Classic Games That You Can Play Online During Your Break Time

For people like me who’s been working from home even before the pandemic started, it’s important that I do something different every once in a while to fight boredom and the feeling of being burnt out from work.

During days when the weather wouldn’t let me do some outdoor activities, I read books, bake, or play online games just to clear my mind and distract myself from feeling overwhelmed or stressed.

I love playing games that I do not need to download because I am reserving my phone’s memory for my son’s photos and videos – I am sure all moms can relate!

Browser-based games are the best when it comes to old games that you used to play when you were a kid. You can play all the old titles without having to raid your basement for your retro gaming console.

Let me share with you some of my favorite online games and I hope you can share some of yours too.

Klondike or Classic Solitaire. Who doesn’t know how to play this game? Spending a few minutes of my time playing Solitaire is nostalgic and relaxing. It reminds me of my High School days! I used to play this game after I am finished doing some homework and research.

But who’s got time to go to a store and buy a deck of playing cards? Also, since this game has been removed from Windows 10 in 2019, I just go to a gaming site and play it whenever I want. no need for real playing cards and a big table. Just click and play. It even does the shuffling for you. LOL!

I tried playing it online last night after work and didn’t notice the time. I started playing at 8 pm and noticed that I haven’t had dinner at 11 pm. I really wanted to finish the entire deck and didn’t realize that I have been playing for 3 hours. I just missed playing the Classic Solitaire. I also liked the Spider solitaire. The rules are very interesting. I still have to figure out to finish the entire deck. I’ll get back to it later.

Celebrating Motherhood

It has been more than a year since I left my corporate job for a more healthy and chill life. I have applied for several home-based jobs before I landed one a month after I resigned.  Joining several Facebook communities whose focus is on legit home-based jobs helped me prepare for interviews. One of my favorites is Filipina Homebased Moms (FHMOMS), a group created by a Filipino mother with the mission to help fellow parents, mothers especially, to find jobs suitable to their lifestyle through onlinejobs.ph.

I like how the group members share their views with working from home and even share job opportunities. They also have a line-up of seminars that you can sign-up to in case you are clueless with working from home or if you just want to upgrade your skills.

Last May 12, 2018, I was privileged to be invited to an exclusive FHMOMS event sponsored by Pampers. The event was held at Mom and Tina’s Bakery in Pasig City.

It was a short yet meaningful event where speakers discussed different topics. It is really helpful to attend events like this for soon-to-be-moms like myself. My favorite topics where Healthy Baby food ideas and Homeschooling.

If you are a mom planning to have more time with your family by working from home, or if you already are working from home and needs a support group, I suggest that you join Filipina Homebased Moms and follow their Facebook Page too.  It always feel good to be in a group who share the same passion with you and understand your needs and frustrations.

I hope you all had a meaningful mother’s day celebration!
