Whoo hoo! 8 eggs! no idea anything else about them but
and I am simply thrilled
and relieved more than i can say
and scared that something bad will happen.

on a positive note, I came back to Squam and slept all afternoon,
and now, surrounded by beautiful creative people and am trying to pretend that I believe I belong.
amazing how this belonging thing, this fear of being an outsider, bites me in the ass even in my older age.

off to eat and celebrate.
thank you for your sweet notes, I look forward to reading them now that I found wifi!!!

So VERY happy for you! 8 is a fantastic number. Here's hoping they all fertilize and grow and turn into little Katelets right away! Thinking of you, even if I'm in commenting blah-land.

I am sooo overjoyed and excited for you, I had to write a haiku:

8 is a number
Full of joy and abundance
Kate deserves no less

I'm not a great poet, but I am one happy camper and you DO belong with the beautiful and creative people because you are the best.

Did you know 8 is a magic number in the discworld universe?
