Case of the disappearing homework

Starting today, they started a new system at school with Warren where he looses one point for every class that he doesn't have his homework ready to turn in, apparently and totally unbenounced to me, this has been becoming a very bad problem. All this time I've been looking at his agenda book and making sure he had all his assignments done, or at least done enough that I believed him when he said he would finish it at school in the morning, and then that afternoon told me he did.

These assigmnents I have seen done. He was three days late handing in a Language Arts paper that he couldn't find. Where was said paper? In the front of his agenda book the whole time.

Tonight he is redoing yet another assigment that I know he had done, because somehow, someway in the 1 mile ride between home and school, it mysteriously entered that same realm where socks go, when they flee from the dryer.. the same realm where my sanity takes its weekly vacations. I'm not sure how any of it gets there. I'm pretty sure Warren's homework didn't just up and decide it wanted to be someplace other than the dark scary recesses of his blue canvas backpack, so I'm as at a loss for this as his teachers.

My only explanation is that there is a homework fairy who digs thru children's backpacks while they are sleeping and steals papers, like the toothfairy only malevolent. Actually come to think of it, I think this is more than a homework fairy.

This same fairy has been emptying out my dishsoap when I am not looking so that when I got to do dishes thinking I have a 1/4 of a bottle or so I discover I don't have enough soap to wash my hands. And that's just on her slow days. This same fairy spends money I could have sworn I had in my wallet, sereptiosouly takes money that was "gave to you mom" and makes it appear in another room, she eats all the poptarts and leaves the wrappers on the floor, makes other unexplained messes, and leaves water on the bathroom floor. She eats when no one is looking and leaves dirty dishes, she tracks mud on the just cleaned floor, and leaves the door open.

This fairy also has lots of friends. I'm not the only house with all these mysterious happenings. I've heard other people mention of mysterious beings with names like NotMe, SomebodyElse, IDidn't, and in our case IDon'tKnow.. A couple houses down they have a really busy one by the name of HowShouldIknow who has a brother names IDidn'tDoIt.

Now I just need to find me some fairy repellant...

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
