Thoughts from an Average, but slightly neurotic, woman

I'm looking for words that mean 'Oh dear" or something like that. OOFTA, my mother says, is similar to OH dear in Norwegian. I also have Oy Vey (yiddish), Dagnabbit(Old man), Hijole (spanish) and AY ya-aye ya-aye (who knows). Someone said Acht du liebe , though translated to 8 you love, meant something like oy vey. What do you say? What did you parents say? what, my multinational friends, are some other ways of saying this?
