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.

I actually sewed on the new sewing machine that I bought over the summer.

The oldest grandson keeps saying it is his, and his mother keeps saying it is hers. I tell them both they are both wrong. I bought it for all of us. Perhaps next week I can get back into this goal and get it done. I only have the clothes to make.

Well baby is going to be a year old August 1st....

Mom does not really want them in her house. I still want to finish them. I signed my two grandson’s up for sewing camp. It was three hours a day, for five days. The younger said he didn’t really like it, but was glad to be a part of it. The older loved it. They both came home with pillow case they made along with a tote bag and a sewn wallet.
Through this I ended up buying a $500 sewing machine. The oldest sat down with the guy and went through on how to use the machine, what foot to use for what. How to thread the machine and bobbin and other things. He is ten. He asked questions and after more than an hour he told the guy okay I am done and we are ready to take the machine. Since bringing it home he has made another tote bag for his younger brothers birthday gift and has started a second one for his other younger brother. He is going to teach me how to use the machine so I can finish the clothes for Raggity Ann and Andy and the five library bags I started last year.

Baby is here. She came August 1st.

I cut out the clothes. I had to go back and get another yard of material to finish cutting everything out. I started bags for my grandkids and so I need to finish sewing them first.

The baby is coming any day now.

Not going to complete this goal before she comes, but I am going to complete. Found once I took everything out of the comtainer it was in that the clothes were the only thing left to do. Turns out I now longer have the pattern or the clothes I cut out. I was lucky enough to find another pattern today that is going to work, so now I have to cut out the clothes again and sew them up. Pretty excited about this.

Well I dug out the tote these are in...I have to take a closer look, but I think...

all I have to do is make the clothes and these well be done. Now I well need to get the sewing machine back from my daughter and get my tail busy on these. I will do this when I get back from NJ May 10th. Time is just slipping, slipping, slipping into the future~
