We're not solely based in the US. We're in Israel. The land of people trying to rip you off. Oh wait, it's the land of Milk and Honey. Same difference, right? Not at all. Anyway, we could go to hundreds of stores that sell the same washing machines and hope someone will sell us one that works. We can also go to the grocery store and buy a washing machine. They basically all cost the same amount. The down side? EVERYTHING IS IN HEBREW! My Hebrew is less than spectacular - especially when it comes to buying home goods. It is particularly worse when I need to buy something electronic. Combine the two and I sounds worse than my 5 year-old cousin. He could probably buy a washing machine without a problem. Maybe we should take him to buy a new one... it'd be funny.
I think a washing machine or מכונת כביסה in Hebrew would be GREAT to have on our wedding registry. We won't be greedy - so we won't ask for a dryer but the washing machine would be amazing to have. Think it should go on our list? Somehow, I doubt the machine will last until March.
This couldn't have come at a worse time... we have to pay to have our car fixed this month plus we need to SAVE, SAVE, SAVE for our trip to the states. We also need to pay for our wedding invites... that'll be another post.
Soon, we will say Kadish for the machine but for now, we ask you to say a m'shaberach... or prayer for the sick.
