It sounds to me like maybe  you are taking on too many jobs and are not getting enough $$ for all the work. Are you UNDER pricing??  Most likely. You mention kids - how many &what ages? They are probably taking up a lot of you time & energy.  Any of them old enough to help out?  Maybe they could help gather equipment or prep work - covering boards; planning; making simple gumpaste decorations - even piping simple borders.  What's going on in your family life on the...
