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.

Despite Facebook Games Taking up my time

I was able to do a couple of productive things this morning and still make it to work on time. I emptied the dishwasher and did 10 minutes of stretching. I just need to get to bed on time and get up when the alarm goes off.

Not doing so well

Because of silly Facebook games. Unless you consider keeping up with the games productive. Not.

This morning

I cleaned the outside of the washer and dryer. I also cleaned some of the inside of the washer, and put away some of the clutter that was on top of the dryer. I love this goal. It’s Flylady to the max… I’m not doing a lot at one time, but it adds up.

This morning was very productive

My productive thing was supposed to be cleaning the dishes that had backed up in the sink (I know… a Flylady no no). I did that, and after heard dripping under the sink. Leak!! So the second productive thing I did was study the leak to figure out why. I found the problem, but it was a job for a plumber, not a helpless single lady. The plumber explained that the people who remodeled the kitchen when they flipped the house did a poor job of putting the pipes in after installing a new, deeper sink. He needs to re-do everything under there.

On Tuesday, when I first started this goal, I went out in the yard and pulled some weeds. Not a lot because it was still dark, but still. Babysteps.

Yesterday, I remember doing something, but not what. It wasn’t very exciting, obviously.

I like this goal and think I can keep it up. I have some time while the pets are eating their breakfast to do something each day.
