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.

Oh Dear . . .

So Friday and Saturday Mr. HC and I built the fence around our backyard at the trailorhood to contain the dogs and to provide us with some privacy. Fence and gates were completed yesterday. It looks good. Last night we took the dogs over to see the house and the yard and to get a feel for how we need the dog door to be and the ramp. We need a ramp for the danes. Gomez is O.K. on the stairs, but Morticia is pretty wonky and unsteady. We figured out the ramp and were supposed to start today . . .

First thing this morning we took all of Mr. HC’s tools etc from the garage over to the trailorhood. One of the attractions to this place was that there is a big workshop where he could stash all his tools which he used to work. YEEPS . . . not big enough.

I was super excited today because I sold

3 items on ebay and netted almost $400. I wanted to buy floorcoverings for the new house. Mr. HC reminded me about the tax situation . . . no floor coverings for now

With the pending move to the smaller house and yard

a good deal of purging is going to be required. Maybe the move is exactly what I needed to get this going into high gear.

Still no . . .

Maybe I have been drinking too much diet pepsi. I am going to only drink water today and see if that helps.

Dinner with “S” tonight. Pizza and wonderful wonderful conversation. Mr. HC and I got all the materials today to build the fence around the backyard at the trailhood. He set the posts tonight. He is working tomorrow, but Sunday we will build the fence. I walked around and made a plan for the backyard. Pretty awesome stuff!!!

After running around like a crazy woman yesterday taking care of all the paperwork required to move into the “trailorhood” I was exhausted. This morning I woke up refreshed and noted that in the night, while I was sleeping like a dead woman, one of my ebay aucions sold at the Buy it Now price. WOOT!!!!

I think I might have a new client!!!! This AMC that I applied to be on their panel (so long ago that I do not even remember) contacted , and asked for help on a “special assignment” from a new client. It just involves verification of info on previous appraisal and doesn’t pay alot, but it is a foot in the door for which I am grateful!!!

After talking to the person in the sales office at Palm Shadows and her telling me that she would not have an answer until Wednesday, she called back a couple hours later with good news.

Mr. HC and I are moving to the “Trailorhood” More information to come, but while many people may not get what we are doing, we are just tired of struggling and working to maintain a house that is just too big for us. This is going to be better in the long run. Will take some adjustments, but we have found a place thst we will still own, is 800sf smaller than the house we currently struggle to maintain and we can bring ALL the dogs.

More to come . . . I am emotionally, physically and mentally spent tonight

Yesterday I was at -.4 Today I am at +.6. Just hovering right around “the number” I might have been -.4 the other day from a little dehydration and yesterday rehydrated myself. It was really hot on Saturday for the yard sale, but we need to do it.

I am thinking that I am “there” but will wait another day or so before I declare this “done” and head down to DMV.

Really feeling pretty excited and proud of myself though.

As of this morning, I was at my goal, slightly below actually. I think I want to wait a day or two to make certain that I am “really” there. Mr. HC and I had a yard sale yesterday and it was seriously hot. I felt kind of dehydrated when we finished, even though I drank water all day.

I think I am at my goal, but just need to be certain.

Day 1 of yard sale . . . $170. I am runing out of good stuff to sell, but I have $170 more than I had when I woke up (and a heat stroke) Tomorrow is day 2. Mr. HC will be home and he is putting out his duplicate tools. That will get the numbers up!!! Yard sale proceeds going towards tax issue.
