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.

number 4

so my sons father and his fathers father are the main male role models in his life as he lives wit h them. well there also the biggest pervs out there. and they dont have the common sense not to say things around a 4 year old. so yesterday i had my visit with my son and he said something out of the blue. so we were all playing with the ball with glenn at the campground and glenn walked up to my sister paula and said “we dont talk about pussy anymore” and we all thought we misheard him so had him repeat it. well we thought wrong it was what we heard! kids say the darndest things! i guess all i could say is if your a parent and you dont want your ex to hear what you talk about dont say it in front of your child! lol

not there yet

i got up to a size 24 which was an eek moment for me. since my husband had asked for a divorce ive been loosing weight. i can squeeze into size 20s now. id still like to get to this goal of a size 16. not for weight purposes so much as i fealt better about myself at that size. and then id like to make the new goal of a size 14. but i know its hard for me to get smaller without going back to the bulemic behaviors so i wont even try.

get a divorce from my husband
single for a couple months now

ive been single for a couple of months now and a goal of mine is to get a divorce from my ex, my husband. he had called me over a month ago and told me he wanted out of the marriage and to go file the divorce paperwork. so ive got legal aide willing to help me and it turns out he went into the house i was living in that he had left and took my pre divorce paperwork the lawyer sent me! and here i am looking for it the past week and he called yesterday saying he took it! some people can be impossible to deal with. so now i need to get ahold of the lawyer and get a new packet to fill out for them. its just extra time extra drama and even more proof to me that i need his crazy ass out of my life asap!
