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.

manage my fibromyalgia (read all 2 entries…)
Flare up :(

Today and yesterday have been extremely painful. I tried medicine, stretching, and resting. Nothing has helped yet :( Pain is mostly in my neck and shoulders. Have been looking up home remedies for pain.

Have my crochet patterns published. (read all 2 entries…)
All sent

I sent all my patterns. I will hear more from them next year. All I can do now is wait. :)

manage my fibromyalgia (read all 2 entries…)
It's 1 a.m. so I'll be impressed if this makes sense in the morning.

I am not sure if this is a good or a bad thing but I now know of 2 meds that DON’T work for me. Gabapentin (Neurontin) and Topamax the gabapentin made me tired all the time which is not the way to be with a 1 1/2 year old. and the Topamax which I started 3 days ago hit me horribly today. I woke up with a migraine. I was told it treats migraines so already a bad sign. Then once I started moving around this morning I was dizzy and I felt like I was moving in slow motion, and like I was going to throw up. So I guess atleast I know that those won’t help my fibromyalgia since they didn’t ease my pain. I am still not understanding why they refuse to give me a MRI to rule everything else out. I’ve had this for 8 years shouldn’t I have had one by now?

I have one more pattern to complete then sending it to Leisure Arts!

meet my sisters

I have 2 younger sister who I am extremely close to, and two that have no idea I exist. How weird.

I just need to get over my phobia first

I have panic attacks when I drive. This has to stop.

Open my own craft supply store.
This is definitely one of the highest on my list

I want this so bad. I just don’t know where to begin. I know I want to sell craft supplies and also have a room to teach crochet, and wire jewelry making.
