All over the place...

This Monday has my mind all over the place...I'm worried, tired, nervous, and excited all in one!
---Update--- My mom got out of the hospital last night! She is home and doing good! Thanks for all your sweet messages!!
Tired & Worried because Saturday night my mom had to be taken to the hospital. She is a brittle diabetic and has been for almost 30 years. Her blood sugar got below 20 (which is VERY low and VERY scary) She was unconscious and had to be taken by ambulance :( I didn't leave the ER until 3:30 in the morning that night. Unfortunately, I am very used to this, but it still makes my heart hurt to see it happen. She is better now, just waiting on her doctor to release her. :)
Nervous because my baby starts kindergarten 2 weeks from today! I cant imagine dropping him off to "The Wild Unknown" lol I know he will be fine, and it will be harder for me, but I don't want him to grow up!!
while at the same time...
Excited because I know he will learn so much and make new friends so easily! We went school shopping and got his new football lunchbox, camo backpack, school supplies, new shoes and a bunch of new school clothes! (Old Navy is having a great sale right now!!) He has worn uniforms to his Montessori school for the last 4 years, so it was fun to do that shopping!
So anyways, I feel better already by talking about it all! ;) Everybody I have talked to today has had one of "those" days! Here's to a better week!!
(and everytime I need a smile today, I just look at that beautiful little countdown over to the right!!!!!!!!!)

So happy she is home...I can imagine that was a very tough time. I am needing to catch up on so many things since my trip. I see you have a Madonna countdown..are you seriously going? I am looking into tickets and I am sure it is going to be a pretty penny but it seems like a once in a lifetime deal.

Anyhow...I can't wait to read your 100 things!
