What a day already!

I got Emily off to our church's girls' camp this morning. She woke up at 4 o'clock, then 5 o'clock, then 5:30 when she finally got up. She had to be at the church at 6:15 a.m. Oi! I wish the leaders would have chose a time when I'm normally awake to leave! She will be gone until Friday. I hope that she has a fun time! I always worry the first year my kids go to camp. I never know if they'll listen and obey their leaders, if they'll be homesick, if they'll get hurt. So many things to worry about as a mom!

Matt has his very first dance performance tonight. He is so excited! I have to go pick up his costume today. I'll post some pics. =)

And then there's my mom. She pushed her nurses' button yesterday morning and told the nurse that little children were playing in her room and were laughing and hiding behind the furniture. So the nurse when in to check and there were no little children in her room. A little while later she called the nurses station about 5 times in a 15 minute period to remind them to bring her medication... that they had already brought her just 5 minutes before her first call.

My sister called me this morning and told me that my mom had called her house this morning at 3 a.m. She told her that the people in her room kept telling her she was in the hospital, but she knew she wasn't since nothing looked familiar and she couldn't remember getting there. So my sis asked me to stop by today and visit for awhile to reassure her and that she would do the same. How I hope this is something that they can figure out why she is doing this and can fix it.

So I'm off to get started with my day that I wish was over all ready. I feel like I've already put in a full day's work.


  1. I hope Emily has fun at church camp....she will be just fine I'm sure. But us mommas can't help but worry!!

    I'll say another prayer for your mom!

  2. I bet you do feel ready for the day to be done. Bless your heart.
    That is sad about your mother. Hopefully they can help her with meds or something.
    It's hard sending them to camp isn't it, but they always have a great time.
    Although one of mine came back with lice last year. That was a first and I hope the last.


  3. Hang in there babe, one day at a time.:)

  4. Your mom's situation sounds like a tough one! I am praying for you right now and I am asking God to strengthen you during this time.

    I hope your tomorrow is a good one.
