  Are you going to get your creative spark going again?  It’s only a matter of time, isn’t it?

I hope.  It’s all up to God’s timing.

Muse:  You are back at your office again.  Isn’t that great?

Yes it is.

Muse:  Don’t sound too excited!

It’s all the excitement I can muster right now.  Don’t you think I would like to sound 100% excited?

Muse:  That was more like 10% excited just now.  I know Kyle.  I know that you do.  Just know that we’re all pulling for you.

I know that you all are.  And in writing this one today, I don’t want to wait until I’m 100%. I want to get back to my creative writing prowess.  Don’t know when that will happen, but I want to get something out.  Anything.  Even if it’s not a work of art. I was given a gift of writing.  I don’t want to lose it.

Muse:  You still have it.  You just haven’t used it in a while.  And with what you have been going through, I’m sure that it has been a battle.

Yes.  Certainly one that I don’t want to lose.

Muse:  You won’t.  Now can we discuss the title?

Yes.  After work today, I went and got an oil change.  Tonight’s dinner plans include a long overdue trip to Panda Express, since there is a birthday card from last year to use.

Muse:  Sounds like a plan.  I hope you don’t mind if I join you.  I haven’t done anything with you in a while.  I know what you’re going through and you’re going to need your friends to help you out of this.  You will get there.  Just hold on.

You can join me.  It’s going to be my brother and I.  There is definitely room for a third person.

Muse:  Then it’s settled.  We leave when your brother is ready?

Yup.  That’s the plan.  (I can’t believe I am finally getting another one of these done.  The spark is there but it needs a fire to thrive.  Hope that I can keep this going once again…)

Muse:  (Don’t worry.  You will!)

So here’s a brief recap.  I worked today and had an oil change.  I will be having dinner with my brother at Panda Express.  My Muse will be tagging along.  That’s pretty much this day in a nutshell.

Today’s high is going to be 75 degrees and the silver lining is having a nice inexpensive dinner with my brother.

To those of you who like eating Chinese fast food, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  Congratulations on making another entry!  Yes, I know what you are going through but keep it going!  Maybe you will be able to get out of what you’re going through and really make some progress on these!  I hope that your brother ready soon!  My stomach is starting to growl and I’m feeling a little hangry…

 

Me & My Muse – Day 2893: Happy 62nd Birthday, Mom!

While I certainly wasn’t present on your birthday a year ago, I am most certainly present with you now.

Mom is at home and we’ll be able to celebrate her birthday as a family.  She is enjoying her new gift:  A Garmin Vivo Smart 4 Smart Activity Tracker.  I wished her a happy birthday and she has yet to open her card from my brother and I.  I don’t know if she’ll have cake, but I know that there will be ice cream.

Today, I will be going over to grandma’s with mom, dad, and my brother to join my sister, my brother-in-law, my niece, and grandma for a birthday dinner of pulled pork sandwiches.  After that, we will be going home.

So, you’re all probably wondering what has happened to me.  What has happened to Kyle and has he fallen off the face of the earth?  To answer the first question, I will get to that.  There has been a lot of personal things in my life that I have had to sort through.  I will certainly explain it in future posts.  And to answer the second question, no.  I did not fall off the face of the earth.

Another thing that you’re probably going to be confused about is the numbering of the entries.  Why am I skipping 255 entries? (Technically, it’s 256 since I left out an entry in December.)

Muse:  I was wondering that too.  Are you ever going to get back to that?  There are so many missed entries!

I know.  And wow, you’re very small.  Almost the size of an atom!  Fortunately, I can see you with my Creator’s Privileges…

Muse:  I know you have other reasons as to why you haven’t updated.  Just hang in there and know just one thing.  You ARE going to get through this…

I know.  It’s a process that I’m still working on.  So, what’s the plan to restore the Walker Estate and Me & My Muse?  The story arcs will be worked on and written and be separated by post numbers.  It’s a gradual process but it’s all going to happen eventually.

Muse:  Is there going to be a Tower of Muses?  The next one is in a week!

Not necessarily.  The priority is to restore this blog.  The short and choppy posts will be replaced by longer ones.  I may keep the older ones and use post the new ones as “B” entries.  That’s the plan moving forward.  Consider this a trial entry as I am trying to get things back on track.

Today’s high is going to be 88 degrees and the silver lining is it being my mom’s 62nd birthday.

To those of you who like celebrating special birthday milestones, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Muse: It’s your mom’s 62nd birthday today? Tell her that I said happy birthday, okay?

Muse: Also, he still is not aware of the truth.  I replaced his Muse at birth to save my twinnie!  I hope that we can get her back soon somehow…

Me & My Muse – Day 2633: Saturday GoodNES…

To cut a long story short, my friend Jeff is over here right now.  I will now call it a day.

Today’s high is going to be 33 degrees and the silver lining is Jeff being over today.

To those of you who like having friends over for the weekend, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  I’m glad you’re enjoying your time with him!  Enjoy it while it lasts!  That reminds me, I still have some company that’s over to tend to…

Me & My Muse – Day 2632: Starting off Rested

When you celebrate the arrival of 2021, go to bed at 12:30 a.m., and then get up at 8:00 a.m., you’re going to feel quite rested.

To sum up last night, I pretty much took it easy with my family and their friends.  My parent’s friends came over, along with my sister, my brother in law, and my niece.  It was a mostly chill evening and I enjoyed everyone’s company.

After that, I had some snacks and listened to some of my music and then watched a couple New Years videos on YouTube with my brother: The Final Countdown and Gangnam Style.

After that, I rang in the new year with me, my brother, my parents, my sister, my brother in law, and my parents friends. Me and my brother ran outside and honked the car horns, letting the entire neighborhood know that 2021 has arrived. After that, me and my brother toasted to the new year. We made a couple toasts, celebrating the hopes of my brother getting a new job, 2021, and new beginnings.

After the toast, I got ready for bed. It was getting late and I didn’t want to be tired the next day.

With this done, I will now relax. I will have some more snacks and try to go to bed early tonight.

Today’s high is going to be 32 degrees and the silver lining is being able to ring in 2021 with my brother last night.

To those of you who are enjoying the first day of the year, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Muse: Wasn’t last night great? My house is a mess from last night. Time to clean it up…
