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.

RuCafé pour deux (kids on the side)

And so the Big Gray Damp begins. Thankfully I had plans for a girlfriend and her daughter to come over, so after dropping Isak off at school and hanging up our drenched umbrellas, I put on a big pot of coffee and set about a whirlwind tidy.

Happy for some quality time with a friend, happy the weekend is here. I’m even happy to see the rain – I love lying in a cozy bed with a book and hearing it fall.

Retroactive happiness…

May 20, 2013

  • Attending our dear friends’ wedding. They had perfect weather for their short but very sweet ceremony outside. Cheerful times and delicious food followed, and the kids were on their very best behavior (we had complements aplenty) so we stayed longer than we’d expected to. Our friends seem so very, very happy together. To love!
  • The cute little boy that kept bringing everybody cupcakes.
  • A big, bright blackberry stain on Iris’ lacy dress came out (much to my surprise).

RuWings at our feet

Today is the Terry Fox Run at the school, so I’m planning on going back there to cheer Isak on. I’ll see what bits and pieces I can get done around here before then.

It’s gorgeous out again – hard to believe it’s going to vanish in a stretch of dampness and bluster as far as the eye can see, but that’s the weather poohbah consensus. I’m glad it’ll be nice for the run – usually it rains.

Extra thoughts and energy to friends (and anyone) fighting hard fights, big C and otherwise.

Seasonal weather shifts made for an unhappy head for half of the day, but I’m finally managing to get on top of the pain. After a strangely foggy morning the sun came out in full force – elaborate clouds and smiling faces… I want to get outdoors as much as possible today and tomorrow, the sky is due to fall hard Friday.

I’ve heard from a much missed old friend that she’s coming to visit after being far, far away for nearly 5 years! She’s staying with us over Halloween and I can’t wait to see her! Seems like a good fire under the tush to get more done around here.

Retroactive happiness…

May 17, 2013

  • Friday! Full of staggered sunshine and rain.
  • Kicking the soccer ball around despite the manic skies.
  • The tightly budded iris Iris was given flowered in the window.
  • Warm & spicy Indian food.
  • Unwinding.



May 18, 2013

  • Isak’s belting ceremony – he did a beautiful job and was thrilled to get his new belt, even though we’re having to leave the school. We had very nice farewells, an invitation to come back and visit anytime, and left with a school hoodie, new friends, and lots of good memories.
  • My parents had come out for the ceremony and took us all for lunch afterward.
  • Showing our new place to my parents for the first time. They stopped by before heading back to White Rock and really liked it; think we made a great choice.
  • Tidying, measuring, making plans. There’s work to do, but it’s exciting!
  • Heading back to the old place for yummy leftovers and Lincoln. 10 months ago

RuFlying wheels

Too much adrenaline on the morning walk to school – I’d stopped at a bus shelter to put my jacket over the stroller because it had started to rain. Not 5 minutes later I was on the way back from dropping Isak off, heard a screech of brakes, and saw a car blaze through the intersection we’d just crossed, spin, bounce off the meridian, then slam into the same bus stop, just missing a couple who was sitting there. Really, really scary.

The driver didn’t seem injured (though who knows, he hit hard), and fortunately everyone else was just badly shaken, but honestly, these incidents make me so, so angry. This was a busy intersection right by the school with kids/parents all around for the morning drop-offs, it’s raining, the person was a new driver (N on the back)… I hope they throw the book at him.

I realized after I left that I’d seen the whole thing from a different angle (and possibly earlier) than the people at the bus stop, so I should probably have waited to speak with the police. I saw my neighbor there taking numbers, so I’ll talk to her this afternoon; see if they need any additional witnesses. I’m so grateful nobody was injured, at least not blatantly.

There are so many reasons to s l o w – d o w n.

This is turning into more of a journal entry than a to-do list. I’ll add a couple of new things and try to finish off some of the lingering ones.

RuThey're here!

The package arrived in the mail today! We opened it excitedly when Isak got home from school, but unfortunately only had 4/6 of the AAA batteries we needed. M is picking some more up on the way home from work.

I finally figured out how to wrench off the holster so the battery area is accessible, so we’ll be testing them out soon! I’ll report back – happy to be checking another goal off!


Update: 7:30pm – So far these are great! We quickly figured out how to use them properly and can hear each other quite clearly from across the complex. There’s a button I can hit to get his attention (and vise versa), and switching back and forth is easy.

