All Shook Up

Well, I’m probably not going to be blogging this weekend, or at least for today.


I was in a car accident this morning and am pretty shook up. No one really got hurt, but I think I’m about to go to the hospital to get my knee checked out. I have a big welt where my leg slammed into the dashboard.

I was driving in the left lane of a 4 lane highway (2 lanes going one way, 2 going the other – no turn lane in the middle). So, I was in the left lane and this lady a little ahead of me in the right lane decided to make a u-turn and turned right in front of me, crossing over into my lane. I just couldn’t stop fast enough to not hit her, siince she just came into my lane to turn around.

I’m glad everyone is okay and no one was coming from the other direction because we ended up in the opposite lanes of traffic.

I’m pretty shook up and my leg hurts so we’re going to go have it checked out.

Anyways – if you don’t see any more posts from me, this is why.


Seat belts save! And airbags. Make sure you wear your seatbelt at all times. I don’t know what would have happened if I didn’t have mine on – the whole right front of my car is banged in from where she crossed in front of me and both my airbags went off.


  1. I am SO happy that you are okay! I know a bummed knee is nothing fun though. Wow. God was definitely looking out for you :)


  2. thank god nobody got hurt! it’s definitely a good idea to get your knee checked out, just to be sure

  3. oh no, brandi! i’m glad you’re ok! that’s so scary. i hope they give you a clean bill of injurylessness at the hospital.

  4. OH NO. That’s terrible!!! I hope nothing is wrong with your knee, and that your nerves settle soon. What a close one. :(

  5. Oh my god! I’m glad no one got seriously hurt! How terrifying. I hope your knee is ok. Take care <3

  6. Oh my gosh Brandi, so glad you’re okay!!! Keep us updated on your knee situation!

  7. OMG! I am so sorry about the accident, but glad to hear that you are o.k. I hope that everything is all right with your knee, and will be thinking of you :)

  8. Hope you are ok Brandi!! Praying for you!! Please drop us all a line to let us know you are ok!

  9. You have every reason to be all shook up. Those are scary times. Never ceases to amaze me, though, how much people turn their brains off when they get behind the wheel. I pick up far too many patients that way! Good idea to get your knee checked out, definitely not something to mess around with! Take it easy and take care :)

  10. Glad you are okay! It’s amazing how ignorant people are on the road. I hope everything is okay with your knee.

  11. I am so sorry, I hope you are starting to feel better. I think cars are terrifying – I’ve been in/seen some pretty bad accidents and now I am always jumpy when I’m riding in a car. I hope you did go to the hospital just to make sure everything was ok (and that everything was ok!).

  12. Oh my god, that’s so scary! I really hope you’re okay! Stupid driver! Take care of yourself!

  13. oh no, i’m glad no one was hurt, but scary nonetheless. hope your knee is ok!!

  14. I’m sorry that happened to you, Brandi! I hope everything checks out at the hospital. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts.

  15. Oh my goodness, I am so sorry to hear about the accident. Hope all turns out okay, but I’m glad you are safe and okay!

  16. OH MY GOODNESS!!! I hope you’re ok!! Keep me posted please, I worry like a typical Jewish mother!

  17. So sorry for your shake up! Good idea to get checked out. You may hurt more tomorrow after the adrenalin wears off. Take it easy and rest.

  18. Ugh I hate car accidents, but I’m glad you are okay! It’s obviously tough and can definitely shake you up. Hope you feel better!

  19. SO glad your okay, although the whole knee thing is not cool. Take it easy & I will keep you in my prayers!

  20. Ohhhh thankfully you’re okay! Take care of yourself and get some much needed rest.

    What the heck was the other driver thinking??

  21. Glad to hear you’re ok! Take care of yourself!

  22. Oh dear! So glad you were wearing your seatbelt and were not badly hurt! How very scary that must have been!

  23. Oh no brandi I’m sorry! I hope you did go to the hospital I was in an accident last year and didn’t go and regretted it later. My thoughts are with you.

  24. I’m so glad you’re okay!! That’s one of the scariest things to go through.

  25. Oh my goodness – I am SO GLAD you’re alright!

  26. That is so scary! I’ve never been in an accident where the airbags were deployed, but I imagine that’s scary stuff!

    I’m glad you are okay except from aches and pains, you are right about wearing that seatbelt!

    Take Care!

  27. Brandi, I’m just catching up on your posts – I’m so sorry about this accident!!! Car wrecks are so, so scary. I’m so glad to hear (from your more recent posts!) that you didn’t break any bones. I can’t believe you still blogged/baked/did laundry all weekend!! amazing.
