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.

go to alabama (read all 2 entries…)
One more week!

We leave for our trip in a little more than a week. Can’t wait! Hopefully it will be a great trip :)

start scrapbooking
Waaaay into it now!

I’ve started 3 different scrapbooks and can’t get enough. This truly may soon become my most favorite past-time.

Fix my Hottub
Just one of those things...

we haven’t gotten around too. We need to replace the jets and give it a good cleaning.

payoff a credit card
My husband's VISA

It’s gotten outta hand. Sure it’s not that bad, I’m sure theres people who would kill to have a balance that low, but it needs to be taken care of.

Buy an erotic costume
I have one already but...

it sorta doesn’t fit. I know this is probably has this on his list too!

get dental work done
"And when's the last time you've seen a dentist?"

It’s the question that every anti-flosser hates. I think it’s about time for me to go though. I know I have multiple cavaties and well I would like to still have all my teeth at the age of 40.

take better care of my skin
Lancome Cleanser

Going to start trying to use it nightly. I’m HORRIBLE about sleeping in my make-up. I know that drinking more water now is going to help me too.

learn to walk in high-heeled shoes
Every girl needs a pair

This is a look I’ve always loved, yet have never been able to pull off gracefully. Hopefully I’ll have it down before I start my career.

garden more
Little by Little

We bought this house last summer and couldn’t wait for Spring to come so we could work in the flowerbeds. It’s been fun so far, even though all I’ve planted is a Hydrandgea (sp?)

get pregnant
Hopefully soon

We’ve been trying for a little over a year. I think I’m going to ask to have my hormone levels checked at next doctor’s appointment. I’ve been charting still and have added B6 to my Prenatals as well as using the Clear Blue Fertility Monitor.

give up soda
Huge cut back!

I’ve gone from 12 a day to about 3 a week so I’m getting there! I really want to do it for my body after reading how it eats your brain. I knew it was horrible on my tummy but I never even thought about my brain (maybe thats a sign, it’s already started..hehe)

go back to Disney World
December 2007!

We have our trip booked and payed for. The only thing that may come in our way is if I do end up getting pregnant. Of course, that would be a wonderful thing, so I wouldn’t really mind missing out on our 2nd trip there.

finish my real estate classes
One down Six to Go!

I wish the school wasn’t so far away because I would have been done a long time ago! I’m done with Real Estate Math, officially. Now I need to register for the rest.

lose at least 50 lbs
Slowly but Surely

I’ve given myself a year to lose these 50 lbs so I won’t be too rushed. I’ve joined Weight Watchers and thats going okay I guess. Somedays it’s just so hard to stick to your points.

start my career in real estate
Century 21 Rocks!

Well I know where I’ll be working. I talked to my broker the other day. Now all I have to do is finish 6 more classes and take that dreaded test…ugh.

go to alabama (read all 2 entries…)
Going next Month!

We’re trying to see all 50 states and well of course Alabama is first when going in Alphabetical order. We have reservations for the end of April. We’ll see if it actually happens.

donate to locks of love
It's A Great Feeling To Give

Totally worth doing! You’ll feel so great knowing you helped someone who really needs it. Just make sure you have it done at a salon or you can really jack your hair up!
