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.

- The Robots.

Same old story

I think I’m done with this – no great revalation, just reaafirmation that I’m overstressed, have no time for myself, and that affects my relationship on many levels i can’t begin to understand at a conscious level.

Plus the hormonal imbalance from nursing. I guess I do need to start the weaning process and find help with getting time for myself. Not sure how to do that….. but need to make an effort.

Phone appointment

Doctor ran me through a lot of questions.

A few pieces of good advice including the one which seems to be one everyone’s lips, and which I dread – wean the baby.

Also going to talk to a counselor next week to discuss possible mental aspects. Heavy discussions: always so successful when a 16-month old is in the room.

next step

Have a phone appointment scheduled next Monday at 1:30.

Baby step

Sent an email to my doctor asking if I should see her or a specialist….
Out of office until June. But at least I made initial contact.

Waterfall Nymph has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
