When I was a child, I often heard the oldies mention the term “diversion”, like if they want to have some form of entertainment.
I have realized what diversion meant when I became a mom. I think it was something to refer to anything that will take your mind off motherhood. Let’s face it, mothers, no matter how much we love our kids, there will come a point in our lives that we just want to have a few hours to ourselves. Otherwise, we become monsters who can scream our heads off while taking care of our little ones.
The usual things that I heard my aunts do before were to go ballroom dancing, play bowling, or play mahjong with friends and family. The problem with mahjong, however, is that they tend to go overboard and play for long hours without going home to their families. So I guess that we have to make sure that if we have a “diversion”, it will not mean neglecting our families.
Take for example, Mecca Bingo. It is a good online game that can provide you with a diversion without your having to leave the house. For some bucks, you can already be a member and play at your own time and pace. With just a click of the mouse, you can have a swell time playing in your own world.
Or you can check out
Diva Bingo. It is quite a new site but it has a growing membership, most specifically among women because the site is catered especially for them. They have a great interface that is predominantly pink and has a lot of animated designs. And the best part is, they have great prizes, rewards schemes as well as big jackpots for the lucky winners.
The good thing is, you don’t have to leave home. You can decide to spend only 30 minutes online and then get back to working on your chores. You don’t have to think of getting dressed, travel time, or looking for a parking space. Just a word of caution though: do everything in moderation, moms! 😀
