well Becky glad to see from the whole thread I wasn't the only one going through whatever that was . I kinda dropped in and out too but I guess deadbeat customers, creditors, family obligations, general stress, and in my case weight gain after stopping smoking and the stopping smoking, lol, all will do that to a person. Got an outside job hoping to help with some of the monetary stress. Did that for almost 2 yrs and it caused some more stress because then I didn't have any time to do taxidermy much at all. So the customers I could depend on to pay were getting upset, my house looked like it was ready to walk away by itself...,etc. So Dec. 1st I quit my outside job and rededicated myself to my business. I definitely have to rework prices, scheduling, and generally the way I conduct business to keep from being taken advantage of but I'm over my funk and very optimistic for the future. So good luck to you and glad your working things out too.
