So Long, Meals-On-Wheels

One of the major effects I have experienced due to Parkinson's or the medication I take for PD has been to slow me down considerably. I get out of my car slower; in my car slower; I walk slower or not at all; I shower slower; I eat slower; I get out of bed slower; I think you get the idea. If I were to plot a line indicating my speed from month to month the line would be a downward sloping line.

Taking my speed changing as a signal, and getting another call from the Headquarter of Meals on Wheels inquiring about why sometimes I go over my time limit; I decided that I should email the volunteer coordinator to suggest we should start the process of replacing me. Well, it turns out that a lot of people have been applying to do Meal on Wheels so that is not a problem. The coordinator Richard suggested making the change immediately.

I still have much to keep my days full including a serious backlog of books that need to be repaired for the Friends of the Library so I'm not worried about boredom.
