Bumps and ruts.

I am stressed. And irritated. And so many more things. I am annoyed that people accuse me of plagiarizing. I, my friend- am in no way, shape or form a plagiarizer. If I were, I would have A+++ in all of my classes and would be in the running for Valedictorian. Oh- you thought that I already had those things? No my dear, throw in the stress of the workday and normal things that happen and I'll admit my grades can fall into the B range. Anyways- this creates stress because now a wrench is thrown into my schedule for school and other things and I don't want to talk about it anymore.

I hate being unorganized. It too, stresses me. I like to know what's going on with everything, and I hate playing the waiting game. I try my best to be patient about things but its hard. I don't really like to wear my patient pants a lot. Its not one of my strong points and not a big virtue of mine. Sue me.

I am annoyed that I have to take elective credits at a Community College so that I can graduate on time. But that of course can't be easy. Classes are full, this campus doesn't offer that course, you have to pay the million dollar parking fee. I am supposed to be graduating in May. Who knows if that will happen on time.

Most of the time I just trudge along and have no real complaints about things. But sometimes doesn't life feel overwhelming? You finally convince your ducks to get back in the pond and start swimming in something that resembles a row and duck hunting season starts or something. Working at my office and the salon, going to 2 schools and trying to workout religiously leaves me worn out. Did I mention I was a wife? I do try to be more than the title and be a good friend to the one who loves me most. Life leaves me exhausted sometimes.

Random things.

As I sit waiting for sheets to dry...I felt like writing and found myself here. There are many random things that are looming in my thoughts that could possibly end up here. So- if you are in the mood for randomness, you have come to the right blog.

Apparently it was mowing day in our neighborhood. This makes me feel many different things. I am happy because it smells like freshly cut grass. I am annoyed because the mosquito's seem to come out in flocks instead of tiny herds. I am annoyed because it wasn't mowing day at the Beck household. Lucky ducks who get to be home all day and mow lawns. How would it be? I love driving down my road to my house and seeing all of the pretty yards...well for the exception of one. No,not mine. But one of my neighbors on the corner. No, I don't know their names. And I don't particularly care..because I don't really do neighbors. For the most part I find them to be an annoyance. Don't worry- I wasn't always like this. Bad neighbors made me this way. You can thank them. We don't live in an actual Subdivision, everyone has at least an acre of land. But apparently these aforementioned neighbors are confused when it comes to mowing their lawn. They only mow around the outside of it. Let me paint a picture. Big lawn, with grass/weeds that are at least a foot high. *wishing I had a picture* And if you look, you will see that the edge has been mowed. Yes, just the edge. Sounds attractive, huh?

Another thing. Why do people wear jeans to the gym? Better yet, why do people forget half of their clothes when they go to the gym? This annoys me. #1, I know that jean material doesn't breathe- and I am sure it feels nice as it chafes your skin. #2. How hard is it to put on a tank top? Apparently very hard for some. I think it should be a requirement.

Just in case you didn't know, we have the cutest dog on the planet. Ah yes, and as I write this she begins a barking tantrum at the washing machine. Lovely. Anyways- for the most part she is so sweet, loving and completely wild. She thinks the sun sets around me. Yes, she loves her daddy- but mommy can hang the moon.

I suppose that's all for now. Tomorrow is an early day for me, which means I have to be AT work at 6:30 in the AM. Hooray for me. And my busy jackman is hitting the road tomorrow. Double hooray for me.

I decided it was time to create a space that I can keep everyone updated on our lives. Our family and friends are scattered about, so we wanted to make something that you can come to and feel like you know how we are doing. I will tell you that I, Sheena, will be the narrator for these blogs. My other half is usually running around with a jack in hand therefore leaving him unavailable for your blogging needs. And besides, I tend to be a pretty good time when I blog- and feel sure that I would tell any story much better than he, so don't feel disappointed.For those left confused as to what my other half is doing...I'll explain later.

So far this year has flown by us. I mean- its already mid-July. Where has 2008 ran off to?
I have managed to find a great job that is very challenging and rewarding all wrapped up into one big ball of orthodontia. I continue to go to school online AND on campus starting this Fall. I know, right? However with a graduation date set of May 9, 2009 I feel much more compelled to try and get through it. At the end, I will have my Bachelor's Degree with a double major in Organizational Management and Criminal Justice. And no, I am not sure where it will lead. Only time will tell.
James has been busy learning the ways of Racing Life. He is still currently on a Hooters ProCup team,but has plans to continue down the dusty trail as soon as luck permits. I dream for him to be happy and to find a position where he feels like he is an important part of their organization. This past year has been challenging for him in more ways than one...but we continue to hold out hope that one day we will rejoice in being part of the NASCAR cup circuit.
I felt like I just wrote another About Us section. But at least we are all on the same page, right?
I suppose that is all for now, as it is way past my bedtime. Will there ever be a time when I don't have one?

Many Hugs,
