6:41 PM: I blame the republicans.

After 8 days, I have broken down. As of 6:38 P.M. (well, actually like 20 minutes ago), Matthew Parten is no longer master of his domain.

It's probably all the stress from the last 3 days (mom having baby), but I just needed a release.

I still think I set some kind of heathen world record though, 8 days is a long freaking time.

Sorry, mom.
