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.

Finding peace after grumpiness and anger

4th of July was a disaster. She was soooo grumpy and whiny, and she didn’t enjoy it at all. It was so discouraging. :( It’s so hard for me to deal with her grumpiness and anger. I’m not sure if its normal or not.
Today she had a bad morning with her dad while I was at work, but in the afternoon, we kept it mellow. We did a science project in which we made a salt time, and I helped her to manage her frustration when it didn’t work right. Later we went swimming which we loved, and she even went into the hot tub with me a little bit. She played and watched videos on the computer while I graded papers. She took 81 photographs of two of her toy cats and then we made a slide show.

not doing too well

I’m not doing too well on this yet. I downloaded a timer, but I have many important legitimate things to do on the internet. I’m not sure how to set up a distinction between what is helpful and productive and life enhancing vs. what is a waste of my time.

3 weeks down

I’ve been doing my exercise plan for three weeks now. There’s no change in my weight, and I still have my flab. I don’t think it’s making a difference with the chronic pain I have at night.

But … I do have more ENERGY for sure. I can now make it through most of the day without feeling like I have to pass out, and the fogginess is lifting. This is really wonderful!
