Anyone who knows Beth, knows that she doesn't have a mean bone in her body. Beth is very genuine and without a doubt one of the most loving, kind, good-hearted people that I know. Obviously some of the reasons why I am marrying her. This being said, it was hard to watch Beth get upset as she tried to figure out why my family does certain things or reacts certain ways, when she isn't used to that with her own family. Definitely a learning process. Overall, we had a really good time and anyone who has ever been to Italy knows what a great place it is.
The half-marathon is finally here this Sunday. Beth and I are pretty excited and can't believe it's already race time. The race starts at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning and they are telling people to be there by 5:30 a.m. as they start closing down streets after that. The Woodlands is about 30 minutes north of downtown which means Beth and I will need to leave at 5 a.m. Not my idea of a good time, but it'll be well worth it when we are done and I know that we'll have a great time.
We are meeting with our builder today and things should be starting on our house really soon. They say that it takes about two months from when they begin to be completed and we can't wait to watch our house be built. That's it for now. Hope everyone had a great holiday and a great start to 2008.
