I forgot to introduce myself

Now that I’m a full-blown Member (just made my 100th post!), I guess it’s about time. So here goes:

My name is Meg. I got married to my Swiss husband in September, and moved here from Minnesota, USA* in October. We live near Zug in a little apartment with our cats, and until I find a job, I’m a Hausfrau (although I’m really bad at it). I like exploring, cooking, being outdoors when it doesn’t involve falling down mountains (i.e., “skiing”), beer, photography, and a lot of other stuff.

At this point, we’re just about settled in. We’ve cleared most of the New-to-Switzerland hurdles…with lots of help and advice** from you guys. Now I’m looking forward to helping out other CH newbies***, **** by sharing my experiences—for better or worse.

See you around!





*We left our guns, marshmallow fluff, and tax-sheltered billions at home
**And use of the search function
***Or Chewbies, as I call them
****I actually just made that up now, but I WILL call them that in the future

Re: I forgot to introduce myself

Our "stories" are almost identical except we live 20 minutes from you and I am a Hausmann. We should combine forces and self-employ ourselves.

Re: I forgot to introduce myself

Worth the wait, I'd say. Lovely intro.

Welcome, eh?

Welcome from a fellow Hausfrau!

Good intro, if a little late .
