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.

not having the same teacher this mod

I hated the thought of coming back to school, the break was long, but yet short, and then again with the kids home all 4 of them, it was too long. well anyway, to get my class schedule this morning and not have the stupid one, who doesn’t show up on time, or help you…she wasn’t on my list today, that mde me and still makes me HAPPY, at least for the next six weeks.


watching the kids open their small inexpensive gifts.. she liked this barbie doll head, she can put makeup and do her hair.
all smiles.

going shopping in the morning

for thanksgiving…..and there is NO line. I dropped the kids off@ school and then went to Kroger, and there was people stocking the shelves, and about 10 or less people actually shoping. so it didn’t have to do with money, just no poeple, no lines, and very happy AMY


getting enough sleep at nite, even if it means sleeping with the kids in their room. no little girl getting up at 4 am last nite, plus i woke up in a good mood.
