It sounds like your transmission filter screen is getting clogged up. Then after you turn off the car, the debris falls back out and it starts to flow fluid again. This is fairly common on older Hondas and usually requires the transmission to be rebuilt. One thing you can try is to flush the fluid. It may pull enough debris out to get you some more time from the transmission.
