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.

Both cars are paid off! Washer is paid off…. Now we have 6k in credit cards, and 12k in offroad quads (total impluse buy that we regret every month!)

But at least we are getting there!

Support Our Troops
Christmas cards for troops

If you go to this web site,
How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!

It is FREE and it only takes a second.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these?
Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them.
This takes just 10 seconds and it’s a wonderful way to say thank you.
Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for others to do.

We can never say enough thank you’s.

Thanks for taking to time to support our military!

you can pick out a  thank  you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a  soldier that  is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets  it, but it will  go to a member of the armed services. Then check the rest of  the website for their responses.

I love my husband

So James and I have been married for 5 years now, we just renewed our vows and are expecting our first baby in march. things could not be better, not only are James and I closer but there is just this unspoken teamness, we seem to just fit. Not that our marriage wasnt great before, but it felt very one sided often and after much communication and working together, it just works for us.

But we have wonderful parents to thank because without them and their marriages we wouldnt value marriage as much as we do.
I feel sorry for those who give up in their marriages, who quit and take the easy way out, Now dont get me wrong if your in an abusive relationship I say find the dorr as fast as you can. But if your going through money issues or bicker all the time over stupid stuff then find out why and work together!
James and I did not have the greatest 1st year, he lost his job, we were flat broke, I hated the way he treated me, he hated my nagging and felt like crap because he wasnt working, it would have been very easy to walk away. BUT we loved each other and we found a way to get through it together, I hope that many more couples find their way and make it, instead of give up.
