Weather Report

In the past few months, my youth have taken a very active (sometimes I think unhealthy) interest in my dating life. It seems to them no coincidence that there has been a new single male attending church these last few months. As the man works for a local television station he's been dubbed, "the weatherman."

Every Sunday for the last few months, I've been getting weather reports from some of the youth about his worship behaviors, who he talks to, and general panic if he talks to the young, single kindergarten teacher (quote from my youth: "Hannah you have to fight to the death for this one!"). I've also gotten a lot of advice on how to go about wooing the weatherman.

Yesterday, an opportunity presented itself where I was able to introduce myself to him. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a couple of my youth watching this interchange with big, goofy grins on their faces.

Thus is life in the fishbowl I guess

HA! That's awesome. Yeah, my kids are VERY curious about everything related to my personal life. I cannot tell you the number of suggestions I heard from my kids on when I should propose (ranging anywhere from RIGHT NOW to 5 years from now), how I should propose ("You should propose to her at a band concert!"), what kind of ring I should get, etc. etc. etc.

Oy. Have fun with this one-- it only gets worse!

The cool thing is, you know they care, and that's why they do it. My Symphonic Band was SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED when I told them I was engaged. It was nuts. And very cool.

OK, so now that we know that "weatherman" exists... we (your loyal readers) want more. :)