They’re small, feel fairly sturdy, and we’re all set with rechargeables. We’ll see how long it takes to drain them, it may make sense to turn them off if he’s out for a long while and ‘check in’ at certain times. Fun!

Now he won’t have to stop playing with his friends and run back home as often/I won’t have go out and chase him down when I need to get in touch. And I gather we can use up to four if we really like them and ever feel like picking up another set. Two thumbs up! Over and out…

RuAutumny Monday

And right on cue the sky is full of leaves and rainfall. We had a busy weekend – extra long, if you count the lack of school Friday – we made the best of it, despite some extreme wetness.

It feels as though we fit a week into the weekend: rested, play, exploration, furniture assembling/placement, visits with friends, pampering, shopping, new hardware for the house… I’m feeling fresh and accomplished.

RuFreedom - Pro-D Day!

Friday! And no school today, which meant I could sleep in a bit, which was lovely. There is rain on the horizon (a big, blustery stretch they’re saying), so I want to make it outside with the kids before the sky falls – inside stuff can wait until later.

The open house at the school last night was great – we met the teachers (I really liked both of them) and other parents, saw the classroom (well laid out and they have their own smart board) and checked out all the interesting projects the kids have been working on. I feel really, really good about the school.

I’m incredibly happy that the weekend is here, feeling motivated and hoping we get a lot done, balanced with rest and fun.

RuThanks!

It’s a great suggestion. I tried acupuncture (both traditional, electro, and mugwort/moxa) for a while – years ago when my migraines were even more frequent and intense I was seeing a pain specialist. It was definitely helpful, but I find it too hard to get around (especially with two kids in tow now) to see someone when I’m in the throes.

There’s a nasal spray / injection medication that works well for me. It costs an arm and a leg, but is worth it for a bad bout – especially if I’m sick to my stomach and can’t keep pain meds down. Unfortunately it isn’t compatible with breastfeeding, which I’m still doing. Once I’m finished I’ll stock up again.

I’m feeling much, much better today, thank-you.

I wonder if any acupuncturists here make house calls?10 months ago


RuRe-feathered

I’m feeling surprisingly good; enjoying the not-pain. I managed 5 hours of sleep last night too, which is great for me lately. Isak was a dream right from waking up, helping with everything and in a brilliant mood, singing and dancing – it brightened everyone’s morning.

Yesterday the gray skies flipped into bright blue, white clouds like piled snow, and sunshine to burn… I didn’t want to squander it so we stayed out for an extra long time. Today is strangely undecided – it reminds me of a giant blank screen waiting for someone to type something.

This evening is the open house at the school – I’m looking forward to meeting Isak’s teachers and hoping M doesn’t get stuck in traffic on the way home.

RuFound the old ones!

Ha! Thanks, Google. That’s what we had in the good ol’ days! Archer Space Patrol walkie talkies from Radio Shack! 10 months ago


RuLXT118VP

Why? Not just because walkie talkies are fun (which they are, I remember the ones I had as a kid with gloriously nostalgic pangs – trips through the forest, being spies, the painful static/feedback, learning morse code to send beepy messages with…), there is also a practical safety reason: we’ve recently started letting Isak go out by himself.

He’s allowed out close to home, and for small chunks of time that increase with proven responsibility, but I love the idea of staying in touch this way in case he has any problems or gets lost in playing with his buddies and forgets his check-in time. We want him to start having some bigger kid freedom, but this will give me piece of mind too.

We have ordered these and are waiting eagerly by the postbox for their arrival, which should be in the next week or so. 10 months ago


RuBrain: the pain and the drain

I’m rocking a migraine today. I think it’s on the way out, but between wacky weather and REM hours I can count on my thumbs lately, I need to carve out some rest.

Today is Isak’s first Sharing Day, he’s pretty excited about it. I’m looking forward to meeting Isak’s teachers tomorrow evening at the school open house.

I’ll do what I can today, but down-time and getting my head right is a priority, otherwise I won’t have the energy to do anything else.

RuGroggy fog

The plan was to go to bed at a non-ludicrous hour last night, but just as I was pulling the covers up and trying to quiet my head down, I heard Iris calling me. She stayed up for nearly two hours not wanting me to leave, and I didn’t want to deal with her shrieking waking everyone else up too, so I stayed. I’m guessing the moon is probably full or close to it, both kids (and me too) tend to get noticeably loopier when it’s come full circle.

Lots of things to do, keep plugging away at, try to finish… better choices to make – being tired and wired makes me crave chocolate something fierce. I’ll try to fight it! And maybe have a nap if possible. I’ll do what I can…
