"My page was made yesterday and I submitted the site to google lastnight.. is this a process that takes awhile or whats going on?"
Otto's absolutely right - Never, in 10 years of my career as an SEO and web designer, has a site made it into google in one night.
Oh, and don't submit again - you'll get banned. No need to ever submit really - just get a link from an already spidered site to your new site. (And no, that doesn't mean here in the forums - these are all rigged up to not work like that anyway.)
"Nobody really knows when google will visit your site." - kinda sorta untrue. Google spiders the web 24/7 - and the only way to really get your site spidered is to have a link to it from somewhere else. But google crawls the web 24/7.
