Thanks for all the kind words... I've tried to calm down a bit. The eggs do look discolored, so I am not going to be overly optimistic, but they haven't turned green and smelly, so I am not going to be overly pessimistic. They've been on the cool side. I keep expecting the temperature here in Arizona to be a little warmer than it has been, so today I put the rubbermaid container with the eggs in it and put that container into a ten gallon aquarium that already has an UTH attached. The UTH is on one side of the aquarium, with a dish of water sitting right on top of the heater, and to the side a bit is the thing of eggs. The temperature is going up slowly and I expect that it will grow until I get the temperature just right. I don't want the eggs too warm, but I figure that too cold will either kill the eggs, or at least make them hatch a lot later. Not that I want to hurry them, but I do want them to be born sometime this year! :) I'm posting a picture of the eggs I took this afternoon. They're a bit dirty as they were laid in a dish of sphagnum and peat moss, and when I was transferring them to the incubation container I ended up getting them dirty. I figured it was better to have them dirty than traumatized during the transfer.

I did want to thank everyone who has given me advice. It helps me to know that I can at least share my first-time-snake-mommy qualms with others who've felt the same
