I post that to provide you with the correct mental picture of the person with whom I just had the following email exchange --
Me: (Sent an email concerning my fall tuition payment, when it's due and to whom to send the check)*
Mom: I will get 'er done.
Me: Sometimes I don't know where you come from.
Mom: WHAT!!!???? My Mom and Dad!
In case you couldn't tell from the above photo, my mom is a 50-something short lady with glasses who works as a receptionist at a Catholic church. She is also not known for her hilarious jokes (ask my sister about that) so I'm not sure what happened today. Or why she felt the need to "get 'er done." Frankly my mom makes me smile. Although I will be checking her Lean Cuisine meals for recalls due to accidental additions of crack.
*Lest you think I am some mooch living off my parents, yes, they help me with my graduate school tuition but it's a loan and I'm paying it back!
