Been here for a while but just now getting around to saying hi.

Hi, everyone.

I've been in Switzerland for almost five years now (total, not all in one go). I came back after marrying my Swiss husband. I've been lurking on this forum off and on for the past couple of years and thought it was high time I introduced myself, so here it goes:

I'm a preschool teacher from the US and am living in Thurgau. I like outdoor sports but am not seriously invested in any specific sport or hobby. As long as I can do a little bit of skiing, snowshoe hiking, bike riding, and hiking throughout the year, I'm happy.

My husband and I were at the friendly match between the US & CH last night, and I was AMAZED at how many Americans were in and around the stadium. Where have you all been hiding all this time?

I hope I can come up with ten relevant posts quickly enough to be allowed to contribute even more to the forum. "Relevant" being the most important word of that sentence. Until then, know that I'm always either groaning at you or thanking you passively rather than actively.

Welcome to the forum, Kelly. Relax a bit, take a deep breathe.

Welcome Skelly! ( I know your name is probably Kelly or Sara Kelly, but I really like the name Skelly, so I will call you that.)

Thanks, guys/gals.

I like "Skelly," too. It makes me sound cooler than I am. Now if only I could figure out what "Amanda D." is supposed to stand for . . .

It looks like I also have to learn how to properly format responses. Oh well. I'm sure that will come with time.

Hi Skelly, welcome to EF!

A friend had a cat called Skelly, named after Peter Skellern, a singer songwriter from the UK, many years ago. I am sure however that you are far too you to remember him, so I will shut up and go away.

Have fun!
