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.

We did it...

Last weekend we drove her to Arcata! What a beautiful place. She is going to love it there. She’s already applying for jobs, she’s settled into her new appartment. She loves her roommates. She remembered most everything! I’ve only needed to send up a few items. ... Now its just time to clean up the rest of her room and move everyone else around!

My Eagle Scout!!!!

Tonight I watched my ever so nervous son enter into a board room of 4 panel members of his Eagle Board of Review. I saw him exit and wait anxiously while the panel discussed his worthyness of such an honor. When they called him back into the room to infom him of the decision, I think I may have seen him shake in his shoes. Watching him exit the room with such a relief on his face, was absolutely priceless! He has been working soooo long and hard to acheive this! I couldn’t be more proud of him!

Last night...

I boutht a suit. It has been 2 years since I’ve been in a pool.

Its not that I can’t swim at all, its just that I really don’t like being in the water. I’m not secure in it, and I don’t like feeling insecure.

I guess now, I should use the swim suit! YIKES!

For the few minutes he stayed up longer this morning to spend time with me, when he was so very tired after working all night. I hope he has a restful sleep!

be more thankful (read all 33 entries…)

I am thankful for so many things…
For my family, my job, my community, for all of the blessings God has bestowed upon me, for the country I live in, for the food in my refridgerator and cupboards… I could go on and on. Its time to remember how blessed I am and to stop worrying about everything else.
