Parenting is a full time job in itself – and that’s without throwing a “real” job into the equation. Being a work at home mom is a constant juggling act, and almost every free moment I have is spent trying to get some work done. Between answering emails, writing, working with clients, interacting on social media and everything that comes with the multiple hats I wear, I often wind up feeling a little frazzled.

Sometimes I just need to take a break, no matter how much work is still on my plate. To relieve a little of that stress and tension, and to just get a little mindless entertainment, I enjoy playing online games. It doesn’t need to be anything fancy, just something engaging to pass the time and give me enough of a break that I’m ready to get back to work afterwards.

I actually prefer the really simple games that you can play for a bit and then move on with your day without feeling like you have to get back and finish that one level you couldn’t get past earlier. For me, I actually find that the simpler the game is, the more addicting it is! Pogo.com is one website I’ve discovered that offers a lot of free online games that fit the bill.

Tonight, I have been passing the time by playing Poppit Sprint. It’s a simple game where you pop balloons of similar colors that are in groups of three or more. I only intended to play one or two rounds, but the girls fell asleep and instead of working, I kept playing – LOL!

If you’re looking for something to pass the time for a bit, you can test out Poppit Sprint right here! Let me know what you think!

Race against the clock and pop as many balloons as you can. To play the Poppit!™ Sprint puzzle game, all you have to do is pop groups of two or more balloons of the same color in one minute. Fast pops of three or more balloons of the same color increase your multiplier and score.

I used to love playing the original Poppit on Pogo. I’ll have to try this new one!
