I love the use of the "not my first rodeo" cliche.

As for amazon, works fine if it's not out of stock or if the third party sellers are asking multiples of what the item should cost if it wasn't in demand.
HAHAHA trust me I know.. I was one of those people you hate because I would go buy the next hot toy for like $30 and around Christmas sell it on Ebay for $150

It's been a pretty crappy day for me. Made 20 in spite of it, and under grueling circumstances. My (adult) daughter, who lives with me along with my granddaughter, went unhinged. And it's happening more and more since she decided to go off her meds (bipolar and personality disorder). This really sucks since there is nothing I can do about getting her help, and nothing I can do to fix this. Her daughter, 15, is going to talk to a counselor at school tomorrow, but not sure how that will help except for documenting her experience with this. Her mom is threatening her with moving into a shelter (to get away from me, who she says is toxic). It's just awful. I would love to move out, and mind you, it's my own home, but her daughter is afraid to be alone with her. I can't find a solution to this.
I realize it's probably a delicate balance when deciding how things might affect the daughter and the granddaughter if this action were taken, but if someone thinks the 15 year old might be in a dangerous situation and reports it, wouldn't child protective services get involved?

Does you state have a crisis hotline? You might want to call it and see what resources they can help you with.

If this were my state, I'd be calling my state's crisis hotline and I bet shortly after, the local police dept's Crisis Intervention Team would be showing up to talk to my family to evaulate and figure out what resources are available and if the granddaughter needs to go into temporary protective custody of the state's child protective services agency if they felt the daughter was a threat to the safety of the granddaughter.

this topic has got me depressed. :wink: I've never had kids but got to thinking in this discussion the few decades I've wasted not doing toy research in the spring and selling it for multiples of my cost in December when parents get desperate for the popular toy of that Christmas season.

a nice night batch while listening to the rain would be nice tonight
one of my fav batches show up but was gobbled up quickly - I guess because everyone is like us and looking for stuff to do instead of having a good selection that we can be picky.

Yeah, if you can possibly find anyone online or somewhere whose been through a similar situation and see what they've done, it might help you out.

Warning if you have Apple devices - you might receive a phishing email appearing to be from Apple but it's not, looking to get your AppleID and password.

I noticed it was a phishing attempt and ignored it but it's very well done that if you aren't looking at some of the hidden details (like the "from" of the email or the link URL when you hover over it), you could be taken.
