Ok, it's not Santa Fe like we hoped. Steve's contract canceled at the last minute, like the day before we flew to Ca. There was no funding for that job, but they got him in an ER in Roswell. We arrived last Wed and were put up in a motel 6...WOW is all I have to say about it. Aliens are everywhere!
We were moved quickly to the LaQuinta the next day. It was very nice and I could have stayed there a week or more. On Friday, the 20th we moved into an old old adobe house. historic...yes! On the wrong side of the tracks...maybe? Anyway, it is provided housing, completely furnished 3/2 house. Much larger and more comfortable than an apt. We are all adjusting well to the new lifestyle here. It was a rough start but today it seems like we are settling in for the next 8 weeks.
This house is old..like 1930's but large 1350 sq ft due to an addition in the 1950's.
The kitchen with a washer and dryer
Nice living area with exposed beams
old arched doorways, hardwood floors, tile, and decorated in the old Southwest style.
Hard to believe, but this house does not have central AC. There is a window unit in the master bedroom addition ( which Steve loves.) For the rest of the house, there is a "swamp cooler" on the flat roof that blows cold air through the ceiling, looks like an old attic fan! The house is cool and dry, no humidity here. Steve likes the hospital and is enjoying his work. Spencer is homeschooling and we are excited about our stay here in Roswell. Yes, there are aliens here...I've already seen some. Updates Coming Soon !
