Back in the swing of things

I promise that pictures from our trip are coming soon. We have over 800 pictures so I kind of need to go through them and pull out the best ones to post. Beth was definitely right when she said we are glad to be home. We had a great time in Italy, but after 10 days, I think we were just ready to get back to a little bit of normalcy. It was definitely interesting watching Beth spend an extended period of time with my family. I mean let's face it, families are different and my and Beth's families are definitely different. I think Beth obviously knew that, but didn't know to what extent. She wasn't quite ready for certain things, nor had she experienced certain things with her own family so she wasn't quite sure what to make of it all.

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.
