Hi Girls,


I'm an old-timer here, but I haven't had the time lately to keep up with the community.  I do lurk at least once or twice a week, and pipe up when I can.


So, right now I am sitting on a dozen eggs and heading out for egg retrieval this morning.  It does get easier with time and practice, but it is still very emotional.


I would appreciate any crossed digits, P&PT, good vibes, and power hums.


Best wishes to everyone!
Allison
