Last spring I wrote that I was not going to finish the year volunteering with the First Graders at Kaiser. I was not stable and could not promise to show up regularly. I had already missed most of the year and that was not good for the children.
I had planned to start volunteering again this month when school started. But I am finding I still tire easily and working with First Graders is a lot of being on my feet. A-Fib still pops up and kick the props out from under me. So I called it a no go for this year. I have to keep me strong and I have to think of the regular schedule small children need.
I will miss working with the children. And I will really hate not being with Ms. H. But you gotta do what you gotta do.
I will continue at the Marriage Factory. Staff can do my job if I can't make it. If I can give them warning, one of the volunteers comes in and does an extra shift. If we are real busy, I don't do much walking, runners bring the couples up to the Marriage Room.
I will find other things to write about. I will vent, rant, and maybe even make up things just to keep it interesting.
