Labor Day Sucks

Seriously, Labor Day sucks! Why? Well, it sucks on so many levels I can't give just one explanation. Here are a few to choose from:
1. it is NOT a holiday in Germany (our labor day is on the 1st of May)
2. I planned a quiet morning of freebie hunting before the late shift, but ended up in the waiting room of the emergency room, because...
3. Chris sprained his ankle this morning in our driveway on the way to work and partially tore a ligament. They are forcing him to rest by putting his foot in a cast, which means...
4. for the next 4 weeks this will be a one woman show
5. and worst of all, True Blood's season finale isn't till next week *aaarrrgggghhhh*
When I'm done feeling sorry for myself, I'll post some freebies - that should be tomorrow ;-)

Sorry to hear about your guy's accident. Having to shoulder all of it truly sucks, I totally feel for you.

I second the chocolate therapy idea.

Sorry to hear about your honey's ankle. No worries on freebies girl. Life tends to take priority. ;)

May your week go faster and easier than expected.

Thanks for all that you do Angie.

No labor day in denmark either.. I feel your pain!! Heh.. The last time I had my leg in a cast I was told not to put any pressure on it for 8-12 weeks.. After two weeks I was driving.. That doesn't count as putting pressure on it now does it?! ;) I think your man will be up and running again in no time.. Just make sure relaxing isn't too comfy for him, or he'll take advantage of it.. ;)

I'm so sorry abut your ER visit. NO fun!!! Hope Chris gets feeling better soon!

I'm totally 100% with you about the True Blood finale. I thought something had gone wrong with my DVR when it didn't record. Then I realized...WHAT??? WHY??? It's somekind of unreasonable torture for them to make us wait another week! lol

Amanda said...

Does it help that it was a holiday here and it was like any other day only I had everyone home? The best part was going grocery shopping alone.

I hope Chris' ankle heals quickly. That's gotta hurt.

S said...

Ouch all around! Time for lots of DVDs. A friend has just got throught her hubby breaking both arms, needless to say the video store made a good profit those 6 weeks. Hope its a speedy recovery.

Ladye said...

Boy, eal life can suck sometimes, right? Hope he heals fast.

1LuvnMama said...

Bummers all the way around. It's really not a holiday for me either b/c I'm a SAHM. Sorry to hear about the ER situation. Praying for a speedy recovery!

;o)

Anna said...

I'm so sorry!
Hope things start looking up!

I wanted to share a freebie quick page on my blog with all my fellow digi-scrappers!

Angie, Thanks for all you do!

Sorry about your DH's accident, and I agree with Bree...you need a medicinal dose of chocolate.

Question: Are you German or an American married to a German?

Shaunti said...

I love the new "real" you! So refreshing :-)
Sorry to hear about Eric's oops I mean Chris's injury ;-)

Jen said...

Oh no!!! Hope it goes quickly and he mends up.

sorry to hear about your hubby - and your upcoming one woman show - this really sucks..
but what I understand most... why wasn´t the true blood final to find in the web yesterday - We have to wait till next week?????
I could´nt believe it yesterday....

Crystal said...

I'm so sorry about the accident! I hope he gets better quickly!

I just posted a kit on my blog that is for a little girl with brain cancer. Anyone can donate any amount to download the kit & all the proceeds will go to her family. I know you get a ton of hits on your blog & if there's any way you could help spread the word, that would be amazing!

Like I said, it's not free, but they can donate as little as $1 & get a HUGE kit (22 papers & 25 elements), as well as help out the family.

Thanks! :)

nomee said...

Hope he's okay...I never really comment on anyones blog, but I find myself enthrawled in your daily life tidbits. Including the TrueBlood (which is my fav show at the moment) I found myself dreaming of Eric after reading one of your posts about him...LOL. Anyhow, thanks for all the freebie hunting.. i missed you when you were on vaca, it's good to have you back. And as a One Woman show you will do great.. :)

Tammy Dunlap said...

Oh no I hope he heals fast!Good luck.

JamWest1007 said...

UGH! Being a one woman show is NOT easy...and almost never fun. Here's hoping that Chris's ankle heals quickly and that the coming weeks provide you with smooth sailing. I'll send positive thoughts and energy your way. :-)

Sorry to hear about Chris! Hope all goes well for you both...and for your little guy, too.

Sometimes I actually hope you DON'T post something, because I'm too addicted and stay up way too late downloading stuff. :-) So, thanks!
