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.

No matter where I go in the future I'll remember 43 things.

Collectorofcats Here it is

A This & That January Scavenger Hunt 2013.

A list will be posted as soon as I get a final draft. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats I'll see what I can do

If I come up with a passable list and a good name for a scavenger hunt, before someone else does, I’ll start the goal. Otherwise, I’ll likely join as well if someone else beats me to it. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats Another thing you can do....

is go to the top of the page of each goal and click on the box Now You Can and then click remove. It will then give you the option to remove it forever or just give up. If you click give up you can readd the goal later if you want. Also, it will be saved in a list you can readilly find. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats Just now!

Earlier, I used all my cheers. Then suddenly, an unused cheer appears on my lifelist page. I click on my subscriptions and attempted to cheer a post and… says “sorry. you have used all your cheers for today.”

Collectorofcats January 1, 2013

As it is the new year, I plan to reinvent this goal and make it a lifelong value rather then just a priority. What is past is past. The only thing that is important is what I do today and all tomorrows.
I will look over my prior entries and reinvigorate what worked and dismiss what didn’t.

Wish me luck. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats Reinvigorate and Reinvent Yourself........


I like the title of the new January 2013 bootcamp goal. It goes with the new year. Keep what’s important, change what needs changing, reinvigorate what has become stale and forgotten and reinvent yourself using the goals you have in your arsenal you call your life list.

In preparation of 2013, I looked at my life list and made a few changes and revisions. Anything regarding 2012 has been marked completed. Ongoing health goals are still at the top of my list. but instead of treating them as simply priorities of the past year I plan to reinvigorate and reinvent them as values to remain with me all my life.

I removed several goals I’ve had on my list for a long time. I didn’t just remove them so they no longer exist. I put them in the given up collumn which will allow me to re-add them to the active list at any time I want to pursue them again. And it isn’t that I’ve actually given up on them. For now, I don’t feel they are urgent goals for me to work on.
I still have a number of goals left on my lifelist which I will review and post entries either daily or weekly and will keep me in touch with my fellow 43ers.

I am going to continue to add and participate in goals that allow me to share with my fellow 43ers and enrich my life as well as others throughout the year: Birthday goals, scavenger hunt goals, fun goals. This is a social site after all and sharing my own progress and encourageing others in their progress is what 43 Things is all about.

As far as January goes, I will begin by giving myself a pep talk.
“Don’t just post a one time entry on this goal as a sign you are participating as you have in the past, actually do something everyday as connected with this goal and boast of your achievements as they happen.” 19 months ago

Collectorofcats New Year Eve

1. The anticipated snow in the forecast didn’t begin until after I got to work. I had a 5:30 AM start time and the snow didn’t begin until after 6 AM and was coming down heavy in minutes. Because the temperatures remained warmer then freezing, the snow was easily removed from my car when I got off work and the roads were well sanded and manueverable for the drive home.

2. I brought our granddaughter to spend new years with us and she had a great time playing in the snow. She made a snowman all by herself and we had a great time throwing snowballs.

3. We watched The Rescuers/The Rescuers Down Under together on my laptop before I sent her to bed. I actually fell asleep myself watching a movie but set my alarm on my phone to wake me up just before midnight.I woke both granddaughter and Hubby up at midnight to wish them both a Happy New Year. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats Buckles

I’ve been looking through a box of pictures (very old) and the name Buckles keeps coming up. That may be the maiden name of my great grandmother on my mother’s mother’s side. I’m not positive but I think I may be able to mark this completed for now. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats 23 The Rescuers, 29 The Rescuers Down Under, 37 Tarzan, 21 Robin Hood, 18 The Sword in the Stone, 46 Chicken Little

Thanks to my secret santa, I got the dvds of The Rescuers/The Rescuers Down Under. I do not have a dvd player at this time but my granddaughter and I watched both movies last night on my laptop and she and I found them both delightful.

Also, granddaughter brought a few of her Disney books for me to read to her that she got for Christmas and I realised I had seen the Tarzan, Robin Hood, The Sword In The Stone and Chicken Little movies done by Disney. So I am marking them done as well. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats Manicotti was always the dish my daughter asked for on her birthday and I just decided to fix it for Christmas this year

It isn’t difficult at all. It is mostly a cheese mixture stuffed into a cooked pasta shell then covered with sauce and baked for about an hour. I generally put ground beef in the sauce as my husband is very carnivorous but it can remain vegetarian without. The cheese mixture I use has ricotta cheese as the base with shredded mozerrella and grated parmesan. Some recipes call for eggs and some without. There are a whole range of different stuffings to put in the manicotti shells. I believe there are recipes using crab and shrimp and other meats and there could be a vegan recipe or two out there as well. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats Lasagna! I love it

I fixed manicotti on Christmas instead of a traditional turkey or ham. It took only about 20 minutes preparation then about an hour to bake. I’m thinking an easy dish for the hoildays makes a less stressful time in which to spend with family. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats 39. Silent Night

Today’s fresh snow promises a silent night around here in spite of the frollicking of my granddaughter. Even now, it continues to snow and may do so into the night. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats 28. Kwanzaa

I guess I cheated by looking up the official Kwanzaa website. I use to find kwanzaa paper in the stores but not this year.

An old Christmas sweater my husband got as a gift years ago found in the back of the closet where most end up.

Collectorofcats 21. End of the World (Mayan Calendar)

Taken a week ago Thursday (Dec. 20), I joked about the end of the world coming soon. The highspeed winds made visibility nearly zero for driving although we really didn’t have very much accumulation of snow.

Collectorofcats For Sunday, December 30

1. I spent a lazy morning online and off. Also rearranged my cabinets and found a place for my muffin pans even if just temporary for now.

2. Hubby went to help a friend work on his house. This allowed me to have an afternoon all to myself with a bubblebath followed by some Mike’s hard pink lemonade while watching City of Angels which I had recorded the evening before on the DVR. Even though I’ve seen the movie numerous times, I still cry at the end when Meg Ryan dies.

3. A large green salad for supper. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats 10. Human Rights Day

When it comes to human rights, how we treat our four legged companions is an indicator on how well we treat our fellow humans. Believe me, this cat knows her rights.

Collectorofcats 37. Pudding (figgy or otherwise!)

I cleaned out my cabinet yesterday and got all the pudding lines up. I was surprised by how many pistachio boxes there were and especially by the expiration dates.

Collectorofcats 11. Noodle

Now that all the holiday spending is over over nd property taxes have been paid, this is what my grocery budget can afford.

Collectorofcats I will

But don’t hold your breath. Being the great procrastinator that I am, it may be next December before I finally get around to doing it. But I’ll try to make it sooner. 19 months ago

Collectorofcats Awhile Back

I posted a quote from seasonoflove’s life list about me. I really liked this quote and wanted to continue sharing it in her memory. 19 months ago
