She added, “I’m putting him in a lose-lose situation. He literally can’t win. If he doesn’t work late, we won’t get the new furniture set that I have to have. If he does work later, he comes home to a nagging wife who is desperate for his attention.” She continued, “I am so selfish in our marriage and I know that. But, every once in a while, I’ll have my little ‘A-ha’ moment that gives me a sense of understanding.”
One such moment occurred for Jonna one Wednesday evening when, once again, David was working late. She had put his dinner to keep in the fridge for his eventual return and was playing with Delanie on the floor. While the pair looked at books and made play with some dolls, Jonna’s mind was like David – it was working overtime. She was thinking about how she would most likely erupt with an emotional explosion when her husband eventually got home.
