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.

This Road

All heavy laden acquainted with sorrow
May Christ in our marrow, carry us home
From alabaster come blessings of laughter
A fragrance of passion and joy from the truth

Grant the unbroken tears ever flowing
From hearts of contrition only for You
May sin never hold true that love never broke through
For God’s mercy holds us and we are His own

This road that we travel, may it be the straight and narrow
God give us peace and grace from You, all the day
Shelter with fire, our voices we raise still higher
God give us peace and grace from You, all the day through

Well today is the day

we start couples counseling. I’m kinda looking forward to it, but then again I’m not. It’ll be good for us I know, but I’m kinda scared of what’s gonna get pulled out of the woodwork. Guess we’ll have to wait and see. Hmm…

I think we'll be just fine...

I do the dishes, and cook, and clean, and do the laundry, I pay the bills, take care of the dog, and take care of my husband. He tells me I’m an amazing wife. He’s definitely learning to be an amazing husband. He’s never been one before so for a newbie he’s outstanding. :-) I love him so much.

So it was me

all along. I’ve been battling depression which makes me a very volitile person when confronted, obviously not making matters any better. So I’ve been to the doctor and have been on new anti-depressants for more than a month now, and am going to see a head shrinker. Already we’ve been doing better, disagreements are handled without raised voices, I don’t fly off the handle at every little thing, our sex life has even picked back up. So I think we’re doing pretty good. Acting like the newlyweds that we are. ;-)

I believe

it’s time to go to counseling. I can’t seem to get him to listen to me about anything. It’s time for intervention. And when I do get him to listen he never really heeds the information he’s given. Why are guys so hard?

I think...

we’re doing a lot better. When we argued before we would cuss at each other a LOT! Now if one slips we’ll say “Don’t cuss me” and we’ll sit down and talk thru what ever is bothering us. It’s a good thing. No ame calling. No cussing. Just sitting down and talking about our problems. It’s nice. I’m really glad I have such a wonderful husband. He’s my BFF! (=

We have our times

when we argue. But we haven’t had a bad fight in quite some time. I’m happy about this. Although there are times when we talk to each other but we don’t listen really. I’m trying to work on this. I want us to have a great marriage. I don’t want us to be a statistic. You know all the people getting married under 25 that get divorced within 3 years of marriage. I want us to be the exception to the rule and be married for 75 years. I love him and want us to have an amazing marriage. He’s my perfect match. (=

Trying So Hard

We’re doing very good with communication since he’s been gone almost a year now. We joke sometimes that once he comes home if we need to have a very intense talk then he’ll have to go sit in the car and call me. But I think we’ll do fine. We’re strong, and I have every confidence in us that we’ll do just fine. I’m still trying to be better than I am though.
