someone who's pregnant tells you what they are going to name their baby and it's EXACTLY what you always had in mind??? I make a habit of not giving out that information ... I will say, "Oh, I like that name" or "That's cute ...", etc. But tonight, for the first time, I thought I was going to die! My DH's cousin has struggled like we all have and is finally pregnant. She found out that she was having a girl a few weeks ago and this is the first time I saw her to talk about it. I knew I was going to ask her about any thoughts on a name and for some reason, this morning, I had a feeling that she was going to pick "my" name. Little did I know that she was going to pick the WHOLE name - first and middle. When I asked her, inside I was praying, please say Jenny or Rachel or Brittany - anything but Olivia .. and certainly anything but Olivia Grace. What does she say? Olivia Grace! How can that be? I think back and maybe I mentioned that name in the past but I doubt it because I'm pretty tight lipped about our issues around DH's family - it's like poison ivy! So, how it is possible, with all the names out there, that she picks the EXACT name I have envisioned for my baby girl (if that ever happens)??? I had a difficult time even holding a straight face and not getting upset when she told me she was pregnant and now this??? I tried - and I kept a smile but that was at 3pm - it's almost 11pm and I couldn't wait to get back and type this on DS. I know it sounds petty - there are a ton of great names out there. But this is family so that means it will be a constant reminder of what I want ... or wanted. It's just kind of like the end of a dream for me ... I guess my only hope is for me to have a boy and ensure that I get "my name" this time around ..... =D Any thoughts?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
