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 had an Easter picnic at our house yesterday and it was beautiful out! :) Had shish kabob’s, veggies, fruit, chips. Delicious! :)
Got the niece and nephew twist out crayons and sketchbooks and brought out the genealogy stuff for this family that I have been working on.

Scrapbook and Dinner

Scrapped with my sister yesterday and had a great time. Then we got a call from our great friends and all of us went out for pizza. It was a wonderful day :)

Rage - Star Wars - Dinner with my Sister

So in the past month we’ve:
Gone the the Rage against the Machine concert- they’re great live..and no riots after :) everyone just went home.
Also- we went to the Star Wars exhibit at the science museum. It was neat to see the models and outfits close up- some of the pieces to these things were basic/simple items, and they made up an amazing series of movies.
Andddd Dinner with my Sister, just the two of us, I had a great time!

Scrapbooked the night away

I got to enjoy time with my sister, not think about work, have pizza, and scrap!

Went swimming last weekend

Summer is wonderful!

Chuck E. Cheese

Went here for a 2 year old’s bday today..everyone had fun playing games :)


We went to the Clutch concert last week- they’re great live. That was the second time we’ve seen them; I’d definitely go again.

Old Spaghetti Factory

We ate at the OSF yesterday and it was really good. We tried the spumoni (icecream of chocolate,strawberry & mint(?)); it was delicious :)


I watched an episode of Gumby on my lunch break the other day :)
and the Dinosaur aka Dragon (that’s what he called himself!) breathed fire :) I thought is was funny… :)

I want to:

Laugh More often
Do random things/go to random places just because!
