I am a wife. I am a home schooling mom of 5. But I’m not one of the homeschool mom’s that spends hours searching up different curriculums and crafts. I don’t like to chat about it over coffee. It, in fact, bores me. I’ve found a great curriculum that I’ve used for years and I’m sticking to it. I teach my kids- that’s it. I’m not part of a homeschooling group, because I hate it when I come across competitive Moms who think that their kids are the smartest children in the universe in EVERY subject. I want to give them a tongue lashing and that would bring drama, so I avoid. 🙂 I also like to garden on our 6 acres and can the produce there-of. I do NOT garden the entire 6 acres. Maybe a 1/3 of an acre? I do NOT like to clean. Be forewarned. I may complain about this occasionally- usually grouchily and with many, varied negative descriptions.

I am also a singer/songwriter in the roots-rock and Americana vein. I have released two official roots projects. “Backwards” was released in September 2007. It did pretty well, but I stupidly tried to keep doing Christian music. Can we say “square peg, round hole”? So I had a light bulb moment a little over a year ago and realized my success was in the roots and Americana world. So in early 2011 I started working on a new full-length Roots-Rock/Americana project. I released “Black Ball” on January 3, 2012. I heart it VERY much! It’s already doing well. As of January 30, it has been #5 on the Roots Music Report’s Roots Rock Internet chart for two weeks running. It was also #41 on the Roots 66 charts for the week of January 24. Fingers crossed that it keeps getting up there! You can check out my official music web-page here: www.erisareimusic.com
The rest you will find out as I blog. My goal is to blog at least once a week.
