This last year left me with my first experience of Deer Hunting Season.
Hmm. Not sure how to relate this to anything in California. Oh wait! My husband working 12 hour days with a total of 4 hours a day commuting. He made good money but we weren't much of a family. In fact, I felt like a single mom for 2 years.
Welcome to hunting season!
My husband did "get one" 2 days before hunting season ended. I'm still working on the lingo here!
