Left alone due to her husband Carls hectic schedule as a criminal attorney, Dianas journey on the mommy track consisted of laundries, play-dates, and coffee-clutching. None of this felt right to Diana, who suffered from a sinus infection that had a half-life of radioactive material and which kept her in bed, although not for the purposes her sex-starved husband had in mind. Go to work and buy me a mommy, she told Carl one morning- his response caused her heart to palpitate in what her doctor had previously diagnosed as a panic attack. Jon was eight, and Ali, six- was she really ready to leave the protective status of dependent on her husbands tax return? How would she make it home on time for the school bus? she worried, until Carl convinced her to take the perfect part-time job, and suddenly she worried she would never make it home at all.
