  1. Great goals Raquel, I love how specific they are!

  2. Ooohh...I love goals! I forgot to make any!?!?! I'm gonna have to do that! I miss you...wish I were there, I would love to sew and bake bread with you! Love ya my friend!

  3. i love how you broke down your goals friend, i think iam going to copy you... thanks for the ideas

  4. Wow! You've listed some very specific goals- best wishes as you strive to accomplish them (no easy feat with 5 children!). I've got 4, and so I can really relate to many of the things you wrote about. Like you, I'm discovering that it's vital to put in time and effort for just ME in order to take care of everyone else! Good luck! :)
