Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Get more sleep

11 cheers

I’ve had difficulty sleeping again; I wake up with my heart pounding in my chest and in my ears, thinking of too many things that make me frightened.

I had an awful dream the other night, from which I awoke crying. I opened the newspaper to see a headline stating that another soldier was killed in A-stan…N’s father’s name was splashed across the page and I crumpled in a heap, sobbing for the loss – For N’s loss I guess, certainly not mine. It hasn’t been mine in over 7 years. Only a couple more weeks until he is home safe. I shouldn’t give a flying fuck, but I do…for N.

More nightmares last night – terrible images, when I did sleep. We’re back to this for now, I guess.

Time to play

Catch up!! Oh my goodness – with D sick this week, it’s been a terrible week for catching Zzzzz’s, so I will have to try and make up for the many lost hours if possible next week. If that means going to beddy-bye same time as D, so be it.

I’ll just have to record my Corrie..

Too good

to finish watching later – the movie ’ 7 Pounds’, that is. I had every intention of getting to sleep at a decent time last night, but I had begun watching this movie, on the recommendation of a friend. As much as I kept looking at the clock thinking to myself, ‘oh god, I’ve got to stop and go to bed, the alarm goes off in 6 hours!’ – I just couldn’t. At 1120 I finally did.

Still not done the movie, tonight perhaps.

Yes, I’m a bit drowsy this morning.

Oh dear...

Spent the day with family/friends we love immensely -got up early and drove for over an hour and had breakfast at Chateau MOntebello, and look! – now it’s 11pm and I’m just getting ready for bed now!

So much for ‘more sleep’ this weekend. I daresay it was worth it, as we had a lovely time.

Eight pm

is when I hit the sack last night – I was so tired, I was hurting all over. I slept almost completely through until 0500, except for the one time I had to get up with D…her soother fell out, as usual.

I feel fairly good today, but ask me in another 11 hours or so after my shift ends….!

This weekend

I asked my husband if he would mind if I took naps when I felt I needed it; Saturday I slept in until 0800, got up, vacuumed then promptly returned to bed until noon. Then I was sleeping again by 915 in the evening. Yesterday, I had a nap from 3pm-5pm. I haven’t had the opportunity to sleep this much in years – certainly since before my youngest was born!

Never mind the housework at night – it’ll keep. I’ve got to get myself to bed at night!
