Boring here as well, nothing to AW or vent and I have not had strange comments. Maybe an odd look here and there when I mentioned we are leaning towards schools with a nonreligious background due to our own beliefs, but then again that might be the same look I give someone when they mention they are only considering the religious schools. Might mean nothing more than 'Hm, didn't know you were religious/an atheist'.
@iliketurtles, I'd feel really weird if someone'd tell me they would pray for me because I am an atheist. Like they feel that is not a valid way to live or something. Does it bother you?
QOTW: No, but then I don't really talk about it. I'm sure I'd get the "I'll pray for you" thing like @iliketurtles. Although, I did get accosted at the post office about 7 or 8 months ago about what church I go to, and when I said I don't, the lady was all "you've got to raise this little angel in the church!" Then gave me her card- she's a pastor- and invited us to her church.
QOTW: I try to tune people out as much as I can. My family is Irish Catholic on both side. I try to not engage them about religion or politics. The only reason they know i'm not religious is because I do receive the eucharist in church. I remind them that most of them shouldn't either because they don't attend confession regularly. No one likes to be reminded of that.

Not much has happened in regards to this.
It hasn't ever really been brought up. The only thing I can think of is that my.mom.asked if Dh could be my little brother's confirmation sponsor a few years ago. When we told them we don't have a church (they required some paperwork), I just remember a sideeye when we saw them at the event. We didn't go into detail about anything though.
