Female Spitting Spider With Eggsac - Scytodes thoracica - female

Female Spitting Spider With Eggsac - Scytodes thoracica - Female
Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas, USA
June 27, 2014
Size: ~8mm
While this isn't the best picture, I was surprised to see her holding what appears to be an eggsac. This female was found wandering around the corner of the kitchen, which has a door that leads to the outside. I don't know much of the identification of this family so any comments would be appreciated. Thanks!
