Cumin and Oregano Marinated Beef Kebabs

I've had such a hectic day. I went into work this morning at 11 and got off around 5. I rushed home to make this delicious dinner and now I'm off to see a musical called "All Shook Up" for my Theater class. I just hope I can stay awake through it all. And to boot, Timmy and I are going to Colorado this weekend. He convinced my boss to give me an entire Saturday off. But in all honesty, I work very hard and I think I deserve it!
