Pain Doc Day

Today was the monthly visit to the pain doc, which requires trekking across town to Fascist County. It was somewhat amusing to see "Drought Threat Level 4 Measures in Effect!" right next to CVS watering their little patch of grass.

The doctor doubled my breakthrough pain med, so that I'm allowed to take it more often. Maybe that'll help.

It's always nice to have that time with Sam, although I feel bad that he has to take time off to get me there. We try to schedule multiple appointments, but one of Katie's doctors just totally flaked today, so that one had to be rescheduled. The orthodontist appointment had been rescheduled to allow for that appointment, so now we have that to look forward to, too. Oh joy.

When Katie and I were out on Monday, we found that two places we needed to go to were closed for Confederate Memorial Day. Excuse me? Since when is it a state holiday? I know we didn't take that day off from school when I was growing up, not even in Alabama. When did this resurgence occur--as backlash for MLK Day, maybe? I find it ridiculous.

Con­fed­er­ate Memo­r­i­al Day has been a state hol­i­day for as long as I’ve known. My dad was a state employ­ee so he always got it off. How­ev­er, I’ve nev­er known any­one except the state offices to take it off, the schools nev­er closed for it.

Real­ly? I guess I don’t notice unless banks, post offices, and/​or schools are closed. And yeah, one of the places we need­ed to go to Mon­day was the driver’s license office. The oth­er was a Dekalb coun­ty office, though.

Some schools do, it seems. Not that I’ve had a great deal of expe­ri­ence with pub­lic schools in the last few years, but Katie tried high school last year and they had it off. It’s on the cal­en­dar for this year, too.

Real­ly? That’s sur­pris­ing. Is that Cobb Coun­ty? I guess since I went to Atlanta Pub­lic Schools, they were quite a bit more pro­gres­sive. :p You real­ly can’t see them tak­ing it off! And, Dekalb Coun­ty doesn’t take it off, either.

Con­fed­er­ate Memo­r­i­al Daty?! That’s a new one on me.
