Recap: Finding a Place to Live

Last week, we came to visit Los Alamos for the first time. We flew into Albuquerque, rented a car and drove the hour and forty-five minutes to the Los Alamos-area.

Our first stop was to see the house we had put a deposit down on for the summer... My first thought was, "it smells like camp," and not the fresh, clean, outdoorsy smell of camp, instead, it was a musty, dirty, stale smell. It was a one-room, tiny guesthouse that didn't even have the bathroom completely blocked off from everything else (which = no privacy ever). Yuck.

Fortunately, through some divine intervention, we were exploring the Los Alamos town square and found a rental property company that had a duplex that allowed dogs. Hallelujah! We looked at it, it was clean and we signed a lease right away. **Cue the heavenly choir of angels.

Our new home even has a doggie door!
