I am a 40ish girl who absolutely loves her life! I am blessed beyond all imagination - that doesn't mean times are always easy - but they are always do-able! My husband is so stinking cute!!!...and my kids are the greatest, I really like them a lot! We run our Century ranch together as a family, we put up our own hay, raise hereford/angus cross cattle, and do all the ranch work together as a family, with the help of "Papa", and our friendly neighbors. I love being a homemaker, helper, friend, mother, wife, coffee drinker, and stall mucker! Sometimes though - things happen around here that "I didn't sign up for"! Sometimes they are funny, sometimes not......

Tim McGraw vs. George Strait

Not even a toss far as I'm concerned.  I love Tim McGraw's music and he's definately helped country music reach a whole new generation, but will there EVER, and I mean EVER, be anyone who could compare the the most awesome George Strait. 
When our middle son, Colten, was a toddler, he was convinced that when he grew up he would "rope and work on George Strait's ranch in Texas".  It was his pact answer whenever asked "what do you want to be when you grow up Colten Ben?".  Love it!  Today, he'll tell ya that he's changed his mind a little bit.  He wants to take over our ranch, along with his sister, and continue to carry on the Struble tradition!  I love that even more!
As I'm typing this, I'm listening to our two boys, and three of their friends (who stayed the night for an all night XBox party UGH), rock out to our local country station while they're cleaning up the yard.   It's really funny to listen to them, I sorta feel like I'm invading at times.  I've heard:  "Man, I just wish it'd snow", "Nick, did ya bring your shotgun", "do you think they knew we were playing hide-n-seek in the barn last night", "Crap,,, "yeah, dog crap". hahahaha.  and my favorite yet, (directed at me when I went out to see their progress), "Hey Woman, Get Back In That There House And Cook Us Some Grub"....Boys....gotta love 'em.
guess I better sign off and go cook......


  1. Those boys sound like they would be fun. (They meant that as a joke right?)lol

  2. Yes Ma'm, they know better than to tick-off the cook! ;)
