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.

Make soap again

I guess I better buy some new soapmolds. I threw all my old ones out when we moved.

be healthier
Making choices

no i can’t get rid of crohn’s disease or any of the arsenal of drugs it carries with it…that’s just one of those thigns i can live around.
what i can control is the food that goes into my body, the exercise i (don’t) get, my stress management (or lack thereof)’s time to start making better choices for myself.

laziness just isn’t an excuse, anymore. not physical nor mental laziness is going to hold me back from feeling good inside my stretched out skin.

Paint Every Room in My House
Seeking Colors!

This offwhite boring crap has to go! I painted the upstairs hall bath a nice bright-light blue, and it looks so cheery. Time to tackle the rest of this dump.

Now to decide which room gets it next…
Powder room: burnt orange?
Kitchen: Tomato Red?
Laundry room: get rid of the Pee-stain Yellow and turn it Lime Green?

It is color I seek, and color I shall find!!
