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.

We haven’t spent any time alone together since January! Our relationship is falling apart, and we both know that in order to save it we have to date each other. I will set aside one night a week for him. We are also going back to counseling. I think counseling every other week, alternating with a date night is best.

I think Wednesday nights will be the right time.

went on a weekend retreat - alone!

It was sooooooo amazing. I truly love my boyfriend more than ever. He’s actually my fiancee. We are getting married in October.

The retreat was with 2 therapists who are amazing people. They will forever be in my prayers. These people have given us an amazing gift of their time. There were 9 other couples experiencing the same thing. Numan and I stayed in dormitory type beds and ate vegetarian food all weekend. It was all located in the mountains in Massachusetts. The snow we got was beautiful too.

I am so happy in my relationship!!!

We do it, but not enough.

We date once in a while. It’s so nice to re-connect with him. I get so giddy when I get ready for our dates.

This also helps my “fix my relationship” goal.

we're doing it!

We’ve been out a handful of times. Sometimes we take the baby and he is soooo well behaved. This Saturday I am taking my honey to a comedy show. My mom is babysitting. Can’t wait! I’m so glad I am doing this :)
