So much so, that I actually am going to have to work a little at home tonight just to try to catch up.

REALLY SLOW... and typically we have our hours cut and she will cut back on employees. I have been there 3 years this month and I am one out of two full time employees. We have right now one college freshman that works only on saturdays. Well this summer has been the worst.. and I mean the worst out of the store 6 and a half year history. Well of course it has to do with the economy. Chocolate is a luxury,right? Well I have been debating this summer about going to go work at Hallmark. My friend works there and they offer benefits to key holders and she has spoken with her boss and he wants or wanted to see me. Well guess what happens..... the other FT employee and someone I THOUGHT was my friend has quit. Without any prior warning. *SIGH* Leaving me as the ONLY EMPLOYEE.
Now side note: My boss is also one of my dear friends.
Now how do I leave and not feel a huge sense of guilt, I would feel like I was leaving her high n dry.Everyone keeps saying leave you have to do what's best for you and yes I know this but I have always had this huge sense of loyalty to my employers. Which is way I stayed over 6 years at my last job. I hated it but I was very close friends with the owners.
Right now I am getting about 3 to 5 hours a day 3 to 5 times a week.. that DOESNT cut it. I am used to 35 to 40 hours a week. How do I survive and not hurt anyone's feelings in the process??

Surely she'll understand that you have to look out for your family and monetary interests. She may even want to try and work it out so that you can work part-time while working at Hallmark or maybe even pay you under the table for any extra work you do there if you go full-time at Hallmark.
Good luck, no matter what happens!!
