Who am I? What is my purpose here?
Pretty hefty questions. How best to answer?
I am no one. I could be anyone. To some people, I guess I am someone. For the most part though, I am no one.
If the word average had a ‘T’ in it that would be me. Average to a ‘T’.
To you, I hope to be Mabd, The Midnight Mama, mother of five, gaming since I can remember and chronically spending too much time in my own head for anyone else’s good. My kids ranging in age from 7 months to 15 years old, three boys and two girls. I live on the ass side of somewhere and the front side of nowhere… strategically positioned to at once not worry about anyone seeing when the husband decides to take a piss off the back porch but close enough to ‘civilization’ to be glad I’m not there more often in 20 minutes.
I am up often in the middle of the night… the baby was restless and now, so too, am I. Someone lost their stuffty and we had to mount a search and rescue effort at 2 am. Or, sometimes it is just the only time when all is still and quiet and I have better than a 15% chance of making it through a Youtube video or kicking The Bunker’s ass without being interrupted.
So, I have decided to share my dead of night antics to invite you to share my small thoughts in the small hours and otherwise commemorate my life after midnight.
