I was in a car accident today.  It's not a terribly severe one, but it is the most severe car wreck I've ever experienced.  My girls were in the car with me, and both of them were pretty shaken.  Maybe at how shaken I was?  I don't know.
We had to wait FOREVER for the police to show up.  I don't know if it was shift change or just what, but they didn't get to the scene for about 40 minutes.  Nobody was severely injured, so it was just frustrating, not life-threatening.
I've got mild whiplash (which is pretty freaky when you have a metal plate and screws in your neck), and Deborah has a pretty bad seat-belt rash.  Abigail is fine for now, but we are waiting to see how she feels tomorrow.
The accident was totally my fault and I feel so STUPID!

Thank you, God for watching over fools like me!

I'm glad you're all OK! It sounds scary. Hope your injuries and your girls are better soon.

Hi, I came over here for the History Hop but found a post about your car accident. I'm so sorry to hear - all the best.

God certainly was watching out for you, and I hope no more injuries show up in the coming days. Sorry you had to go through this.

I am so sorry to hear of your accident. I hope that you and your daughters have a complete and quick recovery. Accidents always leave you shaken. After I had mine (fender bender) I was super careful driving and always on edge for many months afterward. :(

Glad you're OK.
