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.

had the garage sale. nearly done with this, but I have one more trip to make to the BACA headquarters with the stuff I didn’t sell!



Garage Sale on Saturday!

I’ve collected items from everyone in the department, too, which is awesome!

I’m nervous and excited!



Garage sale countdown: 11 days.

More and more stuff is added everyday and I convinced the husband that we could sell the couch.

Thank god.

Time keeps on Tickin'

Postponed the garage sale again. Why? I’m not done clearing the crap out of my house. I decided last night that I didn’t want the glass shelf-thing that stands over the potty in the bathroom. (As opposed to the potty somewhere else? Geez. I’m redundant.)

So I threw away all sorts of dusty samples and old product that I don’t use. I consoladated all of my bobby pins (I only own about a billion- I just can’t tell until I get them all in one place). I moved all of my lotions to the vanity in my room.

I just can’t find a place for the hairbrushes. As soon as I can find a spot for those, then the glass shelf can be moved to the “sell/give away pile.”

sigh. it feels good.

stupid garage sale

so i decided to have a garage sale to get rid of all of the things i don’t use/need.

unfortuanately, i am now finding that i have an emotional attachment to junk. why do i need a bag full of puzzle pieces with one or two of the pieces missing? am i ever going to use it? i might, i tell myself, when i make that art collage that i’ve been thinking of forever. or lia might like to have them. or or or or or.

i need to stop making excuses and just get rid of the crap.
