This afternoon when I was running errands, I stopped by my regular doctor's office to make an appointment. Usually, it takes me two or three weeks to get in. Today, they said they could see me tomorrow. This is the second time this has happened recently. I wonder what it means. Are people going to the doctor less because of the economy? Is insurance not covering as much as it used to? Maybe it's just random chance though.
On the way home it seemed like every other house I passed had a "For Sale" sign in front of it. I've noticed a huge increase in houses for sale lately. With interest rates so low, you'd think people would be snapping them up, but they aren't. I have this uneasy feeling that something has fundamentally changed, but I can't quite put my finger on it. The economy in Dallas is actually a lot better than in many parts of the country, but people still act like the sky is about to fall. The dogs certainly aren't worried. They've had their dinner, taken their evening walk and are now sleeping on top of a pile of blankets on the bed.
